I don't think my last post went through, so let me try again:

I collect all kinds of vintage Christmas items, including cardboard houses of course! I don't really have any very nice ones except for one really large "mansion" that I suspect is actually from the 1950s, after the heyday. Once I figure out how, I'll post some photos of it.

Nice to "meet" you all!

Hillary. I think you are right, I don't think people saw your initial message. Welcome to the forum. Please post photos. You know we love photos here even if you don't consider them nice ones - we do. AND we can use them for inspiration for making more houses. We also appreciate that you have saved the little houses.
