Pumpkins Past....



Yes, it's THAT time of year...
PUMPKINS....
Pumpkins everywhere.

I have found that most of my favorites
thru the years have been, * gasp...
FAUX...


The GOLDEN ONES, perched on glass candlesticks
made my heart sing, every time I walked into the living room.
I'll be putting these on my mantel soon.

Right up there on the mantel with the PIGS
*

...metal

...lighted
(one of my favorites)

I've had the pumpkin plate for several years
and still love using it during the season.

A tiny REAL one....I like the little ones.


...little Boos ...my favorite..


...fun with
BOOS


The more they have for a stem, the better...
 That was the year of  "worlds collide" and I had blooming roses
during Halloween....
(and....waffles that morning...)
These were the bloomingest roses I have ever had and I miss them.
I will plant another rose bush in the spring.
Life is too short to go without roses.


Little boo pumpkins hanging out with a plate of
tiny
PUMPKIN PIES heaped high with the BEST
WHIPPED CREAM.


This black with white dots pumpkin was so fun....




KITTY sent this beautiful crocheted pumpkin to me last year and I treasure it.
THANK YOU AGAIN, KITTY. :)
♥ 

I like having fun with cute pumpkins...
They are about the only Autumn decorations I use.....
along with PUMPKIN CANDLES
and a bunch of Autumn faux flowers.



I love playing with my photos in
 PhotoScape, a free online editing.

Aren't these Mercury Glass Pumpkins from Pottery Barn just beautiful !
Now THESE fauxs are to die for....
HAVE FUN WITH YOUR PUMPKINS this year...
OOO....
and don't forget to take pictures and share with us.
 
Autumn love to all, bj

  5. Well my friend BJ I will admit - I have never seen a pumpkin I haven't loved and adored! Faux or real, yes as Charlie Brown said its Pumpkin time! I'm not a purist nor snob when it comes to the magical allure of pumpkins.

  36. Beautiful pumpkins! I love them all ~ the glitter and bling are "me". :) Love the black & white polka dot as well as the one that lights up. I had one of those...not sure what happened to it. Probably gave it away when I moved...gave away sooooo much. The tiny real pumpkins are favorites of mine too.

  38. You do have pumpkins. I've been seeing the black pumpkins with polka dots ... am thinking about attacking one or more! Then again, I may just stick to my three fabric pumpkins and all it enough! I will start Halloween decorating tomorrow! Almost October. I'm hoping it will make the weather feel cooler! Ha!
