Please Vote For Fragile Earth in the Red Bank Holiday Window Decorating Contest

Our town of Red Bank, NJ is holding a Holiday Window Decorating Contest this year.  All participants are to decorate their store windows using the theme of holiday movies.  Fragile Earth decided to use the scene from The Chronicles of Narnia:  The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe where Father Christmas comes to Narnia.  And because you can’t do a Narnia window without the White Witch we added her with Edmund and her gnome to the side.

It took us quite a while to come up with our movie, but once we did we got so excited about it.  What you can’t see in the picture is we have icicles and snowflakes hanging from the ceiling and there are twinkling fairy lights under the snow.

If you love our window as much as we do, please take a moment to vote for us here.  We not only win bragging rights but a local media package as well and YOU are entered to win a $50.00 Red Bank gift card.

Window Display 5/15/2012

L Frank Baum was born May 15, 1856. He also wrote one of the most iconic children’s stories of all time, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. So, to celebrate his birthday, we here at Fragile Earth Stuffed Animals created our window display around his work.

We grew up watching The Wizard of Oz on TV, usually at one of the holidays. Easter, maybe? The grownups would sit down to dinner and all the kids would watch the movie.

I always loved it when the Wicked Witch of the East’s legs shriveled up and disappeared under the house.

The Wizard (in his balloon), the Wicked Witch of the West (on the bar), and the flying monkeys.

Our flying monkeys aren’t nearly as scary as the ones in the movie!

My mother loved the books when she was young and she kept them in a special bookcase in the hall. We were allowed to read them if we did so very carefully! Many people don’t know that Baum wrote more than one book about Oz. Actually, there are 18 books (including short stories, etc.) that feature the magical land.
