Jar Ring Pumpkin

pcp 10986

Someone posted a picture a while back of a pumpkin made out of canning jar rings. I really like it so I thought I would try and make one. The hard part is coming up with the jar rings. A friend gave me these. She asked me if I was going to paint it orange or white but I told her I liked it just the way it was. I’m guessing she probably thinks I’m a little crazy as she doesn’t have the same appreciation for old rusty things like I do! Oh well, she’s probably already figured out I’m a little crazy by now anyway!

A Touch of Fall

Decided I would put some fall things out.  As I’ve said before I  just love fall and all the colors.  Here is an awesome pumpkin made by friend Linda Cochran from Sweet Annies.   You can click on the pictures to enlarge them.

 Here is Mud E. Bear made by Pamela at Our Pioneer Homestead.  I had to laugh at his shadow, it looks like Mickey Mouse with a very skinny neck!

 Mona from My Old Crow Primitives made the tomato on the left by the crow. I made the little pillow with the crow on it a long time ago.

That’s all I have out for now, maybe something else will sneak in before it’s all said and done.

I’ve still been spraying my Glade Maple Pumpkin around everywhere! I went and bought me some more, gotta keep stocked up!

The Butternut House

Bonanomi - 1008 HighlandWEB

I guess there was an Old Homes Tour in Lexington, Missouri  September 8th & 9th and  “The Butternut House” which is home to Maggie Bonanomi, was on the tour.  That would have been so much fun!  I love home tours!

“Judyquilts” left me a comment that she was able to take the tour, Judy, if your reading this….I’m so envious!  I have always loved the pictures of Maggie’s home beginning with her 1st book and I bet it’s really beautiful to see it in person!
