November 5, 2018

By Tab Byrum

We have a few signs worked up for Fall at ShanTabulous STudios on Etsy that I want to share with you today. We have a couple that are traditional in color and design and a few others that are more non-traditional, especially in color. I’ll go into more detail below with the photos of the signs. These will all look great sitting on an easel in your entryway to greet your guests, or maybe on your Thanksgiving Buffet table amongst all the goodies or added to the Fall Decorations on your fireplace mantel.

It’s October 31st, Happy Halloween!!!! Today in celebration of everyone’s favorite October holiday we are taking a look back at some Vintage Halloween images for parties, costumes, and idea books. I have to do some research on Bogie Books but they were apparently a deal back in the first half of the 20th century, they were books filled with ideas on parties, costumes, entertaining and having fun for Fall and Halloween. Join me today for a little trip back in time and see how Halloween was celebrated close to 100 years ago and enjoy your Halloween this year and be safe. Enjoy and BOO!!!!!! (above via)

Colors of Autumn In OKC 2018

October 29, 2018

By Tab Byrum

We’re having a gorgeous Fall season here in Oklahoma this year. We had lots of rain in the Spring and again in the late Summer and early Fall and that’s led to all of our trees being healthy and full of foliage to change colors. We don’t get as diverse colors as other parts of the country do but we do get lots of strong yellows, oranges, and reds in our trees. Oklahoma is also home to lots of Evergreens and Cedar trees (ugh, Cedar pollen) so all the green makes a great backdrop for the Fall colors as well as the big, blue Oklahoma sky. We were out running errands over the weekend and I grabbed the camera before we headed out and we took the scenic route home and took some photos I want to share today. Where ever you are I hope you are also having a beautiful Autumn and can take some time to enjoy it before we head into the frantic and crazy days of the end of the year holidays. Have a great Monday and Enjoy!!!
