Inspired by... pumpkins
Happy Wednesday, everyone!
Yes, like everyone else in blog land, I've started working on my fall decor. I don't do Halloween, but I do like to display the bounty of the harvest! And visual reminders of gratitude, thanksgiving and praise. I don't stack hay bails and sheaves of wheat on my front porch (there's an idea!) but pumpkins and gourds of every shape, color and size usually make an appearance.
I don't know the original source for this picture. (I pretty much love everything about it!) I found it on Debra's blog, Common Ground. It was her inspiration for last year's fall display. Figures, I'm usually about a year late on everything [smile]. If you like vintage, she has some fun stuff going on for Fall, I encourage you to check out her blog.
Anyway, back to pumpkins!
I decided to start on the inside this year and since I've been on a bit of a sewing kick, I was tickled when I found a pattern for...
I was happy with the way these turned out and really, really love the fabric. But then I saw Martha's pumpkins – and really got excited!!
Although I am (really) trying to think more outside the box, I am a purist at heart and these, well, they LOOK more like pumpkins! Plus, I'm partial to purple and fun colors like that! Hey, if Martha can make a purple pumpkin...
Seriously, is there a color that purple doesn't complement? I think I'll have a little orange with my purple this year!
What's your favorite fall color?
