I am not a seasonal decorator. You will find no little vignettes of things found in nature or elements of the solstices or equinoxes in this house. I’m also not a huge fan of the pottery barn but the daughter and I visited their store at the Eaton’s Centre while killing time between appointments at Sick Kids 2 Fridays ago and found some fun Hallowe’en decor which almost make up for their fugly reindeer Christmas dishes.
How fun are these. I want 4 sets of them and promise to use them year round. They’d look great with my mish-mash of collected hand tossed stoneware. I would probably even buy cheesy wall mounts for them for when they’re not in use.
Something else I would certainly use whenever the opportunity arises…or I’d just invent opportunities. The kids could eat their cereal off of it! Thanksgiving gravy could be served from it! I could put it in the bathroom to hold 1756 packages of cotton balls! The possibilities are endless, really.
I have to admit that I would like it better in red or magenta, but this will do.
It’s sparkly! And skully! And it warms the cockles of my little art goth, Martha-wannabe heart!
So yeah, can’t wait until after Hallowe’en when they go on sale. Notez bien folks looking for xmas/birthday pressie ideas for me =)
