Window Dressing

One more posting and I am off to New York city with our daughter, Melanie, and our grandchildren Olivia and Camilo.

With only 5 days in the city and a very lengthy to do list, getting all our sightseeing in could be tricky.  We'll see how much we accomplish and will enjoy every minute trying!

With endless museums, shops, theatres, restaurants, galleries to see, it's sometimes easy to forget to look in the windows of the shops as we rush by.  More often than not, it's the windows themselves that are so fascinating and creatively dressed.  The first shop I rush to in New York is one of my favorites, Anthropologie.  I love to browse this store with it's goods from around the world, but it's their creative displays that leave me mesmerized.  I can't wait to see what they have this year and will bring photos back.

Late last summer when I was in London, we went to Harvey Nichols department store in Knightsbridge and took a few photos of the amazing displays in their windows and interiors.  Who would imagine a dress made of clothespins or a headdress made of swizzle sticks and cocktail umbrellas among other things?  Someone very, very creative!

Hope you enjoy!
