As the East Coast was being hammered by hurricane-like weather, I thought I could use a little spring cheer in my day, so I braved the high winds and driving rain and went to see what was new at Halcyon House Antiques.
As I mentioned the other day, Halcyon’s website is up and running, but what I didn’t realize was that it had only been launched last week! Jonathan, Stiles and Eric put a tireless effort into making it a great site, and so easy to navigate, with lots of eye candy (including these two handsome gentlemen!).The colours at Halcyon went a long way to bringing a bright spot into a very rainy day, and cheered me up immensely, as did the company! I saw scores of new things on offer there, and thought I’d share them with you.
First up, lots of bamboo accessories, including these great hand-painted plates, and platters, these great dining room chairs in a Chinese Chippendale pattern, and these fabulous porch chairs with their wonderful green and brown stripes.Halcyon House has recently expanded their collection to include a special selection of things For Her! These handbags come in a range of sizes and will be perfect for the summer. Halcyon also has a great selection of unusual and one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces, all at excellent price points. I loved this necklace and thought it would look wonderful with my black cashmere sweater (yes, it was that cold!). Love this little raffia and shell clutch! It makes me long for summer days… I loved the selection of brightly coloured glasses and table-top pieces. I can just picture a pitcher of mojitos in these beautiful blue glasses. And these swirled green glasses would be great with a light white wine spritzer. This spring has been very cool, so we’re still awaiting the arrival of local asparagus, but in the meantime, these clever salt and pepper shakers will have to suffice. Jonathan is an amazing gardener, so it didn’t surprise me that they had the most gorgeous pots! Love that these are pre-mossed for you! And these garden cloches could either encourage some seedlings to grow, or show off a special piece from your collection.
