Nestled in a corner of my little farmhouse kitchen, is a pumpkin patch. There are various colors and sizes, sitting all plump and beautiful ready to bring a little homespun happiness to whoever stops by for coffee and zucchini muffins. Years ago I decided to hand make a lot of decorations for our home. Especially for the holidays. I hand made the four large cloth pumpkins almost 11 years ago. They have been used throughout our home each fall season ever since.
I didn't plan to use them this year, just because I decided to not decorate as much as I have in the past. When I mentioned that I'd left them in the shed, Matthew let me know that he liked them and wanted them in here. Wow, who knew that a boy (now a teen) had really paid attention all these years to some ole' cloth pumpkins made by his mama! Made me feel real good though!
I found these cute little recipe cards last year around this time. They are mainly to hand write my recipes on for anyone that asks me for one. I just thought passing on a recipe on a pretty card would be special. I like receiving hand written recipes from others. I think I found them at either Michael's or Target. When I pulled them out to keep handy throughout fall, it reminded me that I need to look for more. I also have some real pretty Christmas ones. The ceramic pumpkin sittin' in the chair is actually Matthew's cookie jar his grandmother gave him years ago.
I remember telling myself that I wasn't going to decorate that much this year, and there's still plenty more pictures of fall decorating coming up, still got that porch to finish. I'm glad you stopped by to enjoy my posting. Come on back as soon as you can!
