the window display “in the making”, part two: sketching…
Posted in amsterdam: made by hand, behind the scenes May 28th, 2010 by pia

My trusty calculator – so very important for dimensions. For those of you with young kids, can you pass on this important message from me: “Remember kids, if you want to be creative when you grow up, make sure you study math at school, it really does come in handy later, I promise you.”

Royal Buffet’s papillon tags fluttering about. What else can you see?

Okay sketches done, notes taken,  I’m off to buy the supplies now…

    Morning Pia,

    Your window is going to be brilliant by the looks of things, thanks for sharing.

    I thought of you and how much I want to visit Holland as I met a wonderful Dutch lady at the airport in Faro this week. She was travelling home to Rotterdam with her 5 month old black labrador who was simply beautiful, they both were. Serendipity.
