Halloween in July?

Okay, we admit it. We may very well be the only people on the planet who actually like it when stores start putting their Halloween stuff out. We were filled with joy when on a recent trip to HomeGoods we saw their collection of Halloween trinkets and decorations adorning the shelves. Our little eyes spied a most haunting black feather tree that we just had to get. We could see visions of witches and devils and ghosts hanging goulishly from the feather branches. The tree stands about 2 feet tall, base to top. We're going to embellish the stand to dress it up and make it more appealing and add a creepy looking eyeball for the top. HomeGoods is a great place to find really interesting seasonal trees from large red metacllic trees to a beautiful white feather tree; perfect for displaying baby items, so it was just a matter of time when a black feather tree would land in our possession.

It's been all about halloween these last few weeks. We are finishing up our sketches for our 2008 Halloween collection. Here is a sneak peek inside our sketch book and some of our ideas.

This brings us to our last bit of info...we're working on an ad for Oct/Nov issue of Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion. We'll post it once it's ready.

So while everyone is at the beach and shucking corn....we're eating CANDY CORN!

See you next week!


  1. Congrats you guys! Love your new blog and big advertising plans. Very exciting! Best of luck to you both and have a blast in blogland.
    Glittery hugs,

  2. Hi Lianne and Paul,

    Welcome to the blogosphere! I've been blogging for a year now. It is a great way to keep in touch with people and to make new connections. Love your work as always...and I can't believe Gryffin is 3 years old!
    Good luck with all your plans.


  3. I've been checking in with your website since Fall 2007 after seeing your ad in a magazine (probably Home Companion, right?). Love, love, love the black feather tree - I'm stopping at Home Goods on the way home tomorrow 'cause I simply have to have one, too. And because I'm a custom quilt designer, I, too, work ahead of the season like you guys - I have a pumpkin wall hanging on the worktable as we speak. Keep up the good work - you are an inspiration to us all! And congrats on the blog!!

  4. Glad to see you are blogging! I am a huge fan of your Christmas decorations! From what I just saw...I am also a fan of your Hallowen decorations as well LOL!
    Nice work.

    I am still in summer mode, but will be visiting frequently.

    Best wishes!
