I took the kids to get pumpkins yesterday. We usually buy from our local produce stand, and we did again this year.
Here we had started a pile of our choices.
They also have wonderful mums. I didn't buy any mums yesterday, but I probably will go back. I think we need a few more pumpkins for outside.
These pumpkins look bigger in the photo than they are. Kyle and Kamryn drew faces on their tiny ones!
I like the shape of this one and the color.
I piled a dark green one and some littles in with my candle and some dried hydrangea.
This is a work in progress. I just threw it together to see what it would look like. I may change out a pumpkin or two for deeper color. I've never stacked my pumpkins, though I like the look very much. I need something for the pumpkins to sit on in the urn, and candles for the lanterns. And I may use different lanterns altogether. I may put mums here or decorative cabbage, instead of the brown eyed susans.
This is the fun part of putting it all together and seeing what works. What about you? Have you bought any pumpkins yet?
ps- I fixed the link for the Perfect Everytime Turkey on the last post!
pss - Here is a link to the video that Joseph's mom Susanna posted. It is only of Josie's room, but I may ask if I can come do a video tour with her of the other rooms. It really looks great. Josie's room was a delight to do because it perfectly fits her needs and yet it looks just like a teen girls bedroom and not like a accessible bedroom other than a few details (well thought out) here and there and in the bathroom!
Josie and I played WAR the other day at their house during the open house, and I am happy to say that I skunked her! It was close at first, but then I won! ha ha! She's a great girl and very independent and capable. Lindsay has wonderful in laws!
