I found “Merry Christmas, Mr. Baxter” in a used bookstore and bought it primarily because of the cover art. I like to read one Christmas themed book each year during the season. I’m a sap, I can’t help it. I try not to get too engorged on Christmas before Thanksgiving, but I felt I’d review it now since we’re only days away from the start of the season.

This is another papercraft set from Mistletoegreetings.com which is going bye bye. These are miniature Christmas Tree Light boxes from old five and dime stores like Woolworth’s, McCrory’s and Kresge’s. I like vintage packaging, especially stuff from the holidays. I copied the packaging pretty closely from the original designs, so these are authentic, albeit in miniature. Add them to Christmas dioramas and dollhouses, print and fold a bunch of them and fill a bowl as a table centerpiece, string them up like popcorn for a garland, tie them to a bow, etc. I just design them. You get to choose the usage.
Yesterday I visited Downtown Disney and took some pictures the flying contraptions in World of Disney. These are a bunch of these hanging in the main hall. Click a picture to make larger.
