The Chinoiserie Pumpkin

It all began when I was invited to attend a blogger luncheon at  Tina's from The Enchanted Home. I was to be among some of the most talented bloggers and women that I admire and I wondered ."what can I bring to the table?" It was October and being a former mural artist the only thing I could think of was painted pumpkins.  I never dreamed they would be something that people would actually want.  I am so grateful to Tina and other's who have promoted my little hobby of painting pumpkins, it has become a little side job now! I have  some stock right now of medium to mini pumpkins. I love to paint, so really the sky is the limit as to what I can try to design on them. Right now Chinoiserie in blue and white seems to be the hit! Please email me -towncountryinteriors@yahoo.com if  you are interested in prices and availability.  
I truly appreciate all the love I have received for these little guys! Happy Autumn all!

-Below are an example of the pumpkins that I have painted for customers.

  4. Lady "K" you amaze me!
    Those pumpkins leave me in awwww! Loving the black and white... But that bleus would be hard to turn away from. You need a art gallery boutique carrying these, and then to do a signing, YES! a pumpkin signing. If I were your close town friend I would be your personal rep! And be marketing you all over the big design show rooms, geeze girl you PAINT, and so amazingly.....you give new meaning to loving pumpkins not just in October, but year around.

    I have to go back and visit your pumpkins some more.
    Why, oh why being a painter myself not think of this, DARN YOU! :)

    You have inspired my day truly, I need to paint on some sort of foodie now, hmmmmm! GORDS? Not! :)

    See you soon beautiful.

  9. My pumpkin is one of my favorite things! Is it horrible that I have left it in my kitchen all year? I added it to a bowl of faux lemons and it makes me smile whenever I look at it! Hope all is well in your world, sweet Karolyn...looking forward to seeing you soon! xoxo

  24. Your details are so spot-on! I'm so happy for you that your hard work has won a lot of notice. I've been seeing your pumpkins all over instagram so I know you are probably painting more of them right now to meet that demand :) Jenn at East Meets South
