This Month's Drawing

Well…..I think I’ve finally decided! A pumpkin sounds in order for the giveaway drawing on October 2nd. But, you know me; not just ANY pumpkin will do. This is a very special pumpkin, designed and hand made by me.

It features a lovely heavy weight bridal satin base with so much bling you will need sunglasses to look at it. Wrapping the eight grooves in the pumpkin is a beautiful pink sequin and beaded trim. Then, I made a soft pink lace with sequins into a leaf and added two other leaves made entirely of pink beads. Topping off this beauty is a pink rose with Lily of the Valley and pearl accents. It measures about 7 inches high and 22 ½ inches around.

Just look at this detail!! How would this look on your mantle or table?
