Thresholds: Pumpkin spice and everything nice (Fall 2017)

We are rolling around to Fall again and that means Pumpkin Spice everything! Stop by a few of our favourite coffee shops, like King of Cups in Stellarton, Noveltea in Truro or The Tall and Small Café in Antigonish, this Fall to see what they are offering in the way of this flavourful hot beverage. And if you aren’t into Pumpkin Spice Lattes, here are a few ways to bring a little of the season into your life, Pumpkin Spice style!

ELEVATE YOUR PUMPKIN GAME

When it comes to displaying this year’s pumpkins, take them to new heights with this tin stand from Michael’s Craft Store, no matter if your pumpkin is the real deal or a pretty replica.

GET THE SCOOP

Hand carved by Matt Dondale of The Spoonery Woodenware & Needful Things, this coffee scoop will have you scooping up your morning grind in fine style. You can find these and so much more at the New Glasgow Farmer’s Market.

WRAP IT UP

Cozy layers, tall boots and a spicy scarf are the best way to bring Fall to your wardrobe. This Pumpkin Spice inspired scarf will have you strutting your stuff to the pumpkin patch. Available in store or on-line through Beck & Boosh.

GET A HANDLE ON FALL

Vintage pottery mugs make for the perfect vessel to sip a hot beverage, Pumpkin Spice or not, any time of the year, but especially as the days get shorter and the temperature dips down. Hit your favourite thrift store or antique shop to see what treasures you can score!

IT’S THE BOMB

Love to soak in a warm bath as the evenings get shorter? Why not try a 100% Natural Pumpkin Spice Bath Bomb from Pearl & Daisy! Or scrub your cares away with a sweet-smelling sugar scrub? Pearl & Daisy is based on Inglis Street in Truro but also has new locations in Stewiacke and Tatamagouche.

IT’S A WASH

No one enjoys doing the dishes but just maybe these pumpkin tea towels found at Winners just might help make the chore a little more fun.

Lori Byrne is an Interior Decorator and a country-girl at heart. Fall is a personal favourite – rich colours, warm layers and a good reason to snuggle in! Exploring the Stewiacke Valley Barn Quilt tour has already been a highlight of my Fall since learning more about the history of barn quilts. If you need me, I’ll be planning decorating projects or painting more barn quilts in the studio! You can find me over at www.farmfreshstyle.ca
