Teaser Post....and Some New Etsy Goodies!


Yes, that is a big ol' pile of white punkins! I know what you're thinking. How many white pumpkins does one person need? Well, this person needs 287 of them apparently! That is a slight exaggeration, but not much. I actually have big plans for these babies. Something I've wanted to do for years, but never wanted to spend the money on. Michael's craft store to the rescue! They had their carvable pumpkins on super duper sale last week, and I took advantage of that! Can you guess what I will be doing with this lovely stack of white pumpkiny goodness? Well.......you'll just have to come back later this week to find out.
What a tease.



I spent the better part of this weekend working on some new items for my etsy shop. Since I started listing Christmas things in August, I though I better get some Halloween and Thanksgiving stuff in there too!


"BOO"
...so simple
...so cute


"EEK"
(this is my favorite one!)
....spiderwebs, swirlies, and ghosts



"BOO"
.....purple, orange, lime green, and black
......spiders, polka dots, and trick or treat



"GIVE THANKS"

.....a beautiful paisley in the gorgeous colors of fall
(you can click on the picture to enlarge it)





I just listed these today. If you'd like to get a head start on your holiday decorating or gifts, stop on by my shop. I only have a limited number of them and then they're gone!

Love your Halloween and Thanksgiving blocks, Amanda! I'm going to wait and see what you do with those pumpkins that I passed on!

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

I LOVE how you not only show us your (adorable!!!) product, but ways to display them. So much cuter than just a plain old picture.

Dying to know what you're gonna do to those pumpkins! I got a few last week too, but not 287 of them. That would be crazy.

So jealous of your pumpkins! I wanted to get some of the cream ones as well but they only had one size (and you know I need variety). Can't wait to see what you do with them.

I'm off to shop at my favorite Etsy shop! ;)

I'm going to guess that you'll be making a few topiaries for your porch??? Maybe? I can't wait to see your finished project!

I had my long list of things I 'need' ready for a trip to Michael's on Sat for their lowest prices of the season! Then... G-man ended up with bronchitis and the whole weekend was shot! I'm going to try to get there this weekend. I'm dying to have some white pumpkins around! Can't wait to see what you're up to and off to check out your Etsy store!

If only I decorated my house for Halloween!

Love the Decor! said...

Can't wait to see what you are doing with the pumpkins. My guess.. a pumpkin stack from large to small with letters on each to form a word. Looking forward to seeing the end result. :)

Adie said...

I saw some white pumpkins at TJ Maxx the other day and thought of you. Can't wait to see what you do!

Loving the blocks...if I wasn't in the middle of trying to move I would only be thinking of fall and Halloween decor at the moment. lol. I hope once we move I might get to hang something that says Halloween at our new home. I am going to have to buy some of the Give Thanks blocks...love those! Hugs to you friend...oh, I do have some white pumpkins, so much fun!

Can't wait to see your pumpkin project...

jen @ the inspiration studio said...

Hey Amanda! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! (I'm the girl with the purple bathroom!) I think you may have solved my shower curtain problem. I had considered moving the curtain rod up like you suggested, but then it was too short and that bugged me, so your suggestion to get some coordinating fabric for the bottom was genius! So simple! I'm off on the hunt now for some perfect fabric to match. Thanks so much for taking the time to help a girl out!

p.s. I am loving those white pumpkins, and you haven't even done anything with them yet! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Thanks for stopping by!
