Today was the day that the visions which danced in our heads over the past few months come to reality. Our collection of handmade seaside themed ornaments include glittered shells, altered art mermaids, jellyfish urchins, capiz shell crowns and Hotel Del ornaments...all a labor of love.
Just days before twirling the window, we were still undecided on the floor covering, but that little light bulb went off in my head as I was laying in bed one night.. line the windows with embellished sea fans, lighted sea urchins, and waves of champagne colored tulle to simulate the ocean floor. We LOVE it!
A vintage aqua tulle prom dress made the perfect tree skirt.
A beautiful reflection of lights played off the glass and mirror.
After an 8 hour day, the small window is nearly complete. We have one more little addition to the window planned for tomorrow, which I can't wait to see how it turns out! Next we will begin the task of setting up the vintage holiday decorations..one of my favorite displays. We should be completely set up by Saturday afternoon. Follow along as I share the remaining holiday vignettes with you here on the blog!

Back by popular demand...our Hotel Del ornament. We have these with a snow scene or sand and shells. Exclusively ours, designed and created by Jane.
A special thank you goes out to Christine for making us the Christmas By The Sea window banner. We adore it AND you...thank you so much!
