E-cards from Jacquie Lawson. Animated Holiday Greetings, Musical Cards and more E-cards featuring Chudleigh.
Back in the year 2000, Jacquie Lawson, an English artist living in the picturesque village of Lurgashall in Southern England, created an animated Christmas card featuring her dog and cats, and her 15th-century cottage, and sent it to a few friends for their amusement. Those friends sent the e-card to others, and within weeks Jacquie was inundated with requests from all over the world to design more e-cards. In February 2002 she teamed up with a few friends and family members to create Over the years the collection has grown to a current total of 282 e-cards, each one showing a degree of artistry and attention to detail rarely seen in the medium of e-cards. Even the music is composed and arranged specially for each card!

Hanukkah - Holidays The events that inspired the Hanukkah holiday took place during a particularly turbulent phase of Jewish history. Around 200 B.C., Judea—also known as the Land of Israel—came under the control of Antiochus III, the Seleucid king of Syria, who allowed the Jews who lived there to continue practicing their religion. His son, Antiochus IV Epiphanes, proved less benevolent: Ancient sources recount that he outlawed the Jewish religion and ordered the Jews to worship Greek gods. In 168 B.C., his soldiers descended upon Jerusalem, massacring thousands of people and desecrating the city’s holy Second Temple by erecting an altar to Zeus and sacrificing pigs within its sacred walls.

PM&M page [USA / New York / New York (04)] Seeing the vast number of items with Arnart marks and stickers, many people incorrectly believe that this company was a manufacturer. But they merely imported customized products, mainly via their US office located at 212 5th Avenue. An interesting fact in this context is that even after the 'Arnart 5th Ave.' mark had been introduced in 1957, Arnart actually continued to use the 'Arnart Creations Japan' stickers. During the mid-50's the company decided to present an own series of figurines; this decision was based on the popularity of the Hummel figurines produced by the German Goebel company. Arnart therefore employed the US designer Erich Stauffer and many urban legends rank around both the person as well as his items.
