Pink Pumpkins

Pink Pumpkins.....I just love all the new colors that the pumpkin growers are adding for our fall decorating!   Look at all those "nubby" things on the pumpkin skin...just beautiful!

I have a very simple vignette on the kitchen table...sometimes I put a lot of stuff in my vignettes and sometimes I don't.....just depends on my mood!

I showed you this table scape a few days ago and was thinking about painting the piano bench..well, H did.  I chose white because the piano that it belongs with is white.   I decided not to change the fabric on it....maybe later.

I also decided to add another chair to the table.   I had this oak one that H had bought at the auction for $6 back in the summer and it worked perfect.   Now I have seating for 4 instead of 2 in the kitchen.

I was playing with my new pumpkin and tried it up on the counter...don't know if I like it better there on on the table.

Our Walmart has a good selection of pretty pumpkins...I think they were about $6.

Hope you are having a wonder fall!   See you soon....

  27. Beautiful pink pumpkin, I was thinking you painted. Such a soft color and perfect for decorating.

    ReplyDelete
  28. My first thought...pink pumpkin? Huh? My second thought, why not? :D From the link I thought you painted it. We, too, do not have pink pumpkins here!

    ReplyDelete
  29. That is a fun looking pumpkin, warts and all. I like the soft colour of it. Your new chair and the painted piano bench are perfect for your kitchen table! Happy Fall to you. Pamela

  42. Hi Penny. Congratulations on your feature at a Delightsome Life. That pumpkin is really beautiful and looks so pretty anyplace you put it. I haven't seen a pink one yet but had read about them. I like the white piano bench. Everything looks beautiful as usual..Happy Monday..Judy

  43. Hello Penny

    This is the first time I've visited your blog - it's beautiful!

    Oh your pink pumpkin is the prettiest one I've seen on my rounds of blogs with Autumn posts!
    I don't like orange so I am thrilled to see that someone has been clever and produced a pink skinned pumpkin - can you eat it later or is it just for show?!
    I would love to get some seeds of this variety - maybe Mr Google will find some for me!

    The piano stool looks very shabby chic painted white - I love the floral tabled cloth on the before photo - we have very similar taste Penny.

    Lovely to meet you
    hugs
    Shane
