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.

Harvesting Pumpkins And A Scarecrow Too

We still have temperatures in the 100's and will until sometime around the end of next month. It's hard to wrap your head around fall when you are still in shorts and a tee shirt! That being said, I can't wait for the cooler temps and all the rich, fall colors autumn brings.
Each year I make these sweet 4" pumpkins to sell and also to put at each place setting of my Thanksgiving Day table. Not only do they brighten the table up and bring in lots of holiday color, they are also a lovely gift for my guests.
Pretty fall fabrics and lots of goodies at the top, each pumpkin is a little different from the next. The pretty leaf dish behind comes with the pumpkins I sell, I don't give these away, but rather, I use them on the table with nuts, dried fruits etc.
Some pumpkins have mini acorns and squashes, along with bead work like the one above. All have a piece of cinnamon stick for a stem.
Of course what would fall be without a scarecrow?? This little guy has been made into a holiday tassel. I love the Halloween ribbons and trims.
How could us girls resist such a cute face?! HA! All this and more can be found on my website, SOMEPLACE IN THYME. Pumpkins would be perfect for teachers gifts and for your holiday hostess gifts. Who wouldn't love a sweet tassel to display in their home.
Later this month, I will be having a pumpkin give a way, so please come back and check it all out.

I love your pumpkins and scarecrow. If the next two months go as fast as this one did, it will be halloween before we are ready. Our temperature has turned a little cooler, but we are having storms tonight so far they have been to the north of us. You have a wonderful day. Your Missouri Friend

Tassels...I love them...I love the fall. Planning a little getaway to see our youngest daughters honey play college football in October. He goes to Western State College in Gunnison where it has been in the high 60s already! We are going to Durango! It is so pretty there too. Near the San Juan Nat'l Forest and near Telluride where all the richy rich folks like Oprah hangout! You got me in the mood for fall along with my win of Pumpkinhead over at Tam's place! Crunchy apples, golden leaves, ah...Anne

How fun! I came for Pink Saturday fun (VERY cute faux Autumn pumpkin decorations) and thoroughly enjoyed this post as well. What gorgeous pumpkin centerpieces! I'm so with you - can't WAIT for fall foliage, activities, and more. :)
