My Version of Fall Decorating

October 15, 2010

My favorite Halloween/Fall images of all time.

Mini white pumpkins are added to a vase for a centerpiece.

I still have these pages from Cottage Living.  Every Halloween, I long to recreate this look. And every Halloween, I am left with the same boring old orange pumpkins tossed haphazardly in a row on my front porch.

I want an abundance of greige-y green and white pumpkins coupled with nailhead trimmings.

I want a giant vase (vah-ze) like this one that won’t get knocked over by a Buzz LightYear toy. And won’t have fruit flies buzzing around short of a week.

    yes, but now you have the beauty of haphazdly carved pumpkins, pictures of witches, ghosts and spiders…all by chubby little perfect hands. When you are able to do this…you’ll long for what you have today! Ahhhh…the dicotomy of parenthood.
