More Pumpkin Fun & Awards


This little white pumpkin has some pretty fall leaf stickers all around the top.



This is a pumpkin I did last year. I just used some scraps of ribbon and scrap fabric for the leaves.



This is also from last year. I just took little terracotta pots and painted them. Then I used stick on letters. You could do three pots that spell "boo", or "eek", or "harvest", "home", you can spell out tons of things! Then I just set the pumpkins on top.


+++++++++++++++++++++++

Thank you, thank you to three wonderful ladies for the following awards. I'm so honored to have received these awards!!!

Good Morning,

I love what you did with the pumpkins...very creative !!! But I just can't get into the white pumpkins, for me they have to be orange...I just love the splash of orange around the house this time of year !!!

All the best,
Kathy :)

Cute, cute, cute! I love the simplicity of your Fall decorating. Very chic!

Congrats on your awards, Manuela!

Love the tips you shared, too. I thought of you yesterday when I bought three "green" bags at the dollar store. They are a good size to reuse over and over for bagging groceries.

hugs,
Becky

Don't you just love all of the decorating that you can do with pumpkins?! I just love the terra cotta pots that you fixed up.
If I can finish canning and storing apples,muscadines, and tomatoes this week, I plan to gather our autumn delights (I just hope I can find them after this mess of a move over the summer!)
Hope that you have a beautiful week!
Jen
