Pumpkin Topiary in a Silver Trophy Bowl

I love topiaries of all kinds…

…..and when I was able to purchase great pumpkins perfect for stacking….

……….from the Farmers’ Market…I was in topiary heaven!

I originally purchased enough pumpkins to make two topiaries for the back porch….

…..then I relocated one of those to the front porch.

I headed out again to the Farmers’ Market to get three more to create a new topiary…

…..one to place in the Silver Trophy Bowl in my foyer.


I purchased this great silver bowl at the antique mall where my booth is located….

…..the inscription says “SOUTHAMPTON CVO PARADE….MAYORS TROPY….1980”

Pinky told me that the CVO parade is actually the 4th of July Parade in Southampton”

My hubby asked me why all the pumpkin topiaries???!!..

…..I looked and smiled….he returned the smile.

I had so much fun decorating with these pumpkins this year…


I brought out my Plush Velvet Pumpkins from last year…

I placed them on top of a French paperback book dated, 1928…


I love this book as it was a “gift” from the owner this Antiquities Brocante …

…..a wonderful place where our “French Shopping Group” found many, many treasures!

Some of my “stash” from this shop…and how did it miss that great magnifying glass in the case!!!


I do not have many Halloween decorations out yet…

…..but I think this Lenox Jack O’ Lantern went well with the Lenox Leaf dish…


I filled the leaf dish with this great Fall potpourri…

Fall Vignette


I really need to paint the A/C return….

But then again….

2013 France Trip

I am waiting for this beauty (the buffet, ha!) to arrive in the U.S. from France….

…..so that I can place it in the foyer…(and it just may hide that A/C return)…

Have a wonderful weekend enjoying the Fall weather and making beautiful memories!
