Hello Fellow Putzers, This should be interesting... I'm about to try my first REAL Post (with pictures). Yeah, Right. :-)
As most of your are aware I produce the Die Punched Window Mullions. If your an avid collector you know that some
of the nicer houses have their Window Mullions cover with a wrinkled fushia pink Foil. Well now you can refurbish your
special houses with accuracy. I now offer all the mullion styles in this fushia as well as pink, blue and purple. The last three
aren't actually used on the old houses but they sure would look nice on new structures.

Hi Pete! These new windows are quite delicious looking... and I am pretty sure I have a few buildings in my "needs work" container that can use these windows. Are they up on your site for sale yet?

Thanks Guys and Gals. I'm trying to keep things affordable. As per Papa Ted each piece is 50¢ each unless you order quantity. These foil window mullions
take two more steps than the regulars mullions. The foil material adds a little cost. I have to pay the my buddy that has the clam shell press to punch these
out. So I'm figuring 60¢ each, 55¢ for 10 or more? Please keep in mind that all money I make goes right back into the hobby.

I'll soon post some pictures of the Loofah replacement trees. I know it's easy for most of you to make your own but I've taken a good part of the summer
to master the dyes, shapes and sizes so they can represent all degrees of fading. It sure makes a difference when your refurbishing an old putz houses. I've
made them Blue Green (from the 1950s) to Tan/Brown (1920/30s).

Again, thank you for the encouragement, Pete

WOW! You have been a Busy little Beaver! I HAVE indeed seen a house some time ago with a BLUE foil window. So it is authentic.
