In the Spirit

A few of the merchants get into the spirit of the holidays during Franklin's Dickens Christmas by displaying vignettes in their front windows. The Mercantile added live women to their vignettes. Dressed in period costume, the two ladies were busy crafting. One did charcoal portraits while the other, shown above, knitted beaded purses. One of her creations is on the table behind her. The Patchwork Pantry had a harpist (left) entertain the crowds from the sidewalk in front of their store.

I hope the shoppers appreciate the effort put forth in these window displays.

I like the idea the merchants use to enhance the shopping experience. I also like your photos.

I spent all morning taking 600 photos of one hawk hunting. I will post one or two tomorrow.

Why don't we have more of this? The old lady looks so beautiful! That's a lovely photo.

I think it is so much fun to see recreations of the past. I heard there is a "living manger" scene performed in Julian, a little mountain town outside of San Diego.
