Giant Pumpkin Display

2 10 2008

This is my all time favorite time of the year. I can’t wait to visit a pumpkin patch. I wish I lived near this guy’s house!

Check out Ed Moody’s house in Frankfort, Michigan. 

These are REAL pumpkins! 

Last year Ed’s display attracted in excess of 15,000 people and well over 1,000 trick-or-treaters.

 

Ed started to carve pumpkins when he was about 6 years old. He didn’t start sculpting smaller pumpkins until 15 years ago and graduated to giant pumpkins 7 years ago when his 5 year dream of carving a Cinderella pumpkin came true with his purchase of a 590 lb. pumpkin. He is now known for his Cinderella carriage pumpkin every year.

Look at her now!! 

Like the jeans? I hot glued this ribbon on them:-) Too cute! That is her new Mini Mouse that has to go EVERYWHERE now. Guess what she’ll be for Halloween??? Starts with an M and rhymes with house.

Home Tour – Front Porch

8 09 2008

One of my weekend projects was to clean my front porch. Well, I went a little nuts. One minute I was sweeping my  steps, then the next I was re-arranging furniture in my dining and living room! I think the new season of Top Design got me inspired to simplify my rooms. So I thought I would give you a house tour to show my semi-new digs. Plus, it’s always fun to see someone else’s house right?

I’ll show off my front porch today, because I did spend a lot of time cleaning it up and getting ready for Fall. What flowers I did have outside were all dead. It was so ugly and dusty!! I don’t know why I didn’t take a before picture? I never think ahead for this bloggy stuff.

Instead of a wreath, I decided on this for the door. I found some great plants on sale! I love that! This needs to be a little bigger. So I’m still on the hunt for some good vines. But for now, it will have to do.


Look at this shinny door! For the second time in 8 years, I washed the door AND the windows.

Ready to come inside?

 

Sorry, you’ll have to come back tomorrow!!! I’m such a tease… Hope to see you then! 

 

Can’t wait? Then, check out my home office and garden.
