Hallow's Eve is fast approaching!

Peek inside for some hauntingly good finds!
A new addition and making many new fans this spooky season...the majestic IllumiNoir Halloween candle. Sleek and lavishly fragranced, it is filled to the brim with a premium soy blend wax and the highest concentration of fragrance available. IllumiNoir candle is housed in a stylish matte black glass container and is creatively presented in an elegant box with a clever magnetic seal. The box is topped off with a perfect holiday scene of buzzards in front of a shiny moon...where darkness falls and danger looms.

I am loving these newsprint wood signs with hauntingly good Halloween salutations scrawled stylishly across them. They pair perfectly with our hobnail mercury glass compotes...elegant spookiness indeed.
White wax jack o'lanterns inspired by the 1950 versions from the Gurley Company. Ours complete with a battery operated t-lite.

Hands down an absolute customer favorite! Our spooky tree bottle light candle! Looks great while burning and smells even mulled cider, yum!

Strand after strand of flying black lace bats complete one of the haunted windows. What fun hanging from a tree in your yard with a strobe light during trick or treat or maybe a curtain of them for your party guests to walk through or even a colony of bats flying (draped) around your chandeliers?
How many ghosts can you feed at a 12 foot table? None! Ghosts don't eat! But you can feed 14 hungry guests who just returned from trick or treating (and what about those upcoming holiday feasts?).
My lovely parchment roses, what were so beautiful with the sea fans and player piano music paper at Country Living. But now, you are "Drop Dead Gorgeous" in these ghastly gray urns with dripping moss accents. How dreadful!
Looks like heads have rolled

White sheet like things floated, they looked just like ghosts
But the skeleton with bones clacking, it scared me the most
Down to my last 4! Better hurry in if you want one of these gothic looking black wax skull candles.
"The angry owls and their piercing eyes perched high in the leaf bare trees, the gaze following me all the while. Then suddenly through the mist filled air, a shape appeared with long gray hair."
Of course it's not all Halloween, there is the autumnal season to celebrate. Apple stems, hydrangea & acorn arrangements and our 3 fabulous Farmhouse teas to warm you up on those chilly mornings and evenings.

Our Heirloom Pumpkin candles in a beautiful bronzed leaf bowl.

My absolute favorite piece in the shop right now! I love this and will hate to see it leave but I don't think I will get to enjoy it very long. Two customers have already measured it for spots in their homes (count me and that's three :-)!
urban wire crows nesting in these lichen branches
One of my beloved fall favorites, the Cinderella Pumpkin or ‘Rouge Vif d’Etampes’ is a beautiful French heirloom pumpkin. It first became available in the U.S. in 1883. The Rouge Vif d' Etampes has a thick, sweet flesh that is moist and custard like. They are beautifully piled in this 1930's European baby bathtub.
But what would Halloween be without the famous Haunted photos? Add to your collection or start one today.
Did that picture just move?
And so much more...there always is!

Hi, Lisa--

Your store is looking FANTASTIC! Maybe I can get there soon. May be visiting a friend in Pickerington on Sunday the 18th, right in time for the Thornville Street Fair. {Don't worry--I'd give you a heads-up!}

LOVE those metallic skulls. They are to die for! {Hee hee.}

Oh, your pictures reminded me just how much I loved visiting your store last Saturday! It was the highlight of my weekend (next to visiting with my lovely Mamma, of course....) Beautiful, beautiful, store and so delectably decorated for the Halloween holiday. I can only imagine what it will look like for Christmas! It was so nice meeting you and I look forward to many more visits. Also, thanks for the safety pin for my broken strap on my dress......Adore that Urban Farmhouse! I must also commend your dear husband for his thoughtful commentary on the tragic loss of a special person from your community. I too lost a child and although such a loss breaks your heart into ways that most cannot be imagined, it does change the way one perceives life and the thereafter. I never end a conversation with a loved one without telling them I love them and I appreciate the very smallest pleasures that life has to offer me. I always try to remind people to look for joy in the smallest of things......
