Pumpkins and Pinks

PhotobucketToday at Beverly's Pink Saturday, we're all showing off our pumpkins!  I have a couple pumpkins around the house but nothing too spectacular so I thought I'd start by showing you a couple of fabric pumpkins I've got in my Etsy shop for sale!
This cute Holly Hobbie pumpkin is made from a foam pumpkin covered with fabric and features her "Blue Girl" portrait.  It's 7x5 and, unlike any pumpkin from the produce aisle, it will keep indefinitely!
Here's a second one with lace and blue flowers instead.  Both are $12 with FREE US shipping!
I've also been busy recently stocking my booth at Strutt Your Stuff, a friend's gift shop here in town.  Yesterday I made this cute Jane Austen silhouette mirror.  My daughter, Lynzie, drew the silhouette template for me on a piece of paper and then I just glued it to the mirror, sprayed white paint around it, painted the frame black, and added some antique jewelry and vintage faux pearls.  It's so cute, I'm half hoping it doesn't sell!
My great-grandmother left us lots and lots of costume jewelery.  I know she'd be happy that I'm finding fun and crafty ways to use some of it!
A good BookCrossing friend sent me some gorgeous fabrics so I made a ruffled book bag.  I love this!  I think I'll make a few more for my Etsy shop...and maybe one for me too!
I also used some of the fabric and matching ribbons/buttons for a little pin cushion.  I used one of the four Depression glass sherbet cups I have sitting around. 
Have you been up to anything fun and crafty lately?  Tell me about it or link up your homemaking/crafty posts below for Homemaking LinkUp Weekend.

Blessings to all of you and thanks so much for stopping by---have a lovely weekend!
