A little Bit About Me

Someplace in Thyme

I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

I started a tradition a couple years ago of placing one mini pumpkin at each place setting on my Thanksgiving Day table. I have to say it was so fun to see my guests go home with a little bit of me.
I love fall and altho I know many of you don't want summer to end, I am excited to jump into the pumpkin patch and get started. I look forward to the gorgeous colors and cooler weather. These make a sweet statement on a side table or shelf. I have also been known to give a set away as a hostess gift........even one would be great.

A touch of glitter on the leaves gives a little holiday spirit.

Each pumpkin measures just under 4" and has a cinnamon stitch for a stem.

If you would like to pick an early harvest, this set of minis can be found here.

Fall is my absolute fav season. The colors, temps..altho been cooler than norm here (70's) in Cincinnati...aromas, Halloween, Thanksgiving. Seems like there's one big party Sept thru Nov. Love your mini pumpkins. Plaid..so fall too..another thing I like about fall. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi, Char,
Yes, I am definitely ready for autumn. We have had record heat here in Texas and drought conditions. I love fall! Your pumpkins are so cute and can see them looking so nice on a Thanksgiving table. Have a good rest of the week. Vicki
