Maybe just maybe we will get our act together, at Lewis Trimble, this Christmas. We finally got our windows to look like Christmas. This year we are keeping it simple and elegant. Our Christmas tree is a classic silver and white with lots and lots of tiny white lights. We have added both gold and mirrors to the mix in our window. The light fractures over our multiple mirrors dancing throughout the window and onto the street. We have a gold sirmos table and pair of large brass Giraffes sanding on a low round Milo Baughman table. Added to the mix is a Fontana Art floor lamp and a Panton Mirror.
Lewis was blessed with a birthday close to Christmas. So I'm off to make his favorite Birthday/ Christmas Cake. I do this every year. I posted the recipe last year, but for you who might nave missed it. Here it is.
