Crate & Barrel Halloween

October 6, 2017

By Tab Byrum

Yesterday I shared some great vintage and vintage-inspired items with you from Etsy and today I want to share some mid-century inspired Halloween decor from Crate & Barrel. I always enjoy shopping at Crate & Barrel or visiting their website, so many of their items take inspiration from the 1950’s through the 1970’s in the shapes they use and the patterns used on fabrics and serving ware. I’m particularly excited about the Cauldron Bowls and the Ghost pattern used on several of the dining and serving pieces. Let’s take a look at all the fun and spooky items from Crate & Barrel and as always, Enjoy!!!

October 5, 2017

By Tab Byrum

I love Halloween and my favorite things to decorate with are things that many consider Folk Art or handmade by artists and anything Vintage, today we are going to take a look at a few things available on the Etsy website under the category of Vintage Halloween. Some of the items we are going to look at today are truly vintage or antique pieces and some of them are new but are made to look vintage or antique. There are pages and pages on Etsy to scroll through and see what people have for sale in the way of Vintage Halloween or what people have created themselves. Remember to click on anything orange in the descriptors to visit the website for the item. I hope you enjoy this little stroll down memory lane and let me know if you use any vintage or antique pieces to decorate for Halloween, have a great day and Enjoy!!! (above via)

ibride ~ LOVE THESE TRAYS!!!

October 3, 2017

By Tab Byrum

We are planning a vacation for next year and are thinking about renting an apartment in our destination, while I was looking at possible rentals I was immediately intrigued by some of the pieces being used to decorate the walls in a certain apartment. Luckily the rental agency named the decorative pieces as being from ibride and I immediately looked them up. ibride is a French company and has been around for 20 years and prides itself on creating “dreamlike creations”, I particularly love the trays I’m featuring today where beautiful birds and other animals take on human characteristics while wearing dramatic clothing and costumes. The trays are created through a high laminate process and are made to either be used as flat surface trays or works of art that can be hung on the wall. There are also beautiful trays featuring lovely ladies from the 19th century, I’ll definitely be back to feature more of the beautiful creations from ibride marketed through the Amara website. Enjoy!!!

Autumn Decor At Pottery Barn

August 31, 2017

By Tab Byrum

I meant to check out Pottery Barn last week when I was doing posts for the Fall Decorating Preview, but I got sidetracked as I’m known to do. As we all know Pottery Barn always has great seasonal merchandise for all of the holidays, their shelves are full of wonderful dishes, pumpkins, lanterns, runners and tablecloths, and candles. Pumpkins are a definite theme this year, with the fun gourds coming in all shapes, sizes, and colors and on a wide array of merchandise. Let’s see what PB has and I’ll go into more detail on the photos. Have a great day and Enjoy!!!

Fall Preview 2017 ~ Williams Sonoma

August 25, 2017

By Tab Byrum

I have a big soft spot for anything vintage that has the look of the 1920’s through the 1950’s and Williams Sonoma has a Halloween collection this year called the Grim Tabletop & Decor that I’m really wild about. It calls to mind the antique postcards and posters from those days gone by. The colors of the collection have a definite antique feel to them with lots of orange, black, gold, green and shades of blue. Fun and whimsical Jack-O-Lanterns take center stage in this collection as they take human form and ham it up for lots of Halloween fun. There are plates, platters, glasses, placemats and even an adorable welcome mat. Join me today for a look at the Grim Collection from Williams Sonoma and Enjoy!!!

Fall Preview 2017 ~ MacKenzie-Childs

August 24, 2017

By Tab Byrum

As you well know by now I’m a big fan of all the merchandise and creations from MacKenzie-Childs, especially all of their seasonal and holiday merchandise. Their black and white Courtly Check and stripes work so well with so many other patterns and colors, especially the golds and oranges of Fall. They always have a wide array of pumpkins to choose from and this year doesn’t disappoint, with pumpkins featuring gilding, checks, stripes, and polka dots. I always love to see what they come out with in the way of placemats and this year’s new Pheasant design is gorgeous as well as the fun dish towels that will make great hostess gifts. Enough talk, let’s shop. Enjoy!!!

Fall Preview 2017 ~ Pottery Barn Kids

August 21, 2017

By Tab Byrum

I know it’s hard to believe but two weeks from today is Labor Day, the unofficial end of Summer. So, with that in mind, I thought we would start looking ahead to Fall and see what some of our favorite stores and online retailers have available. I initially set out to see what everyone had available for Fall but found most of them have gone right on to Halloween and today we are going to start with one of my favorite collections I found, the Charlie Brown and Peanuts Halloween table top from Pottery Barn Kids. I always like to check out PB Kids because they have fun stuff, usually with a fun theme in mind. They always use bright colors and fun whimsical characters and this collection doesn’t disappoint. Join me for a look at the Great Pumpkin and how Snoopy and the gang can bring lots of fun and cheer to your home this Fall and Halloween. Enjoy!!!
