Since opening my own Etsy shop in January, I've sold many baskets, but more importantly I've found some new friends on Etsy. These friends are fellow Etsy artisans who create wonderful items that I just can't seem to live without.
This adorable little pumpkin head box is my latest acquisition. I purchased him from Susan at
I had admired him for a couple of days, saw that he had a few other admirers and decided I just couldn't wait any longer to purchase him.
I ordered him mid week and he arrived yesterday. Too bad for me since I was gone from about 6:30 am until 7:30 pm last night. I knew he was sitting in the box just begging to get out!
He arrived all wrapped up in tissue paper - it made me feel like I was getting a present.
Inside the box is a cute little pumpkin nest! Susan didn't mention this part in her Etsy listing. There are 2 little cinnamon pumpkins and a cute Halloween tag all snug in an excelsior nest.
Susan's attention to detail is perfectly prim. My photos don't do justice to how perfect this little set is. The box is grained over 2 coats of contrasting paint. The inside of the box is painted as well. The pumpkin is so cute - antique buttons for eyes, a twig stem and the little leaf that is whip-stitched on.
Graby knew that the tissue paper was really for him, he's already made off with the ribbon Susan tied it with.
I can't wait to see what other wonderful creations Susan makes for Thanksgiving? Christmas? Winter? Susan.......?
Thank you Susan!
Have you tried these new M & M's? YUM!!! White chocolate candy corn flavor. Our daughter came home with 2 bags of these and they are nearly gone.
We have 2 orchestra concerts - the high school is this afternoon - our daughter, and tomorrow night the boy's have theirs for junior high. Can't wait to hear them - our youngest is just starting and of course has to be different than his siblings - no violin for him. He chose to play the bass. There's always one in the crowd isn't there? He had to pick the largest instrument possible - the bass hardly fits in my van!
Have a great week. ~Ann
