Pumpkin Wreath & A Give Away!

I've mentioned that I'll be attending a very special SCRAPBOOK EVENT at the end of the month.  All the proceeds from the registration and auction items go to help fund "Mary's Dream", a non-profit that works to prevent
--and assist those who are touched by--domestic violence. 
I usually take a few things I've created for the auction. 
This year one of the items is this wreath:
I actually painted the lightbulb pumpkins a few years ago (when I was still doing craft shows) and had six guys left.  I thought they would be great on a wreath so that's what I did.  I found ribbon, felt leaves and fall sprays to match
and put together this wreath.
Here's what the individual pumpkins look like.  The design is from Sandy Holman:
I still have one pumpkin left and he's lonely! 
He has a little round hanger at the top so you could hang him from a peg. 
Or just display him in a little cup. 
If you can give this little Jack a home,
leave me a comment (by Sunday night)
and I will have Mr. Random pull a name and I will send him to you.
