Four Things We Love for the Fall Season
Home editor Jessica Sinichak finds the local gems you’ll be obsessing over.
Spice and Everything Nice
Forget the Starbucks PSL (actually don’t — they’re delicious) and spice up your home throughout fall and Thanksgiving instead with these wood and mesh pumpkins from Splurge in Fox Chapel. The neutral pumpkins, which come in three sizes, are sure to fit any decor scheme.
Pumpkins starting at $59.95

Take It to the Hoop
Because we could all use more of it in 2020, consider adding the cheerful, rainbow-hued “Whole Lotta Love” embroidery hoop, sold at House15143 in Sewickley, to your gallery wall — and then keep your fingers crossed for positive vibes in 2021.
Embroidery hoop, $54

Bone to Pick
Make no bones about it, the Geometric Skull Vessel by Beaver-based Cord + Iron will give your tabletop decor some edge for Halloween — or any time of the year, really. Each skull, which comes in a variety of hues (we particularly love the on-trend rust shade), is cast from layers of colored concrete and hand-polished to a luxuriously smooth finish.
Geometric Skull Vessel, $19.99
