It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.... on and over our fireplace mantle! For those who love the Darren Gygi pictures, two 9" pictures fit perfectly on each side of one 20" large picture.

Our Christmas tree is up! The tree is decorated in beautiful sprays of leaves, ivy, and berries, with a few gold accents and a richly colored plaid ribbon.

Santa Kitty is waiting for a special meal on this wintry bird dinnerware!

A new shipment from Calaisio has arrived, including this long handled tray with a glass insert -- what an amazing piece for entertaining! Choose from trays, bowls, lasagnas/bakers, and more.  Many pieces come with a pyrex insert.  Made of tightly woven water vines, Calaisio pieces will add a welcoming warmth to any table.

If autumn orange just isn't the right blend for your home decor, try pale yellow pumpkins.  The harvest feeling is created by using fruits and vegetables, and a wide variety of colors can be used.  Here, we used dark plums and dark grapes to make the lighter colored pumpkins stand out.

As you think about autumn entertaining, think about these beautifully neutral pieces from Julia Knight.  They will create an elegant backdrop for your colorful and tasty culinary creations!

If you need something deeper and more seasonal in color, try one of the new Steel Blue or Bronze pieces from Julia Knight to create a stylish yet rustic feel for your entertaining.

If you haven't baked with Pillivuyt porcelain from France, you are missing out!  This versatile ware bakes your food evenly and is easy to clean.  All of us at the store use Pillivuyt, and we will be happy to help you select pieces to prepare, bake, and serve your favorite recipes.
