Have You Been to a Pumpkin Patch?
Pumpkin patches are all over Bloggetyville lately. Have you noticed? Children and their parents are looking for the perfect pumpkin. Of course, perfect is in the eye of the beholder. It might be a huge one, or a little one; a skinny one, or a fat one; a bright orange one, or an almost white one. Everyone has their own idea about what is perfect! After you find the perfect pumpkin you have to decorate it. Then the fun really begins!

I haven't been to visit a pumpkin patch this year. Actually, it's been several years since I picked out a pumpkin for carving. However, I realized that I have my very own--albeit small--pumpkin patch.

Come, take a tour with me around my little "punkin patch."

Here's a cute little vintage Jack 'o' Lantern that I got in the Holiday swap at PEA's this year. Cute little guy isn't he? Standing watch over some tissues--just in case you might need one! They have jacks on them, too!

The guest bathroom would not be well dressed without a little seasonal deco. Right? This fellow as been with me for several years--gift from a friend. He looks sort of friendly/scary when he has a little tea light candle burning inside.

Time for a refreshment break! The little Jack that is standing watch over the cookies is a teacher gift I received in 1987--It says so on the back. Oh! You say you don't see him? Look carefully--He's there right behind the Chocolate Chip Cookies! Better watch out when you get one--He looks a little sneaky!

Now for some beauty! I believe these are the pick of the patch! The floral wreath was a recent gift from a dear friend. I had the glass vase and the small pumpkins and gourds already. I thought they made a good combination for the dining room table.

Thanks for visiting my little pumpkin patch! What kind of pumpkins do you have this year? If you don't have a patch we can fix that. You can have some fun with this one!
