First up...a real treat and worth a second look...David Montreal's vintage cardboard Christmas chimney and other vintage and antique Christmas decorations-----there was so much made in Japan, the USA, and Germany Christmas goodness here, we just had to slice the photo into two for your close-up viewing pleasure!

It's followed by a little inspiration from the 1942 edition of Child Life Magazine. A paper teeter totter.  Again, click on the photos and links.


One of our putz house crafters turned us on to this ETSY shop called Red Star Vintage and we recently stopped by for another visit.  Wow.
