Christmas Windows in Paris
One thing I can always count on this time of year...festive, creative, breathtaking store window displays all dressed up for Christmas here in the French capital. The girls didn't find much in the way of clothing they liked, but they sure enjoyed looking at the Christmas decorations all over Paris.
As usual, dolls jovial figurines play a major part in many of these displays. They dance, they play, and sometimes they help Santa prepare his haul. We also noticed another trend: tiny scale models of scenery and buildings cut from white cardboard. They were in the displays at Galeries Lafayettes, one of the city's iconic department stores. But they were also in the windows of other types of boutiques as well.
The dolls' photos need no words. So I'm simply putting them up for your enjoyment.

But Christmas is also about color....

The great thing is how even the local merchants all get into the Christmas spirit. Here's the one in my neighborhood.

With that, we're all on a plane headed back to the US for the holidays. We didn't see clothes we liked this time around. But we did see a few details, and found some interesting fabric remnants. And it's time to start dressing our rather large community of dolls for Christmas. We'll have another post up shortly.
