PUMPKIN PALOOZA

I got a little carried away at the pumpkin patch this year...

These fabulous warty pumpkins were originally orange, a color which is not really a fav here in the land of SWEET PEA. They got a little facelift with a can of spray paint.





This one has a blue green look which I found so pretty.



Gotta tuck some white baby boos in here and there...



I fell hard for these warty dried gourds.



This is one of my favs and is a very dark gray green.



I bought two of these large white pumpkins in Texas.



Never too many boos...



And just when I thought I had found the most delightful pumpkins at the patch...

I saw these two and my heart melted into a puddle of pumpkin soup...


Jax and Auriana, my grand~boos, at the patch.

What sweet little grand-boos. Love all your pumkins. I had some of those blueish green ones last year and loved it. I didn't spend much money this year on pumpkins....gotta save it for more "junk". LOL

Those last two pumpkins are the cream of the crop girl...they are beautiful!!!!
However...I'm still finding it hard to believe you have grand-boos! How can that be since you're 28???

Have a wonderful (non-orange) Halloween!!!
