    Etsy Find: Vintage Putz Houses

    If you’ve never heard of a Putz House, you are not alone. I had no clue they existed until I picked up this month’s issue of Martha Stewart Living and read her cover wreath how-to. Putz Houses are miniature houses – usually made from cardboard – used to set up a Christmas Village. I was instantly enamored. Lucky for me, I found a fairly large selection of the vintage houses on Etsy. Above, vintage white mica church, $10.95. Below, vintage brick house, $12.

    Of course, you can also make your own versions. Martha has some patterns here. And kits are available for around $10 per building.

    Etsy Find: I Saw the Sign

    I’ve always thought a subtle neon sign can add a pop of modern to more traditional decor. I’ve just never thought I’d find a neon sign that was even remotely affordable. That was until I ran across Marcus Conrad Poston’s Etsy shop. His signs aren’t exactly cheap, but they come in under $1000 each. Above, super awesome J’adore neon sign,¬†$650. Poston also does custom jobs. Via PoppyTalk.
