Halloween in Romantic Country Fall 2011

Romantic Country - Fall 2011

The Fall 2011 issue of Romantic Country features a piece on "charming and spooky Halloween decor." On page 46 and 47 of the article, there's a table setting and decor--all mostly in white and rustic and 2 skeletons are sitting at the white table which has white pumpkins on it--it's a fun look. The whole piece is more about subtle decor mixed with fall flowers and pumpkins. And adding masks to portraits or other similar ghostly features is something to help transform paintings in a room rather than removing them. Very sedate but elegant.

Country Sampler September 2011 Issue

The first fall magazine to hit the stands that I've found is the September issue of Country Sampler. It was a little disappointing as far as Halloween goes--not much in there. More fall than anything--and only 1 vintage item that I could find featured on page 8. It's an old-time cracker featured in the Antiques Q' and A' section that someone put either a scrap item or gummed seal onto of a cat. Value is given by Claire Lavin who wrote 2 collecting guides, Time for Halloween Decorations and also Timeless Halloween Collectibles about the Beistle decorations from 1920-1949. You can check out these publications at this page of our website.
