Cottage Halloween Decor...

No orange pumpkins here... but if pink with white polka dots is to your liking, or maybe blue, green, or creamy white, you've come to the right place!


I'm happy to report that the photo pumpkins I made last year survived just fine after being stored in the backyard shed since last October (through the New England extremes of a bitter cold winter and hot, humid summer)...


These three photo pumpkins are being displayed on the little 3-tier garden table I brought in from the deck....


Spotty enjoyed a warm afternoon in the bay window yesterday while keeping the lamp bandit company...


Patience is sporting a pumpkin on top of her lampshade for Halloween...


... and some of my other fabric pumpkins from Ronda's Tempting Textiles shop are lining the entry steps of our little split level cottage...

So that's the extent of the Halloween decor inside the house this year. If you'd like to make your own photo pumpkins, here are the step-by-step instructions from last year...
Hope you're all enjoying the beautiful month of October...
Donna (who is still pining for summer while enjoying autumn)

No orange pumpkins indoors for me either. I do the colorful leaves like in your previous post and that is enough for me.
Living it up at Lakewood,

Love the photo pumpkins, Donna! What a great idea - and the line of pumpkins going up the stairs is so charming!

I'm glad to hear someone else stores things in the shed - we have an ongoing mouse problem there - so I store things in big plastic bins and pray that they stay safe! (There's only so much storage space in our little cottage!)

Photo pumpkins, brilliant! My decor usually gets fried in the attic, not ideal in the desert sun for sure!

I didn't think a pink polka dotted pumpkin was my cup of tea until I saw how cute your's is, Donna!

Love all the pumpkins lined up on teh stairs too!
