Pumpkins on Parade

I'm joining Beth's Pumpkin Party.

Nothing says fall like pumpkins. We use them to bring warm autumnal color to our homes, we carve funny or scary faces in them for Halloween, and we use them as ingredients for sweet and savory dishes.

adds warm color to the living room decor.

The Dollar Tree is a great source for pumpkins.

My Mumkins are finally blooming.

The jack -o'lantern chuckled
Then winked his funny eye,
"I would rather be a pumpkin-face
Than be inside a pie!"

Jolly wolly pumpkin face
You're happy tell us why.
I'd rather be a pumpkin face
And not a pumpkin pie!

  3. A Pumpkin Party! How cool! You remind me that I need to put a few out. I'm feeling fall but so far haven't done as much decorating as I should have.

    Great mosaics! Halloween will be here before you know it!

  12. This is such a fun and colorful post! I've always thought pumpkins are so cheerful. I love the children's rhyme -- saving this so I can recite it to my grandson :)

  18. A great pumpkin post and I love your mumkins!!

    We don't seem to celebrate Halloween as much here as in the USA, possibly as November 5th Guy Fawkes day is a bigger thing here, for fireworks etc.. I will compose a post as to why we do it nearer the time.

  19. What cute Fall pumpkin decorations. I think my grandkids would love the float the best - it's very cool. My senior mom would love the mumkins for sure. We'll have to add that to the gardening list for next year. And I loved the cute little autumn scarecrow in a pumpkin by the basket. Very cute pumpkins all, for a delightful fall pumpkin party!

  21. Hi La, I absolutely adore your mumkins! They are a stunning accent to your entry. Like your mosaic too - very pretty. The basket of pumpkins and gourds looks nice on your coffee table. I really like the title of your blog - it's nice to be able to blog about a potpourri of things! Thanks for joining the Pumpkin Party, La!
    Blessings, Beth

  24. Hey La! Great pumpkins! I see we have a few dollar tree duplicates, love that store don't you? I really love your mums in the jack-o-lanterns! I have done that before too with the jacks on my steps. It's nice to do since the mums are so short lived and you don't have to worry about buying pots for them. That is one big pumpkin there at the parade. Thanks for sharing, I hope you have a Happy Halloween!
