Signs of Fall: White Pumpkins

Pumpkins are one of my favorite things about fall. I love them in all shapes, sizes and colors...

..but the first ones that find their way home with me are always the white pumpkins-- ghosts of the bright orange ones that come later in the month to punctuate our front steps and porch.

As soon as they start haunting the corner grocery, I bring home arms full of little ghost pumpkins to fill two white urns in our living room bookcases.

You can just make them out, reflected in the mirror above. And there they'll stay until after Thanksgiving when they are switched out with mercury glass ornaments.

As the month goes on, they turn up in more places in the house...at the center of the table, blended with our collection of white Ironstone, decorating the mantle.

  3. Christina, I always get them at Bert's -- but I made a pretty good dent in their supply, so if you were looking there, they could be out at this point!

  4. Jeanne ~ I love seeing how you fill your home with the little white darlings. They look wonderful with your setting. I love seeing all of the different breeds of pumpkins that are available each year.

  6. This is sooo funny! Me, too! The white pumpkins that is. I've had a little bowl of them in my living room and have just started putting up Halloween (b/c that's what I do...celebrate every holiday) and my outdoor plants still look so good, I hated to take them out and replace with a bunch of pumpkins.

    But, I'll be layering it all on, as the month goes on.

    Happy Monday, friend!
