Christmas Windows

Many years ago I spent a romantic Christmas in Niagara-on-the-Lake in Ontario. The historic town is full of heritage buildings, all classically decorated for the holidays.

Star of Wonder

Decorations extended to the windows, many of which bore lighted candles at night. Driving through the streets of the town at night it was easy to forget you were in a motor vehicle and instead believe you were in a horse-drawn carriage in a pre-electric time.

 Christmas Time

Across the western world we decorate porches and decks, staircases, trees, mantles and tables… and inspired by the windows in Leighton House, the bed and breakfast where I stayed, I have begun decorating windows. Not like the big shop windows, but quaint, rustic decorations.

  1. What a lovely sentiment, that you remember those Christmas windows from years ago! Sounds like it really was a wonderful time! Love the ice skates (I use them too, for decorating) and the clock face with the vintage Santa Claus! xo Kathleen Charm Bracelet Diva {At Home}
