Little bit of Harvest!

My pumpkins and squash are starting to ripen...my favorites are the little white pumpkins. I have started to do some Fall cleaning and decorating and my dining area is a favorite spot to decorate, or should I say my favorite things end up here because I see them the most. Coleus cuttings look so pretty in a jar....the colors are perfect harvest colors.









My little powder room gets some decorations too.



Don't forget the Spiced Pumpkin soap.






There are still pumpkins on the vine, can't wait to see how big they get.






This one is huge already and there are cornstalks to cut, but it is too wet today. See this is why I garden. The great rewards at Harvest time.

Oh how wonderful that you grow your own. I used to try and grow them, but I have never been successful. Yours all look fabulous and such wonderful vignettes. Love all of your fall decor. Hugs, Marty

How beautiful. Next year I'm planting pumpkins and little gourds.

I am so jealous!! I wanted to plant pumpkins... but forgot!! I love to decorate with them... and cook with them.... and carve them. They can get pricy as much as I like them.... Now I know I HAVE to next year!! There is nothing like a pumpkin to make me smile. They are the heralds to my most favorite season!! I am going to have to get some of that pumpkin spice soap. That just sounds wonderful!! All your decorations are beautiful!! ;0)

Oh! Everything looks so nice! I AM a Fall girl! LOL! Our weather has been milder but I can hardly wait until there's a nip in the air!

I hold off on decorating until the end of this month and leave it through Thanksgiving. This is my favorite time of the year.

I too, love the white pumpkins best! I wish I could grow my own. I have a big fake one that I love. I'd like to get some smaller ones this year. I love the natural decorating things like the pumpkins, fall leaves & Indian corn, etc.

Have a great week!
