In true Bonnie White fashion, Lucky 13 and Grandpa’s Giant Pumpkin both charm us and offer their own form of entertainment with the use of people and animals. The latter is perfect for fall; pumpkins, colorful leaves and fun family gatherings are quintessential harvest elements.

Lucky 13 aims to turn the tables on Halloween folklore by showing costumed children having fun – not avoiding – the cute black cats in town.

This week we turn the spotlight on five web exclusive hooked pillows with stylish designs from artist Liora Manne and the added feature of being mildew and fade resistant. So go outdoors and soak up the sun on a well-decorated patio, porch or backyard, and get comfortable with these five accent pillows.

These pillows are made from a blend of 20% acrylic and 80% polyester which allows them to be mildew resistant. The fibers also feature UV stabilizers to resist fading as they sit on a porch chair or back deck.
