Pumpkins of all kinds!

Seen a few post lately about pumpkins.  
Bought a beautiful Heirloom pumpkin from a farmers market yesterday in Old Salem. 
 Love the velvet pumpkins with real stems that are on Pinterest.
Thought I would spend this great indian summer afternoon painting a pumpkin.
What a glorious day it has been!

Meet Winnie!

Winnie is casting her spells all over my art room!
I made Winnie the Witch almost 10 years ago.
This is an Eleanor Peace Bailey pattern.

I take her out every fall and let her add
 a bit of magic to the season!
She just makes me smile every time I look at her!

Paper preserves

Made a little trip into Charlotte yesterday....Pottery Barn, j.jill, and Paper Source all provided the eye candy I needed to churn the creative juices today!

Paper Source had this cute paper and matching tea towel. 
 I just feel in love with the canning jar theme!
Bought both!

 This started out as a junked jewelry box from GW.  
I pulled out all the fake velvet from the inside and oriental fabric padded panels from the lid tops. 
I spray painted it with flat black and then distressed it a little.
I have had it prepped for a while, just didn't know what I was going to do with it!
 I have lined some of the box with the canning jar paper.
It is now a stamp box for my fruit and veggie stamps!

 The little bottom drawer holds an ink pad, tags, scissors, a pen, and the newest stamp in my collection. Which I also got at Paper Source!
I don't can things...
I don't grow things...
But I sure would like to make tags for those jars if I did!
