Twine and chicken wire

Hi my dear friends, I hope this finds you well.  I am of few words today. It’s a beautiful Sunday morning and there is a cool yet gentle breeze outside that smells like fall.

There are so many thoughts running through my mind, but none want to materialize onto the screen and so with humble quietness, I want to show you this:
I have seen painted pumpkins, chalked up pumpkins, studded pumpkins, bedazzled pumpkins, blue, silver and golden pumpkins, book pumpkins and even pumpkins wearing fishnet stockings.
And well, here is my contribution….
A pumpkin made out of chicken wire…

And while I was at it, I grew some
homemade wheat stalks out of twine….
I braided the twine with a fishtail
braid and glued it to a BBQ skewer…
I think they resemble wheat stalks (?)
Creativity for me, is making use of anything that is around you.  Allowing your mind to be free and breaking through any boundaries that may hinder your ability to express yourself.  Whether it’s gallery worthy or otherwise. 
This here, is me expressing my creativity without
boundaries, whether it’s gallery worthy or not…
Thank you so much for  your company even during my quiet moments.
I wish you a beautiful weekend full of creativity and love.
much love,

    Among lots of craft blogs I follow that have been publishing pumpkins for a while, THIS pumpkin is by far the BEST, the most original, the one I’d like to have in my house.
    Keep well,
    ps: sorry for my bad english :)

    Dear Lucy, excuse for invasion, but I like your knitted classes and ask for permission to post them on my blog, of course bound to put a link to your pages. Nice day. Iva

    So so cute, Lucy! Sometimes what doesn’t work out turns out to be best. This is a great example. I love the simplicity of it. I was so busy looking at the pumpkins I didn’t even realize the wheat stalks weren’t real until I went back and looked again. Brilliant!

    Hugs…Tracy :)

    Hi Lucy~

    I have seen many kinds of pumpkins at this time of year, too, but this is my favorite! It is simply gorgeous! And your faux wheat stalks look quite authentic!

    I hope you have a lovely day! :)

    This is so very cool! I never have enough patience for dealing with chicken wire (it doesn’t cooperate like I want it to. lol) so I don’t know if I could try this or not, but I’d sure love to! :) So adorable!
