First up, from our growing obsession with vintage and antique photo cabinet cards--and postcards--- a Christmas angel, circa 1910, probably French.
It's followed by another one of our favorite putz houses from artisan Howard Lamey; the Dutch colonial double chimney. See more of Howard's fabulous work at littleglitterhouses.com
Next a great Christmas-y postcard featuring actress Romy Schneider and actor Horst Bucholz, who died in 2003. Bucholz was one of your editor's favorite actors--a must see in The Magnificent Seven, One-Two-Three, and Fanny. Courtesy of our friends at EFSP--more about Bucholz here. And finally, from 1963, a Jetson's lunchbox by Aladdin! Again, click on the photos and links.
A look back at "Dolly-wood"---over at the Cardboard Christmas forums; everyone has gone ga-ga for reproducing the putz houses from the Dolly Toy Co.
