A trip to our daughter Lisa's home in New Jersey wouldn't be complete without a stop at Parcel, a precious little shop in the city of Montclair. One look at this Christmas window display... well, need I say more? A vintage television console housing a Santa. How sweet.
The sweetness spills over into the shop's interior.
My purchases this year included a 1930s Thanksgiving teacher's lesson card and a tiny plastic quail (to use in a November-themed shadow box?), plastic disks (for flowers or a miniature farm windmill?), a yard of blue mesh cloth (for window screen in a little cardboard house?)...
and a yard of textured paper (for the roof on a little cardboard house?).
