Long Weekend

Ahhhh… it’s our first long weekend in the warm weather and the forecast looks like it’s going to be beautiful. Although there’s lots going on, you should make a point to come to Halcyon House and see what’s new in the shop.

It’s the last weekend for the Henry Koehler show of equestrian and other artworks. This has been such a successful show and we’ve been thrilled with everyone’s response to his art.

One of our fun new items for the summer is our Turkish towels. They are 100% cotton, with a flat weave that’s light and airy. They don’t take up a huge amount of space like terry-cloth towels do, and they’re large enough to be used as a beach towel, a cover up or a sarong, measuring a generous 72” x 37” with a great fringe on the ends. IMG_0384The Turkish towels come in a rainbow of colors, so you can assign each person their own and no one gets mixed up!image

If you’re having guests this weekend , there’s no better way to keep your food covered than with this fabulous cake stand! Even if you buy the cupcakes or cookies, they will look so elegant under this dome. IMG_0600

And for those drinks by the pool, you will want to get some of our amazing acrylic glassware, which looks like actual glass, but without the danger of breakage.

And don’t forget our melamine plates, which look like they’ve just arrived from Italy or Province. Again, they’re shatter-proof, so perfect for picnics, pool-side dining and small children!IMG_9906

As always, if you see anything that interests you, please contact Eric at the shop. He’d love to hear from you.

Lighten Up for Summer!

Now that summer’s almost here, it’s time to ditch the heavy jewelry and put on some light pieces! Of course, Halcyon House is here to fill your needs. Let’s take a look at some of the pieces that have just arrived in the shop.

One of the trends this summer is statement pieces in silver. Our hand-crafted silver pieces are just the thing.

These clear chains are just the thing to set of a great summer tan!

Here’s a bit of the detail.

Although there’s nothing more classic than pearls, this piece has been updated with faceted glass beads to make a statement.

One of our favorite jewelry designers is Angela Caputi from Florence in Italy. Her pieces are exclusive to Halcyon House.

Turquoise + white + a tan = classic summer look. And we can provide the first two elements!

The clasp on this necklace is totally on-trend with the nautical look.

More Angela Caputi with some tortoise mixed in.

This is such a great piece. Can’t you envision it with a simple dress and some chic sandals?

Bone and tortoise in a range of shapes.

As always, if you’re interested in anything, please contact Eric at the shop!

Halcyon’s Pop-Up at Ladew!

We thought that we would show you some of the images from this weekend’s Ladew Topiary Garden Festival, which takes place on the first Saturday in May. Again this year, Halcyon House Antiques was a sponsor and also had a space in the tent.

Derby Day

In addition to being Ladew Garden Festival, Saturday is also Kentucky Derby Day. But don’t worry, there is plenty of time for you to do both things.

At Halcyon House, we can supply your equestrian decorating accessories.

From our selection of Henry Koehler paintings which are on display at the shop until the end of May,

to our pewter jockey helmet salt and pepper shakers.

From our antique equestrian cufflinks,

or links and studs,

to a classic silhouette of a jumper (sidesaddle, no less!)

we have a wide selection of equestrian accessories for you and your home!
