I’m so excited about going to see the department store windows this year. It’s something I always enjoy doing, but I’m extra enthused this season after watching a special on HGTV today. It was all about the behind-the-scenes planning of the windows.

How fabulous would it be to conceive of those windows a year in advance and then watch them come to fruition? What a cool job. I’m really looking forward to seeing Saks. The designer talked about themes for each window being things like wisdom, beauty, friendship, harmony, etc. Love that.

One I won’t be seeing in person is the flagship Niemann Marcus store in Dallas, but it really came to life on TV. They did an underwater Christmas tree theme, complete with coral and fish and things painstakingly made out of colored glass.

I’m so jazzed by others’ creativity and how it manifests. So jazzed.
