I'm Hooked On White Pumpkins


It should come as no surprise that I am hooked on white pumpkins!

Here, just take a look:


My 4 precious white pumpkins from The Dollar Tree, thanks again, Ramona!!!


White pumpkins in some fancy schmancy glass candle holders:




And even spray painted white pumpkins!







And heck, why not stick some white pumpkins in a planter on some feathers and call it a day? ;) Can anyone guess what they are sitting on???

So, what are you hooked on? I would love to hear all about it!

And when you are done here, please visit the rest of the party over at Julia's Hooked on Houses site...make sure, too, to bookmark her new website, she changed servers a couple of weeks ago!


ttfn,
Bella

PS: I also received this awesome award from Annabelle at 1938 Elm Street:



I would like to pass this award on to all of those that participated in Kimba's Halloween Party at A Soft Place To Land and Jen's Pretty Your Pumpkin Party at Sanctuary Arts at Home!!! Love them blog parties ;)

Hi Bella...

Oh yes...the weblink is the BEST way to go for the Rub 'n Buff. Even with the shipping charge (nominal), the price per tube is less than at Michael's or Hobby Lobby...and these 2 places, you only have a couple of colors.

My favs are...Antique Gold, Autumn Gold, Ruby (really a pretty Ruby Red - not at all like the color I see on their graph on my monitor), Black, Antique White, Emerald and Olive Gold. I had a problem with 1 tube of the black being REALLY THICK, emailed them and had a NEW tube within a couple of days!!!

Highly recommend them!!

I also have a fondness for the patty-pan (ufo looking) squash. The look soo cute with little faces on them. :)

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

Isn't it funny how white pumpkins are all the rage now? And I only have one ! I have some heavy cardboard ones in the garage, I think I will get them out and paint them white, of course ! LOL.

Hi, this is the first time I have commented here. You have a very nice blog by the way. I think I'm a little hooked on white pumpkins myself!...I sprayed and stenciled them....(a little time consuming though)...I posted a picture of it on my blog. Congrats on your award! ~Cindy~

Katie @ makingthishome.com said...

White pumpkins--I could see them becoming a huge addiction at our house. I love all the different pumpkins you've gathered and how you display them, too. Beautiful!

Thank you for stopping at my new blog today, too.

I look forward to seeing more of your ideas.

Those white pumpkins are fabulous! I think I will be getting some before the season is over....also thanks for the tip on Hooked on Houses. I didn't know she moved! :)

PAT said...

Great post! I love your white punkin's.

I just linked the back porch at Julia's, too.

Pat said...

Hi Bella

White pumpkins are so unusual and I love how you displayed them!

Hugs, Pat

ThriftyDecorChick said...

I feel like such a nerd cause I still haven't done a white pumpkin around here!! :) I love yours, especially the ones you painted and added the ribbon! Your Joe the Plumber post was hilarious!

Bo said...

I don't have a single white pumpkin and now I'm craving at least one so badly...I loved the white ones you put on the tiered stand. ;-) Bo

Kitty Scraps said...

Hello Bella,
I love your home with all your beautiful white pumpkins! Naturally my stinkin' DT didn't have any white pumpkins, no fair! I'm finally back home to stay now so maybe I'll get some fall decorating started *smiles* And I finally updated my blog too, and with pictures! *giggles* Have a wonderfully blessed weekend!

Blanca said...

Love the pumpkins. I like the candle holder idea too.

Let's see what am I hooked on? I guess you could say roosters and scrapbook paper.

Ms. Tee said...

I'm hooked on the white pumpkins, too. And macaroni and cheese sounds like the *perfect* comfort food to me. :)
Enjoy your weekend!!

Nikki said...

I love all of the white pumpkins. I think I'm hooked on anything I can paint green. I painted a white pumpkin green just because I could.

violetposy said...

They are lovely - a good thing to be hooked on :)

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

I am really into white pumpkins too and sage and straw colored accents this year. Alot of spray painting has been going on. :)

Jen - Balancing beauty and bedlam said...

I think that we all need some stock in Dollar Tree since we have definitely upped their yearly profit level by HUGE amounts. :)

Lisa B. said...

Wow...your pumpkins look great! Your poverty post was great too!! I didn't even know that was going on...sorry I missed it.

Mountain Woman said...

I had never seen white pumpkins before and they are gorgeous. Your home must look so fantastic with all those beautiful pumpkins around.

I'm off to try to find some for myself.

salmagundi said...

I could also get hooked on white pumpkins, but I'm trying to restrain myself. I purchased my first one at Dollar Tree!!! Sally

Rue said...

Hi Bella :)

I love those white pumpkins too! In fact we're headed out to the pumpkin patch today and I'm getting some for myself ;)

Robin said...

I love your Fall decor ideas! And after reading your original post about them, I so wanted to find more of those Dollar Tree pumpkins for you, but our Dollar Tree didn't have them. I am posting now to thank you for visiting my nest a couple of weeks ago...I'm still learning how to check comments, etc. on my blog! I didn't mean to be rude. Please forgive me!

Jenni @ nest to keep said...

I think your decorating with white pumpkins is all so beautiful! I especially love your painted white pumpkins on the plant holder. :)

Have a fabulous weekend! :)

Pennies In My Pocket said...

I couldn't get into decorating this fall...we still have a sad amount of boxes everywhere from when we moved in a few months ago. Ugggh BUT I AM going to totally do white pumpkins all over the place next year!

Awesome job! Congrats on the award, too!

Hi Bella,

1938 Elm Street said...

Hey, Bella! I love all your pumpkins. I never got any white ones. I was going to paint a couple of real ones white but haven't gotten around to it yet. Glad you enjoyed the award.
Annabelle :)

Cottage Rose said...

Hello Bella; Love all your white pumpkins. And the ones you sprayed painted and then wrapped them with some beautiful paper or fabric can't tell. You did a wonderful job of decorating with them around your home. I also am hooked on them this is the first year I have used them. I think it is a wonderful change from the orange. It adds more chicness don't you think.

Have a great weekend.

Hugs;
Alaura

Bonnie said...

Bella, check out my blog there is something on there for you! It's
