🍂Happy Autumn!🍂

 

Happy first day of autumn guys!
This year I wanted my autumnal decorations to be a bit different, and since I've been yearning to make fabric (velvet) pumpkins for ages, I came up with these shabby chic beauties. And I get all starry-eyed whenever I look at them :)

For these I used vintage fabric and tulle, crochet ribbons and lace, crochet flowers, old buttons and pieces of dismantled brooches and earrings. And they make a striking difference to my book-stand top I use to decorate depending on the season.  

Are you a fan of fabric pumpkins?

Well, I am most certainly a fan of your fabric pumpkins, Maya. I am a wee bit starry-eyed, too, when I look at your pretties. Love all the snippets of pretties you used to fashion these. Happy Autumn to you! Though, I must say I am so happy it's Spring, here. =)

I am so happy with them Kim. They will also serve as photo props and I itch to try them in that role too :)

They are so chic! They remind me of the velvet flappy dresses and hats of the 1920s. ♥
