Putting pumpkins on a pedastal!

We were given a piano this past year (thanks to my mother-in-law!) and this is my first Fall getting to decorate it! I wasn't sure what to do when I pulled out my boxes of Fall decorations, but this is what I came up with.

I bought a bag of these small pumpkins at Michael's a couple of years ago and have used them for favors, fillers and now, as a nice display of their own! Simply turn a small ice cream dish upside down and give them just a little boost ~ I love how they look all in a row!

Oh what a great idea! We just got a piano last month and I have thinking about how I wanted to decorate the top of it. You have inspired me : )

I just found your blog from your guest post at MSM, can I just say thank you for sharing your life on your blog? I feel so very encouraged to try harder and be more excellant, not because I need to compete or prove my worth, but because of the joy it gives to my heart and the blessing it is to others. Thank you! May the Lord bless you in your work today!

I have a little home magazine that I self-publish. I would love to print your pumpkin post for the next issue if you are interested. (The readership is very small-- just my friends). My e-mail is jorddanicole20@hotmail.com

If one doesn't have a piano, you can always use a mantle from a fireplace, an entertainment center or even a book case and do this pumpkin idea. :-)
