It has been so hard to give up Summer!  I think Mother Nature knows this and so she gives us some fun called Halloween.  You can find this vintage Jack-o-Lantern at  CottonCreekCottage  on Etsy
And along with the fun she gives us glorious colors as the trees get ready for their winter slumber.
And inside, I have done a little bit of decorating for us to enjoy.
The darling little votive lamp is a from my daughter a few years back ~
Chenille pumpkins from my good friends shop in California several years ago ~
And this cutie is made from a coconut that was carefully hollowed out.  Miss A. one of our granddaughters gave this to a few years back when they were visiting a pumpkin patch and the owner gave it to her....it is one of my favorites because it is so unusual.

This is my bit of pumpkin sharing and now I am going to go to visit BEVERLY   to enjoy all the blogs celebrating pink and Fall!  Hope to see you there!

The coconut is unique! I am not ready to give up Summer either but I guess we're being forced to. That's why most of my pumpkins are pink and white! LOL. Hope you have a wonderful weekend and Happy Pink Saturday, Jil!

Blessings,
Sandi

Oh Jill, I so agree with you...summer is hard to give up. I literally cry when the cover goes over the pool. Silly I know, but it means the end of summer to me. But I like how you talk about being given Fall to help us. :) Love all your punkins! And how cool you knew the Monster Mash guy! HPS xoxo

Thanks for sharing your Pumpkins and More Pumpkins for Pink Saturday. What a neat collection you have and all it seems have special memories attached to them. I have never seen a coconut pumpkin...very different.

Thanks for visiting CITexas Gal, and ya know Jil, it's not to late to learn crochet...I'm much better at it as an adult than I was as a child. Just think how cute those Pumpkin Coasters would be in Pink...mmm I think I'll make a couple...LOL!!! Happy Pink Saturday!!!

Hi Jil, For us summer is still hanging during the day with cool evening. I know we will have to say goodbye to this soon too.
But we are ready after our very hot summer here in Texas.

Love your decor for the season. Your fabric pumpkins are darling and the coconut is darling on the step.

Thank you for stopping by and your kind comment and giveaway entry.
Have a great week.
Hugs, Celestina Marie
