A great idea!!

I love pumpkins anytime... but especially at this wonderful time of the year.
I bought these pumpkins this morning at a darling store in our quaint little town. They are handmade by a local woman, who buys chenille bedspreads and dyes them. I love the different patterns in the chenille. They have an actual piece of a branch for the stem.
I tucked them on a red chair, but they may find a home in another room as I move my harvest decorations around.

PS For those of you who've sent email... My husband is doing better but still in the hospital.
He hasn't been given any info on when he'll be released.

Where did you tell us that your husband was in hospital? Can't find it - anyway, so sorry, and hope he's out soon and feeling better.

Those are adorable. I got a couple for my mother in law a few years ago . . .muted orange. Great idea. I had a chenille bedspread, but alas, I sold it in a yard sale before we moved! ; )

My love to Boyd!!

How cute! Are those stems real stems? And Boyd is in the hospital? I hope he's OK and will be home soon.

Oh, dear Joni, I didn't know about your husband. I'm so sorry and I hope he will be home again very very soon and on the way to recovery. Hugs and prayers for both of you.

Ooooh, hope hubby is better soon! Love the turkey fabric for pillowcases -- will have to keep an eye out for that. And my hubby and I totally agree with you about Jodie Foster -- we loved the Brave One -- wasn't she fabulous???
