I have searched high and low for another just like it, or something similar, to satisfy my constant craving. No luck. Then I read through Robin Brown's book by Country Living- A Bit of Velvet & a Dash of Lace: The Fabulous Interiors of Magnolia Pearl and notice she has an artist friend paint peacocks on her walls.
So, I have contacted a local artist, Sandra Dee, and hope she'll paint a mural on my bedroom wall that will put me at rest. However, if you run across this painting, call me.

This summer and fall I subscribed to a farm co-op program, where every Wednesday you pick up a box full of seasonal fruits and vegetables. It was fun and somewhat adventurous eating a predetermined selection by mother nature. I shared the bounty with an elderly friend, a man who loves to cook. The food was yummy and farm fresh. But, my two favorite weeks were the two I got these fabulous pumpkins. One a blue green and one a mottled orange, both with deep ridges. I was selfish and kept them in my dining room as decoration, feeling somewhat wasteful for not eating them. They were gorgeous and made me smile every time I went in the room.
They have lasted 6 months and I have just thrown them away. I can't wait for this season to start and see what's in the box each week.
