Pumpkins Galore!



Our local farm had pumpkins galore!

These, even though orange....poor things... were somehow exciting to see...
...as they brought back happy memories of good times Trick or Treating as a kid.

But, alas....orange.





I loved these big squishy Cinderella gourds...
...even if they are a bit orangy...


Eureka!
White Pumpkins!


Although, three times as expensive as the ones I am sure I will eventually find up in the mountains...I had to bring one or two home with me.


And, these two were perfect...
and white!





A few baby boos...



A trio of little white and pale green gourds...


Another Boo for You!


Mission Accomplished!

Let the fall decorating begin!

I did my little Saturday Vintage Finds post over at The Inspiration Studio...
...found some pretty cool things on Etsy this week!

What is with your obsession with white pumpkins!? Though I must admit I love them, I have never seen them before. xxx

Hi Georgia!
I know...it is true...I am obsessed with white pumpkins...it's just because I have this strange aversion to the color orange...and once I saw white pumpkins it changed the way I felt about decorating for the fall season!
And just so you know...I have many friends who love orange and it looks fabulous in their homes! :)

Awesome...I've only seen baby boo's around here. I tried growing white pumpkins last year and only 2 grew! Fussy little things.
Maybe I'll find some this week.

Last year I looked everywhere for real white pumpkins! None to be found in the state of Virginia. I ended up buying faux ones but this year my search has begun again. Love these white pumpkins!

I can't believe it's pumpkin season already! I enjoyed all your photos of them. The two you picked are perfect! No wonder you couldn't pass them up.

Glad you were able to find the elusive and beloved White Pumpkins. Love the shot of them on that old bench. Those Gourds sure were beautifully colored, I would not have been able to resist a few of each color of Pumpkin and Gourd since I wouldn't have been able to narrow down a fav color, love 'em all.

Real white pumpkins....very nice!

Florence said...

At least you are finding orange ones, we will be lucky if ours turn orange, we might have a green pumpkin year. Um what kind of decorating will that conjure up? Florence

Gorgeous pumpkins!! I am just now starting to dig out some of the fall decor- I agree- orange is not the color for me to decorate with either!! You blog is so charming- Im having my first link party this weekend all about decorating inspirations- I would love it if you would consider joining in. :)
