OH!
Photos from the early 20th century (among other things)! What a find! Bookmarked!

I found his site a few months back and have emailed him a few times about how he deals with post Christmas blahs. Love that excerpt about the " Magic Window" that says it all for me ! I ll go through my emails and post his advice.

There is but a very brief window in early childhood for us all, a period of time that lasts from birth until we are cast from the nest and into school. A time when all about the world is new and good. A time when we are open. A time when we take things in so deeply that they will form us ever after. So we imprint upon the Christmas of that time, and what that was is what it will be for us always. That is what collecting is about. The power that an object unseen in decades can have to transport us in mind and spirit back to a specific period or moment of our lives - to unlock long-closed doors in the mansion of our memory - is the true value that it has. We can hold such an object in our hands and know those times were real and welcome back whole parts of who we were into who we are - and let the inner child in each of us out once again to play - to live as part of us and and help us see again through our own "Magic Window."
-T.H. Althof
