Fall is here! If you are celebrating by pulling out your sweaters and eating all things pumpkin spice, you are marking the season well. If you are in the South and still sweating, I’m sorry. Fall will come soon! Right?
Gourds and mini-pumpkins are my favorite decorating items, so you can imagine I love pumpkin patches. I wait all year long to buy the colorful fall items. True story.
We moved into our new house last October and I made myself wait to buy little pumpkins and gourds until we were in the new house. Before I unpacked boxes or started settling in, I bought handfuls of colorful gourds to decorate our new shelves. Priorities!
