Pumpkin Filled Goat Cart

Yesterday I made it over to Billings Missouri, for Pheona's Vintage Market; a once a month sale in an adorable Victorian house turned shop. The weather was beautiful; a real feel of Fall was in the air and when I left home in the morning it was 62... perfect! While I was out I stopped to buy my first load of pumpkins for the season. Normally they would have already been arranged on the front porch and deck, happily hanging out with some mums that I found last weekend. But this week we are scheduled for our new roof to be put on, and because we have wood shake to take off, decking to be put down, then the new composition roof, it might take a whole week or longer. (oooohhhh, I'm praying not) Soooo....the pumpkins had to come inside until the roof and new gutters are on.

I love this reproduction black goat cart that I found several years ago, and it's perfect for my load of pumpkins. At Christmas this little cart holds one of my smaller Christmas trees for the Living Room.

 Look at this wonderful pinky-blush pumpkin, 
how perfectly "shabby".
Just right for all you "no orange" Fall gals.

Some preserved leaves and real bittersweet,
which costs it's weight in gold.

The little cart is here in the Living Room in front of the old screen I mod podged a couple of years ago. I had wanted to do a project in antique book pages and this was the perfect victim  piece.

Here's a photo of what that screen
 looked like 4 years ago when I first found it.
and then after the make over.

The book pages are antique English Composition and Grammar pages.

 I'm already itching to go back for another load. 
Nothing like a grouping of pumpkins to get you in the mood for Fall.

Also, just wanted to tell you that this is my new camera's maiden voyage.
I upgraded my Canon T2i, which I love love love
and is super easy to use
(and that I'll be using when I'm out and about)
to the new Canon 70D, the new kid on the block at Canon.
The pics are more clear straight out of the camera than I've ever experienced;
hardly need to do any tweaking at all. I'm really having fun with it!
