Pumpkins, Piggies and Pinecones

 I guess when I said in the last post , that it was All the Fall I was doing,  I fibbed..  It wasnt intentional , truly it wasnt...
 Ya see, today is the yearly  Barbeque Festival in Lexington NC , so for months, there have been piggies of every size shape and color everywhere I shop..

  While choosing my new living room sofa :: which I will be showing as soon as my pillows are made, I spied a Mama Pig and her lil piglet and just had to have the set..
  The next day I was out getting the yard ready for the colder months ahead and picked up some pinecones..

All over blogland folks have been making sweater pumpkins.. well, I had a huge sweater that got its fringe all tangled when washed,  stuffing,  embroidery thread and twine..  I took having all those elements on hand as a sign that I should make use of the now , unwearable sweater and so I did..  In order for mine to be just a little different and more ME I added bows...       Around here if ya stand still too long, I will spray paint you or put a bow on ya  , sometimes Both.  giggle

 Thats how this vignette came together-- Pumkpins,, Piggies, Pinecones AND a Prayer Plant.  May as well put all my P's together..  I love how they look and I hope you will too..

 I want to Thank all those who have made these sweater style pumpkins and for all the amazing tutorials I found online..  Without your experience and expertise I wouldnt have know where to begin and end.. so Many Thanks to all you generous folks.... I hope I " did ya proud " as we say in the south..
