do you wanna come to pumpkin heaven??

If pumpkins are your thing, then just head on down to Fairhope…. We loaded up the two little ones today and headed to one of our farmer’s markets for punkins. Never would I have imagined all the different kinds of pumpkins they would have…. I could have loaded up the entire Tahoe had I had an unlimited pumpkin allowance. However, I was limited to the amount that I could buy, but I still took in ALL the pumpkin eye candy… Looking’s free right?? Here is a sampling of what they had. The cute kids weren’t for sale…. I MAY be talked into letting you borrow them for a small fee…. I would be paying YOU that fee ;)

Essie and Anne Pearce were all over the pumpkins. They were in pumpkin love….So was their mama.


                                                                 YEAH PUNKINS!







Me with my munchkins…..It’s impossible to get my girls to both look at the camera at the same time…..



Our one poor pitiful attempt at a family self portrait…..


We rounded the side of the building, and THIS is what we found on the other side….This is where pumpkin heaven came into play… Look at all the colors and shapes!


Oh. My. Goodness. Look at the blue ones…. I thought I was gonna cry……


How precious is this stack?? The owner sprayed these with high gloss spray to preserve them…. I have a little trick up my sleeve for the ones I bought…..


Pumpkins, and gourds, and more pumpkins OH MY!


Andrew said this one was a Christmas pumpkin…..Reddish orange on one side and green on the other….101_1253

How pretty are these???


We came home with quite the stash….A few originals along with a few special beauties. I’ll show you guys after I’m done prettying up my place with them. It was a gorgeous day outside today….low 60’s. Andrew and I were kinda mad that we missed our long shirt opportunity today. It was supposed to be 68 degrees….Who knew?!?!?!

Have any of you guys seen pumpkins like this in your part of the world?? Any different colors or shapes than I’ve shown you here? I would LOVE to hear about your pumpkin finds and what you’re doing with them…..

Happy Saturday. Roll Tide, peace, and pumpkins!

Your family is just precious and it looks like you had a wonderful time. I can't wait to see how your hutch turns out. By the way, I just posted the results to my Furniture Feature Friday link party won! :) I was so impressed by the guts you displayed taking on that chair. It turned out great! Send me an e-mail to let me know how you'd like the tray...feel free to send a link or some inspiration pictures.
