We’ve had some fun since starting Captured In Squares earlier this year and our work has led to some great collaborative projects. This past week we spent an evening setting up a window display at The Handpicked Home in White Rock to celebrate the beginning of Fall featuring a selection of dream catchers handmade by one half of CIS, Janette (check out her talents at her online shop Shop Ava to Zoe). Our friend and owner of The Handpicked Home, Piya, has stocked her shop with everything from home decor and apparel, to bath & body products, jewelry, and gift items, and you can find this window display set up there for the next few months.
Piya changes her window displays throughout the year and with the recent change of seasons she switched things up from ‘Swing Into Summer’ to ‘Dreaming of Fall’. How cute is that?! We also have to mention her talent for writing backwards on the inside of her windows so passersby outside can read the message on her windows. Talent right there, pure talent.
To create this display Janette custom created 8 white dream catchers ranging in size from 2″ up to 31″ and we positioned them to fill the main area of the shop windows. Janette recently began stocking some her handmade items at the shop, including dream catchers, and Kat has worked with Piya for the past year+, so this was the perfect opportunity to bring all three of us together. Since we completed the display after shop hours one evening, Kat returned during the day to take a few photos and we couldn’t resist sharing a few of them here. We had a lot of fun with this and look forward to hopefully more projects like it to come (the holiday season isn’t too far away!). If you’ve been in The Handpicked Home, you know how lovely this shop and Piya are, and if you haven’t we’re hoping this gives you even more motivation to visit. If you get a chance to stop by we’d love to hear what you think of the display!
