Inspired By Window Displays

I love this window.
I took this picture on the street and the sun was really creating a glare.  But it is still a great memento. This is a shop in the big antique market north of Paris.  I have never gone in...I think the prices would be extremely high...since there are no tags in the window.
My bead blogger friends are also very inspirational!  Here are some excellent links for you to enjoy!
