Been on a Pumpkin Roll

Hi Friends~
Hope you enjoyed a nice long weekend.

I've been having so much fun designing pumpkins this season
 to fill the shelves  of my shop.

Here are a just a few creations.
Starting with some wood block designs.

My talented guy cut some large blocks from wood
with added peg knobs for the stem.

I painted these with Waverly chalk paint in a pumpkin color
added dark wax, distress and embellishments.

These next few were created last year
but thought them worth sharing again.

I used Dollar Tree Pumpkins.

Added more accents to the top and glitter dots to the body of the pumpkin.

Lastly added a little tag to each and complete.
Easy, quick little project.

These little sweeties are created using an old sweater in ivory with real dried pumpkin stems.

This larger pumpkin was designed using flannel fabric and lace, jute and a dove charm.

Another sweater pumpkin with a flower added and created from a vintage pattern
lace and burlap stem. 

Here are a couple mini sweater set pumpkins also with real dried pumpkin stems.
Tied with lace ribbon and complete.

This little cutie is designed using a vintage spool of thread.

Jute for a stem with wire and burlap accent flowers and leaves complete the pumpkin.

Adding a little tag gives it a finish.

This pumpkin is a large style faux pumpkin hand painted with a flying witch silhouette
The design was adapted from 
The Graphics Fairy.com 

This Trick or Treat tag was also added and from The Graphics Fairy.

Lastly, I have sewn and designed lots of fabric styles this year and had so much fun.

Here are a few styles.

Notice the little paper bird sitting on the top of the ticking pumpkin.

I also designed the Farmers Market sign using the same chalk paint
by Waverly with dark wax and distress.

This little rose bud pumpkin can go right into Christmas.

Gingham checks in black with a little tag that says,
a wonderful Life.

I love to add these little wood tags.
This one says, embrace today!

And, I had to add a few pink for my shabby gals.

The pink wood tag says,
peace, hope and love!

Little furry fabric pumpkin with silk rose and leaves.

Some roses trailing on a ballet pink pumpkin.
Shabby and pink chic.

Ivory with grapevine wreath and roses.

Thanks for stopping by to visit.

Before I go, here is another little creation using wine corks.

I found a bag of these at Kirkland's and enough to make several pumpkins
and a few Christmas trees too.

See you next time.

Some of the above styles have found new homes, but I have a few more on the way.

Have a Happy September Day!

Good evening Celeste! I have such a hankering to start decorating with pumpkins, but I can't find them here yet! It's also too warm so summer is still on the brain but your creations are playful and ready to inspire! Enjoy every minute of painting, planning and fun!

Celestina~~ Each and every pumpkin you have created is just beautiful, and of course I would have to choose a pink one. :-)
Your pumpkin patch is filled with many different creations and all unique in their own special way.
You have been quite a busy gal!

Now that I have your etsy Shoppe on the special page that has been created on my blog, I can pop on over quite easily now to see all of your lovely items. :-) I must take a peek.

Blessings~~ Debbie

cynthia lee designs said...

Oh my....I love all of your pumpkins!! I'm looking forward to Fall and have been making some things for 2 upcoming Fall shows. It is helping me to keep busy after saying goodbye to my best friend of 20 years this passed weekend. I hope to be blogging again real soon.

Denise said...

they are all so awesome, just like you.

Creations By Cindy said...

WOW! You have a wonderful collection of pumpkins! I love them all. You amaze me girly! Happy Wednesday. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

Vickie @ Ranger 911 said...

Wow! I need to beef up my collection of pumpkins! I love the cream colored sweater pumpkins, Celeste! I think I have a sweater or 2 that would be better suited to a pumpkin than an outdated sweater to wear.

Did you know that you are a "noreply" blogger? I think it has to do with Google+ and maybe it can't be changed, but I just wanted to let you know.

Have a wonderful day!

Okio B Designs said...

Me too! Your fabric ones are just gorg!


Debbie-Dabble Blog and A Debbie-Dabble Christmas said...

Deborah Montgomery said...

These are so gorgeous, and so much fun! The three fabric pumpkins I ordered from you last fall have been out on display all year long. I love them! I may have to go have a peek at your shop ;)

Debbie said...

Thank you for leaving such kind words about the passing of my niece, Celestina. I don't have an email address for you anymore...so I am writing to you here.
Your sincerity touched my heart.
I am grateful for your compassion, and your loving kindness.
God Bless You sweet friend.

Stephanie said...

Dearest Celeste, how I love your pretty pumpkins! I have the one I purchased from you sitting on my dining room table and it looks oh-so-charming. I especially like the pink pumkpins, my friend - they are truly stunning!

You are incredibly gifted, Celeste. Thank you for sharing your talent with us. Love to you!

Rose said...

Very creative, but I LOVE the ones in the first couple of pics best of all. But then, I love orange and I love pumpkins.

Sherry @ Thrift My House said...

Pumpkin heaven! So many pretties! You have been busy busy! I've not had much time to be "creative" mostly doing "have to" projects. This makes me want to pull out my stash and get busy making something. Isn't it cool we can buy chalk paint easily now. I picked up some at Walmart. I picked up the dark wax too but have NO idea how or when to use it. Hope you had a great week and have a wonderful weekend friend!

Unknown said...

All of these ideas are SO cute! :)
