Out of Our Gourd

by Melanie, October 10, 2013

There is probably a medical diagnosis for the squash insanity that overtakes us each October.  We just love our pumpkins and gourds!  The ridges, the bumps, the awesome variety of colors and shapes.  Every year we look forward to decorating with pumpkins.  Clearly we are not alone in this passion for pumpkins because shelter magazines and internet pin boards are pumping out daily pumpkin inspiration.

Ready to decorate your house with some pumpkins?  Here is a roundup of some of our recent favorites.

 Porch Pumpkins
We love the color schemes on these fresh porches.  
They are autumnal without being overly orange or obvious.
