Pretty Pumpkins

Remember these? I made them last year for a give away. I also sold quite a few on my web site and gave some away as gifts to my customers when they bought something from me. They were so much fun to create.

So, I decided to do a few for eBay this year. I've done these a little different as they are not the stuffed kind, but a more solid one that will hold its shape year after year. I've made several of these over the years that I still use in my Fall decorating as they are so different and unusual.

Placed with other fall items, these add a little romance to an otherwise quite dark season.

I know there are those of you that love the oranges, rusts, yellows and browns of this coming season, but I much prefer the burgandy, ivory, dusty rose and sage greens. Colors with just a hint of blue in them seem a little more soothing to me than all the colors with yellows in them this time of year.

How about you? Are you a cool color person or a hot color one? Along about February or March I'm ready for the warmer colors, though. I just love a pale yellow in the spring!!

Hi Bertie,

Love those little pumpkins! They are so very cute! I am so torn between color palettes. I have always loved the traditional fall colors, but I so love the pinks blues and greens. Can't decide.

Have a wonderful day,
