Pumpkins, Gourds and Mums Oh My!

Hello everyone! I hope you are having beautiful Fall weather wherever you may be! It has been absolutely gorgeous here lately! The leaves are turning, in fact my extra camera battery is charging and I am going out  and about this week to take some pictures of mother nature Autumn style!

Today, my daughter and I went to get some pumpkins for the front porch. Last year I had some heirloom pumpkins that I just loved, so I went back to Earl May to get some for this season. They had all colors, shapes and sizes, it was SO hard to choose!

Here are my heirloom pumpkins from last year~


Today I went for pumpkins but then I saw this, it was a HAD to have~


Look at the Kale on the side, it is gorgeous~


Here are the pumpkins we picked out~




Obviously I took these photos tonight, I will take better ones, when they are all arranged and tweaked a bit. This is just where everything ended up after I brought them home.

We had a great time, and we took our own sweet time picking pumpkins, it was perfect! Did I mention…. I LOVE Fall?? Haha!

Here is a picture of my daughter the scarecrow! Awwww… good times! :)


I found this quote and I just love it~

“Delicious autumn!  My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive Autumns.”  ~George Eliot

I would surely take Autumn all year round, wouldn’t you?

Until next time, take care.



  1. I think all looks great arranged on & beside your black porch bench. Your mum is the same color I planted in my flowerbeds. Very pretty.

  2. It looks great, Sarah! I love your flower. I do love fall, too! I wish it would last until Spring!

  3. Sarah, It looks like you and your dear daughter had a great time shopping for pumpkins and the beautiful fall arrangment:) Everything looks so usual!

  4. You are right the Fall plant is gorgeous!!! I love all the pumpkins you picked out the little white one is my favorite. I finally finished my porch but I still have a little bit to do inside. HAPPY FALL!!!!

    Fall Blessings,

  5. Sarah, everything looks gorgeous. Your pumpkins and mums you picked are perfect as they are. Your daughter looks so cute. your order will go out on Friday.

  6. Love your fall fixin's you got for outside. Can't wait to see them after the tweaking. :)

  7. I love this time of year too, wish it would last longer. Loved the pumpkins and gourds you got. My favorite is that white bumpy one. The mums are so pretty too. Enjoy!

  8. Love the basket of flowers!! The basket and pumpkins on the bench look pretty good, even before tweaking. 8-)

  9. Autumn is aces in my book too, Sarah!

    I love all of your pumpkin picks. We did the same last weekend, but I still need to buy some mums. We're hoping that the squirrels behave this year. Last year they feasted on all of our pumpkins. They must have been good ones!

    And speaking of pumpkins ... I'm so glad I've inspired you to branch out from black. I love black, but I've decided I need just a bit more color in my life. So far so good. I look forward to seeing your latest makeovers too...


  10. cute picture of your daughter! :) that is so much fun picking out pumpkins with the kids! we are going to the patch on saturday! i don't need any more but they like to pick out their jackolantern ones! :)

  11. Sarah,

    Your heirloom pumpkins from last year were pretty, but I love what you got this year too! And yes, that plant is gorgeous...very lush! Cute picture of your daughter, the scarecrow too!

    Have a great week!
