Orange Pumpkins This Year

I found just the right
pumpkin for
my front porch.
 
 
 
Here is my neighbor's
Fall wreath.
She puts decorative
wreaths up on her door
for each season.
 
 
I love this time of year.
 
 
 
I saw this cute owl,
and had to take it home
with me.
I bought it at Michaels
in case you want
to get one for yourself.
 
 
Have a splendid week.

So pretty! I just revived a wreath from last year. I threw a lot of things away last year thinking I would buy new and haven't found things I really loved. I want a "Give Thanks" yard sign - but I may end up having to make one if I get it at all. Maybe next year?

Patty Patterson said...

Oh, and I forgot to ask. How did you do that fits picture. The pumpkin. Is the light bokeh an over lay? Or did you actually shoot it that way? It's beautiful!

This pumpkin is perfect, Sheri. I'm sure it turns into a mini-carriage each night while you are all asleep.

Sheri, I'm with you. I love this time of year, too and the pumpkin for your porch is perfect. Your neighbor's wreath is really pretty, but that cute little owl just stole my heart.

Blessings... :)

Sheri I did Orange pumpkins outside on my steps this year too. Love your pumpkin. i don't know if you get squirrels that chomp on them but we do. So my remedy is to smear the stem and pumpkins with Frank's hot sauce - for white pumpkin use vinegar. The hot sauce is working like magic and I just reapply after a rain.
Your little owl is adorable.

Hi Sheri,
How is your day going? Now this is a perfectly shaped pumpkin you have.
Sometimes it is difficult to find one so so nice...
That little owl is adorable!
Wishing you a beautiful week.. It hit 105 in the shade yesterday, I hope it is not that hot at your home..
love and blessings,
Penny

I was in your country at this time of the year in 2000 and I have never seen so many pumpkins.

Hello pretty lady-I absolutely love the images that you capture! Your pumpkin is picture perfect. It looks like fall has come to your neighborhood--I am so ready. It is HOT HOT HOT here in Chico. I need some chill in the air!
Enjoy your lovely fall days!

Well, if that isn't just the cutest owl! I love your orange decor, sweet friend. I, too, have been drawn to orange this year which is a first. It's so fallish and warm.

Enjoy your week! Love to you!

Oh Sheri, I love what your neighbour did on the door, what a lovely and creative wreath! Your owl is adorable!

Thank you so much for your kind comment on my blog post today, it is always greatly appreciated! When you mentioned my follower link, were you referring to the one for Google/Blogger or the Bloglovin' one? I just noticed I have two new followers today via Google/Blogger, so that must be working! Thank you so much for letting me know.

Oh, and I absolutely love your Autumn colour photos! The leaves are lovely!

Susie said...

Sheri, Your pictures are so good. I would want that little owl to come home with me too. LOL. He will be a good total fall decoration. Blessings, love you, Susie

Sheri, I love your little owl! He is the cutest wise old owl I've ever seen! Your neighbor has just the right touch to brighten any one's day when they come to her door. ♥

Hi Sheri, your pumpkin really is perfect! It is hard to find one that isn't lopsided! Love that your neighbor decorates her door for each season. It gives everyone a little joy:) Very cute owl you have found. This is such a fun season to decorate for! Wishing you a wonderful week, my Dear. Hugs xo Karen

Lovely Octomber!

Good morning my friend! That owl is darling. I ADORE THEM and my mother used to paint a bit and painted one that just stole my heart. Unfortunately, that painting was lost and I wish I still had it. What a delight to see you here on this blustery day. MUCH LOVE!

Patricia said...

I absolutely love the Fall decorations you find in America, Sheri. The owl is so lovely, and I would so like to have a wreath like that. I would have to make it myself here! No matter, it is Spring, but I will put out my small collection of paper pumpkins just before Halloween. Themeing is always fun.
Have a nice week. xox

The owl is so cute, I'd like one please.
Fall is such dramatic season, with its colours and soft burnish light.
Wishing you a wonderful week dear Sheri.

Hugs,

Good Afternoon Dearest Sheri!
I am certainly loving your Fall essence and oh the sweet little owl is such a cute addition to you Autumn collection. Owls are one of my favorite birds. I remember growing up in Idaho and seeing them in the tall Cottonwood Trees.
I have missed you and even though my time in Sacramento was so special it is nice to catch up with my dear friends.
Love,
Jemma

Your orange pumpkin looks perfect on your porch Sheri… I'm loving orange pumpkins too… so classic , but I do love some of the other colors too. I guess I love it all…
XOXO Mary

Gypsy Heart said...

Everything's so pretty! I love seeing the beautiful colors when the leaves change. We don't get that much here.

Your neighbor's wreath is great! I normally have one for each season but not this year...just a little witch with Trick or Treat. :)
