PUMPKINS ALL OVER THE PLACE...

I always hesitate to link up to anything with the word vignette in it...
I just don't know how to do them very well...
not much practice...
Things never stay the same on tabletops around our place...
BUT....
*
I've wanted to play in the memes going around with all the pumpkins..
and, ARTIE...if these aren't really vignettes...
just tell me and I'll
hang my head in shame...:)
*
A tiny little pumpkin in a tiny little chair...
Metal pumpkin ??
Whoever heard of a METAL PUMPKIN...not CHARLIE BROWN, I'll bet !!
*
and...I'm almost CERTAIN these
peanut butter/chocolate chip cookies..
right out of the oven
would NEVER be considered a vignette prop...
SOOO...
let's just eat 'em !!
*

This isn't a vignette...but...I want a bike just like this one...
An older COUNTRY HOME magazine...
I nevah throw away a good magazine..

Love all those pumpkins...that metal one is quite different.

I am headed your way to eat one of those cookies (well, maybe more than one).

Have a great weekend!

Sue said...

BJ- I think you more than qualify with you vignettes of pumpkins! I love the black chair with the single orange "punkin" on it. i think I'll put white ones on mine! Good idea. The metal one on your table is cute and unique, too. And how can you NOT say cookies on a tray are not part of a vignette? Yum......

Kathleen said...

LOL, I have a metal pumpkin on my steps! The squirrels don't eat it at least~

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

-chuckle- The word 'vignette' gives me pause too! I don't know how people make one. Sometimes, when I put stuff together on a mirror tray, I have.... Guess it kind of make a 'vignette.' But I don't have any of those lovely cloches.<--Another word that's not in my life. ,-)))))

But you certainly have lovely vignettes! So there! :-))))

Ahhh I see you are playing around in your Settings!!! This and that, look different. I just know that I'll have to start doing so too... Soon... Well, sort of soon.

Maybe I'm still too frazzled from all the New Editor Learning, I did this week! Maybe I should wait, a few more days. ,-)

Gentle hugs...

Shelia said...

Morning, BJness! I do believe all of your cute pumpkins make lovely vignettes! Now how in the world do you stay so slim and trim with all of the yummy looking baking you do? :)
You're amazing!
Be a sweetie,

Hi sweet lady...

I just wanted to come by after reading that sweet, sweet note that you left on my autumn mantel, Girlfriend! You always make my heart smile...thank you!!!

Darlin', I love your pretty pumpkin vignette! What do you mean...asking if it qualifies? It's sooo pretty! You know, I love the white pumpkins and I have not seen a one where I live. Can you believe that? I'd love to have some. Of course, the orange pumpkins are pretty too but the white pumpkins just look "dressy"...don't you think? Ohhh my gosh, and your peanut butter chocolate chip cookies look divine!!! They're the most delicious vignette that I've seen in a long time!!! Mmmmm!!!

Warmest autumn wishes, my friend!

I recently came across that issue of Country Home as well. It was one of my favorite covers!

Sherry said...

Oh BJ! I know you know how to do a vignette. You are always doing one when you display your food or dishes!~ I think you have a great eye in contrast too!! Because of your love of black and white. That little black chair photo is eye candy! Bravo on your vignettes and who could do them so well with chocolate and sweets? Only you! You could have worked for Godiva in another life and done windows! LOL
Sherry

Kathleen Grace said...

Oh darling BJ how did I get so far behind!? I checked my google reader and you have posted 4 times since my last visit.
I think your vignettes are wonderful, I love the way that little pumpkin looks on the little black chair and the peanut butter chocolate chip cookies are brilliant, I have never thought to try that! Now off to catch up with your other posts:>)

Debra@Common Ground said...
