Fall Home Preview from Etsy

Autumn, my favorite season of the year is fast approaching.   Jennifer hopes it will take a bit longer to come because she loves summer but it can't get here fast enough for me.  I love the sights, the smells, the colors and of course the fashions. As I was driving home last night, I realized that the trees had a yellow hue and are already slowly changing.  There is a street in our neighborhood where the trees overhang and walking or driving down it is like being in the south.  It looks truly beautiful in the fall with the many variations of color in the leaves. We lost a few during Hurricane Sandy last year but there are still enough for a beautiful photo which I will take and share with you when the leaves have fully turned. Over the next few weeks, Jennifer and I look forward to sharing some of our fall finds with you.  Today we start off with finds for the home.

Another thing I like about the fall are the beautiful decorations and the many opportunities to entertain such as harvest time, Halloween and Thanksgiving—just to name a few.  Shopping for seasonal decorations and entertaining accessories for these special occasions can be very time consuming.  One of the best online places to shop for the items on your list is Etsy.   You can find almost everything you will need on the site and best of all, the items are mostly all handmade by the artisans so you know that there is wonderful attention to detail paid to the creation of each item. I peruse the site and found a few items to inspire you in your search and you can find many more here

Plus Size and Proud

Pick up any fashion magazine and you’ll find advice on “flattering" styles. Big derriere? Avoid back pockets. Not wasp-waisted? Stay away from horizontal stripes. Arms less than sculpted? Long sleeves are your friend. A growing number of women are refusing to anguish over not being a size 2, and they’ve abandoned these commandments of “flattering” fashion.  Read more on Etsy!

Death by Chocolate Candy Mushrooms

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="500"]image Chocolate Candy Mushrooms by andiespecialtysweets[/caption] These delightful Shitake-esk mushrooms (botanist not withstanding) are the perfect balance of salty-sweet-chocolaty-enlightenment (Buddhist not withstanding). We fancy these mushrooms as an uncommon embellishment for a unique event, and a surprisingly delightful gift for any garden/gourmet enthusiast.

TGIF

This was only the first week back at work after the holidays but it seemed like a really long one so I’m glad that today is Friday and I look forward to the weekend.  The Oscar nominations were announced yesterday and I’m behind on seeing many of the nominated films so I think that I will check out at least one this weekend.  I’m thinking of Les Misérables.  What are your plans for the weekend?

Will the Ladies Crawley of Downton Abbey inspire a resurgent of 1920s Style Fashions?

Will the return of the 3rd season of Downton Abbey to PBS last night result in an increase in the sale of 1920’s style fashion in the U.S as happened in the UK when the new season started in October.image If you were inspired to dress like Ladies Sybil, Edith or Mary after watching the premiere last night, here are a few choices that you don’t have to travel across the pond to purchase. image 1920s Illustré Feuille chiffon dress from DearGolden image Women’s 1920 Cloche hat from Vintage Style Hat Shop image 1920s Black Illusion Bodice Lace & Silk Crepe Gown from adelinesattic   image 1920s Evening Shoes in Silver and Gold from 4birdsvintage
