Pumpkin Time!

Ok, I have pulled myself out of my funk. I had my pity party, I blogged about it, and now it’s time to move on and take action. So that’s exactly what I did! Thanks for listening to me the other day – I really appreciate everybody’s comments, bigtime!

I decided on Monday that there was to be no more moping around and that there was no reason I couldn’t accomplish some of the things that I wanted to accomplish. So I put Jude in the car and we made a day of it (er, at least up until naptime, that is). We went all around and got some fun decorations and then we had lunch at my most favorite bagel cafe near our house. And after much building-up to Jude about going to visit the pumpkin patch, we drove up and Jude freaked out. He was really amped about  the pumpkins and went ballistic, running around the tent. It was really fun to see. So we came away with a bunch of gourds and a couple of large pumpkins for the front porch. Simon had also bought some really fun pumpkins as well as some lovely happy mums.

Internet, I can’t help myself. I just love me some glitter. Glitter glitter GLITTER!

I’m in love with our big monogram pumpkin on the front porch. There is glitter EVERYWHERE and I really need to sweep the excess off the front porch.

Then. I took myself to Hobby Lobby and I perused some of the fall offerings. Almost all of the Halloween/Thanksgiving stuff was 50% off, so I was able to get a lot of bang for my buck. I bought these neat little berry things in fall colors and put them in a big vase on the dining room table.

Once again with the glitter. Just a tiny bit of sparkle.

It looks really dramatic under the spotlights in our dining room, especially at night. I need to get a bag of beans or something to weight it all down in the bottom of the vase. All this for, I kid you not, $15.

Some smaller, glittered pie pumpkins. A big white funkin that I haven’t decided what to do with yet. And Jude’s gourds and tiny pumpkins.

Whew. I feel so much better. It’s funny how a little glitter and a few pumpkins raised my spirits.

Oh, did I ever show you what I did with all the photos from the formal (aqua colored) living room? When I repainted, I ended up moving all the wall art into the family room and I’m pretty happy with the result. I still have nothing up on the walls in the formal living room, but I’m just waiting for the right thing.

Finally, my happy little club chair where I do the majority of my blogging from. Comfiest chair in the house!


Bye! Thanks for stopping in!
