Pardon Me While I Brag


Anyone visiting New York City this Christmas Season? Wish that I were for two reasons: 1. my niece lives there 2. I could see her Saks Fifth Avenue window.

A week ago, Saks Fifth Avenue unveiled their 2015 Christmas Season Display windows. My niece Kea created the middle window, which is a representation of The Great Wall of China. 


The Great Wall of China is on the left. I should also add that all the clouds in every window were created by Kea (sounds like key). 

If you'd like to read more, this is an informative article even if you only look at the photo. 


Thanks for allowing me to crow a bit this morning. =D

  1. Wow...just wow! I can only imagine the time and work involved to create such things as this. I have never been to NYC but would love to go just one time in my life. You have every reason to sing your niece's praises so crow away!! :)

  2. Just fabulous Vee! Your niece certainly must have worked hard to recreate this amazing display. The NYC shop windows are always worth a trip to the city before Christmas - we last did it a few years back and it actually started snowing when we arrived Sat. afternoon, continued through the night so we awoke to a fantastic Sunday morning - luckily we had our boots with us!

  7. How awesome and how artistic! I love seeing the windows in the city. Buttercup is on my blog list and she has been showing some of the windows she sees. I wonder if she's seen this one! Love your banner with the sheep and big Teddy bear! Hugs!

  9. How exciting for Kea! I was in NYC in November 2012 and loved all the decorations, lights and store window displays. Friends of ours left yesterday on a bus tour to NYC and will enjoy seeing it all. Keep on bragging, proud Auntie. :)

  14. Well you brag all you want my friend. Bragging rights are yours! I would brag too! Love the window displays. I have never been to NYC. I keep saying I am going one day before I get too old to keep up the pace! Happy Wednesday Vee. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  15. How exciting!! I have been watching the show "Selfridges" on Netflix...highly recommend it. It is about a US businessman Harry Selfridge who opened a department store in the early 1900's in London. Of course, window dressing was a huge thing to bring all the customers in to shop. I would love to go to NYC sometime as well!! Take care

    1. The choir was fabulous! They walked out from the store singing "O Come All Ye Faithful." It was spine-tingling!

  46. Wow. I can't even comprehend how someone would go about designing something like this. Will have to read the article. I did have relatives that just returned from NYC and actually posted a brief video of this display in action on their facebook page thanks for sharing. You should definitely crow about something like that.

  47. Wow! I would brag too, what a talented girl :>) The one and only reason I would like to go to NYC would be to see the Christmas windows. I'm just a small town girl, but the windows must be something spectacular! I'm going to read the article now.
