With Valentine's Day around the corner, we thought you'd enjoy this 1939 "McCall Magazine Style" photo (no copyright restrictions). Love the pin!
It's followed by a children's record of Irving Berlin's White Christmas--1953--performed by among others, The Mitch Miller Orchestra and The Sandpipers! Love the graphics.
That's followed by another scan from the 1936 Woodwell Holiday Catalog--love "The Crayon Garage". And finally, a scene from Matthew Und's 2011 Valentine putz village; the simplicity of his crafted houses adds to the overall charm. Again, click on the photos and links.
One of our favorite faux flattie figures from Howard Lamey, The Snowman; a good starter project; more here.
