Halloween is my one of my favourite celebrations, next to Thanksgiving. It was one part of living in the USA that rubbed off on me. In the States they live it large at Halloween. I love the costumes, the 'hallowedness', the bonfires and the ghouls. Not to mention the sweets. It is my Son's first Halloween and I am going to carve pumpkins. I bought him a vampire mask to put on for a photo opportunity. Not sure if a 1 year old will be into that, I guess I will find out. 

Here are some inspirations for home style Halloween decoration from Martha Stewart.

Another Time Another Place

All those years I was travelling to Paris and Milan to buy for my stores arida and attic, I didn't think it was going to end. It was such a busy and stressful time, despite being rewarding and inspiring in many ways. The fashion industry felt like a wonderful, fabulous and scary merry go round that you couldn't get off. It was a fun ride.

Recently I sold both stores. It feels like the end of an era. It has been bittersweet making such a big change but I am crazy about things to come - launching an e-tail business, being a mother and Domestic Executive and living on our farm. I now can look back at the last two decades of experience through the romance of rose coloured glasses. Here are some of my personal photographic mementos.
