Window Beginnings

I cannot believe it is Thursday already.
Also cannot believe it is week two
of my vacation to work our new store.

Also forgot Valentine's Day is tomorrow.

Still spending long hours
getting the store ready.

Today I want to show you our first
window display.
I had created fabric peeps bunnies,
so I wanted to feature more peeps in my display.
 I made these out of heavy construction paper.

I think it turned out rather well.

Using more cardstock in Spring colors,
I created the paper garland.
Lots of cutting and gluing.

This display is facing in because
Bob still has a bench outside the window
blocking the view, so until he moves it...
it will have to be.
He was going to move it yesterday
before the snow came in,
but folks were sitting on it every time
he decided to move it.

Fabric carrots for sale along with 
handpainted scrabble tiles which spell HOP.

I so love these wood Cottontail Gardens boxes.
Notice the blue price tags.
Even though we have a price gun,
I still wanted 
the look of an old time shop,
so I will hand write all of our price tags
for everything except the food.

Off to to the store again.
Candles and room spray fresheners 
are due to come in today.

Still need to order the potpourri,
 honey, salsa and tea,

Our greeting cards came in Tuesday,
along with our coffee, candied almonds
and more home decor.

So much to inventory...
however starting to look like a store.

More to come......
I hope you continue to follow us on our
new journey.

Window Beginning Blessings To All!
