~ Have You Ever Heard Of... ~

Have you ever heard of Pumpkin Yellowware???...Oh my word!...I hadn't until recently while browsing the internet so I proceeded to find a piece at a decent price...actually two pieces, the second bowl is enroute LOL...but isn't it a lovely shade?...especially for this time of year, what a joy!

I also wanted to share with you this fabulous Pumpkin Folk Doll I purchased from my friend Karen...made from a T.F.C. Folk Art pattern, her workmanship is second to none!...he arrived in the mail on Saturday, isn't he fabulous?...I have him sitting atop a stack of small benches next to the lovely pumpkin she made for me as a gift that I posted about last time:

Lastly, I wanted to share a Random Act of Kindness that I had bestowed upon me the other day...I made an ebay purchase from one of my favorite sellers, Natalie of Country Farm Simples, her pictures are the absolute best!...she has a way of putting things together like no other and it is always such an inspiration!...I purchased this sweet ditty bag she made from olde calico in a lovely shade of bittersweet, it is lovely!
...and inside the box was a gift that completely blew me away!...a month or two ago I had sent her a message asking about a pair of dolls she had in one of her gorgeous pictures (you know me and my love for primitive dolls) these little dolls just struck me and I asked if she knew who made them...I hadn't heard back from her but guess what was in with my purchase?...yep!...one of the little dolls!!!!!!!!!!!...can you believe it??...wasn't that just the sweetest thing to do?...I have her sitting here with the gathering on the fireplace hearth:
...aint she cute?...Thank You again Nat!!!!!!!

Well that's gonna do it for this time...have a wonderful week!

Am delighted that you like your new Pumpkin Folk doll Janet and doesn't he look great sat on your stools with your pumpkin gift! I do like those shaped pumpkins and have made a few of them for here at home.
