Magic windows make you stop!
I once read that your store window is your "silent sales person"!
A store window is your tool to draw people in.Without it being fabulous and eye catching, people will simply walk past and not stop!
I want people to stop,look and enjoy.
Coming up with something new each month - keeps me on my "creative toes"!
This is my Spring window which I loved.I used the same teal blue as my background wall in the shop.I thought painting up an image of a giant peacock would go perfectly together with the use of such a dramatic colour!
Threads of teal blue wool was used to add detail to the window.Wrapped around each yellow mossed branch the colours together looked fantastic.
I love these silk threads inside the chemist bottles.I collect these now and put them inside a jar next to my desk.The colours make me feel good.Maybe down the track I'll do something else with them?
