Pumpkin Picking 2014 and The Fall Porch




 Good Morning ! Yesterday was one of my favorite days of the year ! Pumpkin Picking Day ! We go to a strawberry farm where you pick a carload of pumpkins .. So fun !
 Last year I pinned this Welcome sign on Pinterest ..I went to Michaels last year to buy the letters but it was just too expensive to make. I read the blog post this year and she said she got the letters at Hobby Lobby .. So I went to Hobby Lobby and on sale the letters were only $13.00 to make the sign:)
 I used spray paint ..my daughter actually painted them for me .. I used Rustoleum Metalic paint and primer in flat Soft Iron color .They look almost wrough iron like. It worked great and I used one of our old craft show display shelves to hot glue  them on . I love the way it turned out !

 On the porch ..there are mums in galvanized buckets and apple baskets ..gourds ,cornstalks.. pumpkins and vintage wood crates.


 We picked 108 pumpkins yesterday plus 4 garbage bags of gourds and have them displayed all around our flower beds..None of my favorite pink pumpkins were found by us yesterday ! Lots of blue and white ones ..
 My $3.00 estate sale rusty wheelbarrow is holding mums and pumpkins and gourds..



 My husband had a new post built for the front porch .. Before it was just a plain little post ..Now it is massive ..We need to find some skinny long house numbers for the front of it .



 I still have my sunflower wreath on the door and I am leaving it until the Halloween wreath goes up..

 This limelight hydrangea is such a pretty dark pink now ..Love it and can't wait until it gets bigger !



 I got those 2 galvanized buckets at the Goodwill last week $2.oo each ..The top one is sitting in a picnic hamper from the flea market. The scarecrows were made by me ..they were from my craft show days and were such big sellers !




Thanks so much for stopping by ! I would love for you to follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest ..all the links are in the sidebar !
Linking to these fabulous parties !

WOW!!! WOW!! WOW!!! You have *really* OUTDONE yourself, what a festive display for Fall. I absolutely love the welcome sign you made, I may have to copy this idea. As for the pumpkins, I love-love-love the arrangement around your flower beds, seriously, this is a fabulous idea!
The whole thing works, and works well...magazine worthy my friend! :) xo, Liz

Betty from My Irish Cottage Home said...

WOW, I so envy you. Your porch and yard looks beautiful. I need you to come over and do mine. HA! HA!

Julie Corbisiero said...

WOW is right, I love the way you decorated the inside and outside of your house! You are all ready for fall. Thanks for the tour. Enjoy your Sunday.

Kris said...

Just as your pumpkin picking day is a favorite for you, this post, is a favorite for me! Last year I didn't have to buy pumpkins, because I grew so many. This year, I got ONE!!! It is still hot here, so I put fake mums out until it cools some more. I will begin to decorate my porch this week. I finally made some sweater pumpkins last night. I will be making more today. They were fun!
I love, love, love your porch, and your rusty wheelbarrow of gourds! And I would love to have bought one of your darling scarecrows too!

The house looks awesome. Fall at its best. Great job.

Barbara F. said...

Fabulous! I wish I was able to shop at your old craft fairs!

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

WOW, I love all the pumpkins lining the flower beds. The cheapest pumpkin I can find here is $4.98 at Walmart. I would have to get a loan from the bank to buy that many pumpkins LOL. Love your sign also you did a wonderful job on it.
The porch is great also.
Have a great week.

Your home, porch and pumpkins lining your flower bed and post that your hubby made are magnificent. Also love your WELCOME sign and your Mr. Scarecrow. Everything says Fall at Priscillas house.
I feel like Mary though.. Would sure have to win the lottery to have that many pumpkins at my house..
Enjoy the coming months. I feel they are the best time of the year.

Priscilla,
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment about my Porch! I really enjoyed decorating it this year because I missed this Season last year because of our Remodel...
LOVE your porch!! So many pretty things! Love the wicker suitcase!! I have one just like it that I may use in the house now .....
And each year, I love seeing your flower beds trimmed with all the pumpkins!! What a statement that makes!!
I will be by to visit later, maybe at work. Sometimes, I can't comment on certain blogs from work but I will be back to check out your other posts. I am working in the LR now and doing a Fall tree.....

Hugs,
Deb

OMG, this is incredible, simply gorgeous, looks like pumpkins are growing from every corner of your property, I just love it!!!
Everything looks magazine worth, like the Autumn images we see in magazines at this time of year in the USA.

Love ALL your pumpkins! I am wondering where this pumpkins patch is where you got to pick your own pumpkins and so many!! Do you mind sharing your Pumpkin Patch location?
Thx

Cristina Garay said...

Wow, it all looks beautiful!

Marsha Splenderosa said...

Lordy, my lady, if you were close to Houston I would have to come over to see this for myself. Wonderful X10

Jeanette said...

Wow! Wow! It looks so amazing..seeing it on instagram is so not the same as seeing it this way. Its just gorgeous!!

Angelina B. said...

I just love your outdoor decor! I can't believe how many pumpkins you picked!! The porch looks really great too!

Julie Reinwald said...

Your landscaping is gorgeous! And all those pumpkins make quite a statement!

Alycia Nichols said...

Aside from an actual pumpkin patch, I have never seen so many pumpkins in one place at once!!! What a fabulous display! I'm really impressed at your tenacity in finding and picking all those pumpkins and gourds. Your backs must be sore, sore, sore!!!

I really like the wheelbarrow display. That gives me inspiration to wheedle the old wheelbarrow from my husband's grasp and make something fun for the side yard. (He doesn't even do yard work! Why does he need a wheelbarrow, a riding lawn mower with all the attachments, a push mower, a weed whacker, etc., etc., etc.??!??!!)

Visiting from Shirley's Housepitality Design. Enjoy the fall!

C.D. Loken said...

Debbiedoos said...

Carol said...

Such an incredible sight!! Just love this post :)

Jann Olson said...

I am always amazed at your 'pumpkin land'! I bet you are the talk of the neighborhood. The welcome sign is perfect because your home definitely says, 'welcome'! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
hugs,
Jann

Jeanne Selep said...

Awesome and lovely. If you don't mind sharing, how much does it cost to fill a car? Around here (suburban Milwaukee, WI, USA) one pumpkin can cost $3-$8 each.

Lulu said...

Wow , you've created your own pumpkin patch for sure! I would love to have been turned loose in a pumpkin patch to pick my own. As far as I'm concerned one can never have too many pumpkins. Your whole creation is terrific.

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

Happy to feature you at our party this morning! Thanks so much for sharing!

kitty said...

I made your crocheted pumpkins and they turned out so cute! The pumpkin is on my post with Pumpkin Spice Blondie Bars.
