Have I told you how much I enjoy doing a window? I moved into The Hall Tree on the Centerville square in August and I convinced the owner, Emily, to let me have one of her windows. (She has 4!!) I thought that being a teacher, three little ones at home, etc... that it might be a little much to do it by myself. I asked the other vendor there if she would alternate with me. She said yes!!
For my first window I wanted to make sure that people knew I had moved in, so I wanted to include my name. I have a bunch of projector screens from an auction, so I used one to make a sign.
Then I just added some junk until I was happy. Here is the September window. My very first.
Then, it was Pood's Picks turn. I don't have a picture to show you, but it is on Facebook! My page-Junk Parlor and hers-Pood's Picks.
November, my turn. I had picked a load of mannequins and wanted to use one. The Hall Tree is a woman's clothing boutique so I thought it'd be fun to dress her up. I LOVE music sheets. I hand stitched music sheets to a hoop skirt and added some vintage jewelry. I also had scored a ton of frames and I wanted to put her front and center; the frame accomplished this. I added in a little more music sheets and tried to balance out the display with some junk.
December - Pood's Picks I had this vintage Santa from my grandma, that wasn't for sale, but I thought it'd look great in our Christmas window. Susanne had already planned on putting in a mantel and stockings and so it was a perfect opportunity to use Santa.
January - The Junk Parlor I really couldn't decide what I wanted to do. I have these busts I wanted to use, but at the same time I didn't know how they would look on a white background. (I just had a great idea on how to use them in my March window-now I just have to remember!!) Anyway I had just brought in a ton of suitcases from the barn to clean, price, and take to the store. I decided to incorporate them and traveling. I had this Iowa map and I thought it would be fun to do a chalkboard quote. I searched awhile on the Internet for a good one. There were lots, but this one I liked the best. "Go on adventures with me."
I can't wait to do more!!!!
