Behind the Scenes : Pumpkin Shopping

Posted by

It is that time of year again in the craft department.  Every fall we end up searching high and low for great pumpkins to inspire us.   Earlier this week  Nick and I went to some of my favorite farm stands in Pennsylvania.  It hasn't been a good year for pumpkins around here but we managed to find some pretty great ones.  Unfortunately it was cold and rainy - but the amazing colors of the pumpkins disguise all of that.

We weren't sure what those green spirally things were but we thought they might be good for something.

At the end of the day there wasn't a space we could fit another pumpkin!
