Gourds, pumpkins,and squash. Oh my!

I’m not a fan of Autumn because that means winter is near. I do however love all the beautiful gourds and pumpkins. I love the colors and critters scurrying to prepare for the upcoming cold. I love decorating with all the gorgeous pumpkins. These are my two displays.

The first is an old rusty wheelbarrow my great aunt gave me recently laying on its side. As if the weight of its pumpkin cargo was too much spilling them out. I tucked pieces of gold tulle bunched up between the pumpkins to add a little extra color. I love using gold in Autumn displays. I moved the little boy statue over for right now. I thought he looked good with the setup. I’ll be adding straw bales too. Don’t mind the cargo trailer in the back.

My second display is by the front door. A classic Jack o lantern pumpkin and gorgeous warty guy. I bought the sign at the dollar store.the Besom (broom) in the back is the first one I’ve made of the season. I’ll do a tutorial soon on how to make one. I love something simple to welcome people to my home.

I’ll be saving seed and freezing the pumpkin flesh for later use after the holidays. Autumn blessings everyone!

Much love & many blessings

Roasted vegetables! Easy and delicious side

Today I am sharing a recipe for roasted vegetables. A easy side to serve with any meal. I love roasting vegetables. Just toss them with some oil and herbs. A little salt & pepper maybe and put them in the oven until tender and golden brown.

I made this to go with dinner one night. It’s roasted zucchini, summer squash, and potato’s. Just cube the vegetables into similar sized pieces so they cook evenly. In a bowl mix 2 Tbls olive oil with salt and pepper to taste. As minced rosemary, oregano, and thyme to the bowl. Mix it up then add your vegetables and coat them good. Then just turn them out onto a baking sheet and put into a 350 degree preheated oven until tender and lightly golden brown. Be sure to toss them during the cooking process to make sure the brown evenly.
