“I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself,
than be crowded on a velvet cushion” Henry David Thoreau
Now me...I would LOVE to sit on a VELVET PUMPKIN with all my friends! About velvet -
Velvet is a luxurious fabric with a history that dates back thousands of years. In many ages and cultures, velvet was a highly prized textile which symbolized wealth, power and prestige. The pile weave that characterizes velvet gives it a rich look that is often associated with royalty. Thanks to modern manufacturing methods, this rich fabric that was once reserved for the elite is now available at reasonable prices! Catie Watson
... ...and now we turn velvet into pumpkins...how times do change!
We sell a nice white cotton velvet at the store - it can be dyed any color - just like the orange pumpkins we have for sale - dyed with Rit's Sunshine Orange.
Looks like it is going to be a lovely day today!!!
