Lewes's Loveliest Christmas Window is Back!

IMG_1298

Hark! It’s officially Christmas! Because the Landsdowne Place Christmas window at number 25 is back in situ! This year I notice a little acer (Japanese maple) behind the badger unloading the boot of the Volkswagen, and a lot more fir trees in the garden. There’s also a new sign on the window that hosts this house, inviting parents to pop their children on the windowsill for a ‘ringside view’ (still think this is so Christmas-spirted and kind).

If you want to know the story behind this lovely alpine-style doll’s house full of fuzzy Sylvanians cooking up a turkey, boozing in the upstairs drawing room and falling about in the snow outside – how it came to be and who’s behind it – see the ‘Christmas Window Wonderlands‘ post, written almost exactly a year ago.

Last year I noticed a few more ‘window wonderlands’ pop up around town. I’ll take some snaps and give you locations if they appear again. Meantime, if you’re passing through Cliffe, there’s a Christmas railway scene in the window of the Giles Leisure hot tub centre and indoor pool. This is in the big car park behind Cliffe High Street, so nip and have a look if you’re in the area.

And don’t get me started on the poinsettia-filled window at No.1 Lewes on Cliffe Bridge – pretty gorgeous but, OK, more for the grown-ups. (Note the above pic was taken before they really went to town on the poinsettias in honour of Late Night Shopping last week).

I create these for brands and agencies both big and boutique, in areas including design, homes and interiors, travel, fashion, lifestyle, beauty, food, and kids and families. I believe clear, clean messages bolster brands and businesses. They evoke emotion and ignite inspiration, and when written well, they’re easier to absorb – and respond to.
