~ Fall Decorating, Last Day Nie Nie Benefit Sale

Oh I love this! Funny, it's mine. I don't quite remember this arrangement. But I love that big gourd. Now where is it? This is from 2006 and the previous fall photo with the large floral (thanks for the compliments on it) is from 2005. What fun finding older photos and seeing what you did before. Last year I used more of the white pumpkins, but I haven't found all of them yet either. But now that I look at the picture, half of those small gourds were real! That does remind me of the beautiful bag of real ones I found last year. So those are gone for sure. But I hope I have a photo somewhere. I'd like to do that again.

(UPDATE on Benefit Sale: All Sold!
What big hearts people have.

Thank YOU to all who participated!)

Last day of the Nie Nie Benefit Sale on Etsy. So amazing at the kindness and generosity of everyone. 1 pm EST.

Two Beau Bunny Prints will be up for sale there today. Since I will be mailing these out, be sure to let me know if you purchase one so I can send you a little surprise. But the sweet ladies who purchased from my shop after the benefit ones sold, I sent you something, too.

See ya' soon!


  1. Got him! Whew. That was fast paced once again, and too much fun. What a fantastic cause, and what fantastic people who donated such wonderful things - including you!

  2. Natalie you must have been very, very fast! I never even saw the prints listed. They were gone so fast, I thought maybe they didn't get listed until I looked at the sold items.

    I'm so happy that you did get yours!
    I'll get your package ready. You can email me with your address. Morgan is going to send me the addresses for both that sold. They will be mailed as soon as I have addresses.

    Thank YOU!

  3. Donna, I love both arrangements but this one is my favorite! I was looking at some pictures from last year and decided that I'm just not going to do as much this year!


  4. Don't you hate it when you can't find stuff? I love that big gourd. That whole vignette is really pretty and original.

  5. I hope you don't mind me linking to you from cjane. I am trying to spread the word about a Nie project I am starting, check it out at or on her benefit blog. Thank you! Candice

  6. Hi Donna,

    Kathy :)

  7. Hi Donna
    We've been running here and there so I am just now seeing this post!
    I love that photo. The arrangement is wonderful. When we were driving back from St Charles Friday morning, we drove by a "pumpkin patch". There was a huge table of birdhouse gourds, still not made into birdhouses. I would love to pick up a couple of those and stain them. We're returning to St Chas Saturday. Maybe I will remember to go by there.
    Hope your weekend is wonderful!

  8. I've received him! Thank you so much. He is something to behold in person. I love him. And your special are too much! I posted on my blog but wanted to make sure you knew.
