Carnival Window

This saturday 9th July is Melbourne Carnival . i love carnival day, it feels quintessentially english and creates a real buzz in the village. It's quite exciting seeing all of the floats and band march through melbourne, and feels very nostalgic! ( Im secretly jealous as i always wanted to be on a float when i was 'ickle)
This years Carnival theme is 'As Seen on Screen', where as shop owners we have the opportunity to enter our window in the window dressing competition. As this is our first carnival in our lovely new shop we decided to involve the local infant school to help us decide what 'screen' inspiration our window should be. Over 60 children, aged 6 and 7 designed a window for us, and we picked 'Olivias' - The Secret Garden as the winner of our window.
We have displayed her original design in our window, along with our interpretation of it.
Fingers crossed we win the competition !, and thankyou to all of the little ones who helped us with their drawings x

Claim to fame for olivia - her name on our window !...
