A Bit More Color

I've decided that my living room needs a punch of color. That's one thing about blogging, when you post pictures of a room you start to notice where you can make improvements. Since my newest project is going in that room, it is the perfect place to add color. I like the paint color that I used on this project.
Speaking of this project,
it's now sitting on my front porch.
I was able to harvest all of these
delightful fall goodies from my garden.
I piled a bunch of the smaller ones into
some antique bowls
that I found years ago at the thrift store.
And the larger ones look great outside.Since we're outside, I'll show you
some more of my Halloween decorations.

Some of you showed a real interest in my old PB light fixture.
I suppose I could sell it.
But I'm warning you, it's pretty heavy and would cost a bit to ship.

I meant to say, that is a bountiful harvest. Very nice!

JuJu and Family said...

Very cool Joy. Since we just moved in July we didn't have the time period to plant pumpkins in time. But we plan on having our own next year. I'm thinking about using the seeds from the pumpkins we bought this year, along with packets to see if we can grow them that way. I want a wide range just like you have. They're beautiful and the best is they are yours.
Take care

Wendy said...

Joy, it all looks wonderful. I love your front porch; thanks for the inspiration! (again)

:-)

Tommy said...

Love all your pumpkins. How great to grow your own!! I'm so impressed!

Still love the light. It's hard to tell size wise - if it would fit in a 12" x 12" x 5-1/2" box it would only be $13. Bigger than that and they charge by weight and it could get expensive I guess. We're on a tight budget in a new home!!

I love all of your decorations.. to cute..

Darlene said...

I LOVE it all!!!!! Loved seeing your front porch all Halloween-ish and inviting!!!!

bec4 said...

What an impressive harvest! I love the pumpkins in the green box, great contrast!

Wendy said...

Ah Joy! You are an inspiration...I love your "grass box" with all your pumpkins in it. It's just BEAUTIFUL!

Debbie @ ribbonwoodcottage.blogspot.com said...

Joy I love all your projects. You should keep an album of pictures with all your amazing ideas and things you have created while blogging and before that too. You are one creative woman!
You go girl. Hey we started a Fall Decorating Group on Flickr where everyone can post their fall pic's. You should post these pictures they are wonderful.
Blessings,
Debbie

I just love looking at all your decorations; especially your mantle! It makes me quite jealous that I have not a bit of creativity in me. :-/ But I sure do love reading your blog and other's because at least then I can copycat. :) Thank you for sharing!

I absolutely LOVE your porch! I love how you displayed the pumpkins! It looks awesome!

Brian and Kirsten said...

You have got to be one of the most creative people in the USA! I love popping in to see what's new - I just wish I could get some of these things done myself! Oh well, at least I can visit you and feed the inspiration.

Deb said...

Love the fun topiary. Great idea, and I really love that green tray with the fallish items. Great centerpiece or accent piece. It would look great in front of a fire place.

AJ said...

I would love to be able to harvest my own pumpkins and gourds! Someday:) Your front porch looks great!

Wow it really looks great! Congrats on all the goodies you got from your garden. It looks amazing!

Loved this tray that you made
back in the spring, but loved
it even more with the pumpkins.
Really enjoy your blog.

Joy, now that's really amazing that you grow your own pumpkins too. Way to go! They sure are cute.

Kacey Randolph said...

Too cool! Love all of the outside decor. So fun and festive but totally classy. Love it! I wouldn't expect to see anything else though.

Darlene - Our Creative Life said...

Wow, you grew your own pumpkins! I need to try that next year! Are they hard to grow? When do I plant to have them in October?

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

I LOVE your decorations - everything looks wonderful. As for the light fixture - I've got my own UPS account so I'm not afraid of a little shipping. LOL

Please tell me you live close to Seattle!...lol I love that planter and the different things you use it for! It looks wonderful on your porch with the pumpkins. My garden for some reason did not produce any pumpkins, but I got some really big pumpking plants! Have a great evening and thanks for sharing your great ideas here, I have been inspired! =O)
