Every couple of months, I am given free reign to create a window display at my neighbour, Edward Jones. This is a treat, as my shop lacks the beautiful accent lighting and space to create something monumental.
As the holiday season drew to a close, it was clear that it was time to revisit the window and create a fresh look for the winter months.
As much as I loved the colourful sewing room I created with my grandmother's antique sewing machine (still works!) and cushions, baskets, thread bobbin vases and rug from the shop, it was time to say 'good-bye'.
During the last week, our little village has been moving around its book collection. With the relocation of the Village Bookshop and the Library, I think I may have had books on the brain. Not to mention, this chilly winter weather makes me want to pick up a book from my growing personal library and snuggle up with a sari blanket around the fire place.
I created this little vista by borrowing a couple items: grandmother's antique chair and foot stool, a vintage trunk, luggage and vintage books and tea cups.
From the shop inventory I used a recycled outdoor Mad Mat, secret book boxes, a velvet pillow and a sari blanket.
By hand I created snow flakes using book pages (that appeared to come out of the secret box) and a faux cross stitch piece that hung on the wall.
I am having a lot of fun creating these window displays and I hope you enjoy them :)
