January window at Rust Yarmouth




Ah, it was a bit sad to take down our xmas shop window display at Rust Yarmouth, but once we got stuck in, it didn't take long. For January is a bit of an in-between time on our calendar as it is too early for valentines and spring. Anyways, I always think of bulbs this time of the year, so we had the idea of having a few pots in the window, and that kind of grew until we added half the contents of our garden shed.
...also a few chandelier drops to represent rain, of course!


I got busy potting up loads of spring bulbs that we bought from our local b&q, and wrapped them in newspaper and moss with twine. Easy peasy! Maybe the muddy gloves was a step too far, but I like to try and tell a bit of a story in the shop window, like someone was planting out their bulbs and beans and dug up lots of jewellery...something like that!



same thing in the cabinets, but the lighting was a bit dodgy for taking photos...




Very atmospheric with the rain lashing against the windows!


I hope these are all going to flower ok, I got daffodils, snowdrops, crocus, hyacinth and little pansies.


Also, I made some new cards for the shop, I love these vintage seamen scraps, we already sold lots of cards on day one of opening 2016, so I best make more of these.


We bought a few flowers to brighten up the shop until the bulbs flower ; )



I am really enjoying the window decorating every season, in fact it was one of my top jobs on my list when I was a nipper. Thats the good thing about working for yourself, you can be all those things you always wanted to be, designer, photographer, visual merchandiser, (wrap and packer, data entry, sales assistant, factory worker, email responder, problem solver...blah blah blah)!! ; )
