This fall I was having a blast cooking up ideas of a wintery window for a Christmas Open House. I also did some chalk work for it. The persnickety things about window displays is that I find them so difficult to photograph; usually night seems to work the best and when it is 30-40 minutes away it is rarely convenient to make that happen. But with the pressure of knowing that we’ll be changing the window again soon I knew I had to get it done, so wa-la!
We discussed making the animals ourselves, but then I discovered Elizabeth’s work and there was really no reason to even try (isn’t her work amazing?). A couple emails and weeks later a box full of wonderful creatures showed up. We impatiently awaited November’s arrival, itching to create the scene we had been talking about for months. As the night of setting up progressed we kept ooo-ing, ahh-ing, and dashing outside to check how it looked. It was a hit; we loved it, our customers loved it, and a few weeks later our little window even won us an award!
