.............or even better, a pumpkin colored chair while you enjoy some pumpkin gazing!
Garden treasures - SuzAnna's Antiques
It's that very colorful time of year, especially if you love plenty of orange to add to your Fall decor. Yesterday, when I arrived at the Vintage Village, Sam was unloading an enormous delivery of fresh from the North Carolina mountains pumpkins. For the next several weeks these beautiful pumpkins and gourds, soon to be joined by a huge selection of potted chrysanthemums, will be waiting for you.
Seems the hot, dry Summer was perfect for growing pumpkins - this has to be a bumper crop.
Plenty of interesting gourds and squash too.
You can't miss that huge box of white pumpkins, my favorite. Other years I've had to search high and low for them - love them for my neutral decor - and now Sam has plenty.
If you're into pie and quick bread baking, the just picked flavorful 'pie pumpkins' will beat anything out of a can!
Sam deals in tons of old farm stuff - vintage and antique - his items are perfect for displaying pumpkins.
Sadly I will not be doing much decorating for Fall and Halloween this year because I'll be away for several weeks. Lucky for you though...........you can stop by Sam's and grab my share!
Think of me please...............perhaps on Halloween I'll be the one in the orange parka in the middle of the thousands of black and white penguins!
So, if you're within driving distance of Raleigh's Vintage Village on Durant Road, come on over to visit the many shops now located there...........even if it requires a quick brake and a U-Turn over the railroad track, it will be well worth it. Pumpkins, flowers, still some local veggies, and so many fabulous antiques and vintage items for your home and garden, you'll be pleasantly surprised I guarantee it.
