velvet squash

stylish serendipity photo

Our sons' girlfriend gifted us with one of these this weekend from her mom's shop in downtown Chagrin Falls.  Daria Knowles of Portland, Oregon creates fabric sculptures she calls Hot Skwash. They are elegant sand filled faux squashes made of soft velvet and attached to real gourd stems. They are beautifully constructed, come in assorted rich shades and never rot!

  1. They're gorgeous with the natural greenery in that urn, one of the prettiest ways I've seen them displayed!

  2. These are divine. Wish we had them in the UK.


I would love to hear from you!
