Timing-Pumpkin Patch

There is a season for everything!  I've heard that phrase or one like unto it over and over again.  I've applied it to my life numerous times, through the heartache of dating (yeah it sucked), the tedious amounts of school work, struggling to make financial obligations, the stifling heat of my kitchen and just wanting to PLAN my life.  Is it so wrong that I want to plan?  Well I've decided lately that I need to let some things go, but others I can plan away.  So as crazy as it may appear I'm not waiting for Fall to officially begin to start to decorate :)  This is one area where I can take CONTROL and put up pumpkins, witches hats, and SPOOKY letters wherever I please. 

Here's what I've made and put up this week:

 Now I wish I could take credit for this cuteness but like most things I get the idea from someone else and then modify it to fit my style.  Maria from You Craft Me Up is the creative genius that owns this one. Check out her blog for instructions on how you make your own.  I decided to stain mine and I lined the pumpkins up-mainly because they were made at the cabin and had to travel home with me and they were less likely to get damaged this way :)


  1. Those are really cute! Don't feel bad, I've been working on pumpkins and fall decor for about 2 weeks. At least we can use the pumpkins through Thanksgiving! =)

  2. Thanks for your comment-that's what I love about pumpkins they last all season :)

  3. This is so cute! I love pumpkins! I love how you curled the wire for the vines.

  4. I love these pumpkins! So cute!
    I'll be featuring these on my blog tomorrow for Three Things Thursday! I hope you'll stop by, check it out, and grab a featured button if you like.


  5. I love how they turned out! And great job chiseling! :) I actually really like them stained- I debated back and forth forever whether to stain mine or not- then after making all my neighbors vote on the matter (they are my design team) :) I decided not. They turned out great! (oh and I think I like the stems left unpainted!) Thanks for the shout out too! :)

  6. Very cute! Planning on making this (or a version of it) with my sister-in-law soon. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Amazing! This blog looks exactly like my old one!
    It's on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Great choice of colors!
