Are You Ready for Some Football???

Lately, the world has been bursting with big, bright, beautiful pumpkins!

Pumpkin patches are cropping up, porches and steps are filled with pumpkin vignettes with autumn flowers and crunchy leaves, and pretty soon we will be carving up a spooky jack-o-lantern for Halloween night!

I love pumpkins and have my front porch all decked out with my collection from a recent pumpkin patch visit.....and I think I'm going to borrow a few and decorate them to celebrate my favorite collegiate football team. Yes, for football!

Pinterest is teaching me that I have to start thinking outside-of-the-box. Who would have thought that pumpkins and football go so well together?

Here are some of my favorite pinterest pins that have taught me that they are not just for jack-o-lanterns anymore:

This generic football pumpkin is cute and sure to appeal to the football fan in your house that follows many football teams. You can make it team-specific with colored ribbons.

For the LSU fans in my house, I spotted these clever purple and gold pumpkins ~ Geaux, Tigers! (You can easily change the colors and letters to your team's colors and/or logo.)

The Eye of the Tiger

And just to show that I'm a good sport, I'll highlight some pumpkins from some of our toughest opponents on the field!

So go grab a pumpkin and decorate it to show your spirit for your favorite team!

Collections #2 - Sea Creature Trinket Jewelry Boxes

Recently, I posted about my curio cabinet in the cottage where I house my  collection of charming vintage seashore postcards from the past.

Today, I am sharing a closer look at my collection of tiny trinket boxes,  blinged-out crustaceans and sea creatures, encrusted with crystals!

These tiny enamel trinket jewelry boxes are tucked in around my collection of sea shell topped bottles.

Of course, in keeping with my sea glass-themed cottage, I'm on the hunt for tiny trinket boxes in blues and greens that are beach themed.  Aren't they cute?

Thank you so much for stopping by the cottage day!
