Cath Kidston New Season Canvas Button Badge Bag


Lets break from the Halloween theme for just a second to take a look at this fab canvas bag with button badges from Cath Kidston's new season range. Perfect Christmas present - we are hoping for one of these under the tree for definate. Not being a fan of the over chintz it seems a little strange to choose this brand but we think that this bag has the perfect blend of chic, military and vintage influences.

Halloween Decorating Ideas by I Heart Shabby Chic

Happy October! It's time to decorate for Halloween - here are some of the better ideas we have found on our travels - more posts coming soon!


We love the country simplicity of using mainly organic materials to complement natural wood furniture.

Highlight the entrance to your home with a pumpkin runway!


Furnish an outside dining space with Halloween adornments.

Or an interior dining space with homemade decorations.


Get creative with the natural and obvious emblems of Halloween.

Paint your pumpkins - the fireplace is a great feature to dress up at party time.
And finally, it's not just faces that can be carved to create a "glowing" effect!
