Do you know Jan...I really enjoyed that walk around your village shops. Isn't it wonderful that they all join in the festive spirit. Just magical!

When i was a girl my mum used to take us round to the little village next to ours, it had a butchers, bakers, flower shop, a bank, and they used to put tiny christmas trees on top of the doorways and have 1 large one in the street, the florist always dressed their window according to the season, now sadly its all take aways and empty units, its a shame, thats all you need, some good old fasioned christmas displays, not a laser light show with fluff and sparkles all over!! take care xx

Thank you for sharing your shop windows. How pleasant it must be to browse there. I noticed the little mice in one picture and they looked so real. It's so nice they all go together with a theme. 'On Ya'-ma

Loved them all, Jan, especially the makeover at the accountants. Do you think they worked out that it didn't `attract' VAT?

Did you know that in the original french story the slipper was fur but it got lost in translation to glass...I really can't imagine a fur slipper at all...The windows are fab :o) Hope your christmas pressie making is coming on good xxx

Oh, how pretty! If we had such beautifully decorated shop windows, I would certainly be in the Christmas spirit. There is a small town about an hour north of here that does have beautiful shops and windows. It's been a few years since I've been there. Not many towns in the states left that are like that. Thanks for sharing, Jan...lovely! xx

Marie said...

How wonderful that all your shops got together and did this! I really enjoyed seeing the pictures and reading about them. Well done Jan! Thanks so much for sharing with us!
