Decorated Pumpkins Round Up

Hello everyone!  How is everything going?  It’s the first week of October which means Halloween is in full effect.

So this is a throwback to the very first round up that I did last year.  Yes, I did a round up last October featuring decorated pumpkins.  So I wanted to show them off again because they are still really cool.

Enjoy!

Summer To Fall Back Porch

Good morning! I posted this a couple of years ago, but we are at that time of year again! This was at our old house, but there are still some great ideas here. Enjoy!

Summer to fall Back Porch Title

Well, I guess it is time to face the fact that Fall is just around the corner :(. I really do love summer! But I like to decorate for Fall too! I decided to do a little decorating on my back porch, not too much fall, but just enough for a transition.

I used more yellows, golds, and oranges to go along with my turquoise and blues.

These chairs came from a friend of mine and I just spray painted them blue. I used a variety of pillows in the yellow and orange colors.

Over near the door I placed two tall windows and a piece of picket fence behind a basket with chrysanthemums and sunflowers.

I also pinned sunflowers onto a string of twine across the window frame that hangs behind the chairs.

We received this half-barrel from a friend a few years ago. I kept thinking i would plant something in it, but with the drought this year, I finally decided to do something different. I had the round piece of wood sitting out in our shop, so I painted it black. My husband added some little boards inside the barrel so the round piece would have something to sit on and would stay balanced if we placed stuff on top. I added a handle on each side. I found an old hula-hoop and cut it open and then cut it to fit around the circle. Then I added rope all the way around until it fit nice and snug inside the barrel rim. I love the rustic look of it!

Transitional Back Patio Succulents 2015

 

I found the little succulents at the .99 Cent Store. Lauren thought her Starbucks cup added so much more to the ambiance! 🙂

I added just a few pumpkins to bring in a touch of fall.

I hope you enjoyed the little tour! I am slowly getting the rest of the house ready for Fall too. How about you? Are you ready for Fall?

It More Pumpkins!

Hey everyone!  I hope everyone is excited for Halloween!  Any awesome costumes?

Well this week the blog is really short, but I wanted to show off the pumpkins I created for the pumpkin decorating contest at work.  It was really simple, but I love it so much!

They are chocolate covered strawberries!

Aren’t they cute?

So that’s it!  Super short and sweet but still lots of fun!

Halloween With a Few of My Favorite Bloggers!

Good morning! Halloween is only a week away! What!?!? How is that possible? I don’t really decorate for Halloween anymore, now that my girls are older, so I thought I would share some ideas from my favorite bloggers. Just click on the pictures to be taken to each ladies blog.

Of course, my first and most favorite blogger, is Karianne from Thistlewood Farms. She shared some big news this past week. She’s moving! She’s moving back to the home she grew up in. I can’t wait to see what she does with it! Here are Karianne’s Four Ideas for Inexpensive Halloween Door Decorations.

Lauren over at Bless’er House has a cool idea for marbled vases. Not too scary…just the right touch!

Kelly, over at My Soulful Home, has this cute mummy candle. Great project for the kids too!

Here is an idea that’s a little more on the creepy side! But doesn’t this look awesome? Angie, over at Knick of Time, has some great recycling ideas. I’m sure you have some spare bottles around!

Well, it’s Halloween, so we need some treats, right? Amy at the Happy Scraps has some cute printables to add to your treats. She has lots of great ideas and I had a hard time just picking one!

This would be a great way to welcome your trick-or-treaters! The pumpkin even lights up! Laura at The Turquoise Home shares all the directions on her blog.

How about some free printables to hang on your walls for Halloween? I love how Katrin displays them in a canvas hung backwards. Perfect touch for Halloween! She even gives you the links for the printables.

These are a Few of my Favorite Things!

Hello everyone!  I hope you are having a wonderful week and are starting to prep for all of the kids that will be coming to your door in 11 days.  Are you ready, because I’m not…

Yeah…I happened to eat all of the candy I have purchased for Halloween.  Not my proudest moment…

Either way, I wanted to show off some of my favorite pumpkins to decorate for Halloween.  Now, if you are like me and absolutely hate gutting pumpkins (Terrible.  Horrible.  No Good.  Very Bad.), sometimes it can be hard to find a good pumpkin decorating idea.  So don’t worry, I have done the homework for you.

Here are 10 of my favorite decorated pumpkins for Halloween!  I will post where you can find them.  Enjoy!
