Gorgeous pumpkins

I have such a thing with pumpkins, I love the ghost and heirloom variety and its something I splurge on every year.  I would rather have scads of awesome pumpkins every fall than buy lots of fresh flowers throughout the year (don’t get me wrong I love tulips and other great cut flowers but pumpkins top the list!) And yes I love the PLUSH pumpkins offered by my friends at Leftovers Antiques here in Texas and online at LoveFeast Table! LoveFeast is sponsoring the blog this month so I wanted to highlight their pumpkins, acorns and more!

You have probably seen the LoveFeast pumpkins (made by same source as the Leftovers pumpkins) on other blogs and websites…be sure and look closely and don’t be fooled by imitations! Did you know that LoveFeast also sells my beloved Sugarboo art and products as well as some gorgeous tablecloths and other home decor, baby gifts, etc… I love this little bag and other items for teacher gift or a friend (or myself!;;)!

But it is the plush pumpkins with the wonderful stems I always think about when I think of LoveFeast and what Chris Ann and Kristin do!

Have you seen the new linen and metallic pumpkins???

I love the colors and I love their friendship!

I also admire how they articulate their philosophy

A beautiful life is built of many pieces—the people, things and experiences that inspire us to breathe deep and savor each step in our journey. 

They believe that beautiful things happen around the table as families and friends share and do life.  And good to remember this time of year!

So I am thrilled to have LoveFeast as a sponsor on the blog!  Be sure and check out their acorns which I love and the breast cancer Hot PINK pumpkins that benefit Breast Cancer Research..

I need to get one of these for my mom, a breast cancer survivor (she is doing well thank you for everyone that continues to ask and pray) and she is a lover of plush pumpkins!

Shopping at Leftovers Antiques

As many of you know one of my favorite stores in Texas, and a longtime blog sponsor, is Leftovers Antiques & Home Mercantile in Brenham. Texas. And one of the best times to visit the store is during the fall and spring Round Top Show.

I have been working with them for over a year on rebranding their business and developing a new website. I have enjoyed working with them so much and learning more about antiques and the business of buying abroad and importing etc.  They are also sponsors on the blog and I am proud to report each season what new is going on at their wonderful store each season as many of you travel to our area for Texas Antiques Week or just a weekend getaway.

That is great thing about Leftovers, they are open all of the time whether it’s rain or shine, antiques week or not.  But during the time before and during the Antique Shows they do truly BRIM with antique goodness…both European and American, big and small.  Huge pieces to fill a wall or build a room around or a small collection of bottles, a Christmas ornament or turtle shell!  I love this green handled box.

And they always have blue and white which you know I love, both old transferware and now some new blue and white lamps!

If you follow them on Facebook and Instagram you will know when containers arrive and can truly get first pickings.

Are their pieces an investment? yes but they aren’t things you will find at Pottery Barn or Restoration Hardware.  They have survived wars and travelled across the ocean to give your home some character and history.  I think that is something we all crave a bit.

Ed and Michael spend months each year living and traveling around Europe looking for antiques to bring back to Texas and offer for sale.  That is an expensive venture and adds into the cost of the piece. Some pieces also get special attention, restoration or retrofitting so they are ready to use once places with customers.

This summer, Ed and Michael totally flipped the store and added a “Lake Leftovers” section with an American camping/hunting/fishing vibe.  Clearly more American and rustic in feel than what they usually do, the new displays also have some Scottish plaid mixed in for a great mix of American and European we all  love and expect of their store. Such a mix of rustic and glam!

Of course they also know for bedding and rugs and they continue to carry Bella Notte, Traditions, Pom Pom, Dash and Albert and now Arte Pura!  This line also includes some amazing drapery panels!  They have also found some antique beds (which are full size) and had them stretch to larger sizes to fit modern lifestyle..love that.

The store is full of new antiques straight from Europe as well as gifts and bedding, rugs, books, lighting, epicurean and more.

Stop by anytime during Round Top and YOU ARE INVITED to their annual JAZZ NIGHT party this Saturday with music and yummy food and drink from 6-9 pm! I will be there and would love to meet you!
