Pumpkin Love

I just love pumpkins. They serve as an icon for my favorite season--Fall!

Yesterday I made these little wooden plaques and they turned out so darn cute. Instead of black for my pumpkin faces I decided to use the nutmeg brown. I guess for me, brown IS the NEW BLACK...ha!

So here theyare sitting in one of my open kitchen cabinets....

Then I moved them in front of my Three Witch Sisters......

Aren't they just the cutest? I made these fabulous old hags from a pattern about 7 years ago. They are one of my favorite Halloween decorations. Lots of work, but they have given me years of Halloween pleasure. I'm thinking I might look like the one on the right if I stopped coloring my hair? LOL.

A couple close-ups of the little guys in fron of my leaf bowl with some of the same colors. I distressed the edges of the plaques to add some character.

I don't go overboard on Halloween decorating (I can't say the same for Christmas...: ) BUT, I do love unique and fun accents like these to put in little nooks and crannies.
I think I'll list a couple sets on Etsy and see what happens...I better get busy.
Bye for now...



  1. Love your pumpkin plaques. How cute are they. They look great with the old hag witches, which I have always loved. Great job.
