End of Summer!

We are quite astonished to realize that it’s already the end of August! We are going to take some time off after a busy summer, to rest up for the fall season. Endofsummer2016

We’re kicking it off with the Portobello Road Pop-Up Shop with our friend from Pigtown*Design, beginning on September 16th.

Happy Labor Day from all of us at Halcyon House. Have fun and stay safe!

Tea Time

As we begin planning for our Portobello Road Pop Up, Meg has created some designs for linen and cotton tea towels featuring English themes. Using illustrations, old line drawings, vintage and antique maps, she creates collages with whimsey and history.

Taking lines from the British anthem, this design is an homage to the Queen. EIIR

This antique scheme for a country garden is the centerpiece on this path

Locally, we have this amazing bird’s eye drawing of Baltimore from 1912, complete with many buildings you will recognize. The original drawing has been colorized for better clarity.smalltimore

What’s New?

Summer’s winding down and autumn’s on the way. The changing of the seasons leaves us a bit melancholy, but we’ll do what we can to buck up and deal with it!

All of our gorgeous melamine plates, bowls and dishes are on sale for 20% off!IMG_2036IMG_2038IMG_2048

These battery-operated tapers are the most perfect thing for those candelabras that are hard to reach, because you can turn these on and off with a remote control! And the “flame” even flickers.IMG_2154

The holidays are coming, and while it’s a bit early to be showing off our holiday goods, we couldn’t resist sharing these fun pinecones.IMG_2149
