September Display = Carnival + Back-to-School Theme

For my September theme, I thought of all the carnivals and festivals coming to town as well as the children going back to school. A lot of my inspiration came from some of my favorite items purchased over the years from The Black Apple.

Behind this little aproned girl are both of Emily Martin's published books opened to their school scene pages: Oddfellow's Orphanage (left) and The Black Apple's Paper Doll Primer (right).

The book underneath her is a limited edition Oddfellow's Compendium I was lucky to snag from her shop.

The Black Apple Lost on the Midway print, complete with a popcorn bag and some stylish tickets.

This may be my most favorite monthly display yet!

Halloween 2011 and 2012

I went with a more vintage, fun theme this year instead of my normal witch's apothecary look.

These busts got their Halloween costumes on.

This is the famous sofa table that gets decorated every month.
