On a Pumpkin Roll

Hi Friends~
The last week has been all about fall pumpkins
and I know many of you are beginning to pull out your fall decor
and transform your spaces with a touch of autumn.

I love to decorate for fall and 
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.


They were all fun to create and the added tags make them extra special.

These little sweeties are created using  old sweaters 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 this 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 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 shabby rose pumpkin with heart grapevine wreath and roses.

White cork pumpkin.
I found a bag of corks at Kirkland's and it was filled with enough to make several pumpkins
and a few Christmas trees too.



and before I go, here's another little set of cork pumpkins
decorating my kitchen,

Many of these post pumpkins found new homes to decorate already but 
I still have plenty filling the shelves in my shop

Have a great week and THINK FALL!!

See you next time.

You do beautiful work! xo Deborah

You have been a busy bee... Love all your pumpkins. I hope to get back to blogging soon. My brother was in a bad accident up on Rocky Top Mt. In Tennessee last weekend and is still in the hospital. We are trying to get him back here in Ohio. Hoping all the paper work is done and that he will be back here tomorrow.

Love every single pumpkin and decorating this time of year, but the tags have my heart. Oh my do those bring back special memories. I've been thinking of making them again. How I loved sending them to women around the world. Thank you for always inspiring, Celeste.
Have a beautiful weekend.

Oh my goodness I don't know why I am not getting updates of your blog, I just signed up for email updates but I thought that is what I did last time.
I so enjoyed looking through your wonderful assortment of pumpkins, I have not had time to get out my fall decorations yet, maybe if I pulled myself away from the computer :)
I love the idea of having a two sided wood pumpkin so you can use it for halloween and then straight through thanksgiving. Your painted shabby chic ones are gorgeous and your painting is wonderful!

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh, you have been a busy bee making all these lovelies for your shop. I really like the white sweater pumpkins, they are so cute. The shabby rose pumpkin with the grapevine is pretty also. But my favorite is the orange pumpkin with the flying witch. I gotta have my orange pumpkins this time of year. :) What splendid creations you have made, Celestina.

love, ~Sheri
