Pumpkin Girl comes out to PLAY!!!

It’s September….


time to bring out the FUN FALL stuff!

Pumpkin girl was made by All is Bright and she is ready to be OUT to delight!


I made another Scrapbook page using my new

My Memories Scrapbooking software!


Be sure to go HERE to enter the giveaway to win some of your own! Or use the discount code to buy it NOW!

Here’s something to get you started! My hubby scanned a page in this old book of poetry that you can save to use in your Fall craft projects. I used it as a background for my Scrapbook page.


I found this old book at a Methodist church sale last weekend for a quarter!


Don’t you love old books of poetry for children?


I’m joining these parties today….

Hi Miss Lavender Dreams,

I love Pumpkin Girl. We are decorating here too. Your scrap booking is beautiful, Mom isn't talented at all.

Oh, I have a contest going on over at my Blog. I sure hope that you think of a name for the kids corner. (o:

Happy Weekend

Thanks for sharing!

OH Pumpkin Girl is so cute and I love the old books!

Have a safe and Happy weekend.

Pumpkin Girl is FUN! I love her dress!

It's still very warm in Florida, it doesn't feel like fall at all. It will be some time still for my fall items to see the light of day. Maybe by the time I'm finished painting it will be a tad cooler ;)

I'm glad to see Pumpkin Girl come out to play....I'm so ready for fall!!! Love the children's poem book! You have quite a collection of children's books!!!

Donna said...

That is so cute! I adore old illustrations. I downloaded my software last night and can't figure out how to do just one page. I got a whole album to fill up, LOL! Maybe I have to delete all the other pages. I don't know. But I am befuzzled on how to use it and get started.

Creative Breathing said...

Yeah for September and the hope for cooler weather! What a wonderful book you have found. Don't you just love the blue cover? It is always a pleasure to visit here and see what is added or changed in your beautiful home. Have a lovely weekend! E

Hello name mate! I really envy your collection of old hardbound books. You are so lucky to have them. And those decors, I can't wait for Halloween to see them.

How cute is that! I also love great book finds. I loved reading as a kid, and I love it when I find an "old" book that I read as a child.

Ok it is September but I like to think it is summer still especially as it is still 27C at 10pm. I am not ready to think about fall, Halloween or witches, sorry my friend1

What a darling graphic/photo, Diane. Neer thought of doing this ... I need to develop beyond my niche ... of nothing.

Have a lovely holiday weekend.

I love vintage books....*especially* vintage books for 25 cents! I bet pumpkin girl likes vintage books, too!

Kaybe said...

I was just in a Cracker Barrel & they have their Xmas stuff up in full force. At least give us a chance to enjoy fall & pumpkin girl.

Cactus Country said...

I love Halloween decorating even more than Christmas...I start now too, and don't take anything down until I finally notice the clash between scarecrows and snowmen.

Ocean Breezes and Country Sneezes said...

Pumpkin girl is adorable! I'm looking forward to seeing my fall decorations!

Have a great weekend!

I can't believe it's already September! Where did this year go!?! Pumpkin Girl is very cute and a reminder of wonderful fall colors.
We have had such a cool summer here in Southern California so I'm not really ready for fall. Since September is our warmest month, I'm sure in 3 or 4 weeks I will be very happy to be thinking of a crisp fall day...but not yet. But I do understand why so many are eager for fall because the rest of the country sizzled this summer.
Have a great holiday weekend. And, I agree with you, I love old books.

I'm starting to see in the city where I live some things for Holloween out there and the 15th. of this month a big store that carries everything for Christmas opens it's doors too, can't wait to see what new!!
