We all know I have an unhealthy relationship with fall.  Love it.  Stalker kinda love.

So it's a natural extension that I am fascinated by the autumnal fruits of the earth.  Well, veggies I guess... but you get the idea.  I love pumpkins, squashes, those little baby gourds with the bumps all over, you name it.

Much to Tony's chagrin, we have 8 pumpkins in our midst now.  My next dream is to actually grow the things like Kim, but until then - I am happy to support local farmers by buying their fall-tastic wears.

I got five baby white pumpkins at the Cotton Pickin' Fair.  They are totally cuter than baby kittens.  My mom was kind enough to buy me this lovely Cinderalla pumpkin too.  It is beautiful.  It's inside our house, because it's waaaay too pretty to sit outside.

Our local fire department sells regular pumpkins this time of year, so we headed over with Mikey and Kacy to grab a few.  Aren't they adorable??  Yes, M&K are, of course, but I was referring to the pumpkins.


  1. A woman after my own heart! Please share which local markets you visit...I sadly have not been able to find any :(

  2. I love em too. We're heading to the punkin patch this weekend to pick up a few or 12. Oh and to prop the babe up against a giant gourd.

  3. LOVE pumpkins (and fall, as you know:)!!!

    Cannot get enough of them... long stems ones, Cinderella ones (got one from Trader Joes!), little round, white, green, 'defect' ones (those make the best jack o' lanterns in my opinion), tall, short, bumpy gourds... you get the picture.

    We're headed to the pumpkin patch this weekend, and as always, I'll have to restrain myself:).

  4. O, pumpkins, how I love thee.

    And, that green yellow one? KILLING ME. Throw it out back at the end of the season and see if it grows next year. That would be amazing to have a bunch of.
