Gearing Up for Autumn!

Preparing for one of my favorite times of the year.......... 


Beautiful fall colors..........make for awesome home decor!

Fall in New York State means grape pie time, as well as yummy grape tarts. With so many wonderful wineries open for tours and tastings, it's the perfect time to travel here.

Time for the deer to go into hiding, time for the birds to start thinking of warmer skies to fly in.

Harvest and gathering time! You'll need plenty of baskets! I really do love this season and the holidays that go with it!

Starting with my favorite...HALLOWEEN! 
Here are some goodies I found in these great shops on Etsy. Have a peek to see what else they may have lurking there

These are truly amazing and sterling silver! You can purchase them today at: 

I always loved honeycomb decorations as a kid. This pumpkin is perfectly displayed here. See more at:

Ok this is just amazing work! I love this Harry Pottery inspired miniature furnishing set! What a great photo prop for Halloween or goth wedding decor or the ultimate Halloween party decoration! Check out more like this one here:

Of course the costume is the most important part of the Halloween celebration and there are some great ones here:

You can find these and much more in my handmade shop:

What's Halloween without a witches broom?

Rigor Toni, Spider Cider, Candy Adam's Apples...just to name a few of these fun food signs which are part of a Halloween party package, all ready to use!
 One of the holidays I think really gets neglected, yet, is one of the most genuinely happiest holidays, is Thanksgiving. 

No presents to buy, just a time to reflect with family & friends what you are thankful for.....and of course a delicious roasted turkey! Here are a couple of great finds in my vintage shop for this special day: 

Plymouth Rock plate!

   ......and this unique Thanksgiving diorama, in my handmade shop. A tribute to the first Thanksgiving!
