If I had to choose a favorite decoration out of all my fall things, I'd have to say this is the one! I love that a sweet, little ol' German lady made this for a local shop. She happened to be there dropping more stitcheries off the day I had this in my hand and was headed up to the counter. She even signed the back with her name, Lydia. I love that she told me she bought old frames at Goodwill, painted them, and used them for her little stitcheries. So sweet! The 'five' little pumpkins also has special meaning to me because there are five members in our little family. So every time I pull this out in the fall, I can't help but smile when I remember Lydia and the little bit of history behind this!
Fall has been ushered in with a vengeance here in the Pacific Northwest! Almost feels like winter... I hope you're enjoying the change in weather as much as I am!
*the spellchecker just told me stitcheries isn't a word. well, if it isn't, it's still in "my" dictionary!
