Day 345 – Inspiration from Christmas retail windows and decorations.

Sunday 11th December 2011.

Yesterday we managed to locate the Christmas tree (hidden in a box last year in the deepest darkest corner of the house!), today it was time to discover the hiding place of the Christmas decorations.  As we have a number of boxes, built up over the years, in different colours, from different houses, and originating from different countries, it’s always fun to play pot luck and opt for a mix of whatever you lay your hands on first. This time they were hidden in the garage, so it was a case of first located was what you get.  Currently there are 2 big packing boxes, and 3 small Flamant boxes (my most favourite shop for this type of stuff and I think the result of a stop in their outlet store 2 years ago) sitting in the corner of the dining room.  This is because I have changed priorities and moved onto Christmas card writing (with a very pressing deadline) and can’t quite get the enthusiasm together to start sorting and selecting.

So tonight, I am posting some Christmas windows from Istanbul to jolt me back into the creative spirit. I live in hope to show you the result later in the week!

I’m thinking big…… snowmen, light and sparkle!!

more impressive than a garland on your front door!
