New Window Displays

I have shared the challenges of the shops front windows before. They are less than a foot deep and there are five of them. It was time to take down the sale signs but too early to put the fall colors in. The sun is strong on this side of the building in the afternoon, so I often block off the top fourth of the window with fabric this time of the year. I decided I needed a fresh summer theme. I hunted through my prop room and came up with this old Waverly print fabric. I pulled together a house cleaning story....clothes pins, ironing board, scrub brush, bucket and even a apron.
The flower boxes are doing well, thanks to Miracle Grow.
I'm happy to say the windows are done for the moment and I can move on to the next thing on my list. Now I just need to find my list....

A Mad Dash

Last week at auction I was headed for the truck and so were they.I love the orange theme going on here. So often customers will ask me where my inspiration comes from. EVERYWHERE!
