7 Tips to Create Winning Window Displays - taken from Entrepreneur Magazine

1.  Start with a theme and then plug in the pieces.

2.  Suspend items from the ceiling or lower them close to the floor while maintaining an eye level focal point.

3.  Surprise customers.  Incorporate whimsical objects in your window.

4.  Use bold shapes and colors.

5.  Keep it clean.  Don't clutter your window with lots of product.

How to clean your vintage linens and lace

Cleaning your vintage linens and lace.

1/2 Cup Cascade
1/2 Cup Biz
1/2 Gallon of cool to lukewarm water

Fill your washer or tub with cool water - I used my kitchen sink.  Add the Cascade and Biz to the water.  Allow the cloth to soak overnight or at least 8 hours.  Check the stained areas.  If they are clean, drain the solution and rinse in cool water.  Allow to air dry.  If the stains remain, mix a new solution and soak again.  Depending on the type of stains, it may take two or three soaks but they should come out.  Rinse in cool water until all soap is out.
