Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

Ok, it wasn't really the pumpkin patch, it was a roadside stand selling pumpkins, gourds, hay, cornstalks and mums. We had just as much fun looking at the autumn colors of these earthy treasures.

Today's mission to get small pumpkins for decorating, we will be decorating these pumpkins to enjoy probably until we get out our Christmas decorations. I was especially pleased with our finds today as they had pie pumpkins and then the mini pumpkins that were 3 for 1.00, perfect for crafting with little hands.

My daughter and I probably spent 40 minutes choosing 8 pumpkins, we took time to look at all the pumpkins and talked about going back for the pumpkins we will carve later this season.

We will be gathering up embellishments from my sewing room in Halloween colors, rick rack, beads, buttons, ribbons, boas and sequins. Stay tuned I will be sharing our creations in the next week or so. For now the pumpkins await their festive dressings.

I am 23 and have never carved a pumpkin. Maybe this year will be my first :)

I just love fall! I used to take my kids (25 and 23 now) to pumpkin patches when they were little, too. Brings back nice memories..Beautiful pictures! Thanks for sharing.
