Pink Pumpkins for the Cure

This is a repost of one that I did Oct 1, 2012.  I wanted to post it again for the month of October in honor of my mother who had breast cancer.  The pictures are kind of blurry.....I have a new camera now and my skills have improved 100%..  They were so bad when I started this blog that there was no where to go but   My writing skills have hopefully improved also.

Here is the original post!

  The traditional colors for fall are orange, brown, and gold.  But what do you do if those colors don't look  right with your decor?  Well, you start spraying those orange pumpkins pink and white and covering them with glitter

I went out to the pumpkin patch last year and gathered a big bag of stems.   I have let them dry all year and am using them in my displays.  My initial works for Penny and Pumpkin!

I don't know if you can tell how big  this pumpkin is, but it is very large!! 

Thought I needed a nest and a couple of birds!

I've added roses, cloth, and sweater pumpkins.   

I hope you enjoyed my repost.  Let's find a CURE!!!
