Hi Everyone!

What time is it?  PUMPKIN TIME!   It is officially here, the weather has taken a tiny dip in temperature and that means it's pumpkin time in my world. I love Autumn, even here in South Florida there are subtle changes, but mostly it is a state of mind. 

Pumpkin Patches, Pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies.....who doesn't like pumpkins? No, don't answer that. 

 I have a small collection of pumpkins, decorative of course, they live in the kitchen on the Baker's Rack.  They remind me of wonderful autumn days
and the delight of going to the pumpkin patch. I thought I'd share a few with you.

This year I added a few mini pumpkins to the collection. I found the little jewel box pumpkin at the thrift store and that started the mini pumpkin collection. There's also a new metal owl to keep the big green ceramic owl company.  I bought the green owl as a gift for my mother <wink> when I was 15.   

Couldn't resist the little Jack O Lantern with the wire handle! Isn't he just so cute?

                          A few faux pumpkins from the Dollar store.

I wanted a bunch of these white pumpkins but one is all I could afford. And you can see the turkeys got in on the action....they are from Mama's collection. 

A lacy looking pumpkin works well with the retro style pottery.

A reminder of Thanksgiving....... which is coming favorite pumpkin is in this Harvest scene Daddy painted on old barn wood in 1979 (today would have been his 85th birthday).  It's a lovely reminder of the season and of that special person that painted it.  

Pumpkin Time is a wonderful time of the year! I hope you are outside enjoying the weather and perhaps finding a few pumpkins to display in your home.  

Happy Hunting!
