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.
yikes...
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!




And...
If you have an Etsy Shop or Online Store be sure and come join in for 
The Marketplace

  3. This is just gorgeous Debra! Pumpkins must be a better price there than here in Dallas, what would have cost a small fortune at our farmer's market. The cart is just precious!

  7. Debra, I love the goat cart with the beautiful pumpkins in it. Everything looks so lovely. You did a marvelous job on your screen.
    Unfortunately I have not seen hardly any pumpkins here in So CA. Hopefully they will be in the stores soon. I use a lot of fake one but mix in real ones with them.
    Have a terrific week.

  15. Oooh Debra!... I love love love your cart full of pumpkins!... and I love seeing ORANGE pumpkins too!... not just pale colored ones... I am totally into the traditional Autumn colors for the most part... we have had white pumpkins around here for years... I used to grow them when we had our little farm... they are called "ghost" pumpkins by folks here... anyway, love pumpkins of ALL kinds!... I bought 3 yesterday at the little stand down the lane, and plan on going back for MORE tomorrow!... I hope they hurry and get your new roof done... I just know there are ALOT of happy little pumpkins (I sound like Bob Ross)... waiting to come home with you!... love the bittersweet too!... always so beautiful... I get so excited for this time of year, and especially your Autumn parties... xoxo Julie Marie PS Just surprised there were no kitties sitting in the cart on top of your pumpkins helping you???...

  17. Hello Debra! I love your pumpkins! You made such a wonderful vignette.
    Your screen looks wonderful. I understand your "victim", mod podge with old book's pages is an addiction for me...
    Besos!

  26. Debra- Your heirloom pumpkins are gorgeous! What a beautiful mix of muted fall colors. You hit the nail on the head every time. That screen is dreamy! Now I'll be on look out for one, for sure! I am so behind on posting right now...when work hits me hard, I have no time to sleep, let alone blog. Yikes, I hope to get a few posts up this week. Your goat cart is so cute, I must have one of those, too, but I want the goats to go with it, of course!

  27. So cute! my fav is the Blue Moon pumpkin....(least I think that's the official name for it) wish I could find some in my area! Love the cart and a little trick with getting a new roof.......earplugs, earplugs, earplugs...the banging is going to get to you...headphones or earplugs.

    Good luck!

  28. I can't imagine anyone not liking orange...especially this time of year...but c'est la vie! Love yours all tucked in that darling cart.
    I agree...bittersweet comes with a bittersweet price tag in my neck o'the woods. How can something that grows rampant in other parts of the country to the point of being invasive, cost so much down in these parts? Seems to me they ought to be paying us to take some of it off their hands...LOL!
    Here's to fall...my favorite time of the year.

    votre installation est superbe , un petit stand de citrouilles
    ce n'est pas le carrosse de Cendrillon ; mais presque ::::

  30. The little cart is the perfect porch accessory! The display says 'fall' in the nicest way.

  31. Your cart is absolutely perfect, inside or out. I have a favorite display for my front porch, it is a large aqua watering can my dad gave me, I fill it with silk flowers and build my table displays around it. Love the way I can use it year round, like your little cart!

  39. Your wagon load of pumpkins is just too adorable. I love the way you placed each one, perfect composition! Your photo looks like something from a magazine. Great job on the screen too. I love the idea of having the written word in it like that, and makes a great backdrop for the perfect pumpkin photo!

  40. Hi Debra, I love your goat cart. It's so great to display all kinds of things and your pumpkins look wonderful in it. You can probably guess that I'm one of those "no orange fall gals". Therefore I especially like your white pumpkins and the cute pinky blush one. Your screen looks beautiful now. Great makeover!
    Have a happy week!
    Hugs,
    Julia

  45. Love that cart! Your display is cute and your papered screen behind the cart is really unique! I love all the colors of fall including orange. I collected a mix of pumpkin colors last year and enjoyed them. I'm hoping to get mine this weekend.

  48. Debra, thought I would let you know that I got those "blush" pumpkins by accident after tossing seeds from a previous, very orange, jack-o-lantern! They came up the next spring and I had 4 beautiful, blush pumpkins for fall decorating. I did save the seeds and tossed them at the end of my summer garden this year, but the vines dried up before they got very large. I do have a few small ones on my mantle but you can bet I will baby them next year! Love your goat cart and multi-pumpkin display!

  51. You do such a beautiful job of decorating and gathering things together, but I am truly in love with that screen! I am pinning this. I am so inspired to make something similar. I was lucky enough to find a bunch of old doors free and I have been working my way through them.

  52. Your cart and pumpkin vignette are a delightful welcome to fall.
