    Bay Window, Picture Window Decor

    Does anyone decorate a bay window or large picture window for Christmas? Tell us about it and post a pic if you have one.

    I've decorated ours in different ways. This year it will have Holy Family figures (18.5 inches tall). I haven't decided on the type of garland to use.

    I saw a different Jim Shore nativity set at the Christmas attic in old town Alexandria, and I thought of you! I don't know if it's new this year or not, but thought I'd mention it. I know how you like those pieces. I do too, but my wallet not so much.

    Let's not talk about the wallet! LOL. I apologized to my husband for spending so much money.

    Just the mention of old town Alexandria brought on a wave of nostalgia. I'll post my Jim Shore Nativity and other Holy Family figures when I can get the cut and paste to work.

    I love Old Town. If I could live anywhere in the DC area it would be there. Unless I hit the lottery, buying a place there isn't just tough on the wallet, it's impossible. I'll have to just stick with occasionally eating,shopping and good old walking around down there.
    I hope your husband was understanding.

    I know what you mean about $$$ Old Town.

    And after all these years of marriage, I think my husband has decided to let me dig my own grave!

    haha, well, I don't really decorate the windows, per se. I do wrap garland, (that I also wrapped mini multi-colored lights around) across the curtain rods on two windows and the ends hang down a little more than half way on each side of the windows, but the windows themselves I have not decorated. years ago, someone had given me an old single electric candle that I put in one window, but it died after some years and I never replaced it.

    My parents center their tree in the front window.
    One really fun thing I saw a couple of years ago in California was a house with a leg lamp like in A Christmas Story. I don't know who the people were who owned the house, but we got a good chuckle.
