Spray Painted Plant Urns, Pumpkin Picking

Share It:
We are coming off of one of the best weekends we've had in a long time!  We were consumed with fall fun, friends, and food!  Fantastic!

First, remember the 13 dirty urns I found in someone's recycling?  I spray painted some black and then on a whim I spray painted some a pumpkin color. I wasn't sure if I'd like it but it turns out I love them. Something different!  And they bring a bit of color to our deck.



On Saturday evening, some of our favorite friends came by for some fire pittin' and marshmallow roasting.  They have two girls around our girls' ages and they got to watch a movie in their jammies while we hung out outside after the marshmallows were done.  It was the perfect night and the best way I can think of to spend a crisp fall evening!

Today we went pumpkin picking with my sister's family. We are so fortunate to live in an area of NJ that is full of farms and quaint little places to celebrate the seasons. After a hayride and picking some pumpkins, we all enjoyed dinner in a local Italian restaurant. These are the times I hope my girls remember when they think of their cousins. We laugh a ton with my sister's family and I hope Ellie and Molly are able to have the same kind of relationship with their families when they grow up.

Ellie thought she was a lion and kept roaring. It may have been the cutest thing in the history of the world. Puppies everywhere cried with shame.

And lastly, I want to thank all of you that are following my little blog. I am enjoying sharing my life and hobbies here and it is very meaningful to know others are reading and enjoying it along with me. I love being a follower of your blogs too and appreciate being a part of such a great community!



  1. LOL at the roaring pumpkin face! I do like the urns painted orange and never would have thought of it myself. I see so many great ideas in blogland that it's impossible to keep up with all I want to do! ~ Maureen

  6. Hi Jenny, great color on the painted urns! I like the bright color against the natural wood and plants. Nice contrast, thank you for sharing.
