  1. Thanks for featuring my white pumpkin topiary. Have a wonderful weekend. :)

    1. Laura you did such a great job on that. I was delighted to share it : ) Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Cute pumpkin ideas!! Thanks for putting them together. My favorite is probably the washi tape. So simple, but what a great look!!


    1. Hi Rachel! I love the washi tape one, too. I think it would be great to do a patchwork washi one that covers the whole pumpkin like that last pic : )

  3. Great round up! I am lovin' the white pumpkins with the bats! Thanks for sharing at the Pomp Party! Hope to see you back next week!

    1. Hi Jill! There are so many creative pumpkins out there, it was hard to keep it to just 13. I think the bat pumpkins rock, too! Thanks for stopping by : )


I'm so glad you're here! I read each and every comment, even if I don't get the time to respond individually. You can tell me anything : )
