For years, I would hear tales about Black Friday South of the border and for years, we would have to console ourselves with Boxing Day sales which seemed quite mundane in comparison. With the influx of American stores setting up camp here, Black Friday has finally come to Canada. Yay! The local mall is opening up at 6am tomorrow. Do I dare? It'll be a regular work day for me but I'm having a Black Friday sale over at L'Heure Bleue At Home's Etsy Shop. Enter Coupon Code bleue15 for 15% off at checkout. Sale is on throughout the weekend.

Do you find time just running away from you? One minute it's Summer and the next it's Autumn and not just the beginning of Autumn but Halloween. I do find decorating for Halloween problematic especially as it involves the colour orange. I think I've said before that orange and I have an uneasy relationship. There is something so bold and assertive about it. Lately, though, I have been warming up to it and, in tones of sienna and russet, I've even begun to think of it as a punchy neutral. Of course, having an overgrown man-boy in the household who adores pumpkins means that I must learn to love orange especially if it comes in the form of a pumpkin.
I picked up a vintage charcoal black Pyrex casserole dish recently. I do adore it as the charcoal black gives it a contemporary edginess that's perfect for Halloween dinner.
I thrifted a trio of milk glass vases as well. I think this qualifies as a collection. I adore milk glass vases as well as I consider them classic and timeless pieces that work with any colour scheme.
Of course nothing says Autumn more than a carpet of rust hued leaves.
Oh, and apples of course. You know Autumn is here when crates and barrels full of sweet, crunchy goodness appear one day at the grocery store.
