New Window Display

I've been hard at work this week putting together a new window display for the shop.
Because it is so very cold here in Melbourne-town, I went for a winter wonderland theme with icy blues and whites as the main colours. I thought this would also be a nice backdrop for the brightly coloured handmade toys that love being shown-off in the window!

I stenciled some white snowflakes on the window, and hung strands of blue and white pom-poms.

I made some new display boxes out of old dresser drawers. I spray-painted them white and glued some lovely vintage wallpaper in the back.

these little guys love hiding in their new boxes :)

With all the blue and white used, I thought some yellow flowers would be just the ticket to brighten things up. I made these pom-pom flowers on wire and put them in vintage glass bottles (these are really cute and easy to make, but if anyone wants a tutorial I can put one up)

So thats the window display, I hope you like it as much as I do.
If you're in the area come by and have a look....and don't forget to pop in and say hello :)

Wow, if that doesn't bring people in I don't know what will!
That looks incredible.
I wish I had such a creative flare.
