October 2011 Country LiVinG Magazine PUMPKINS... BOTTLES... ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Style!*!*!

The lastest October/Fall issue of COUNTRY LIVING MAGAZINE, is a "must SEE/READ"...  BeSt Issue in a long, long time!!!  The cover photo REALLY drew me in!!!   I just had to try my hand at the AmAziNg FALL PUMPKIN Idea & WHITE BOTTLES... Just a day before my ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! RoadSide SaLe, (like I had nothing to do...) - here's what I came up with!!!    


October 2011/Fall Issue
Country Living Magazine
Is this a FaB Cover or What!?!?!

 I displayed this PUMPKIN CREATION at my RoadSide SaLe on Saturday, along with a copy of the magazine...
  The milk glass pedestal/compote stand was JuSt PeRfeCT for displaying the Pumpkin!!!  Unfortunately the stand SOLD RIGHT AWAY ~ but it went to a good home!!!

 I followed Country Living's directions up to a certain point - then tossed-in a bit of my own interpretation ~ especially the center stem...

Not being a "crafter" - it seemed to take me a Long-Time...  AND now I know some things I'd do a little different/better...

 The next item that caught my eye in the magazine were WHITE BOTTLES with Bug/Nature Designs...  This was my "ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Interpretation of what I saw...  Soooo fun for HaLLoWeeN!*!*!  

 Here they are at Saturday's ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! RoadSide SaLe @ My Home...

 As items got SoLd, I created different vignettes using the BOTTLES...  Placement & Adornments can make such a difference...

I LoVEd the Bottles on the table's lower shelf...

MAYBE- More RoadSide Pics to Come???
I have such a BUSY WEEK AHEAD!!!  Less Blogging??? - More Doing is on my agenda...

Come ShoP-My-SHaBBies
S*U*N*D*A*Y  SePt. 25th...
See SideBar for Details...


  1. OMGosh! Your interpretation should be on the cover of Country Living! It is gorgeous. ~Lili

  2. AWESOME! Thanx for sharing. The owl pumpkin is amazing! Tiff

  3. I too had to buy that magazine just because of the cover. I am scared to try though--even though I am a crafter not quite sure how to make the paper lay flat and look right. Any suggestions? tips?

  4. I got my magazine last week and still have not been able to look thru it! I'm making time now for sure...the bottles and pumpkin look great!


  5. Shabby Chic Sandy...
    Need your EMAIL (did not find it on your blog) to "give you some PuMpKiN Tips"...
    Jeanine, ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!

  6. Was planning to try those too, Jeanine, but thought I would just dig into my stash of scrapbook paper instead of making color copies. LOVE your interpretation! I agree that this issue is a winner!

    See you at Elkhorn...where are you setting up?


  7. YES! I have plans to make the pumpkins / bottles too! I have a question though... did you use a Funkin, a real pumpkin, or some other mold? Thanks! Love your displays!

  8. SO adorable!! Can't wait to give these a try as well!
