Twinkling Holiday Window

Trying to come up with interesting displays at our store, can sometimes be a challenge.  But sometimes we can actually create something quite unique to catch the customer's eye.  As you can imagine, being I love flea markets so well, that I would be very intrigued by old windows.  My neighbor, Big Jim, always had a fresh supply of great salvaged windows from old homes in the area.  So of course when I ran across this beauty, I had to make it mine!  So what to do with it????? 

So I decided that it needed some color!

I found some gorgeous fabric that seemed to be the right look for what I was trying to achieve.  Then stapled it to the back of the window frame.  Watch out, I'm dangerous with a staple gun!

Wanted something a little less traditional for the color....just a hint of holiday for the background....

Now for the real holiday stuff.......ribbon, lights...............action.....

And more lights......!!!!

Almost there.......just needs some more decorations on it...........

And here's the finished display...........ready for the customers now!!

Still decorating, and busy getting ready for our holiday open house.

If you live in the Atlanta area, I hope that you will stop by the 2nd weekend in November for it!
