My mom picked up some of these darling velvet, linen and burlap pumpkins for us at abode when we were in Half Moon Bay around their Pumpkin Festival earlier in October. They look so cute on our dining room table runner, and will be sitting there happily right on through Thanksgiving. Made from broken-off pumpkin stems, durable fabric, and rice or clove stuffing, they might be the most reusable Fall gift going. You can find them at Terrain, on etsy, and other shops too.
I just love Halloween in New England. Hope you can make it over to Beacon Hill or your own neighborhood for a good spooky trick-or-treat tonight.
