Oh how I would love to be entered in this fabulous give-away. I love white pumpkins and can't wait to see them at the market up the road. We got our first whiff of Fall weather today and it's simply glorious and really put me in the mood to get the front porch Fall vignette up as well as the witches in the foyer. Hope you are having a fabulous holiday weekend. ~ Lynn @thevintagenest P.s. I tried to grow the baby boo white pumpkins last year without much success.

A Cottage Muse said...

I had no idea that white pumpkins had been around since the 1700s. They are my favorite. I always use them for decoration during the fall. I like that they will go right on into December as well. Your sign is wonderful. I'll spread the word, but I secretly hope this one comes my way. :-)
Happy Fall! ~ Sarah

AngeLikeMe said...

Love, love, love your sign!! I've seen white pumpkins in magazines for sometime now. I'd LOVE to decorate them but they're difficult to find, especially down here in Florida. We're lucky if we can find decent orange ones. I'll be diligent in the search but it's difficult when you have "unique abilities" and usually stuck in bed. I'll just have to use the wings you gave me. :-}

Paula said...

We LOOOOOOOVE fall decorations and I have a beautiful black hutch that is calling for this sign to come and adorn it.
