I love autumn best of all the seasons. It’s always been my favorite time of the year and I only truly feel alive when there is a nip in the air. Living in Louisiana all my life I THOUGHT the fall leaves were beautiful, but it wasn’t until my husband and I lived in Virginal for a while that I made my first trip to the mountains and discovered how colorful fall leaves really are.
Subsequent visits to the Ozark, Ouachita, and Smokey Mountains proved equally colorful. It’s been a while since I’ve last visited the mountains – illness has prevailed both physically and financially – and I have no hope of visiting them soon but sometimes when I drive through a hilly (for Louisiana) area I pretend I am in the mountains.
Right now pretending and creating fall crafts will have to be enough. So I present to you this Rustic Burlap Pumpkin. I am using mine as an ornament for my Fall Garland but you could use this on a greeting card or a scrapbook page or even frame it for a cute fall wall decoration or use it as a package decoration for a fall gift.
