Fall harvest velvet pumpkins.....

Thursday, November 4, 2010

Check out these fantastic velvet pumpkins we found during our trip to Minneapolis last month. They are handmade and have dried natural pumpkin vine stems. Each one is unique and will last for years. Some of the velvets used have a beautiful luminous depth to them that can really only be seen in person. They are so lovely!

These wonderful pumpkins are perfect not only for your Halloween decor, but they'll also make a festive addition to your Thanksgiving table later this month.

These were made by creative genius Daria Knowles and her line is called Hot Skwash.
Here is her website if you'd like to know more about her!

(You can find them here on Chicago's northshore in Lake Forest at Romancing The Home.)
Hurry if you want a few for yourself --- they sell out quickly!
