Friday was such a beautiful day, I decided to go to the fruit market and pick up some decorations for the potting table on the porch.
Pumpkin hunting is quite a process, so I like going by myself.
When looking for pumpkins...I like to find just the right ones that will stack correctly.
The base pumpkin must have the perfect shape to sit squarely on a surface, have a nice squatty shape around, yet have a semi-flat top for the next pumpkin to rest upon.
Oh yes...the colors MUST be pale, or white.
I don't usually get a traditional orange pumpkin.
I prefer the Cinderella shaped ones, that are a shade of very pale blue, or slate grey.
The pink, peanut pumpkins are adorable...don't you agree?
Then....there are the gourds.
They must be unique in shape, and color design.
The hubs tends to mock me in my quest for Fall decorations.
He says I'm a conte-sewer of pumpkin picking.
That might be the reason I go by myself when shopping for decorations.
It doesn't bother me (much). When I return home with my trunk load of goodies, and start to put everything together on the potting table, then stand back and look at what God created for us to enjoy..... I smile.
All of the extra time it takes to find "just the right one" is so worth it.
At least it is to this pumpkin picking conte-sewer.
