Open House part II

As promised, more of our Open House Photos...

Vintage swans in one of our front windows

Dress form angel in front window
(sorry for the not so great pic, my windows are really hard to photograph !)

Altered books, great little works of art in themselves!

I happened to mention to a friend that I was looking for a dress form to use for a display in our front window. I had been looking for one for sometime without any luck.
I have a couple that I use in the store for jewelry, but I needed a spare for the window.
Patti gladly offered to loan her "girl" for my display
( with promises not to sell "her" of course)
Soooo, with the addition of sheet music wings and paper wreath...viola !! An angel was born....
Special thanks to my friend Patti...she has "saved " me more than once and she is one very talented lady. Check out her blog :
Have a great week !!

Open House Photos

The doors flew open Saturday morning....Lots of oohs and aahs,

A lot of very long days and nights....

preparing for our open house...

all the hard work has paid off...

To see the smiles of delight on our
customers faces makes it all worth it....

Great black china cabinet with curved glass doors

Lots of bling !!

Sweet silver tea pot lamp with embellished shade

One of our front window displays...Love these vintage swan decoys !!

Carved angel wings..great architectural piece!

More of that great cabinet !!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart
to all those who came out and made our open house a huge success.

I still have a few more pictures to go through and I will post them in the next few days.
Hugs to all you!!
