This past Monday was the set-up
day for the annual Antique Christmas display
at the Taft Museum.
This year, eleven collectors
loaned parts of their collections for the display.
I contributed two displays this year,
a small tree with American made
ornaments from World War Two as well
as an English dollhouse and early spun cotton ornaments.
Here's a sneak peek at a few of the displays,
I had to leave early so I was unable
to get photos of everything that day.
