90 years ago this fall this was in someone's mailbox

Picked up a ninety year fall winter catalogue today. Almost 600 pages of time travel goodness. The wish books they used to be called. Perhaps they still are.

Happy Birthday Lilly

So very confused, half the blogosphere is wishing Lilly a big old Happy Birthday yesterday but wiki says her B-day is November 10.  Never mind. We thrifted this one on her maybe birthday so file under possible birthday gift to me.

This Lilly will be coming to the CAFTCAD show October 23, 2010. Just in time for, uh, Florida in winter. That's it. Florida in winter.
