Finding rusty old junk is fun! Nevertheless, I have found that no matter how much "stuff" I find and collect, only God can fully satisfy my heart. Matthew 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Three Little Pumpkins Sitting On A Plate...

Happy autumn Sunday dear readers! I'm sending a little fall beauty your way with the "Three Little Pumpkins" I just cut off the vine in our garden this morning. Also in keeping with my nerdy  quirky-creative side, I couldn't resist adding my own little version of the well-known finger play, "Five Little Pumpkins Sitting On A Gate." It would seem that I have too much free time on my hands, but that is far from the truth. Actually, I'm swamped, but I try to take time to blog so that I don't overdo it around the house and on projects.

 Every year we toss all of our pumpkins in a pile after Thanksgiving and keep our fingers crossed something will come back the next year. For the past two years all we have gotten are these tiny little ghosties, but to me, its just as exciting as anything because I love them so much. Their size makes them perfect for sweet little fall vignettes.

                                First I decided to photograph them on a pretty ironstone platter.

Then I put them in a favorite ironstone bowl with some vintage lace and buttons.

For now the three little pumpkins are on my dining room table, displayed on vintage silverplate in front of my latest favorite treasure, a large brown transferware piece. I found it for $8 at the Mt. Sterling, KY Court Days Festival. I didn't find too many treasures this year but I was overjoyed about this one and it made it worth the trip. I have been wanting some brown transferware to add to my fall decorating displays and ironstone collections. I have been pinning a lot of brown transferware lately to my Autumn Splendor  and Vintage Love and Decorating boards too.

                                                             Love. Need want more.

                    Three little pumpkins as a centerpiece display, the third one said, "We look beautiful today!"

                  Have a great week everyone. Don't forget to find beauty in the little things this autumn!
