Here they are. We finally completed our first batch. We are very excited to introduce our new Prayer Pumpkins. We put the first ones out this weekend in the shop. What is a Prayer Pumpkin? As all Sacramentals, it is a reminder of our faith. It reminds us (everytime we see it) to talk to God. It reminds us to include him in all we do. If you would like, you may write your little prayer intentions on a slip of paper and place it beneath the pumpkin or roll it up into a scroll and attach it to the ribbon end until the prayer is answered. Each Prayer Pumpkin is constructed of velvet in beautiful aray of Fall colors. The stem is hand sculpted and painted. The pumpkin is adorned and completed with a velvet millinery leaf, vintage seam binding ribbon, and most important of all it holds a beautiful antique crucifix or religious medal for Europe. The word Prier on the aged tag means Pray in French.
The colors shown here are olive green and traditional orange. We also have them in winter white, mustard, and chocolate brown. More photos will follow as we fill our shop.
Let these pumpkins become part of a family tradition. Place it on your Family Prayer Table or place it in a special place where it will be seen often as a constant reminder of your faith. I cannot wait to give them to all the people I love. I think that I will even put a pink ribbon on a white velvet pumpkin and give it as a baby gift. What a great gift for a baby shower.
