More Pumpkins!

I'm remiss on blog posts because I had a blow-out of a craft show -- blow-out in the amazing sense. So amazing that I have to cancel my appearance at a the Virginia Beach Thanksgiving Weekend show. There is just no way that I would be able to get through being sick (I am trying to recover from a cold? flu?), get another spinal tap (today), create enough inventory for a fund-raiser that I'm heavily invested in (The ALS Artisan Boutique in Annapolis, MD), and then a 3-day show in VA Beach. I've never, ever, sold so many things that all of my inventory was on the table tops, with nothing left underneath, and what was ON the table tops was sparse. Humbling, and amazing.

So once I get over this cold/flu/ick, I'll be working again, feverishly. But hopefully not feverish in the true sense.

In the meantime, I'll leave you to wander through another lovely pumpkin patch, this time thanks to another of my favorite bloggers, Shabby Scraps. I love her blog because I love all things old and interesting, but her post about her husband's growing GIANT pumpkins really caught my eye -- and then, what they DO with them!

Click here to read, but be sure to explore her entire blog!
