Cottage Style Party & Pumpkins in the Garden

I just love pumpkins tucked into a fall garden!
Take a walk with me to see my autumn garden...

No frost yet and these nasturtiums are still going strong.

I love this color play of white pumpkins next to lambs ear and the concrete birdbath.

This bunny was one of my WLYS finds. 
I tucked it into the garden next to these just-begining-to-bloom mums.

More purple mums next to my purple zinnias and leaf-filled birdbath/kitty watering bowl.

Pumpkins tucked into yellow nasturtiums.

More pumpkins on my garden bench.

These nasturtiums just started to flower after a slow start.
I think the leaves are just as decorative as the flowers!

Did you do any fall decorating in your garden?

Hello Friends!

Welcome to this week's

Cottage Style Party


Hello Friends!

As you can see it is pumpkin time in my garden!
As long as the frost holds off so will the flowers but fall is definitely here to stay.

It is almost time to winterize my garden and put away the lawn furniture, clay pots, and the garden decorations.

With a heavy heart I must admit I need to take a blog break.
It is my busy season at work which means lots of overtime and crazy hours. It is also the busy season at Etsy which means lots of listing and packing squeezed in to the crazy work hours.

That leaves no time for sleep nor for blogging.
I need to think about how I want to proceed with the Cottage Style Party and want some time for that.
Yes, between working and packing!

I hate to do this with the sparkle season(!) on the horizon and perhaps I will be able to squeeze in the occasional post but please don't count on that!
I said try now!

Until then…let's enjoy this pumpkin season!

How pretty is Jody's autumn inspired dining room?
Can you believe that stunning centerpiece?
And that Tuscan background on the wall?

Drop by Jody's blog Southern Seazons to see her lovely fall decorated buffet too!
And don't miss the fall decor in her dining room bathtub too!

How cute are these pumpkins and gourds made from old books?
Such a simple but elegant idea for fall decorating!

Diane even used home made stems to make those gourds look so life like! Love it!
Visit her blog An Extraordinary Day to see all the details!

I just adore Brooke's burlap and lace runner!
So cute on her antique hall chest!

I love the display on top with the candle sticks and birds.
Drop by Brooke's blog Creative Country Mom to see the details and don't miss those darling burlap roses!
