Pumpkins and a Vintage Tonka Truck

This past weekend, my husband and I visited some antique stores in a small, nearby town.   I picked up a few things including this vintage Tonka truck.  My hubby had one like it when he was little.  I would love to have one that was all metal but those are out of my price range.

I thought the yellow would look cute with the pumpkins out front.  So I loaded up the back with a pile of pumpkins.

This sits on the front sidewalk near my old bushel basket of geraniums. 

The temperatures dropped this weekend and there was a threat of frost...whaaaat?  I'm not ready for that.  I'm hoping my geraniums have a little bit longer to bloom.  They're one of my favorites.

My figs aren't ripe yet either, so please let there be a few more weeks of warm temperatures.  Blue skies and 70s...yep, that'd be perfect :)

After decorating a little more out front, I got in the mood to tweak the living room as well.

Aren't those the best fake leaves?  I wish I could remember where I got them.  It was probably the thrift store, which means I can't go back and get more :(  Oh well, at least these were a bargain.

Thanks for stopping by and God bless!!
