Bethany Lowe Halloween Trick or Treat Collection

Bethany Lowe Collectibles offers folk art and vintage inspired holiday decorations.  Bethany is an American folk artist, known for her ability to capture holiday and seasonal memories from times past.  
Her children at holidays series is a favorite collectible series for our customers.
This collection offers Christmas, Easter, Summer, Fall, and Halloween figures.

A season that is captured so well is Halloween.  Every fall Shelley B Home and Holiday offers the newest  figures from this fun to collect series. Boys and girls are dressed in vintage Halloween costumes and recreate fond memories like trick or treating, bobbing for apples, carving pumpkins and much more. Figures seem to be right from the pages of The Saturday Evening post.  

Here is a small display we created with a few trick or treaters and our BOO sign

Halloween figures from this video are shown below

Fall Decorated Christmas Tree

We couldn't wait for Christmas so we decorated our 7.5 foot evergreen Christmas tree with pumpkins, berries and fall foliage!

We added lanterns with flickering flame battery powered candles
and created a pumpkin and leaf ring around the base of the tree.

Below are items shown in this video and links to
purchase from our online store.

To add a cozy feeling we added two lanterns to the tree
the large lantern holds a flameless motion candle

we recommend the 7 inch size for the middle lantern in our
lantern set and a tea light for the small lantern

The lanterns are from our Metal Lantern Set of 3. The small and medium size lanterns are perfect size
to add to a tree.  The large size could be decorated with florals and ribbon topper made from 
stems used in the tree and placed on a mantel beside the tree.

Solar Twinkling Wine Bottle Lights

Decorate your garden or patio with beautiful twinkling lights.  Our solar powered wine bottle lights are easy to use.  Just add to any bottle, the solar powered lights are charged everyday by the sun and come to life at dusk every night.  The lights twinkle softly like summer fireflies.  The light set is attached to a bottle topper with a metal handle so you can display your bottle lights on a garden hook or tree. You can also sit bottles around your patio.  Not just for wine bottles, great for any decorative glass bottle.

Miniature Garden Idea ~ Garden Sofa

We found this blog post from Gypsy Garden 
and loved the creativity behind this great display. 
You can purchase miniature garden items found in this photo
 in our online store ~
Shelley B Home and Holiday
There is a link at the bottom of this article to 
some of the items used to create this 
vintage sofa mini garden display.

Yep! That’s real, live moss. Spritzed with water each night to keep it looking fresh. This couch-turned-mini-garden was definitely a showstopper. A not-so-mini miniature garden planted on a couch covered in moss is certainly not something you see everyday. When you’re putting together your own displays, keep an eye out for one-of-a-kind pieces like this couch. Items like this create interest and draw shoppers in to see what you have to offer.
This couch didn’t always have the appeal that it had in our showroom. Let’s just say it had been through a lot when we found it… but our merchandising team saw its potential and was able to use it to create something beautiful. With a fresh coat of paint, lots of moss and hot glue, and a little planting help from our friends at Batson’s, this couch took on a whole new life. You know what they say… one man’s trash is another man’s treasure!

miniature garden idea

The mini garden appears to be planted directly in the couch, but to give ourselves a little more flexibility and extend the life of our garden, we planted in plastic under-the-bed storage containers. This way, we can easily move the containers and use them in another display if necessary. You could use any size container to do something like this – when you’re finished planting, just hot-glue some moss onto the edges, and voilĂ !                         article credit:  Studio M Blog

Shelley B Home and Holiday offers the Gypsy Garden Vintage Camper, Bistro Patio Table and Chair Set, Mini Garden Bicycle, Mini Garden Birdhouse Stakes, and many new items added to the collection after this photo was taken.  Stop by our online store and take a look at all this collection offers, plus additional miniature garden figures.

Miniature Gardening

What are miniature gardens?

Miniature gardens are tiny to scale gardens created with dwarf plants and flowers, in flower pots or beds.  Figures and characters and other items are added to create tiny worlds from the gardener's imagination.

Small accessories like garden houses and doors, patio furniture, playing animals, vintage campers, tents, and canoes, sleeping fairy babies, tikki bars, gnome house doors and more are added among the plants. Small pebble walk ways and patio pads are also added to cause the eye to travel and wander through the tiny garden world.


The wide range of item themes and styles now available makes miniature gardening a great hobby for anyone to enjoy!

Miniature garden figures you can add to your mini landscapes can be fairy or gnome themed, but if woodland homes, secret garden doors and mystical creatures are not your cup of tea, our miniature gardening collection offers you many other options for playing in your flower pots and patio planters!

Many mini gardeners prefer to create tiny worlds using more everyday and main stream themes. Vintage campers, garden sheds, farms scenes, yoga frogs, dogs and rabbits, whimsical owls and much more.

Browse through just a few photos of miniature gardens and you will quickly see the fun to be had!
You can find many images on the internet, like our Miniature Gardening Pinterest board and Miniature Gardening at Shelley B Facebook page.

Take some time to enjoy our photos then use your imagination to design your own
favorite garden scene.

 Is it a formal manicured garden, a fun tikki bar patio with light strings,
a beach chair in the sand at the edge of the dune grass?

Mini gardening is a growing hobby. Its an easy, fun way to express your own creativity. Working
in small scale allows so many possibilities. You can enjoy bringing your garden landscape to life, without hours of back breaking garden work.

Create a tiny oasis in a patio container to cozy up your patio this summer. Miniature gardens can
be kept close to where you entertain making them a focal point to be enjoyed by your guests. They also make thoughtful and creative gifts for friends and family.

You can now buy Miniature Gardening Figures and Fairy Gardening Figures at Shelley B Home and Holiday. We have been gathering great accessories and photos to help our customers create their own miniature gardens. Items are listing now with many more to follow.

If you have created your own miniature garden we would love to see your photos. Please email with your photos and any information you would like to share.
