A MARSHMALLOW WORLD









"It's a marshmallow world in the winter, when the snow comes to cover the ground."




Marshmallow Dress


Recently I made a trip to Atlanta where after Christmas sales run well into January. One adorable visual art display window was the idea behind this post.  

It is snowing today, yes snowing! You heard right, where in the south we rarely get the white stuff we are getting a snow shower with a dusting covering the ground. The forecast is for one to three inches. I get almost giddy with excitement! So I think a cold weather post is in order. 

So come along and enjoy a little shopping at the January sales and see if you can guess what I buy!


My Snow Scenes










Let's Shop

Broken Pottery Shop Display












Tablescapes















Christmas Sale

















MacKenzie Childs















After a long cold day of shopping a cup of hot cocoa hits the spot.




"It's a whipped cream day. " A delicious end to a fun day. Now have you guessed what I bought?



Christmas decorations marked seventy-five percent off! Dolls to adorn packages next year and  feathered birds for my white flocked tree.

  39. That china dress--I am pinning that! I've done broken-pottery projects in the past, and that must have taken a ton of time and china both to accomplish, but it's gorgeous! I loved this post--what an amazing day of shopping and sight-seeing!

  40. Bonjour Emily!!!!!!

    That marshmallow dress caught my eye instantly! If you get a chance, come back to my blog and scroll down and look for a post called, "A Place Behind The Sun" and see the paper wedding dress I made. It is now in a shop window in town!

    Thank you so much my dear for visiting me and I hope to see you in May for our Paris Party?

    LOVELY PHOTOS! Anita

  49. Talk about merchandising!!!!! The imagination and creativity was just running rampant!!! That plate dress....oh, my gosh!!! And seriously...who on earth thought up those blowing marshmallow dresses??!?!?!! I want some of what THEY'RE having! :-) :-) :-) I really like that French hen with the tray on his back, too. Really cool! I don't know how you left there without backing an 18-wheeler up and saying, "Charge it!" Have a great weekend!

  50. I can't get enough of the marshmallow and broken glass dresses! I would take the latter in a New York minute. That kind of creativity just blows me away, and I'm so glad you shared it.

  51. Wow! Awesome displays - just took my breath away - we're just a couple hours away from Atlanta and no snow in site! We're expecting temps in the 70's and a severe thunderstorm! Spring flowers are blooming! I do appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday - I will be featuring your post in this week's Home and Garden Thursday,

  52. I am BLOWN away by those dresses. As if the marshmallow one wasn't enough, that GORGEOUS broken pottery dress is SURREAL. Awh, Anita beat me to it! ;) The first thought that ran through my mind was running to get her to see these, but I see she's already been here. I'm sure she could pull these off with her eyes closed. These are amazing, my friend, and the music is PERFECT as usual. I have removed the music from my page going in a tad of a different direction this year (for now), but you know where my heart is, besides, I'll always have your page. ;) Means I'll be stalking you more than usual.
    I've added your name to the Somewhere in Time tag giveaway. Thx for playing along. :)
    XOXO's,

  56. Hi Emily! I tried to click over to your blog from "A Stroll Thru Life" party but the link didn't work. BUT I got to see this fabulous post of yours that I missed back in January! Love the creativity of the marshmallows in chicken wire and the fabulous-ness of the broken china "dress" . Your after-Christmas bargains will be fun to pull out next holiday season.
