Here a Pumpkin, There a Pumpkin

It's Fall! Well, sort of. We don't have Fall weather here, but it is mid-September. It is officially Fall in a week. And it is the start of Fall Nesting over at The Inspired Room today!

That means it's time to get out the pumpkins. Just a couple of decorative pumpkins. Like 30. Is that...a lot enough??

Um, yeah. Somebody around here has developed a slight obsession with all things pumpkin. :) And I blame it on blogging!! I didn't own any of these before I started blogging! And actually, it just might be Melissa's fault {The Inspired Room} as she inspired me a few years back to start decorating for the Fall season - though I started reluctantly.

This little family of pumpkins will soon be split up to decorate several spots around the house. I don't always do the same thing, but this is one spot a few years ago...

And then there are pumpkin recipes, like Pumpkin Bread, Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bread, No-Bake Pumpkin Pie, Quick Pumpkin Pudding, Pumpkin Dessert, Pumpkin Dip, Pumpkin Truffles and more {find them all in my Recipe Index}. While we're on that subject - where are the cans of pumpkin?? I've been having a hard time getting them and the ones I have purchased have been very expensive!

Don't forget about real pumpkin, of course! I like to decorate with a few real pumpkins around the house in addition to the decorative ones. Once in a while I manage to actually roast a pumpkin to use in recipes. And we do try to get to a pumpkin patch if possible. Here's a pic of my son at a pumpkin patch when he was 5...sigh...oh the cuteness!

And then there's the time I wrote a poem about pumpkins. {Told ya about the slight obsession, remember?} It's not a very good poem, but it does make me laugh. Here ya go...

Awwww...poor little pumpkin - LOL. :)

Are you ready for Fall? Do you love pumpkins like I do?

Don't forget to stop by The Inspired Room to enjoy her Falling For Fall series - starting today and running for 31 days!

Have a blessed day friends! And please be nice to those pumpkins! :)


  1. I love pumpkins and fall decor. I just don't have a lot of it. One of these days I should really decorate my home for other seasons besides Christmas!

  2. Fall is my favorite season. And I love pumpkins too. Mostly pumpkin baked goods and lattes but I also do some pumpkin decorating. Fall and Christmas are the only two things I decorate for. :)

  3. Um did my comment just miraculously disappear? Cause I KNOW I commented yesterday on this. I even left a link to my scarecrow post because this reminded me of my little obsession with scarecrows. Hmmmm.....weird.
    Big I'm sure the hug I gave you yesterday was much better than today size hugs to you.
    Love ya!
