i'm enchanted with cinderella pumpkins
i adore their shape
and their color
the heirloom blue jarrahdale pumpkin squash
is grayish-blue in skin color
they were my inspiration for a small collection of velvet pumpkins
and the sea...
this is the "fairytale tag" i will use to attach to each special pumpkin
i hand dyed silk velvet in shades of the sea
along with silk ribbons and lace...
then i created a delightful collection of pumpkins...
some have pumpkin stems...
i've used driftwood stems
i thought it appropriate for sea pumpkins:)
each one smells of lavender
as i have added dried lavender buds to each and every one of them
and i adore their unique shapes
no two are the same...
i will be listing them in my etsy shop
for those that would like a pumpkin fairytale
inspired by the sea
i would describe them as "mermaid couture decor"
of what a carriage might look like
if the fairy god-mother waved her magic wand at one of these...
