For this girl, its been a slow transition into fall. While I love what the season has to offer, I hated to see summer go. I’ve been taking it one week at a time. I’ve finally found canned pumpkin to begin baking. Since, picking up several cans, I’ve made pumpkin chocolate chip muffins and pumpkin soup. This weekend I plan to make my first pot of chili.
Baking aside, I have yet to decorate for fall! Today, sweet E bought a pumpkin for our house. While Saturday will be full of football and Oktoberfest, I hope to sit down and jazz up a pumpkin or two to carry us through the month (and make our steps look lovely)!
I’m usually a carver, but am thinking I should spread my creative wings and see what I can do. Some of my favorite ideas include white pumpkins and the use of non-traditional fabrics, glitter and beading!
|This may be a little adventurous for me, but aren’t they LOVELY?!|
|Pantyhose? I think I can manage this!|
|Silver spray paint seems easy enough!|
|What girl doesn’t love a little sparkle?!|
What are your plans for the weekend? Do you have any fall recipes I should try? Share your pumpkin decorating ideas! I need all the help I can get.
Until next time, may your evening be full of magnolias, bourbon and the joys of FALL!
