It’s the gray pumpkin Charlie Brown!

So last year I was totally smitten with these gray pumpkins I saw in a store in Laguna. I had never seen gray pumpkins before and was fascinated by their beauty. Fast forward to this year and I knew that I must have one to cherish for my own. I stopped by Roger’s Gardens (there’s always something beautiful to see there) and lo and behold- the had a gray pumpkin bonanza! When I was a kid, my parents would take me to the pumpkin patch. (Halloween was a big deal to me) I totally had childhood flashbacks as I inspected each pumpkin looking for just the right size, shape, and finally picked one. I also snatched up a few little white mini pumpkins and one ochre colored little spooky looking gourd. I was thinking maybe I could create a little modern fall centerpiece for my dining table. here’s how it turned out…It will be a nice transition before I bust out the holiday decorations from last year… are any of you adding any fall decor into your home?

    In a late night search for fall decorating inspiration for my mostly blue/beach themed house, I came across another blog (katiedid: Fall Decor) which showed a picture of your centerpiece here. So, I came to your blog, searched through fall of 2008 and found this post!! Who knows, you may never see this comment since it's on a post almost 2 years old!! Just wanted to say I love, love, love your idea here and will now be on the hunt for these pumpkins! I'd been planning to paint some of those tacky orange plastic pumpkins from the dollar store (which I still might!) but I really want to find one of those blue/grey pumpkins! I'm getting a head start, but better to be early than late! Here's hoping I can find some of these in TN!!
