Here's an oldie but goodie and another one of our favorites from Howard Lamey of littleglitterhouses.com -- a glorious "stone"cottage.
See it from start to finish at http://bit.ly/1jGLoxA. Just keep scrolling down the page once you get there.
Also posted is another in our cabinet card obsession: the prettiest little girl with muff, pre World War One--followed by a 1955 still of actor Jeff Chandler--and finally a long ago scene from your editor's CANDYLAND THEMED putz village of 2015. Will put the entire series up one day....The pieces are 95% all vintage except for the broken train--which had been kicked to the curb and rescued. Again, click on the photos and enjoy.
