Reminiscing with "Sunday Favorites" Blog Party

When I saw that the blog "Happy to Design" was having a "Sunday Favorites" blog party, I knew I wanted to be included.  The party is designed to give bloggers an opportunity to share, once again, one of their favorite posts.

Since it will be almost one year (October 15, 2009) since I began my own blog, I decided I would like to share one of my first posts. 

When I first saw the black pumpkins, I knew I had to include them in my topiary.

A furry black spider greets you at my front door.

Nature does not provide our area with much of a Fall season so we have to create our own. We just came back from a trip from the West Coast to East Coast. We were a little early for the Fall even on the East Coast but we did have to shop at four faux pumpkin patches on the drive in order to create these topiaries.

 I made these faux pumpkin topiaries last year  and when I brought them out to place them by my door this year, it brought back precious memories we had on our "Across-the-United States" trip.  My husband was so good about letting me stop to shop whenever I spotted shops that I didn't want to pass up. Our van was so full by the time we were almost home, the two huge white pumpkins were strapped in the front passenger seat...I wish you could have seen some of the looks we got.  I love to ride in the back to watch DVDs and read. We are going to be flying to the East Coast this year.....Do you think I can manage to bring back more huge pumpkins?

 Thank you for stopping by for a visit. I am so excited that I have almost reached 100 followers and close to 100 posts.  I have had such a fun time in blogland and have enjoyed meeting so many wonderful kindred-spirited friends.
