Decorative Pumpkins, who would have thought they could be so pretty?

My daughter Ashley and I email each other decorating ideas, cupcakes, cool photos and (of course) shoes that we like.
Well one day she emailed me an idea on how to decorate your pumpkins.
The blog I am referring to is Between Naps on the Porch. I love her blog, her home and of course her porch.
Ashley decided that we needed to make these.
So off I went to purchase some pumpkins.
Then some ribbon. We didn't realize how much ribbon we were going to need for 3 of them.
So I picked her up from work today to get the rest of the ribbon.

           Here is our display:)
I really like how they turned out. The photo doesn't do them justice as it is night and this is in the hallway, so just take my word on it, they turned out quite pretty.                  

Today didn't go as planned.
Here is my TO DO list.
Here is what I really got done today:
Drove Kristy to school.
Checked email and replied to YouTube comments
Checked emails and replied to and watched YouTube.
Lunch with Ashley and Heather, picked up ribbon.
Checked emails and replied to and watched YouTube.
Picked up Kristy and Blake.
Groceries consisted of frozen pizza for supper.
Checked emails and replied and watched YouTube.

See the pattern here, lol.

Hope you all had more of a productive day than I did ;)

  1. I love pumpkins. There is so much you can do! These are VERY pretty!

  2. Lovely! I would love to buy the craft ones and save, ut they are stinkin' expensive! Suppose I could get real ones and do something! Just have one on theporch with some apples from our tree that are not good eating or baking ones...

  3. Oh I love this idea! I'll have to check out the site as well. Thanks for sharing Tracy.

  4. Ha ha ha! I love how your day went. Some days you just need to vegetate. I actually redid my foam board color cubbies. I made them bigger and used the old ones for storing other tools I need at hand. I was able to fit all of my prismacolor pencils in one slot. I need more of those to and more water color pencils. I now have every medium, except for oil Paints, at hand. Now I need to go and finish up the little gift bags for my daughters Halloween party tomorrow.

    I almost forgot. The pumpkins are so pretty. I think next year I'm going to buy those fake carvable pumpkins and decorate them.

  5. Love the pumpkins! I'm so glad to read that someone else starts the day with good intentions, and then......well, you know.

  6. Lots of U tube watching and chauffeuring, me thinks.
    There's always tomorrow.
