Decorating for Halloween - It's definitely fall!


Halloween decorations are everywhere! I held off until yesterday to decorate. The store is now officially, however subtly, Halloween'd. No spider webs, no crows, just simply a few big pumpkins, jack-o-lanterns,, gourds, Indian corn, and fall leaves that my husband Bob, with permission, gathered from a neighbor's lawn.

The fall leaves add the perfect touch to our displays.

Debbi worked her magic once again and mixed the pumpkins and gourds with white ironstone, a c1880s marble top parlor table, a chippy painted stool and starfish, pumpkins and twigs. We mixed in Victorian fine silver and voila! . . . it all works.

    Our custom burlap fit the bill for the final touch to our
    Halloween display.

Call the store or email if there's anything you might be interested in.

Very pretty. I know living in different areas things are different. I love the beach things. I used to live in Florida,but since moving to Ms. i just have a few shells. I do miss the colors. You did great and I love the store.
