A New Member of the Pumpkin People Family

I was a late bloomer when it came to buying pumpkins this year. I had every intention of creating another family of pumpkin people for my last two vintage shows, but the stores around here weren't carrying small pumpkins and I eventually ran out of creating time. I couldn't let the year go by without creating at least one new member of the family. 

Make a unique Pumpkin People creation with vintage trinkets and a tarnished silver teapot.
 Her mini pumpkin head sits on a tarnished silver teapot decorated with vintage underwear buttons and a lace collar. Her sweet face came to life with the help of watch parts, rhinestones, a rusty keyhole, chandelier crystals, a lamp part, and a clip-on earring for the hat.

She'll be hanging around until the end of November waving her Best Wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving message.

Unfortunately, the other family members rarely survived after Thanksgiving, but you can still get a glimpse of them: Pumpkins with Attitude and A New Generation of Pumpkins with Attitude
