Fall Decor and Becky's first Blissful Whites Wednesday!!!

 Fall is one of those seasons that I look forward to every year. It is the time when the heat finally begins to fade here in the Arizona desert. Mornings and Evenings begin to cool down and I finally get to sleep with the windows open. Unfortunately it occurs rather late in the year for us.  Temps have only just begin to dip below 90 for the daytime highs, so it can be hard to really get in the spirit and go all out for Fall decorating. I do however have my weaknesses. White pumpkins being among them.

 It was great to bring out the handmade pumpkins I made a couple of years ago. Bringing out the old decorations is like saying hello to old friends. If you would like to make some yourself, you can find a tutorial for them here.

One of the things I'm so happy about is the recent availability of other varieties of pumpkins here in the valley. In addition to white, we can also those yummy grey green pumpkins too!

Well, you can see I don't go too crazy with fall decor here, but I love the little that I do.

***********************
As many of you know, Kathleen over at Faded Charm has retired her White Wednesday party. We all miss her party very much, so I am very happy to tell you (if you don't already know) that Becky over at Timewashed has picked up the reigns and will continue to throw her own version, called Blissful Whites Wednesday! Please pop over there and join in on the fun. I know she would love to have you!

I think you did just fine, Karen! I kept it pretty simple this year myself. Kind of hard with the warm temps. We aren't as hot as you but have been having some 76 degree days. I love the pumpkins you made.

BECKY said...

I have a weakness for those yummy white pumpkins, too! Actually, I love all pumpkins...especially any that don't look like the typical pumpkins!!

Thanks so much for the help getting the word out for Blissful Whites Wednesday, Karen! You're such a sweetheart!! Did you ever get my email about the button? I'll resend it if you didn't. :o)

Hugs to you, my friend!
Becky

Beautiful Karen, I love your white pumpkins! Your fall decorations are perfect.
It is finally cooling off here in NC. It can be very very hot even in October. I love it when it cools off.

Love your pretty white pumpkin displays!

I've always loved these pumpkins you made. I tried last year and let's just say it didn't go well. I'll just have to scatter a few real ones here and there. I couldn't find any of the white little baby boo ones this year:-(

Well, you may not do much but you certainly do more than I do anymore. I love decorating our front porch and door but don't do much else. Too lazy to pull it out. What a shame!

Always enjoy the charm of your blog.

Createology said...

Your ethereal white pumpkin decor is heavenly. Thank you for sharing your link to the pumpkin tutorial. I adore how you have made them. Blissful Creating...

Charlene said...

Hey sweetie! Just back from Tennessee & trying to catch up on a bit of blog reading. Are you loving your "NEW" kitchen? I commented on it when you did your post. SOooooooooooo pretty. Love your white pumpkins too. I didn't put out much Fall or Halloween this year as we've had so much going on with all the remodeling & some travel. Plus have BIG Christmas plans so fall will be packed up early & Santa out on Thanksgiving afternoon. It takes me longer each year.... what's that about???? MISS YOU!!!! Let's talk soon. Hope you'll stop by for a visit soon. HUGS!

I wish you could come decorate my house, it's just piles of stuff everywhere! Hugs to the fuzzy faces!xoxox-cin
