Naughty Pumpkins Saga

My little white pumpkins were *out and about*
today strutting their stuff so I told them I would take
their picture. I asked them nicely before we even started to
behave because I wanted a great photo shoot. They sweetly
obliged me and hopped up onto this old suitcase and
fell right in line.

However, they quickly decided the suitcase wasn't for them
and the minute my back was turned they slid right down the
side and landed in the middle of this wire holder!

I almost said something to them, but decided to wait and see what they would do next. They were trying to get all comfy...{I think}

pushing and shoving their way around...

Just as I was getting ready to open my mouth, they ran
right past me and out onto the back porch. They thought
they were being clever by trying to hide in this
metal container!

I warned them did I not... but no...they would have none
of that. One little pumpkin (still feeling very naughty)
climbed onto the backs of his siblings and jumped
right out and onto the ladder that was standing

He was feeling pretty good about his antics until he noticed
that he had lost his stem somewhere along the line.
{that is what happens when you misbehave. lol.}

so he just sat there looking very sad.

I finally rescued him and put him back in the bucket
with his friends and he was a happy little pumpkin.

Man where did that come from?? I started this post
intending the pictures to speak for themselves.
It was fun though and I hope you enjoyed it.

Linking up with Kathleen over at Faded Charm again.

I don't blame those pumpkins..I would not be able to make up my mind where I wanted to be either in a house full of so many cool places!

Marie said...

Aren't white pumpkins the cutest ever? I went crazy and bough a few at the local grocery as well. Luv your displays Sandi! Saying 'hi' from White Wednesday.

If I can write as if I am a 70 year old dog, you certainly can write from the viewpoint of a pumpkin!

Hey! keeps us sane some days eh?

Ok Sandi, that was weird. LOL I was just here at your blog less than an hour ago, but I didn't leave a comment and then you left your comment on my blog. I'm glad you liked the tutorial in Vintage Charm, I don't ahve my copy yet and am waiting to see it. I'm actually playing with the idea of birds nests for my chandy. :-) I'm so glad you stopped by!

Oh, I enjoyed it VERY much! Pumpkins around here are most boringly well-behaved. Oh, for a little liveliness in the squash patch!!

That was good Girl! I had a good laugh from those naughty little pumpkins. Still laughing....;)

Tete said...

Don't you just love it when they misbehave? Lucky they didn't get into a baking dish and into the oven. That would have been a disaster for them!
Maybe tomorrow they can do a spa day and bubble bath in the kitchen sink...
or turn into couch potatoes, eating popcorn and watching late night horror movies...
can't wait to see what they dress up as for Halloween...
Hugs- Tete

We are kindred spirits or I could maybe say- great minds just think alike. On my blog I did a post about 3 faux baby boos, because I was not able to buy any. They sold out so fast. My faux boo pumpkins were popping up here and there all around my tiny farmhouse. Yep...mine were talking up a storm as they traveled from here to there. lol. Many blessings and enjoyed this post.
