Bonus -- We Do!

Time to share our newest window for Collector's Antique Mall.  It's been done for a few weeks now, but sorry!  I've been too busy to post photos.  I'll make it up to you now...

We have this beautiful Alfred Angelo wedding gown from the late 1940s that we've been holding on to for a while now.  It's in nearly perfect condition -- so very lovely.  We decided that since June is the traditional month for weddings, we'd have one of our own!  We wanted to include our vintage tuxedo, too, but it just didn't work out.  This window is for the ladies!

After throwing around several ideas for the theme -- a bridal dressing room, the actual ceremony -- we finally decided on the concept of a bridal boutique, mainly because we liked the idea of a window within the window.  And...we also fell in love with the amazing -- and HUGE -- hall tree.  It needed a window to shine in.  Moving that thing was a beast, but well worth it for the impact it has! The "store window" was made from window molding with a clear vinyl "window" that we painted in reverse to give the effect of depth.

The sweet touches of pink throughout really finish it off, we think...

And it was fun to highlight some very specialized collections...

This window has gotten quite a lot of attention.  We're thrilled that everyone loves it -- because we do, too!
