First up, amazing repros of wonderful vintage and qntique Halloween cut-outs---a true taste of nostalgia from BLUMCHEN HERE.
NEXT---Courtesy of Suzee Que, another outstanding ladies cabinet card from her collection, most likely pre-1920's and French; we love everything about this one--from the hand applied tinting to the lace details. And ALAS, we don't know the name of the beautiful woman shown.
She's followed by a photo--an oldie but goodie--a close-up of the "French" Christmas Tinsel tree castle putz--2014; the large cathedral is by Howard Lamey of littleglitterhouses.com; with internal LED lighting for all the windows.
The smaller castle is a reproduction of a 1920's-1930's putz by Karl Fey; the "Frenchified" porcelain figures are vintage made in Japan, while the Marie Antoinette ornaments are newly made using vintage components whenever possible.
The three foot plus tinsel tree--only partially shown--was purchased from Gumps.com.
This tree may make an appearance again this year but is in need of serious reinforcement at certain joints once it is festooned.
And finally one of our favorites from Howard---the Halloween Clock Tower Castle. Again, click on the photos and links.
