windows of 2014

In just a few short hours we will be celebrating the arrival of 2015. It sounds completely surreal: 2015!  We certainly live in the future.  The age of hashtags, selfies and admittedly more social media acronyms than I can keep up with.  True confession, I thought #MCM stood for mid-century modern.  Who knew man crush Monday was a thing?

I am happy to celebrate the past everyday surrounded by pretty and practical vintage things.  I thought that it would be fun to close out 2014 with some of my favorite displays from our window at The West End Garage.

We took up residence in this space in March and started off with an Easter themed window.

Spring came with a walk in the garden.

Summer arrived along with our busy season and the omission of a few fun windows.  I have resolved to take more photos with an actual camera in 2015 to capture all of our displays!

Fast forward to fall…my favorite season and perhaps my favorite window of the year.

We closed out the year with the magical Victorian dollhouse. A mini version of Christmas in Cape May when historical homes are decked out from eaves to gingerbread trim.

Fun fact:  The West End Garage is a very old building that was originally a Ford Model T dealer.  I believe this front space was the showroom hence the beautiful tin walls and ceilings that are still in tact.  Then it became an auto shop called, none other than, The West End Garage.  We’re so lucky to be part of such a unique space.  If you haven’t been in before, you have to put it on your list for 2015.

cape may winter + a sale

We’ve been enjoying a wintry existence here in Cape May.  As have most of you in this part of the country and beyond.

Winter in Cape May 2

I like that there’s snow on the ground just blocks from the ocean.  It’s peaceful. Winter in Cape May 4

We still try to venture to the beach if it reaches above freezing.  Of course, it requires extra layers of clothing this time of year.

And instead of a beach blanket, we need multiple wool blankets to thaw out after said beach trips.

But…

I have spring on my mind.

It’s not that I want to rush winter.  I really enjoy our distinct 4 seasons but I’m excited for spring inventory.  New treasures, colors, textures and whatnot.

In order to make room and clear some things out, I’ve upped the ante at The West End Garage.

The winter sale is going on now and we’re offering 25% off.  The discount will be applied to everything at Circa Dee in The West End Garage in Cape May.  Open Friday, Saturday & Sunday.

Which means you need to come visit this winter.  I saved you a parking spot…
