Friday Favorites–Pumpkins

I love almost everything about pumpkins.  Looking at them, eating them, making things from them or that look like them, all make me happy.  The only exception is when they’ve started to rot and they’re still sitting on my front porch.  If someone could come up with a self-disposing pumpkin, that would be great.  Oh, and one that ejects its own seeds and guts.  Never mind – that sounds even more gross than having to remove them myself.

The Newbie Farmstress has a great idea to get that decomposing pumpkin to pull its weight.  First it’s a lovely planter, then it’s compost.

I’m intrigued by these Roasted Pumpkin Pie Chickpeas from Produce on Parade.  It looks like I’ll need to find myself some pumpkin butter and give them a try.

With all the reusable craft pumpkins out there, it’s nice to find something to carve into them that can be carried into the Thanksgiving season, like this design from Family Circle.

This Pumpkin Gift Tag from Do Small Things With Love is adorable.  Maybe on that jar of pumpkin butter I’m looking for?

The bathroom is often left out when it comes to seasonal decorating.  At least that’s the case in my house.  This Pumpkin Soap from Clean and Scentsible would add a seasonal touch and keep everyone clean at the same time.

I like the papers used on this 3D Paper Pumpkin from Crafts by Amanda.  You could also fold it flat for easy storage.

Burlap is everywhere right now, and I gotta tell you, I don’t mind one bit.  These little Burlap Pumpkins from Refresh Renew don’t require much sewing and are a great way to bring a little of that trend in for the season.
