Can you believe it’s Halloween already? I’ve been looking forward to this day for so long (we bought costumes back in mid-September) and yet I always feel rushed to prepare.
Anyway, this year I’ve kept it mercifully simple. Bought a giant bag of candy at Target, which promises 180 pieces (okay, now there’s more like 160 pieces, but never mind…), which should hopefully be enough. We’ve decorated the house a bit (complete with orange twinkle lights) and we’ve carved our pumpkins early! (and knock on wood, they haven’t collapsed from mold.)
Even more fun? Our family is dressing up this year, Peter Pan-themed! J.M. Barrie would be so proud. I shall be Tiger Lily!
Have a lovely and safe Halloween, all!
I spotted this online and love the retro vibe and cultural references! It’s available as a T-shirt via this link.
Have you seen the spring line from Mini Boden USA?
I’m loving all of these pieces. They’ve gone really big with union jack items for boys this season – even including canvas union jack sneakers! Sadly, they haven’t shared the Britlove for girls (although there are some gorgeous floral numbers that I wish were available in grown-up sizes).
Get it while you can! These items are sure to sell out quickly!
The union jack is a fantastic design element. Take a gander at these children’s bedrooms, all using the union jack as a motif.
A special thanks to Mix and Chic for sourcing these photos.
So, what about British lunch bags, I could hear you ask. How about this?
You know how I feel about union jack items – LOVE THEM. This little insulated neoprene lunch bag by Dabba Walla is machine washable, stain resistant and perfect for holding your your little (or big) anglophile’s lunch (ie. cheese ploughman’s, scotch eggs, crisps, pudding, etc.).
Be the envy of your anglophile friends with these amazing pillows by Naked Decor. They’re designed by Supon, a Thailand-born, U.S.-based graphic designer, who specializes in distinctive home accessories for style-minded homeowners.
