Elegant Autumn Pumpkins

How about some elegance this Halloween and Fall?  I never decorated much for Halloween and Fall because I just didn't like much of the décor or the black and orange color scheme.  So....I had to make my own decorations!  What else!  Pretty and elegant -- that's what I like to create --  here are some of the pretty pumpkins I've been making for several months.  I start with a vintage beaded gown, some dried pumpkin stems, some vintage jewelry, and here is what I come up with...

Isn't the turquoise pretty?  But I couldn't stop there....

And if that's not enough....I had to do some velvet ones as well...

And last, but not least, how about some ever classic black and white?

I've been having lots of fun...every time I make a new one, my daughter gasps with delight!  We are ready for Halloween and Autumn!
Happy Creating!
