Life is Full of Surprises!!


Sometimes life is just so much fun!!

I have a sweet blog friend named Kathy,
over at Creative Home Expressions,
who I first met as a customer at my shop last year.

Today she surprised me by
telling me she was featuring
the heirloom  pumpkins she just
purchased from me
in her blog post today!

What a J-O-Y!!!

I LOVE seeing what people do with my creations!
It just makes the circle complete, you know?

Here is a little peek...

Kathy is a very gifted interior decorator and
just as sweet and generous as she is talented!

Hope you'll pop over and take a look and meet her!

Thanks again, Kathy!

And to top that off, I was recently contacted by
two retail stores who would like to carry some of the items
I have created for my Prelude to Fall Collection!!

Pinch me, please...what a delight to be asked!!!

Hopefully they will both work out and I can
make that announcement to you soon!
Who of them may be in your area!!

Here is my newest set of pumpkins!
A little shabby and tattered, with a sweet inspirational sentiment!
Now available in the shop!!

Please know that I do make custom pumpkins!

I have a couple of orders I am working on,
and would love to make some for you!!

You can email me at
or convo me on Etsy, and we'll make it happen!!

I will be listing more heirloom pumpkins at the end of the week!

Have a lovely week,
and be sure to savor all the surprises
that come your way!!

What sweet little pumpkins. I love these. I don't really like orange for fall in home decorating. These are so sweet. I can hardly believe that fall is coming. It seems as the summer just started.


Karen said...

Becky, how exciting for you! I'm so happy for you that a store is putting in your adorable pumpkins. Before I started on etsy I sold my jewelry in a boutique. It is so much fun. I'll be looking for your heirloom pumpkins in your shop. :)

You made those, Becky? Wow, they're stunningly beautiful!! Such a creative, talented, gifted gal you are. (Though, of course, I've known that for years, since I've been the lucky recipient of many of your wonderful creations in years past. Do yo remember that sunflower swag you made for me? It hangs in my kitchen...always reminds me of you.)

Great news about the stores wanting to carry your merchandise. I'm so excited for you.

Adorable! I'm seeing so many inspiring fabric Pumpkins in the Land Of Blog... it really is getting me into an Autumn vibe even though the temps are still in excess of 110 degrees around here! *winks*
