Pumpkin Love


Beth'sAmong the many things that excite me this time of year is going to Beth’s Farm Market in Warren, Maine.

Linda  075The hard part is deciding what to get, so I just load my basket with no idea what happens next.

pumpkins/porchAt home, the front porch need a little change from summer to fall and my bounty will fill the bill.

Falling for Fall Porch Party

  1. Wonderful Fall photographs – think I may be heading over to the Farmers’ Market to take a shot of pumpkins for Pumpkin Oil Pastel 2014. Have a lovely weekend.

  2. Nice array of pumpkins and gourds, Linda. The peanut pumpkin is a little creepy, looks like it has a fungus growing out of the top…great for Halloween decorations, though!
    Have a great weekend.

  3. Mazie (not sure if that’s spelled correctly) looks absolutely adorable on the front porch! What fun that must have been shopping and then decorating …you have a gift of pulling it all together and creating things of beauty.

  4. This totally gets me in the mood to get out there and hit the pumpkin patch!!! One about 45 minutes from home is the best. Maybe next weekend. Ramon is out of town this weekend, so I’ll have to wait for him to return. I can’t wait!!! I hope you’re having a wonderful fall weekend!
