Heirloom

Mr. Blue Eyed Yonder and I picked out some of the most gorgeous heirloom pumpkins to display around our front door this year. We went to the farmer’s market with the full intention of buying regular bright orange pumpkins, but after spying these beauties, we couldn’t resist.
I am just fascinated by the intricate colored veins of this pumpkin. I love getting real close to it and just staring.

Now, call me crazy, but I can’t help but think that the stem of this pumpkin looks just like Roadrunner (the cartoon). I see the neck, eyes, beak and even feathers on its head. Somebody please tell me you see it  too.

In addition to the pumpkins, we added another ‘heirloom’ piece to our display – a vintage black and white chippy paint chair. I bought this chair during our trip to Virginia. I’m sure people thought I was crazy for buying a chair with no seat and the roughest paint job ever, but it’s perfect to me. I love looking at the worn layers of paint. It’s so beautifully distressed. I wouldn’t change one thing about it. I don’t even think I want to add a seat.

I’d love to see what fun decorations you have out this Fall. If you’ve posted pictures of your fancy-work online, shoot me the link in the comment section.

Have a safe and happy weekend!

    Megan – Woo-hoo! I'm not the only one. Now that I see it, I can't look at it and see anything else.

    That pumpkin is gorgeous! Which farmer's market? The Dekalb? And I CAN see the roadrunner LOL That chair would be perfect for sitting that pumpkin on – or putting a pot of flowers down in the hole.

    WC – We got the pumpkin at a small farmer's market in Roswell (don't remember it's name), we usually pass it on our Home Depot runs. So glad you see the roadrunner too, haha! Maybe I'm not crazy after all.

    I did think about putting a mum in the hole. I just need to figure out a way to keep it from falling all the way through. Great ideas, thanks for sharing! :-)
