This year I've been given the opportunity to dress one of the windows at the North End Antique shop in Cape May NJ, which I have to say at first I didn't want the responsibility, but once I decided to go for it, I dove right in.
I made the huge Valentine heart myself with coffee filters.
I rimmed the edge with pink roses which I also made from filters and red food dye.
After forming roses out of about 4 filters, I painted the red food dye on just a little bit at a time so as not to entirely soak the paper. The above pic is in a dark room, true color is below taken in sunlight outside.
It is a little labor intensive but so worth it in the end.
I really enjoyed decorating this window. Gotta have a few cupids in there.
And a pretty vintage beaded bag.......Now wouldn't that be nice if hubby bought that home for you?
That's why I hung it on the cowboy coffee pot ...;) wink, wink;)
so it was perfect to hold a small bouquet!
Below is a shot from the inside of the window before
And after I got done with it.
The pics are somewhat dark because the sun was setting. But isn't it pretty how it makes the white milk glass glow? My favorite part of this window display has to be the enamel ware.
I love it's farmhouse quality. I am searching for an old chippy beat up table that I can set up the bucket and coffee pot on.
I also love how the whole window glows at night from the outside!
I had lots of fun doing this, and whatever you are doing this week I hope you are loving it!
Lots of Love,
