In the mid 1930s my father's display company created Macy's mechanical Christmas window displays. I was very young -- 3 or 4 -- but I still remember the giant toy machine that cranked out all sorts of toys.

I worked briefly as a display designer in a local department store but never got to do anything as fantastic as what my father's company had created.

Decades later, in the mid 1970s, I created this window display for "dollsandreams" in New York City. That is where I discovered Sasha dolls and where I spent many happy hours "interviewing" potential adoptees.

Over the years I created several windows for the shop but this was one of my favorites.
