As I was walking through Marshalls the other day… Why do a lot of my blog posts start out like that? Because Marshalls. Anyways, I spotted this lovely rustic metal basket & I just had to have it. Right when I saw it I had plans for it. I had no idea if it would actually work, but I tried it out today & it didn’t turn out half bad…
A big old basket of pumpkins. That’s right. I had done a similar centerpiece in our recent fall home tour [here], but I wanted to try something different & share my idea with you guys as well. I love it because it’s simple, but makes a huge impact. All I did was take my basket & about 4 sizes of white pumpkins [all from Michaels & Marshalls] & some greenery [from Michaels] & layered them in the basket for this centerpiece. But, of course a big basket of pumpkins would look good anywhere not just as a centerpiece. Sitting on the floor, by a fireplace, on an end table. I mean, it’s a basket of pumpkins.. come on.
I get that this basket of pumpkins isn’t ground breaking, & to some it’s very insignificant & you might be going through something hard & then you come here to my blog & see me playing with pumpkins & think “wow, this is what this girl does” Well, actually I had 20 minutes this morning in my hectic day & I saw the empty basket & remembered my plan & took those 20 minutes & used them to do something I love. It refreshed me to create a quick centerpiece with these pumpkins & to quickly photograph them & it makes me happy to share things here on the blog with you daily. I know you guys only get a glimpse of my life if that, but I hope that my blog encourages you to do what you love even if you only have 20 minutes a day to do so. A big ol’ basket O’ pumpkins made me happy today & I hope it brightened your day too!

One of my favorite things about Fall is all the DIY/decoration Fall posts on blogs 🙂 This is so simple and yet so classy.
I don’t think that basket is insignificant. I think it’s eye-catching and appealing. So unique to have around.

What is that guy?
Love your basket of white pumpkins! You’ve sparked an idea for me… But I really love what you said about maybe someone is going through a difficult time…but to take 20 minutes to do what makes you happy…to lift you up.
So enjoy seeing what you do, it inspires me! Going right out to Michael’s and get me some white pumpkins for my market basket!
I love it so simple yet such a statement! Love everything you create and absolutely love your farmhouse!!!
I LOVE that round sign on the wall behind the pumpkins. (Pumpkins are cute too!) ?
