The Great Pumpkin & Scale

Pumpkins are so fun...especially the wee-little ones. This year I didn't splurge on a huge pumpkin due to cost and space, but instead went for several small ones placed around the house. They also look great in this over-sized vintage table scale. The scale's light blue color creates a wonderful contrast to the bright orange pumpkins. I love this scale and it's just waiting for a perfect spot in my future awesome house!

When it comes to picking out pumpkins my Mom always says to pick one with a good and strong stem...enjoy the thick and curly accents of your pumpkin...plus it adds a touch of texture.

I love miniature pumpkins - they're soo cute..! Great idea with the scales, So understated and all the more classy..!
I have baby pumpkins around the open fireside along with pine cones, a basket chestnuts and an old pitcher with autumn coloured branches from the garden...

I know Christmas is a long way off; but, I just couldn't wait...
I'm in the midst of gift-wrapping an early, early Christmas present for all my delightful favourite bloggers - it'll be ready this evening if you'd like to pop by my blog and pick it up..:)

I love scales like that. Way better than for the body. I have 2 scales that I just adore. And pumpkins are the cutest thing ever. Makes me want pie.

i love the scale as much as, or maybe even more than, little pumpkins.

Great photos and awesome scale! Pumpkins make me so happy!

(Years ago when we lived in the city and had a postage stamp sized yard, a small pumpkin plant began to grow from our compost pile in the back corner. We just let it grow, and before we knew it our whole backyard was a delightful pumpkin patch. Our one daughter was three at the time, and everyday she would go out to sweetly tend to the pumpkins, making special pumpkin food out of mud, and feeding each one!)

I haven't picked up any pumpkins either..., but have an entire room devoted to that cheerful color of bright and warm orange!

I love these pics! And the scale. I took pictures of a couple of antique scales at a yard sale the other week -- they were somewhat "fancy" (as was the yard sale) so I was afraid to ask the price. For fear I'd buy one (both?) and miss my mortgage payment. :-) I have to remember to post the pics, though.

I love your Mom's advice! Tell her thanks, from me ;-)

Those pumpkins and the scale are too cute!

Joanna Goddard said...

oh how lovely!

I used to pick the perfectly cute and symmetrical ones, but in my older age I prefer ones that are a bit different and quirky, maybe even with imperfections on them.

I love pumpkins!

I waited too long for pumpkins and so nearly won the bad mother of the year award by coming home without. The children were ecstatic when we found mid-sized (as opposed to the gigantic ones they usually want)at a roadside pumpkin patch.
