Handmade Pumpkins - Softer Side of FALL


 








 








  Handmade Fabric & Lace Pumpkins

Fall has arrived. 
The mornings are crisp and the first leaves are falling from the trees.
I enjoy decorating and all the wonderful smells that go with the season.  Yum.....  I can already smell cinnamon and spice in the air.  
Over the years my style has evolved.  I  now prefer a softer.....   more shabby approach to fall decorating.  Creamy whites, peach instead of orange, ruffles and vintage lace.
I've spent many nights of late burning the midnight oil trying to finish the projects on my list.  LOL.  My list is never ending!
Sharing some of my fabric and lace pumpkins.

I made a bunch and several are available for purchase in my Etsy shop:

Have a wonderful week!
Elizabeth

How darling are THESE! Love the detail you are able to show - not easy I'm guess with all the white on white. Impressed as always.
