New York Style Window Displays ~ Bergdorf Goodman (Carnival of the Animals)

The neon lights on Broadway are bright...but, nothing quite compares to the Christmas Windows up and down 5th Avenue in New York. We hope you will enjoy this visual banquet of the Bergdorf Goodman windows. It is astounding!!! Even the skyscraper reflections have ensured themselves a permanet place in the picture.

Can you image the preparation for these displays and some of the props!

Merry Christmas from our home to yours....

This is one of my favorite Christmas Tree Photos ~ found tumblr

It will be a full house at the Hanning's Home! Soon it will be filled with the sound of Christmas Music, laughter and lots of little voices, of course this year we will have 8 grandchildren coming for Christmas Eve and spending the night, and my sister's family of five will be joining us for our traditional Italian dinner, Spaghetti and Meatballs and Spaghetti and Bacala` (Cod fish) and it's soooo delicious! It's fair to say there will be chaoz and arguing (from the little people) and through it all, we will hear happiness and love.

I'm looking forward to sleeping bags and pillows spread all over the floor and an assortment of toys, remote control and games, and I know a few will be playing princess dress up. My children will be home, along with their husbands and children. My heart is full and Christmas is almost here!

This Holiday Season from our Home to Yours, We Wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

~ See you in 2012 ~

Thank you for visting us and we apprecitate each and everyone of you!!!

Two Women Country Christmas ~ 2011

Cel & I love Christmas....we love the season's magic spell that takes hold of us! We surely look forward every year to Diana and Fielding's Country Christmas Show! It's a wonderful beginning for our Christmas holiday!All the vendors did such an amazing job decorating for this event, we loved walking through the show looking at all the different ways our talented friends decorated,from the simple small Christmas decorations, dusting of glitter, to all-out electrified extravanganzaz.We enjoyed every minute, and came home with so much inspiration for our homes.
We are also so happy that so many of you came to visit us. It was fun to watch the shoppers so jubilant over their purchases. We have to say we saw so many of you having fun shopping! We enjoyed seeing each and everyone of you, and we TRULY enjoyed hearing all your Christmas memories and stories. We never get tired of hearing about your mother's and grandmother's belongings, and the meaning these objects have to you.

Merry Christmas to all!!

Glad & Cel

Thank you to Katelyn Thompson Foutch for the Lovely photos, without her we would have had none to share!!

SWEET, function and color!!!

Sneak peeks...before the grand opening!!!

We are thrilled at the outcome of the design for SWEET frostings, one of the main design elements we used was beautiful floral wallpaper. Cel and I and our clients are at one with the happy colors of pinks, greens,and blues in the floral wallpaper, and loving the coral bathroom wall color. We used a variation of the same colors on the vintage furniture pieces and colored accent tiles on the counter and back splash.

Rather than high-end furniture, we searched out vintage furniture, that added character and personality to the space.

We are hoping when guests visit the store, there will surprise and delight. This bakery has been so much fun to dress up,even the chairs are skirted to look like little girl's dresses. The space is cozy with out being cluttered; and is visually charming and comfortable.

We wanted to create a space that reflected our clients Judy and Sally, which we feel we have accomplished a bakery design that expresses their joy of living.

Please put this bakery on your list of MUST SEE and of course MUST EATS!!!

See You All Soon!

Glad & Cel
