Fifi Flowers: Christmas For Authors

Hello Everyone... I'm thrilled to be part of Booky Ramblings of a Neurotic Mom's Christmas For Authors special event!!!  Since it's Christmas I thought I would share one of my FAVOURITE things during the holiday season... Holiday Decorated Store Windows!!!  They actually inspired me to write my debut novel "A Window to Love."

Bundled up in jackets, scarves and mittens strolling along Fifth Avenue in New York City and seeing these displays can surely get anyone into the spirit, non?

Looking at all of the windows while I did research for my book, I was inspired to paint/create my own fictitious holiday window... IMAGINE this window...

I stopped at the window of the renowned Bergdorf Goodman department store. My eyes began dancing around at all the trésors on display within the window. Pale, icy blue draperies dropped in long glistening sheets down either side of this dazzling fantasy world. The first thing that captured my attention was the exquisite Christmas tree dripping with tear-shaped jewels in brilliant shades of blue. Twinkling white lights made all of the gems sparkle, tantalizing my senses. The crown jewel of the window was a magnifique blue crystal chandelier which hung in the center of the window. Light blue droplets cascaded to the floor giving the illusion of an icy cold rain shower. Surrounding the chandelier, fragrance bottles floated at various heights decorating the open space. Some of the bottles had fallen and broken open, spilling blue liquid into pools on the ground. Light dancing off the liquid gave the illusion of ripples on a pond of blue water ensconced by bejeweled blue sea creatures. As my eyes darted around enchanted by all the blue reflections, I was drawn to an enormous, plush, blue velvet chair. Leaning up against the front of the chair was a large framed photograph. My heart started racing. Tilting my head, I looked into the most gorgeous face I had ever laid my eyes upon. Dark, thick, tousled hair; perfect for running my fingers through. Full lips looked as if they are waiting for me to trace them with my tongue. His piercing blue eyes, made even more pronounced by all of the blue elements, made my body tingle. The taunt body was just as moan-producing. I got a hint of his wide shoulders and broad chest. Yes, I was undressing this beautiful man. I licked my lips, letting out a soft sigh as my eyes slipped halfway closed. - Excerpt from "A Window to Love"

Can you visualize it?  I think a window designer should contact me.... I would be OVER THE MOON to decorate a Holiday Window!!!  LOVE Windows!  They fascinate me (moi)!  Ooh la la... time to share a few more... these from one of my favourite cities in the world... PARIS!!!  Look at these FABuLOUS window displays...

I hope YOU get a chance to view some MAGNIFIQUE holiday windows this season!!!
