Friends of Poe

I love decorating with crows for Halloween, and I knew I had to fit these large birdcages into the shop somewhere, so I'm lucky they all came together for this display. There are also some references to Edgar Allan Poe -- the typewriters, the journals, and of course the ravens.
The black and white work so well together.

These old pillars are perfect for perching.
The sign is slightly hidden: It reads "Support Your Local Poet"

They're so simple, but these white branches have such a presence.
They're definitely one of my favorites in the shop right now.

  1. The Blue Pear was inspiring for a Edgar Allen Poe like All Hallows Eve Celebration! The details play out the scene so well. Shopkeeper has such an eye for the all important detail to encompass the shoppe in the entire setting. We look forward to our visit today to see what he will take us too for the Christmas Holiday!!! By the way we of course couldn't resist purchasing quite a few items.
