The Primitive Gathering

The Primitive Gathering is a wonderful website that I have been actively shopping on for over a year. All the talented folk artists there are so inspiring and have lovely blogs as well. I am so blessed to be the guest artist on Primitive Gatherings for the month of October. To be honest, I'm a little nervous to show my creations next to such talented artists, but they all are so kind. Sweet Annee, aka Deena Warner, did a lovely job on my page and I just can't thank her enough. Click here to take a peek.

I also need to credit folk artist, Maggie Bonanomi. She created the incredible patterns that these pumpkins and acorns are based on.

Maggie has an incredible new book out called "With these hands".

TDIPT Mercantile has also updated today with lots of lovely fall follies.
Take a peek as you might find something that you can't live without.
I'm so happy to share my TDIPT space with my sister-in-law, Joy of Joyfully Yours this month.

I love her wooden pumpkins. Last year I filled my old dry sink with them and sprinkled orange led lights and brown craft paper around them. (I had to recreate the sweet vignette that I saw at Joy's house ;-) I don't think that she minded.) As soon as I put out my fall decorations, I will share a photo with you.

"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns." -George Eliot

Wishing you crisp sunny autumn days.

Blessings, Patti

Hi Patti...Everything is so beautiful! I'm gonna have to check out that book...I think my mom would love it also ~ she makes penny rugs and likes to work with wool (good xmas gift).

I just (finally) checked out the Primitive Gathering website for this month and will be moving on to the others in a bit but I had to say how nice it was to see you on P.G. Your cards are so pretty also.

Have a happy day and enjoy your weekend! xoxo Jenn

Your work is absolutely stunning! And, 17 little boys under one roof for a sleepover?! Sounds like a blast. You are brave. :)
