Show and Tell Monday ...
The Nosey Goose was dressed for the holidays this weekend ... we had our annual holiday open house Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Things have been very slow at the shop but I am happy to report that we had a busy and very fun start to the holiday season. We had our doubts with the way the economy has been and the rainy weather we had but I am thrilled to say our event was a success. I took some photos (I am a terrible photographer) to give you an idea of what our shop is like at this time of year.

Turquoise is the "in" color for the holidays this year. I love this look!

This is our white room

This is a little table display of Roxie's lights

This is a photo of the entrance to the shop. It is in an historic house so the stairs greet you at the front door.

This is our front bay window

Roxie's light strand is on the mantel

Hi jennifer,
Everything is just beautiful. I would be lost in your shop. No one would find me for a few days. But I would find the cash register. Truly a lovely shop.

Wow Jennifer, what an extraordinary shop!! I sure wish I lived close enough to come and visit. I also love the turquoise and did a display last year all in silver and turquoise that won the contest at my husband's school! Love every room of your fabulous shop!

I LOVE how the shop is decorated!!! Can you come decorate my house? Please!
I'm curious, do those stairs go anywhere?

Roxie said...

Your store is amazing Jennifer! My gosh, it would be dreamy to come shop there. Maybe you can setup a small tree at your turquoise display and wrap a strand of the cotton candy Candylights around it. Ooh la la!
Everything looks FAB!!
