Paperback Pumpkin Plus The Goodbye Lie Diaries - Carolena Dunnigan

     I have discovered The Shabby Tree, online,  featuring Barb, the wonderfully energetic hostess and crafter there.  Here is another of her ideas:  It's a pumpkin made from an old paperback book.  Since I love books, and this novel was on its way to the trash because a few pages were missing, I saved it and turned it into this pretty pumpkin.  It isn't hard at all.  Scissors, hot glue, a light spray of orange paint and whatever trim you have will work.  The link to Barb's blog with instructions is below. Because Fall is in the air here in Florida, make one and keep it sitting out through Thanksgiving.  Have fun crafting!


The Goodbye Lie Diaries
(Defined - Through the magic of electronics and a sprinkle of stardust, we are able to communicate with the Dunnigan family of The Goodbye Lie series, set in Fernandina on Amelia Island, Florida in the latter part of the 19th century.)

*Carolena writes:  I certainly think your book pumpkin is lovely.  Should I find a terribly worn softback book on the shelf or elsewhere, I will attempt to create my own. From the photograph, the steps necessary seem to be to cut the pages in half-circles, paste  first page to last to form a circle, dash on a few strokes of paint and decorate.  Thank you to this Barb and her  Shabby Tree, as well.

*Carolena Dunnigan is a prime player in 
Amelia Island's Velvet Undertow, set in 1889 Fernandina on Amelia Island, Florida.  Judgemental, with a hasty temper, she is the interior designer for yachts and ships in the family's Aqua Verde Passenger Line.  Commissioned to build a yacht for a world famous conductor, deceit reigns, taking the family into the horrors of the great Johnstown, Pennsylvania flood.  One reader wrote: I can smell the flood waters! This is all part of Jane Marie Malcolm's Goodbye Lie historical mystery/romance series.
