~ The Great Pumpkin Collector ~

It's a beautiful overcast Fall day here ...I brought back a huge pile of pumpkins and gourds from my trip to VA...They are all arranged now in bowls and on the mantel...I love Fall!! I also found this wonderful glass candy dish(mantel) at an antiques shop in VA...I think the guy called it amethyst's a beautiful solid black...He had a table set up in his shop that looked like Martha Stewart had just visited...I wish I could have picked out a couple more pieces...however, I was good...but I have been secretly devising a way to get another piece on my mantel since then...


Tomorrow(24th) happens to be my birthday...and I have already asked my mama to go back to the shop and pick up another piece for me...I have a feeling that she will just consider it a birthday gift...waaa-haaa-haaa!! .....Happy Birthday to me!!


I can't believe that it's almost time to switch gears and start Winter and Christmas goodies...The calendar may say Fall...but in this business, you have to plan ahead...for me it means, "Start the Santas!!"... I have some great ideas and can't wait to get them cut out and sewn!! Check Back Often...they're a coming!

Take Care,

You know, Tina dear - it's a very thin line between "pumpkin collector" and "pumpkin hoarder" - trust the words of one of the latter! ;o) Your look awesome with your displays....And wishing you the happiest of birthdays! Hope you get to spend it doing what, and with those, you love best....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
