For this week’s Must Haves, we’re featuring new signs and art that speak to the season, and they are all made in the USA. These make the perfect accents to your spooky décor and charming home design; happy decorating!

Pat Isaac

Halloween House Wall Hanging

The Fall Memories Tile and Easel is perfect for a small table, bookshelf or mantel in any room. Artist Pat Isaac designed the charismatic imagery and varying fonts to add a fun look to the traditional materials, giving you a unique and eye-catching accent for decorating year after year.

Black Hat Society Sign Blocks

Another Pat Isaac Must-Have complements the imagery on the tile and is part of a collectible series of wall hanging (or shelf-sitting) houses. This one incorporates charming Halloween and fall details into the design for a versatile seasonal accent to display in your own home.

Pat Hutter

Artist Pat Hutter created the Black Hat Society Sign Blocks, a unique trifecta to express Halloween spirit in an entryway, reading nook, or anywhere in your home. Vivid orange and complementary black provide the background for the Halloween-inspired text and traditional pointed witch hat; a traditionally created accent with a distinctive design.

All About the Shoes Sign

A second made in the USA Pat Hutter design is seen in this green sign, featuring classic witch shoes complemented by an asymmetrical wire hanger and black bow. Hang on a doorknob or lean against a bookshelf for an amiable, eye-catching look.

Yes, I Can Drive a Stick SignWonderful Whimsy

Last but certainly not least, this witchy saying brings a lighter feel to Halloween decorations and accents while complementing those accents with its black and white façade. Add a little whimsy to your seasonal décor as well as country charm to your home with this rustic pine sign (and our four other Must-Haves!).

Monday Must-Haves: Halloween Accents

Monday, August 31st, 2015

Witchy Owl & Pumpkin PillowHalloween Snow GlobeIs it ever too early to start decorating for a season or holiday? Maybe, but it’s never too early to start planning! Halloween is exactly two months away, and we are excited to showcase five of our Must-Have Halloween accents – some of which you can get away with displaying during the start of the fall season. September does begin tomorrow, after all, so check them out and happy decorating!

Owl imagery and accents are some of our favorites, and this Witchy Owl Pumpkin Pillow doesn’t disappoint. Artist Bethany Lowe handcrafted this wool and felt pillow, adding to the charm of the cute owl and smiling pumpkin. Perfect for smaller benches or a favorite sofa, this piece will make a charming addition to your fall décor, owl and bird décor, and finally your Halloween décor in the witchy hat and jack-o-lantern details.

Hoot 'N Hollar Halloween CollectibleTrick-Or-Treat Halloween Sign

Spooky and enchanting are great themes for Halloween and fall decorating, and both fit the description of the glittery Halloween Snow Globe. A gentle shake floats the sparkly pieces down around a lighted black tree and pumpkins, creating a warm glow for a fall and Halloween centerpiece or mantel accent. It also complements any snow globe collection and a variety of seasonal décor for a complete festive look.

The bright plumage of Lori Mitchell’s Hoot ‘n Hollar Collectible is perfect for fall, and visibly ready for Halloween, making it one of the most cheerful accents for the season. Place next to a candy dish on Halloween night or create a charming fall display on a hallway table by incorporating similar colors as this collectible for a complementing look that everyone will enjoy.

This Sturbridge Yankee Workshop Exclusive accent will give any wall rustic charm through the distressed surface and ragged black streaks. Even “Trick or Treat” is written in charming, slightly scrolled lettering to add a certain elegance while still portraying a spooky, Halloween look. The orange and black coordinate with classic autumn décor as well as your favorite Halloween pieces.Polka Dot Boo Doormat

Your front porch or entryway is a great place to go all out for decorating, since these are the first spaces your guests will view. Make the first impression positive, and just a little spooky, with the Polka Dot Boo Doormat. Playful polka dots line the edges of the mat and the pumpkin-black cat pair. The green background is a natural look that will highlight other autumn and Halloween greenery or leafy décor in the surrounding space, and you won’t have to deal with dirt being tracked through your home during the fall season.

Monday Must-Haves: Pumpkins

Monday, August 10th, 2015

Pumpkin Seasons Pillow

We’re easing into the fall season – yes, we know summer isn’t over quite yet – this week with a look at 5 of our Must-Have pumpkin décor items. It doesn’t have to be autumn to incorporate most of these into your home, as pumpkins work well with other vegetable or farm-inspired décor during the spring, and bright and vibrant décor for the summer and winter. So continue enjoying the beautiful summer weather as you start thinking about decorating for the harvest season with these 5 Must-Haves.

For Comfort and Style

It’s difficult to keep hand hooked wool pillows off of these lists, since their comfort and detail are always top-quality, and this week is no exception. The Pumpkin Seasons Pillow works variegated greens into the landscape behind three orange pumpkins and a black tree. The colors are perfect for complementing fall décor, as well as other nature inspired accents. This image mimics that of the Harvest Seasons Print so you can carry out the festive look throughout any room.

White Pumpkin Wool Runner

The White Pumpkin Wool Runner is a great addition to any tabletop or countertop surface, and its pumpkin color with white pumpkin accents gives it the perfect look for a country-inspired furniture piece and home. White penny detailing gives this runner a little extra flair for decorating this fall and throughout the year, and incorporating the coordinating pillow will complete the festive and cozy look.

Pumpkin Coir MatPumpkin Jute Basketkaljsdf; For Function and Flair

A doormat is an essential item to have in your entryway or on your front porch all year long, whether your family or guests are tracking in mud, sand, rain or snow. The Pumpkin Coir Mat is a charming accent because of its true-to-its-name shape, and will stand up to the traffic going in and out of your home with its durable coir fibers. The dark orange color will make a great complement to your décor inside and the natural elements outside.

Halloween Parade Girl Sculpture

Braided jute is also another category of accents we can’t stay away from. This Pumpkin Jute Basket is a must-have because its decorative colors and pumpkins make for a charming home accent, while its sturdiness and two convenient handles make it perfect for carrying wood to a fireplace, storing autumn decoratives and for just about anything you can think of. In addition, we have an entire collection of Pumpkin Jute home accents that will complement this festive look throughout your home.

The final item for this week is a little more Halloween oriented, but we couldn’t resist including this Bethany Lowe sculpture into our pumpkin-themed list. With jack-o-lanterns on an orange cape and a pumpkin slung over the shoulder of this charming girl, this collectible brings a unique look to a pumpkin-themed display or whimsically decorated room. Be creative in displaying this piece, and leave it displayed not just for the harvest holiday.
