Nestled in the tiny village of Emmaus, Pennsylvania is a charming store called Cottage. The owners of this shopping treasure, Emma and Heidi, asked if I would design their 2011 holiday windows. You see, there was a local window decorating contest and the theme was, as you guessed, The Night Before Christmas. How could I resist the challenge! The winner receives free ad space in a local publication and a plaque.
Armed with my sketch pad, white paint, glue, props, eco friendly artificial snow, and tons of glitter I set my mind to the task hand. My kitchen served as the workshop for the creation and well … my house now looks like Katy Perry spent the night.
Last night at 5:00 pm sharp in the center square of Emmaus, with the village Christmas tree towering over us, the winner was announced. COTTAGE WON! Hey, it’s a small victory but appreciated nonetheless.
Here are a few pictures of the windows. Enjoy, Happy Holidays and don’t forget to do your holiday shopping at Cottage!
PS: On Saturday December 10th from 10 AM to 12 Noon, I will hold my very first trunk show at Cottage featuring my holiday collection of home decor and gifts. Please stop by!
