A Merry Merry Dr. Seuss Display

One of my childhood dreams came true this year. I designed and created a window display!

Yes, I am a child of the 80’s and it’s possible I watched the film Mannequin one too many times. But when I was little, I wanted to grow up and be a window dresser. My local independent bookstore — Vroman’s Bookstore — made that dream come true. They asked me to create a Dr. Seuss holiday window and of course, I accepted!

As we drink egg nog and celebrate with our families, I thought I’d share a few images of the window’s creation. Here are my adventures with foam core and paint.

I sketched out the Grinch.

I painted all the Whos playing with their toys.

Russell helped me install the window. He’s very tall, which made stringing up the elements with fishing line nice and easy.

The display is based on this illustration in Seuss’s classic How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

And here is my interpretation of it.

The Grinch isn’t in the original illustration, but I had to add him in!

And, voila! A small girl’s dream of creating a window display comes to life!

May all your dreams come true this holiday and New Year. Be Merry Merry everyone!
