My new guy love

No it's not what you think! I still am a happily married woman to my hubby of 19 years but I've met a new guy and in a prim lover's way, I adore him!

He's my latest make and yet another prim pumpkin doll. I'm seeing orange all the time! But what do you think of him?

Gotta love his burlap dungarees!

I used a pattern I got last Christmas from Blue Moon Beginnings which was for a snowman. I came across it last week as i was hunting for a different pattern and as I looked at it I thought,
'that could easily be a pumpkin doll!' and here it is.

Having a sweet tooth, I want some candy corn! This is what I got - not edible though!

I just had to have chocolate instead to satisfy that sweet tooth!! Yummm!

Two of my three kids returned to school yesterday so we're getting back into a routine and once again I seem to be spending more time than ever in the car to-ing and fro-ing.

Oh well, I need to call them indoors now as it's nearing bedtime. That's the part they don't like about being back to school!

It's been fun chatting with you all again!
Thanks for your lovely comments - I love to hear from you!
Best wishes


  1. Love the dolly! Burlap is the big trend now, isn't it! He's really cute and I love his stitched nose. I get so jealous when I see all the stitching everyone is doing. Your candy corn pillow is adorable. bedtime was always a challenge around here--not so much for Craig, but Brian would NOT go easily--and that was from the time he was still in his crib!! Little stinker!! :) Have a happy weekend! --Jan

  2. Those burlap overalls are awesome! Totally perfect for this little guy.

  3. While you are sleeping on your side of the world, I am gushing over such a sweet pumpkin man. It's perfectly ok to fall in love again:) I've got to get some candy corn made. It's on my list. We are off to our school open house. Sweet dreams. -Steph-

  4. Awwwww! He is sooo cute. I think I have a crush on your little guy too! And the pillow is adorable! So talented! I can't answer for kids, but I know it is hard for this teacher to adjust to school time! I feel for your two!

    Blessings and pleasant dreams! Try not to eat that pillow!
