It's not your mother's pumpkin patch!

Since a few of you have commented on the fabric pumpkin in my fall banner...


... I thought I'd repeat a post I did last year about these yummy shabby/cottage pumpkins made by the incredibly talented Ronda of Tempting Textiles (formerly Cherry Blossom Cottage).


I've gotten a variety of pumpkins from her over the years (as well as slipcovers for my office chairs!)...


... and I absolutely love decorating with them in the fall!


They look great alone, as the main attraction...


...or piled high, making a colorful cottage pumpkin patch!

I think Ronda picked the perfect name for her new shop - Tempting Textiles... These guys are definitely tempting!!!!

Here's a sampling of some of the fabric pumpkins Ronda has in her shop right now:


Oooh la la!!! Just look at these white pumpkins with marabou fur trim and button accents!

Or how about these soft cottage-green floral pumpkins...


All my favorite colors... blue, pink, green, and white!

This fabric is wild and colorful and I absolutely LOVE it!!! Be sure to check out all Ronda's other fabric pumpkins at Tempting Textiles... Click on SHOP, then HOLIDAY BLING, and then PUMPKINS. And while you're there, check out all of her other creations, too... slipcovers, Christmas decor, and vintage items!
Now I know I just finished a giveaway, but to celebrate Ronda's new shop I'm going to pick a name on October 7th and one of you will be able to choose a set of Ronda's pumpkins for your very own! Anyone who entered my previous Autumn Giveaway contest will automatically be entered, as well as those who commented on the pumpkin in my banner... And, of course, if you comment on this post your name will go into the hat... So good luck to everyone!
Check back Wednesday and I'll announce the winner!!
Happy October!
Donna

I love the pumkins! I had convinced myself to go and so me some and then I went to the link you posted and realized that I couldn't make them for what she's selling them for. Great price!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Please come back and visit soon.

Thanks for being such an inspiration! I hope my home is as pretty as yours some day!

Your fabric pumpkins are so adorable. I like them piled high.
The one with the marabou trim is quite classy.

Ooh, I love the soft cottage green ones and I can't wait to go over to Ronda's shop and have a little look at what else she has.

Claudia said...

I'm glad you posted about the pumpkins. I had Ronda's old site bookmarked and then a few weeks ago, it disappeared. I thought, oh no, she went out of business! But she didn't! Trust my friend Donna to have the scoop on her new site. Thanks! I love the pumpkins by the way!
