Something ‘Pumpkin’ This Way Comes

Oh, yeah.

It’s coming….

Are your senses beginning to tingle, and you skin starting to prickle with the anticipation of the approaching season?!?

Anyone who knows me, knows my obsessive love for these next coming months.

If my soul has a color, it is the color of October.

Rich chocolate browns, burnt amber caramel, blood-red maroons, and golden sunset oranges are just a few of the rich shades that make up my favorite color pallets. 


And so the season of ‘pumpkin everything’ is quickly coming upon us.

This golden gourd mania will soon overtake our store shelves and lives with squashes made to fit every aspect of life: home decor, food, drink, candles, lights ect.

There are those that turn a cynical and disparaging  eye to this yearly phenomenon….well, I say, “BOO! BOO AND FIE!”

Embrace your inner Autumn!…And let the masses look to the ‘Great Pumpkin’!

    You are not alone. When I see pumpkin anything, using towards the end of August, my heart goes pitter patter! I even have pumpkin color nail polish. I think I live for the fall. Little pumpkin candle holders and knick knacks stay up all year. In fact, Halloween is an all year thing for us.

    Can’t wait to go around sniffing the candles and going crazy over which ones to buy. And then there are perfume roll on scents–I’m picking mine out already. When my supermarket put out their pumpkin spice waffles on special last year (it was the end of the season) I think I bought every one they had. Reminds me-time to string up the orange lights….

    I understand, Kristine! So glad to have found a kindred soul.
