A Bowl Full Of Pumpkins

This bowl of pumpkins sits on the table
with a little string of lights from
last Christmas.

I filled up the bottom of the bowl with pinecones,
acorns, faux vines, and even three fake pears... 
basically anything in a shade of Fall brown.
This battery pack lasted all last December
and, so far, this past week. I buried the
battery pack down under the acorns
and pinecones.

Most nights I forget to turn it off and
still it runs day and night.
Last weekend, I saw these battery lights at Lowes.
They were in the Christmas section for $10 each.
Lowes has them with red or blue lights.

When I bought these last year at a home interiors
store, they had them in bright white (these) and
ones with a yellow cast. I wish I had bought
more of them when I had the chance.

They're great for putting on wreaths, vignettes,
or even in a bowls of pumpkins.

Thanks for dropping by!


  1. Quite a special touch to add to the bowl of fall beauty! (I hope to find some lights at after-holiday sales this year).

  2. That's a great idea and it give it that extra sparkle. I bet those lights would look fabulous in a bowl of Christmas ornaments, too... :)
