Our September Giveaway-Just in Time for Fall


Here in the Louisville area we had a brief snap of cool weather and for a moment, it felt like fall! It was so welcome after the 90 degree temps we've had all summer. Thinking of cooler weather ahead, it's a great time to think about decorating for fall. And we have just the giveaway for you!

This month we are featuring the shop of Wandering Whimsies with creations by Belinda Johnston.

Belinda has graciously donated a set of large handcrafted country pumpkins. They will be perfect for Autumn and Halloween decorating!


"This set of large fabric pumpkins will look wonderful nestled atop your cupboard or sideboard with leaves and grubby pillar candles! Or as a table centerpiece, or along your mantle. They are the perfect touch for your Autumn decorating!

Each pumpkin is sewn from warm and natural quilt batting, painted a shade of harvest orange, coffee stained and baked dry in the oven.

The leaves are sewn from a variety of green plaid or check fabric with layers of batting and then coffee stained. (Shown with green checks). A single leaf is added to each pumpkin, along with rusty wire tendrils and a wood stem cut from a tree branch.

Each pumpkin has been sprinkled along the top with German glass glitter
--- just like the dew on the pumpkins in the fields.

Each pumpkin is approximately 5 1/2 - 7 inches in diameter and is unique from any other in the set."


The value of this giveaway is $24.95.

Wow, there is a lot of detail that goes into creating these special pumpkins. Need a set of your own? Here are the ways to enter!

I love the pumpkins. Great for fall. But, my most favorite are the Raggedy Ann dolls. They remind me of my daughter when she was four and received a RA doll for Christmas. It was bigger than she was and she loved that doll like a sister. Kept it for years and years after she had outgrown and worn it out, she boxed it up and still kept it. Perhaps a giant primative RA doll would make some little girl's heart flutter.

Wandering Whimsies said...

Thanks for all the compliments and for the suggestions! :)

Siilenti - I'm hoping to have several different primitive things, like a pumpkin man and a raggedy scarecrow in the shop shortly. A skeleton would be great :) I'll look for a pattern.

Patricia - what a wonderful story! I've made several small raggedies for little girls in the past as requested by customers. I've never thought of a large child size one - it will be something for me to consider :)
