It's beginning to look a lot like Autumn!!!!!

Stack Pumpkins

These are wonderful to add to your autumn decor. That perfect prim touch! From Baskets by Rose, these would look great on an entryway table, highboy or anywhere you wish to add that seasonal touch. In my home that would be everywhere!

She describes these as: Handmade from vintage fabric, dipped in coffee, vanilla, and cinnamon. Size about 6" across and 7" tall. Great for the fall season, late September through Thanksgiving Day. Place on a table, shelf, or use as a center piece.

You can see these and more at her Etsy shop at:

Take some time and enjoy her shop.
