Tucked in a valley, at the foot of Round Mountain, among the graceful Maples & Oaks you will find our Little Brown House. Smoke billows from the chimney seven or eight months out of the year, a river rambles nearby, sheep & cows graze in the meadows and turkey's forage along the olde stone walls. Here you will find me, tucked into my cozy studio surrounded by my work. This is Vermont Harvest Folk Art.

~ I am a Punch Needle Embroidery Folk Artist, Rug Hooker and teacher, who is inspired by my love of Early American art. I have a small open studio and shop in our Vermont home, where I hosts holiday events, workshops and individual lessons.~

~Year Of The Pumpkin~


 At least it is at The Frost household. My goodness our pumpkin patch is amazing this year.  Mother Nature can be trying at times as she put us through hell with her hot, humid, unbearable days however, she has seen fit to reward us with the nicest pumpkin patch we've ever had.  This particular pumpkin is my favorite.  LOOK at those ridges..she's gorgeous!  And her color, oh my goodness I love all the variations of green!  She seems to be staying green too although, when I was in the pumpkin patch this morning giving everyone a roll over to avoid rot, she is turning orange underneath, which is baffling but as I said before "mother nature" :).

We are trying to hold off picking them but it is getting harder and harder not to!  We also have some gooseneck gourds growing in the patch as well. 

Autumn...she is slowly making her way to Vermont :)

She's a bit orange underneath :)
Here are a few other garden shots and a shot of my end of Summer/early Autumn window boxes. I'll be changing everything over to Autumn very soon! 

           Here she is in all her glory ~ Isn't she just the PERFECT Cinderella Pumpkin :)  I just LOVE HER!!!!!

 I'm off now to stuff my punched pillows and then I'm on Mimi duty this afternoon.

Until tomorrow ~ wishing you joy, Doreen
