Fall Touches The Potting Bench

Before heading to Texas I added a few fall touches to my potting bench
I really love this old window on the bench and hope to decorate it a bit more soon

Pumpkins


A welcome sign


The wood pumpkins I found in a thrift shop

I am thinking of painting this guy...black, white or ??? what do you think!
Maybe not paint him but how about a burlap ribbon on the hat??

I love the old window on your potting bench. I think I would leave the pumpkin head terra cotta an just paint the hat black. But I'm not an authority on pumpkin heads!

The old window sure makes a perfect backdrop for your Fall decorations! I think Fall is one of the prettiest times to decorate! I better get busy! Hugs!

I didn't know that you got a window - very pretty.

I love the pumpkin because it is irregular. And I like it the way it is.

Love,

I love the terra cotta pumpkin, Linda. I'd leave it just the way it is, maybe add a light. xo

Very cute, and I love those wooden ones. It's all most adorable!

Beautiful, especially that tierra cotta pumpkin. It's very original. I just got rid of an old window and it never even occurred to me to use it on my porch with decorations. Now I could kick myself.

Thank you for remembering and writing about breast cancer awareness month. I'm still in the fight.

I'd keep Mr Pumpkin the same colour but add a tea light.

I like the burlap ribbon idea for Jack:@)

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

I would leave him be and give him a burlap ribbon for his hat! What a nice potting bench you have!

Love all of your Fall touches Linda, especially that terra cotta pumpkin guy! I love him the way he is, but a burlap ribbon sounds like a great idea. And maybe you could put one of those plug-in lights inside, so you could enjoy him at night too!

Your potting bench looks great in fall decor. I like the terra cotta pumpkin as is.. but the burlap riboon would be a nice touch!

Ames said...

I like the little guy just the way he is. Neat old window!~Ames

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

What an adorable spot you've created. Love all your personal touches and that pumpkin too. I like the idea of a burlap ribbon. Kinda like the natural look to him...or her:-)

Viki said...

I tried to post on the Pink Ribbons site but it kept telling me I wasn't getting the word thing right. Yikes!! I'm not sure if it's me or her site.

I heart your potting bench, with or without the fall touches!!

That is a neat old glass window Linda! I bet anything you do to the pumkin will look great! You have an eye for decorating!
Sorry to hear about your friend with BC!! Hopefully she found it early and will pull through it!! It certainly takes a toll on the person and everyone around her!
God Bless!

Your old window and pumpkins are so neat. I would leave as is for the terra cotta one. Thanks for visiting me.

Viki said...

I figured out how to get a comment on her site. It was me, lol.

Susan said...

Hi Linda...I think a burlap ribbon around the top would be dandy. Cute decor! Good job! Have fun in Texas, ya little yellow rose! Susan

Susan said...

What about spraying him with blackboard paint--I just saw that Krylon has one. Then, you could write a message across his hat! I'm heart sick over hearing about your friend, sending love, XOXO

Sarah said...

LInda, your fall touches on your potting shed are really welcoming. Your little terra cotta jack-o-lantern is like one I've had for years. ;-)

I like the idea of the burlap ribbon on the terra cotta pumpkin! Who doesn't love an old window and a potting table? ~ Maureen

Vickie @ Ranger 911 said...

I've got a couple of old screens and windows stashed in our garage. I need to put them to use. Thanks for the idea!

Shelia said...

Hi Linda! Oh, that old window looks great all falled up! Love the little trio of pun'kins! The clay Jackolantern is adorable and I'd just add a ribbon. Thank you for your sweet words, Linda, and have a safe trip. Are you coming to Houston? If you are maybe we could meet and have lunch!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Oh my stars! I love that little terra cotta pumpkin/jack-o-lantern! No paint, no paint (I'm not usually that bossy in my comments, but I think he is perfect the way he is!) but the ribbon idea sounds cute.

I love that window on your potter's bench! I like the burlap ribbon on his hat! That would look lovely indeed!
