Pumpkins!!!!

I played with my pumpkins today.


I arranged some of them with my owls.


Here is the ceramic pedestal I found at the thrift store a few weeks ago.


And here are the metal plant holders I bought for a dollar each. I painted them and they are perfect for holding pumpkins.


I also filled the cage with gourds and pumpkins.


And I swagged some bittersweet over the top.


I replaced the owls on the plant stand with pumpkins.



I put pumpkins in the birdfeeder.


And put some on the hanging feeder behind the cage.


A big green gourd fit right in the middle.


Even the hand birdfeeder holds a pumpkin.


And the little chair.




If there is such a thing as pumpkin fever I think I have it.


I even made pumpkin cupcakes.


My daughter is taking them to work.


At least I didn't decorate them with pumpkins.


Check out the cool wrought iron fence cupcake wrappers.



*Tomorrow I will be posting a bit later than usual. We are off on another day trip.

Have a fun trip! I wish I were in your neighborhood. I'd love to sit and have some hot team in the garden near all the pumpkins! Nice use of the things you've found at the flea markets. You really should write a book with photos of all your collections and all about your Octoberfarm...

Okay...first I have to know. WHO do you share all that delicious food you make with? Because I know you can't possibly consume all that. And secondly I want to say how much I love the display. Owls and Pumpkins...2 of my very favorite things. Happy 1st Day of October! :o)

You my dear, are freaking amazing.

I love the pumpkins display, and the owls. Owls are overlooked winged creatures of the night, we don't see enough of them. They are the origins of a lot of ghost stories.

You have to give us the recipe of the pumpkin cakes.
