As a lover of pumpkins, I was thrilled to see that Beth at Food As Art was hosting a Pumpkin Party so I decided to join in with all you pumpkin lovers and share my pumpkins with you.
The white pumpkins are my only real pumpkins. The rest are
fake faux. Love the little mini boos. These cuties sit on the island in my kitchen.
This glittery pumpkin which was a Home Goods find occupies the end of my fireplace mantel. I added the bow.
My stained glass pumpkin sits on the hearth. Love the way the light reflects on the tile.
This is the centerpiece of my dining table.
This was a fun modge podge project. I covered some $1.00 pumpkins from the dollar store with animal print napkins.
This is my foyer. The glass balls on the lamp remind me of pumpkins.
And last but not least, here is a ceramic pumpkin vignette on a small demilune table in the hallway by my foyer.
Anyone interested in a simple recipe whose only two ingredients are pumpkin and chocolate cake mix? If so, read on. I have to admit that I have not made it yet, but plan to bake some of these this weekend. This recipe came from the Hungry Girl newsletter and is a Weight Watchers Fave.
Yum Yum Brownie Muffins
1 box devil’s food cake mix
1 can solid pack pumpkin (15 oz.)
Directions: Mix the two ingredients together. Don’t add anything else that may be mentioned on the back, such as eggs, oil or water. The mixture will be very thick and you will be tempted to add in other things to make the batter smoother. DO NOT DO THIS AS IT WILL RUIN EVERYTHING! Place batter into muffin tins or mini muffin tins lined with paper or sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Makes 12 regular or 36 mini muffins.

I can’t wait to bake some of these. Thanks for stopping by to see my pumpkins. If you try the recipe, please let me know how it turns out.
