Frosted Window Panes

Two display windows from the store Granny Taught Us How.  It's a wonderful little boutique in the rolling countryside village of Violet Hill.
Across the road is Mrs. Mitchell's restaurant with a window display of colourful carollers.
I'm linking with Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.

  10. Hi Judith,
    One of the things I just LOVE about Christmas is window stopping and shopping! These are gorgeous.

  11. The shop reminds me of the shop illustrated in my copy of A Christmas Carol. Shops like that are so cute and so much nicer than the strip mall variety.

  12. The photos are as charming as the name of the village. I've not had the pleasure of visiting there.

  16. Hi Judith, I love those windows. Here in Vancouver we suddenly have all sorts of avant-garde type windows with turquoise and fuchsia. But I love to see the traditional ones. Also, Granny taught us how is the best name for a store ever! :)

  21. Both window scenes have a Victorian feel to me--all the more magical with some "frosting" or snow.

  23. These are so dreamy. Brings back memories of my childhood when we would go downtown to see the Christmas display windows.

  24. How wonderfully Christmasy! I don't think I've seen a cute window dressing for Christmas since we moved from NYC, and that was 13 years ago!
    thanks for sharing these holiday vignettes!

  25. Well my goodness, Judith. I still have a pillow I bought years ago at a now-gone antique store in Atlanta called ... Granny Taught Us How!

  26. Now that we have snow, it does seem a bit Christmas-y, doesn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Judith, your post piqued my curiosity with 'frosted window panes.' What beautiful windows! Very charming and Christmasy! I haven't seen anything like that here yet.

    Blessings,

  29. Hello,Judith!
    Theses are so lovely shop windows! It must be so cold outside but those rooms with beautiful displays are filled with happiness and intimacy. Thank you for your heartwarming post!
    I am hoping you are doing well. I am fine.

  32. That window sure draws you in. I am fascinated with windows like that on Christmas cards and such. They are beckoning. Love the Byers' Choice carolers too. Have been collecting them for years.
    Thanks for helping to get us in the mood...Ruthie
