A "Real" Pumpkin Farm

Hi Friends! 
My favorite month of October is coming to an end.
A couple of weeks ago, the "hubs" and me jumped into our car and 
drove north an hour or so to  
Gordon Skagit Farms
I have a lot of photos to share with you, so I won't bore you with 
too many more words.  I think this place speaks for itself. 
What a fun time we had that day! 

This was my first time visiting a "real" pumpkin patch/farm, and 
I had to laugh when I remembered 
living in Las Vegas and how excited I would get 
when the dusty, vacant lot next to the shopping center set up a 
pumpkin patch.  
You'd be out there, breaking a sweat picking out a pumpkin
because the desert hot sun was still in the 80's! Lol
WOW...things have certainly changed and I'm loving it! 

Hope you had a fun and lovely October too! 
Thanks for dropping by, and
have a safe and Happy Halloween! 


Decorating for Autumn

Hi Friends! 
Have you started decorating for Autumn yet? 

This year, I just had to try using one of my crocheted doilies to decorate 
a pumpkin. 

I'm very happy with how this one turned out. 
I applied the doily simply using a glue stick around the edges because 
this pumpkin is real and won't last forever, so I should be able to salvage the 
crochet piece to use with something else later. 

Do you guys know this plant below? 
Chinese Lantern.
I never heard of these until I moved to Seattle, and now I look 
forward to them every fall.  
So much fun to decorate with! 

There's so many unusual pumpkins out there, and I 
loved these tiny orange ones.  Didn't take any time at all to 
crochet a decoration for this baby. 

I thought this was a very interesting one too and ties in the light 
pumpkins with the orange ones. 

Right now, I have some placed on our mantel.  The two little ones are not 
real but I wanted to give them as gifts. 

I still can't get enough of these mo…
