French Country Ticking and Toile Fabric Pumpkins

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Ticking and Toile PumpkinsToday I am sharing the tutorial for making the Ticking and Toile Fabric Pumpkins that showed you during our FRENCH COUNTRY FALL TOUR. I love being able to add a little frenchiness to my fall décor and these are the perfect touch! And best of all, they were really easy and cost almost nothing to make since I already had everything that I needed in my stash!

Big Changes at My House and a $100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway


Those of you who read my blog regularly know that big changes have been going on in my home over the last year. Until recently, my household consisted of my feline “staff members” and me. Let’s just say a busy day involved a nap in a sun puddle followed by tuna fish and a movie. (And that’s just me!) But now I am very proud to say that my daughter has decided to follow in my footsteps and go back to school to become a teacher!
To make this dream happen, she and my three grandsons ages 5, 6 and 16 have come to live with me. Needless to say, I am thrilled! But that also means that there is a lot more activity and lots more people in my home. And it’s not just family members. It’s all that comes with having two little guys, a teenager and their mom added to the mix. That means play dates and visits from friends of all ages!

$200 Fall Farmhouse Giveaway

My favorite season has arrived at last (at least in my mind) and what says fall along with pumpkins pies and colorful leaves more than farmhouse style? So I was excited when Heritage Lace was kind enough to provide some of the beautiful products from their Farmhouse Collection for me to give away to one of YOU, my wonderful readers, because I know that you are big fans of farmhouse style just like me! And... I love that they are all coordinated in beautiful fall jewel tones of green and red!
