Coming Soon! ---- FALL
Even though I love summer, and its end is bittersweet, my very favorite season of all is Fall. Crisp cool evenings, cozy knit sweaters, leaves turning gorgeous shades of russet and gold, the first fire in the fireplace----I love it all! And, of course, the changing of seasons always requires some decorating changes as well. We will be totally re-doing the shop next week for fall and our Portobello Road Market, bringing out tons of new merchandise including all the Fall and Halloween. (As most of you frequent customers know, it will be rather a mess during this process.....but we assure you the results will be worth the wait!) We will be closed Friday afternoon (Aug. 19) to display all of the antiques that our fabulous team of antique dealers will be bringing in, with Portobello Road Market opening Saturday, August 20 at 9:00! (Note the earlier opening time.) Scones and tea will be served from 9:00 - 12:00, with champagne and samples of new Stonewall Kitchen recipes served from 2:00 - 4:00. Come early and stay late! Can't wait to see you there!
Love these pumpkins in the urns framed by the bittersweet wreaths!
Bring out your fall-colored pottery and light some candles for a cozy autumn dinner.
Turn those wine glasses upside down and they become a cloche on the bottom and a votive holder on the top. (Make sure you save some for the wine as well!)
A touch of whimsy for your front porch.......
Another great use of urns, this time for the outside. And who wouldn't love coming up this sidewalk at twilight, with all the candles lit?!
Start planning your Fall decorating now. See you Saturday!
