Blissful Whites Wednesday!!

Happy Blissful Whites Wednesday!

Thanks so much for your patience during this busy shop time and the beginning of the home school year with my daughter!!
Sure appreciate it!

This week's feature is the lovely Donna,
of My Shabby Chateau!  Donna made over
a fall wreath with some spray paint and it looks amazing!  So shabby!!

Love the vintage music flowers, too!

I have a fall wreath that could use a face
lift like this, do you?

Thanks for linking up all your beautiful whites!  Hope the rest of your week is wonderful!!

My First Wreath of the Season!

Happeee Monday!!!

So glad to have a new week to look forward to!!

I finally made a little bit of time between making pumpkins to finish this wreath!  I may still tweak it a bit, but for the most part I am very pleased with it.

This is the first wreath I have created to sell!  All the dozens of others I have made have been gifts, or for my own home.

What do you think, friends?
It will be in the shop soon!

I haven't ever made any to sell, so I would love some feedback.  
Be kind, of course!! 

I am working hard on making the most of each
day I am blessed to live here on planet earth!

Life is too short to take for granted!

Make your day a great day, and don't be stingy
with your smiles, hugs, love and encouragement!!

Popcorn Chenille! Too Much Fun!

I got in some awesome vintage chenille from another Etsy shop owner that is just so scrumptious!!

Her name is Deb, and I highly recommend her shop to you!!
{I received NO compensation for saying that!}  It's just the truth!!

Deb's shop is Craftscraftydeb, and if you love vintage chenille, you will love her store.  Deb is a seamstress, too,and makes beautiful
quilts, crib bumpers, etc...

She put together an amazing array of chenille for me, and I am having so much fun creating with it!

Her are some pumpkins made with white popcorn chenille!

I also made these little "Fiesta" cuties, which are a total departure from the color palette I normally create within!!

They are a pretty melon color that just captivated me!  These are way cuter in person, too...funny how I sometimes just can't capture
their look in my photos!

This next one shows the fun of the detail a little better!


Hope you all are enjoying a wonderful weekend!
It's almost Labor Day!  I can't even believe it!!

OH..almost forgot to tell you!
There is a Fabulous Fall Giveaway
coming soon here on Timewashed!!
Stay tuned!!

Hugs to you!!

For the Love....and Pink Pumpkins??

I so adore vintage textiles of all kinds, but
when I got my hot little hands on this fabulous pale aqua chenille, I was in love!  I really struggled with whether or not to use it for pumpkins.

I chose to make pumpkins, and am in love with them, too!

These little beauties are already spoken for
but I just got a large stack
of wonderful chenille, and will be making
lots more in different colors and patterns!

Love this with the petite real matchstick starfish, and driftwood stem!

I purchased this awesome pale aqua and several other lovely pieces of vintage chenille
from a wonderful Etsy seller named Barbara.  Her shop is called Chenille Bliss, and she offers such delightful, vintage textiles.

Barbara is also just a dream to do business with! I hope you'll go check out her awesome offerings!!

I told my customer who commissioned
these little cuties that I would post
them here!  What do you think, Teresa?

Lots of orders to get finished, and lots of
new pumpkins to make! Woohoo!!

Have a lovely week friends!
Remember to smile and choose JOY!!

Happy Wednesday!

Hope your week is going well so far!!
It's a beautiful morning here in sunny central Florida! Everything is blue and green and just so lovely! I think I may have to go for a little bike ride, and
take it all in!

I truly apologize for not being able to get around and visit all of the wonderful links each week! With keeping a grandy for full days, and an amazing amount of pumpkin sales
in my shop, {thank You, Lord!!} I am barely keeping up!  But it is all good.

I just miss you all! are some of the awesome links from last week!

Barb, of Treasures From the Heart, shared this fabulous outdoor bedroom vignette! Love what
happens to things when Barb gets a hold of them!

Rhonda, of A Little Bit French, shared some glimpses into a day in her lovely studio!

Rhonda is such a gifted artist, and has a fabulous Etsy shop!  You really should go check it out!

she has made!  

She make such pretty things!

Ok, now it's time to party!
Hope you have a delightful rest of the week!

Rustic and Wonderful!

Hi Friends!

Can I please tell you how very much I appreciate all of your lovely comments about my pumpkins???

You all ROCK!!!

Since we took quite a substantial pay cut
last year, having a successful shop has become
more of a must, rather than just something fun.  I know many of you can identify with that!  

A huge thank you, also, to all of you
who have become customers!  I am constantly thanking God for giving me just the absolute most lovely customers...and friends!!
You know who you are!!

I so love making different styles of pumpkins,
though I just can't bring myself to make many
in traditional colors. 

Here is my latest style...
rustic and elegant, don't you think?

 {this pumpkin is squattier than it appears!}
Gotta go come up with something for

Thank you again, for being wonderful...
for being Y-O-U!!!

Hugs and joy!
{share your joy!!}
