Not long ago, I found a blog named : 612 Riverside and was so taken by Theresa`s pumpkins made from woollen sweaters, and all kind of other materials.
And seing this little sweet ,in her Etsy shop, I ordered it - here it is on my little doll chair.

It is so beautiful, and I love the rose added.
Theresa was so very kind and added other goodies, like this tiny sweet paper pumpkin,the beautiful
LoveLove-bling bling

and inside this paperbag,there were also

sweet old and lovely things for me to create with.
Thankyou so very much Theresa, I love your pumpkin,and all the little gifts

Here I photographed it together with some pumpkins I made myself.
They are made in canvas,with curled tangles, and a bit of frost glitter.

Those 3 are more summerlike ,and made for dear friends.
Se my beautiful rose blooming for the second time.

And an abundance of vegetables from our garden. Carrots in white,yellow,orange,and dark red.
and beans also in dark black and green.
The wonderful flower is a Cafè au lait  Dahlia , so huge and very beautiful.

Can you believe it is already week-end again- I almost can`t .....
Tomorrow I will go to the almost last bootfair to see if there should be something exiting-I hope so .
What are you doing this week-end my dear friends?
I hope it will be a good one, for all and everyone.

Hugs and love,Dorthe

Theresa is a sweetheart and so talented! Your frosted pumpkins are fantastic, love the fabric images.

This weekend will be hot-hot-hot, hope to cool down by the pool. Hope there are better temperatures where you are.

Your rose bush blooming and the dahlia are so pretty. As for your abundance of different coloured vegetables, they are amazing.
Do hope that you find some wonderful treasures at the bootfair and have a lovely weekend.

Good morning, sweet friend! The pumpkin you bought from Theresa is lovely as well as the goodies she has sent you. I love the sweet pumpkins you made. One of them looks familiar to me :-).
It's wonderful that you have all those veggies in your garden and can cook with such fresh ingredients.
Have a great weekend and I wish you lots of luck for the flea market :-)!!!
Mange kys, knus og allerliebste Grüße

Hi Sweet Dorthe
I just love these gorgeous pumpkins especially the ones on the table at the bottom near the roses. What a gorgeous rendition. The whole idea is incredible. The little gifts in the bag new and old I am sure you will get so much pleasure from in creating.
By the way your vegies look very stunning too - those carrots - we call them heritage carrots here in all those colours as they are not readily available but taste just as wonderful.
Pop over sweetie and enter my giveaway and feel free to pop it on your sidebar. It really is a way of repaying all the love people have sent me recently over my dear Dad.
Hope you are touring again this morning!
Thinking of you with all my love and hugs,
Suzy xoxox

I love your pumpkins, bothe the ones you made and the one you received - so cute! I am glad it's time for pumpkins and leaves to make their annual comeback.
This weekend I am working again, but then I will have two days off and will stay in my sewing room the whole time - I might even sleep there!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend Dorthe,

I love your pumpkins!!..amazing work Dorothe:))

Carole said...

Theresa is a doll as well as very talented. So sweet of her to add a couple of extra lovelies.

Thank you also for your considerate comment. It really is shocking that things like this happen in the US...the land of freedom that we are known for. Our dirty little secret. I think it scared off my reg. readers who are used to me just showing the pretty stuff.

thanks again are a true friend!

It is so wonderful to discover your blog,Dorthe! I am so enjoying your beautiful artwork, it is absolutely many gorgeous art pieces to see. I landed on this one, pumpkins being the theme and so appropriate for this season and was overwhelmed when I saw how awesome they are. I see many mutual friends visiting to comment on your blog and I so look forward to returning as well. I am following you now, and hope you will stop by my blog as well if you have time. I will grab your blog button for my blog. I am just starting a new blog as well so will add it there as well. Be well. Kind regards. Hugs, Gayle (Canada)
