Pumpkins!

Can you feel the love I have for pumpkins? What other food could you make soup from, carve out and fill with a savory stew, use to bake a yummy bread, roast the seeds, use the seeds in a craft, decorate your home, bake a pie with, make a day of it going to a patch where they are grown, carve in celebration, put a candle in, AND...in a pinch...use as a carriage to take yourself to a ball?
None. No other food has this many uses...I am pretty sure that I am right about this...she typed smiling...
Any~who...I am hooked on this cutie~pie yum~o~rama squash! Noooo...what gave it away? Yep, hooked. Just like I am hooked on Julia's Friday Hooked~On party. Julia ~ I am sending you a virtual pumpkin pie my friend!


Pop 'em in a hanging basket...

Or on a pot of ivy...

Place a gigantic fake~ola one on a bench...

Even sneak and display a cool, never seen before, dark green one on a cake stand...
{truth be told ~ this is really a "Danish Squash" pretending to be a pumpkin squash that I picked up in the produce department this morn}

Santos love pumpkins too...

Grape vines twisted into pumpkin likeness...

Sweet...

Pumpkins and berries...true love...

Grape vine squash on a cookbook shelf...

Yep...hooked...

Sitting a spell...

I am even sewing them...this is my latest OBSESSION!
I mean passion...
I heart burlap almost as much as I heart pumpkins...
Details, details...
HOOKED!
Head on back over to Julia's Hooked On Friday party for more of what other folks fancy...
If you need a ride...just grab the pumpkin carriage out back...Cinderella won't mind...
Happy Weekend Friends....Fall Begins Tuesday!!! Oh happy, happy day!

why yes, I have to agree, the pumpkin has to be the most versatile fruit (or is it a vegetable?). Do you happen to have directions for turning one into a 'carriage' by any chance???

Ramona, I always smile as I visit your site. Absolutely delightful! I'm a fan of pumpkins myself and have scattered a few around our abode. I found some bags of the small pumpkins for sale at the local grocery a few weeks ago. They were a great price at $6 and filled with mini orange pumpkins, a bit larger white ones, and more white ones that have green and gold veining. I used them in several spots around our home. If you want to take a look, they are shown in my "Fall Nesting" post this past week. Happy Fall, Ramona. ~ Sarah
