My Pretty Pink Pumpkin

I ordered this sweet pumpkin from Aunt May's Cottage, and it arrived yesterday. It is absolutely beautiful!! It goes perfectly in my shabby pink and green dining room. If you haven't looked at Bertie's lovely things she makes, I encourage you to do so!
I know how much work goes into things like this; just look at the detail:

Thank you so much, Bertie; I just love it!! I'll be back to see what pretty Christmas goodies you have in store!

I'm still enjoying the touches of autumn in my home, though I am definitely thinking about Christmas and preparing things for it......

Here's a little autumn wreath I added to my magazine holder in the living room (it's actually a candle ring, but I decided it's a wreath! :)

Thank you for your kind comments on my tussie mussies; I enjoyed them!!
Hope you are having a lovely weekend!!

That pumpkin is just gorgeous! I will definitely check out the link.

I've used candle rings for other decorations besides ringing candles, too, and I think they look great as small wreaths.

I'm a Romantic Homes reader, too, though I haven't liked a lot of the changes in the last year or so.

How sweet and kind of you to feature an item from my humble little cottage in the Michigan woods. I'm so glad that little shabby pumpkin found a home with you!

I love your tussy mussies, too, and will be back to visit often!

Thank you!
