Vintage Glam Fairy Pumpkins


I harvested an armload of wee mini-pumpkins today,
all of them a creamy ivory white.
I then decided they needed to be dressed up, of course!




This little September Cinderella vignette 
has them snuggled up in one of my bird nests
with some vintage jewels that were Grandma's,
 on her vintage Quaker lace linen.




These pumpkins are soooo sweetly tiny...
I can fit TWO of them in the nest!
Just the size of a rose bud
or a brooch,
they are almost naturally for dolls.



We grew them in the garden,
one of the only pumpkin varieties
 that survived the garden traumas this year.

I KNOW we planted more pumpkins...
I think they all succumbed to the squirrels love for freshly hoed earth.







Aren't they lovely,
such a perfect combination of textures, sparkles,
and reflected light.
It sparks a certain kinda woodsy Cinderella charm
that makes me want to break out the glass slippers,
if I actually had any.






Just perfect for a fairy or left behind by fairy god-mother's spell...
you'd almost expect one to pop out here
and sit awhile for my photo shoot.







My daughter has been leaving a small tea cup of milk
out for the fairies on these early autumn nights.

We're livin' in a sweet dream world right now.
She's totally into fairies.






Is it the fairies that drink the milk-
or the neighborhood cat?

Oh these little babies look adorable all dressed up and bejeweled! I had a huge pumpkin vine and flowers in my back yard where we leave the leftover pumpkins for the squirrels, but if there were any pumpkins there, they've been snarfed by the fur varmints!

Hi Andrea, love your little baby boo's! Is that what the seeds are called? I planted four kinds of pumpkins. Have quite a few to harvest but waiting a bit longer. I planted one hill of baby boo's but it didn't get much water. Thinking I don't have many there. They are so sweet in the nest! Darling vignette! Not sure if it's just me, but half of your pictures didn't show up. I was sad that I didn't get to see them.
hugs,
Jann

Those are adorable pumpkins. You grew them yourself? I love it! I love the vintage jewelry with it. I'm all about vintage as I wrote a fictional vintage novel: girlinthejitterbugdress.com. How did you think of the idea? Oh and I love the white roses with them too. Very romantic!
