~~~Pumpkins Coming Your Way~~~

It was 117 degrees today, but knowing that fall is on the way, and getting very excited to say goodbye to this heat, I found myself creating pumpkins today.
These will appear on Someplace In Thyme by this weekend.

Cute acorns along with roses, mini pumpkins, berries and raffia can be found on the top.

I adore the colors of the fabric and the look of the tops. Perfect for table top or just about anywhere you would like some autumn color.

I found this beautiful fabric in the closet and can not believe I had not used all that I had. It has a tie dyed look and feel to it which I think is perfect for pumpkin making. I have not seen any since.

I used some natural pods in this one along with blooms, ribbons and raffia.

These three beautiful pumpkins will be the only large ones I will make this year.
I will have my popular mini pumpkins listed on my website this week.

I also think these would make great gifts too.
Be sure to check in often as I will be listing my tassels and they will come with free shipping.

Yep, cooler temps are on the way.

~~Like It Or Not~~It's On It's Way

It's so hard to think of the holidays when the temperature outside is 113 degrees during the day and never falls below 100 at night.
For the first time, I find myself ahead of the game and that makes me one very happy girl.
This is the last of 23 stockings. You heard me right, I created and finished 23 stockings so far this year.
Yes, I am a happy girl!!
I am participating in the holiday show in TN this fall. Many of my stockings and ornaments will be for sale in the Shabby Lane Shops booth. We were lucky to get two booths so hopefully we will have lots of room for all the goodies we will be selling. Shabby Lane Shops will also appear on T.V. how exciting will that be?
I used vintage crochet work and pearls over this gorgeous teacup fabric, one of my favorites.

Comes with a hand painted jingle bell at the toe and some pearls too. :)

Back by popular demand are my snow people. I will be adding them to my website the first of Sept. along with all the orther ornies you see here. If you can't wait until then, you may be able to still find a few at
Someplace In Thyme.

So cute mini mittens. These too will be returning.

I never dreamed when I made these pretty bells that they would be so popular. I sold out of them last year and plan on making many more for you this year. I do have the one above and another with pink and white roses, not yet listed, but for sale none the less.

I was playing around with this pretty strawberry sachet today, when I discovered how pretty she would be hanging from the Christmas tree. There is a ribbon loop which would make it the perfect ornie, or gift.
Be sure to visit often, as I will be listing these and more in my shop and in my etsy shop as well.

~~~Fall Tassels Are Here~~~

I have been very busy making my fall tassels and getting them loaded into my website, Someplace In Thyme and in my etsy shop.
This year I decided to do some sweet animals. This is a chippie tassels and I think he is adorable.

I can't resist this sweet face. I also added some fall leaves and acorns too.

A chippie on an ear of corn seems appropriate for autumn and your fall decor.

I also added some orange beads, leaves and an acorn or two.

Anything with a pumpkin spells fall for me.

If you are wondering where I buy most of my fringe, I get it from Nancy. Her shop linens and laurel carries just about anything you could want.

Maybe you would prefer a squirrel to a chippie.

If animals are not for you, no worries, I have pumpkins, Indian corn and scarecrows on my to do list. Please check back often. All items are a one of a kind.

~~~Gettin In The Grove~~~

It's 107 degrees today and I am ready for the Christmas tree!! Oh yes I am. I just can't help myself. I have said every year that I would start on my creations for my shop early, and every year I have failed, oops, messed up. : ) But, not this year. This year I am ahead of the game and so proud of myself.

I made two of my stockings using a natural canvas. If you have been following me or reading this blog, you know how much I love this fabric. I bought some french images from Debbi of Marionberry Cottage and just love the way they look with cream lace, vintage lace and muslin.

Such a pretty color and this lace is cream and is vintage. I don't remember where I purchased it, but I wish I had more.......

And what could be cuter than a sweet silver tone Eiffel Tower charm?

Ah, cherries and tassels too. I have so much more to show you, but I have to contain my excitement for another day. Until then, I will leave you with this sweet tassel.

All this and more coming to my website Someplace In Thyme very soon.
