About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

For the Love of Pumpkins

   I bought this book last year in, of all places, Wal Mart's Neighborhood Market!  It has the most wonderful photography and fabulous ways to use pumpkins.  I had to share:

   This is a pumpkin water fountain.  The bittersweet adds the loveliest touch!

   Pumpkins and Mums- the perfect combination for Fall!

   Who knew that the color orange could be so lovely?

   Aren't these little children precious?  They are playing a tossing game with pumpkins!

   You all know I love this one!  Just get some hot glue and fun buttons and you're all set!

   Tiny Baby Boo pumpkins used as place cards.  So charming.

   These are just a few of my favorite ideas in the book.  If you see a copy of For the Love of Pumpkins, make sure and treat yourself!

I think the button one is my favorite. I went to Wallmarket the other night and bought the newest issue of Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion & some Halloween ribbon. I bought the newest issue of Country Living at Target. You have to get them if you haven't already. I think they have some lovely ideas you would really like. If you get them let me know what you think.

Great header, Lori! Pumpkins are so fun...did you get the family fun magazine yet? They make the cutest bats out of pumpkins, but then again I don't know if I could ever bring myself to paint a beautiful orange pumpkin, black.
