I bought this little metal stand years ago at my neighbor’s yard sale for $3. It came with votive cups for candles, but I have used it over the years with a variety of items. In the summer, I’ve put little peat pots in it with faux succulents, and at Christmas time, it holds Christmas ornaments very nicely. It even holds cupcakes perfectly for entertaining. But, in the fall, I place mini pumpkins in it. I think it may have 12 holders and I only purchased 8 pumpkins, so I may add some white ones eventually. But for now, it brightens up my screened in porch and is the total sum of my fall decorating out there. The older I get, the more I love and cherish simple decorating.
With fall coming and hopefully some cooler weather, I hope to spend more time on my porch. For mid September, it is still unbearably hot here in Ohio and feels more like mid July. I’m looking forward to some reading and chilling out here.
Sweetness comes in many forms, and in fall . . . mini pumpkins are just too cute.
To any local friends, y’all are welcome to stop by any time. We’ll sit and pass some pleasant time together. Consider this your open invitation.
