Two Talented Friends

My friend Ana from http://apetitecottage.blogspot.com/A Petite Cottage made a special white Lady Pamela pumpkin just for me. She has an Etsy shop you might like to visit. Please tell her Lady Pamela sent you.
I also have two talented sisters who like to make me things. This was a great thrift store find foot stool, my Dad painted the legs white and my younger sister made a slipcover for it that looks much nicer in my cottage. I positively squeeled when I saw it!
Unfortunately, she doesn't have a blog or an Etsy shop, but she is t-h-i-n-k-i-n-g about signing up for Etsy in the new year.
I absolutely love it! and her, too of course.

White Fall Decor 2011

A lovely teacup caddy gifted me by my friend BHS holds a collection of white teacups.
The tag and lavendar sachet was a gift from Tracey at
Mini white pumpkins fill my current favorite item from Sandi at http://acottagemuse.blogspot.com
I may have 'nagged' her a little about it, seeing it in some of her posts until she finally found one she could part with. I know it wasn't the polite thing to do, but part of me is really glad I did. Thank you Sandi.

My personal attempt at a 'Mum'-kin. That is where you take a fake Dollar store pumpkin and some fabric mums and jab them all over the pumpkin until they look like the old fashioned swimming caps back in the day. Know what I mean? These ones I coffee stained first.
This is the 35 year old maple finished china cabinet that Mom and Dad gave us for our wedding gift. DH was going to paint it white for me for my birthday in June, but Dad was bored after building the deck, so he volunteered. It gave DH more time to enjoy the summer on the deck instead of doing all the "Honey-Do" list things I usually have for him. We did alot of daytrips this past summer instead.
One poor wee pumpkin in the kitchen, that is all it got.
