Late Summer Romance

Tooling along on the way to dinner the other night, we passed an antique mall having a parking lot sale. Since my truck has some sort of unnatural magnetic pull to these places, I was forced to visit the sale. While wandering, some delicate old rolls of lace seduced me into bringing them home and rearranging my entire mantle around them!

I don't know HOW I could be so gullible! They whispered words like fortuitous & necessary. Bated-breath, warm like a late Summer breeze... Seducing me in the parking lot...
They reminded about the pumpkins... Sweet handmade white pumkins... and how the unfurled rolls could befriend the pumpkins... If I'd let them. Wicked Temptresses!


  1. My first impression was, "What? Those pumpkins are handmade?" I looked again and could see that, yes, they are handmade. And ... aren't they super! Love the lace too, there's no way you could have left it behind. I'm sure the pumpkins and lace will live sublimely together.


  2. Lace is a weakness of mine. I have boxes of it and some day I'll find a great way to use it! Those pumpkins are beautiful, are they paper mache? Is there a tutorial?

  3. Beautiful lace.....I would have been tempted too! Love the pumpkins!

  4. Good morning, The pumpkins are wonderful! I'll be at the Coburg show with Martha this Sunday - I hope she brings plenty as they are not going to last! The vintage lace is gorgeous - I love the neutral colors mixed together. Sue
