Weekend Inspiration: Wagons and Wheelbarrows for Fall

Hi Friends and Happy Weekend!

I've mentioned before that you can usually tell what I'm up to around here from 
taking a peek at my Pinterest feed. If I have an upcoming project or an idea
 I usually go to Pinterest first to check out inspiration and creative ideas.
 I thought it would be fun to share the inspiration process by bringing you along.

I'm thinking about having this be a weekend type of continuing weekly post. I like to share fun little things that I run across online that may not be big enough for a full post. I've done this before and with all the great online ideas swirling around with the Holidays coming up I'm going to try to get back with that concept, "Weekend Inspiration".

Pumpkin Filled Goat Cart  here at Common  Ground

As you might have guessed, I'm looking for ideas for filling my goat cart with Fall goodies, and then a small wheelbarrow for the front porch. Here, I'm sharing a couple of looks that I've done in the past, but I thought I'd try to mix it up a little this Fall and take a cue from some other great pics on Pinterest.

I painted the black goat cart gray a couple of years ago so it would work better for all the seasons. Black was wonderful for Fall, but it wasn't too pretty in Spring and Summer... so now it's a distressed gray.

I've grabbed some boxes for height and a piece of burlap for a base, 
so I'll get started soon. But for now let's take a look 
at some beautiful ideas for the Fall Porch and Garden.

Pinterest has been around for awhile, and one of the downfalls is that many of the photos no longer have the original source. There are a lot of bogus sites out there getting traffic and making money off blogger's photos, mine included. So unless I find the original source I won't be giving the fake sites credit. If you recognize any of the photo sources please let me know and I'll share it. 

Here are some of my wheelbarrow,
 wagon and goat cart favorites.

Pumpkin Wheelbarrow Display  Green and cream pumpkins are well-suited for early fall, when summer still lingers. Assemble the gourds in a wooden wheelbarrow, adding berry vines for extra color and stacking pumpkins to give height to the tableau. As the season progresses, incorporate more orange and yellow gourds to capture the changing landscape of autumn.

One thing I noticed is that most of these pics have pumpkins/gourds, mums/sunflowers, and some sort of vines incorporated in the mix; Either Bittersweet or Grapevine. I found some mums and pumpkins last week, so I'm off to dig in my stash and try to see what I can come up with. Have a great weekend!

You can see most of these pics on my Pinterest Boards,

Hope to see you Monday Evening for All About Home.

  1. Thanks for posting these pictures. Pretty! I hate I sold my goat cart when we downsized 7yrs ago.

  2. These are all so great. I want to find a cute cart or wheel barrel for my front yard to fill at the holidays.
    Happy Saturday. Have a great weekend

  3. What a fabulous compilation of carts/wheelbarrows. I know myself, I hesitate to use Pin photos, because it is way to hard to find the source of some! You did them all justice, and I always loved your little goat cute, no matter what you put in it!

  4. Debra, these are beautiful inspiration photos. I've always wanted a cart, but don't really have a spot to display one. Thanks for sharing though. Makes me dream!

  5. Debra, so much beautiful inspiration. I know what ever you come up with will be gorgeous. I love the idea of this series. Gives everyone beautiful pictures to see and create.

    By the way, love the wagon grey. Enjoy your Monday


  6. Oh, I'm so in love with the idea of Fall wagons and wheelbarrows! Maybe because they remind me of fairytales or maybe because they look enchanting and magical on their own. Either way, I love your selection here. Pinterest is definitely a never ending source of wonderful ideas.

  7. Thanks for posting really looks terrific love the ideas. Happy fall!

  8. Oh my goodness I need a PIN ALL button!! Just amazing!

  9. So many amazing carts full of fall! Yours looks great in distressed gray, can't wait to see it full! I love Pinterest, and always allow a daily treat of browsing for a few minutes, a guilty pleasure!

  10. I love, love all of the photo's.

  11. I love your cart of pumpkins! Pinned.


I love hearing from you. Feel free to comment, big or small.
