This week we have been looking for ideas for our Christmas Window. Don't worry, we won't follow John Lewis, and put Christmas decorations up the same week as Halloween!
The first Week of December is early enough for us, just in time for the Marlow Christmas Late Night Shopping Event.
This year we have decided to design the window around some beautiful Art Deco Ski Posters we have. David first saw these posters on our holiday in Switzerland and managed to source them when we returned home.
On the way to look for a bookcase for our daughter Imogen we were discussing where we might find an old sledge and some wooden skis. We drove to a new Antiques Barn at Emmets Farm in Little Marlow where Mandy, our Sunday Manager, had suggested we look for a bookcase. We couldn't believe our luck when we walked in and saw an old wooden sledge being used as a prop for Christmas decorations.
The Barn is a treasure trove of Shabby Chic Antiques that David and I love and after a chat with the Owner The Home Barn has kindly agreed to supply us with props for our Turners window and in return, we will publicise The Home Barn. We are really excited about this venture and hope that with the help of Pat, our Window Dresser, this year's window will be the best yet.
