First up, a wonderful old "London Christmas" photo from the New York Tribune--World War One. Click on the image. Idealized or not, it's still a worthy time capsule right down to the banana curls and bonnets.
Next up---THE BELL HOUSE---one of the fabulous entries in the MINI HOLIDAY HOUSE CONTEST over at PAPERGLITTERGLUE---see and read more at https://paperglitterglue.com/mini-holiday-house-contest/
P.S. Will definitely get more details from Howard on that bell house!
And finally, this year's French Christmas putz--featuring NOTRE MARIA, the Cathedral by Howard Lamey---and blue castle by Karl Fey---it's a very faithful repro of a 1930's putz house made in Japan---as well as numerous vintage and antique figures. Again, click on the photos and links.
