Pumpkins...It's time

I don't care if it is still September, I'm putting out the pumpkins!I made these pumpkins from old farm fence posts. They were cut and the tops were angled by the farmer. I simply painted them orange, gave them each their own unique personalities with black, red and white paint and added a stem (cut out of pine). A little raffia, some leaves and of course a "scary spider" to finish them off.
These are my favorite Halloween decorations! And I bought pumpkin placemats at Pier 1 Imports and tied them onto the back of my wicker chairs.

I just love the warm colors of autumn!
Happy decorating...I'm on my way up to the Adirondacks to "watch the leaves turn" :-)
