Well, the fall decorations have been up for a little while now, and I must say that there is nothing quite like seeing visions of warty pumpkins everywhere I turn.
You should have been here a few weeks ago. Stan sent me picture after picture after picture to my phone of the coolest pumpkins and gourds from a nearby stand...I was SO excited. I picked out a few as best I could, and he came home with a pretty marvelous stash. He won major points.
So I pretty much just put these unique pumpkins all around the house and didn't do anything super special or creative, but I kind of like it that way: simple.
Almost all of the pumpkins pictured are real, but a few fake ones are interspersed throughout just to keep ya guessing.
I did wrap some twine around my wreaths to contain them a bit (they liked to attack people as they entered...not so nice) and just to change things up a little.
I heard about the coffee filter wreath below from my friend Shelley's blog, and my friend Ashlee and I made some of our own. So cheap, easy, and fun! Here is the link to the directions.
I really have lit those candles a few times, even though it doesn't look like it...
THIS is my SECOND favorite pumpkin. What a pretty gray/green color, right?
Just thought I'd add a recent picture from a pumpkin patch :). The picture is deceiving...Anniston was not very smiley that day, but I will still share some of the pouty pictures soon.
And, thank you for your ideas on what to do with my little wreaths...you guys are pretty creative! Will update on what I've decided asap!
This is really the end, promise.
