atlanta gift show, part two

i hope you guys don't mind my geeking out and sharing photos of the window displays from the atlanta show. they're not the best photos (window glares everywhere), but you'll get the idea. i fell in love with how the set designers displayed my work - they captured my aesthetic/whimsy perfectly and i couldn't have been happier.

they even used the same white chair i use in my studio. loved all the details, like the hat boxes and birdie cage on top. not sure if you can see it, but there's even a vintage paper cutter on the desk! loooovvveee the ribbon across the top - i'll share close-ups of that ribbon soon. and i just love how they collected all the bits and pieces of the various new products and grouped them together. totally digging the large vintage red trunk on the left.

here's a closer look at the inside of the trunk. i might use this idea next year for christmas - putting a tree inside a trunk (tree trunk :)

here's a shot taken behind the window. you can see a bit more of the details like the old fan and sneak peeks of the new product. i just love that old metal green desk/shelf thingamajig. love it.

this is another display over on the holiday side of the showrooms. it's pretty whimsical which makes my heart happy. totally digging how they decorated the dress form with a garland tutu and riboon - another idea i might have to do next christmas in my home! you can't see if very well in this photo, but to the left is a stack of vintage suitcases holding many of the large decorative art girlies (photos of those soon, too).

there you have it - crazy, eh? i'm pinching myself, and trying hard to capture all of it. this feels like a once in a lifetime moment and i want to make sure i don't miss a thing. huge, huge gratitude all around.

in other news, i'm working hard over here, trying to catch up from being gone for 10 days while not over doing it. i also received 17 (!) large boxes of product that i'm working on getting uploaded to the shop - stay tuned!
