Get an Early Start on Your Autumn Decor!

If I decorate for a holiday, I am usually a last minute decorator. Maybe it's because I dread getting down boxes of decorations and I don't even want to think of fighting the holiday crowds at the stores. So I finally set out a candle or two that evokes feelings of fall and pumpkins and burning leaves... oh wait! That's my candle burning and wax running over the edge of the table... and that is why I now use candle warmers, lol!

I do love cozy, rustic scented candles and I love leaves and pumpkins and warm colors of autumn. My little velvet pumpkins are just the thing for a touch of autumn here and there without going overboard or dragging out half the boxes of holiday decor only to find I decided to get rid of my old decor and make new fresh looking items... which never happened.

I also like decorating with pumpkin artwork. Everyone puts out a fall wreath or a pumpkin or a bowl of acorns and gourds... but how many people bother to change out the artwork on their walls for fall? I do that now that I have some of my own paintings to use.. and I have some in my Etsy shop if you'd like something special for your wall, too!

I'll let you in on something... I have a coupon code for 30% off anything and everything in my Lana Manis Designs Etsy shop... including original artwork! It's good through July 31st and is in celebration of my 30th wedding anniversary later this month! Just use this code during checkout: 30YEARS and you'll get 30% off! :)

As for the velvet pumpkins, you can orders yours right here. I have over 3 dozen velvet pumpkins made and ready to ship. They are made from vintage velvet and recycled wool (cashmere, lambswool, etc.). They are about 4" across and do double duty as a pincushion if needed!

Choose by pumpkin color listed under each photo.
Stem and leaf color will vary slightly but you may specify if you want green or neutral.

Just email me --- lanamanis{at} OR honeysucklelane{at} --- with your choices. I'll get right back to you with a PayPal invoice.

$25 each plus a flat rate of $5 shipping in the US.
If outside the US, please email me for a shipping quote.

have a blessed weekend!
