    I love those plates. I’ve been so busy that I still haven’t decorated for fall…which is very unlike me.

    I have these really cute (okay they’re going to sound weird/ugly) pumpkins on display in my kitchen right now. They’re stuffed with something, but they’re velvety material in the shape of a pumpkin with a real stem on the top. They come in all sorts of colours. I’m not much of a decorator, but I had to buy these lil’ guys.

  25. September 22, 2014 / 8:57 pm
