I might always be late to the trend
that has no effect on my obsession with it!
This year it is the
probably what started it all for us...
Oh, don't get me wrong, I wanted one
hundred the first time I ever laid eyes on them
but I am also on the cheap side and wasn't willing to pay that much money for them
so I decided to wait until Hobby Lobby carried them
which is one year before Wal-Mart
and this year? neither!
it was going to be up to me to figure this thing out because
unlike some trends
they are so beautiful they will never go away
and I don't care who has them as long as I do!
My first realization...it's all about the fabric
so I ordered some odd colors in fat quarters, robbed my toiletries of dental floss and bought some cheap rice at the grocery store
I knew I was on to something obsessive because if I know anybody I know me
and I love to blend my loves....peacock velvet meet my pumpkin pattern
I happen to have a teeny pumpkin patch so I robbed the stems and then realized I would be needing more....hello eBay!
first came the experiment with some leftover fabric
I know...you like them too don't you?
basking in the morning sun
what I really wanted initially was some for my pink dining/music room
PINK VELVET PUMPKINS
I just kept having enough left over fabric to make just one more little one
and gosh before I knew it....I had oodles of pink velvet pumpkins
to go with
this gorgeoso blown glass beauty
and then I saw the shades of purples and lavenders
that go so nicely with my paisley tablecloth
wondering if I should fill my copper pot with them?
and then I just about forgot that moment I ordered another fat quarter in midnight blue and she had back surgery and didn't ship in time so she sent me two to be nice and well....
maybe a few blue ones here?
and wouldn't ya know it? Market Street in Amarillo
and so I bought some in
and I'm embarrassed to show you the lime green ones!
but they look lovely with these!
and let's not forget silver...yes...silver and pumpkins are two pumps in a kin patch for sure
I think silver silk velvet would be gaudy don't you?
