Little RED Truck and Vintage Store Window

I know you all have been biting your nails, waiting on the edge of your seat to see this, bawhaha! 
I have a bump out garden window in my kitchen that I have never decorated before but when I found the Little RED truck and the vintage toy ornaments, the whole idea of creating a vintage store window just fell into place. Everything in the window with the exception of the truck and the tin ornaments on the tree I already had. I'm really happy with the way it turned out and I hope you will like it too!
So without further ado .... my vintage store window with the Little RED truck!
Here's a shot of the entire window, I wish that bar wasn't in the middle but I guess I have to sacrifice beauty for structure.


Here's a close up of the right side with the Little RED truck!

And here's a close up of the left side. I love the Little flying airplane!

The Little boy belonged to my Dad. He bought it at an auction in the 70's just because it made him smile. I have no idea how old it is or any details about the manufacturer. 

A little close up of the tree.


I love the Little cowboy and the Little metal horse below him.

And a few more close ups.

  18. Your window display was well worth the wait! You mixed old and new things together perfectly, and I bet you spend more time in the kitchen, just so you can enjoy it. I'm also betting that you'll decorate in that window every year!

  27. Nan,
    LOVE this window! What a trerrific idea and what a great imagination that you thought of everything to make it just perfect!!
    Yes, i see you do have some of the smae ornaments that I do! I loved them the moment I saw them as I thought they reminded of growing up in the 60's when little boys wore coboy outfits and played with wooden planes!

    Hugs,
