This morning I really wanted to get my front of my house finally finished decorated for the fall. I had it half done with flowers and a few small pumpkins that I got from a friend the other day but with Halloween a week away I really wanted to finish the doorway up. What do you think of my fall themed front door?
Yes, I know I have a TON of pumpkins but here is the best part of this whole post, how I got them this morning and the reason why I have so many of them!
This morning a friend and I head-out to find a farmer who had hay-bales to decorate with. We saw some at this farm and she knocked and asked them if they would sell any to us. They charged us 3 zlotys each($1) and when we drove around to get them from the barn we saw pumpkins and asked about them as a pumpkin patch was next on our list to drive too. Well it was one stop shopping for us! What I paid for them was a 1/4 of the price of what I would have at a local grocery store and the best part was I got them right from the farmer! So how neat is that?
No my Polish is not that good to go knocking on a complete strangers door to ask them these kind of questions so I am so glad to have a Polish friend that thinks like I do on stuff like this that will do all the talking for me. We defiantly hit the pumpkin jackpot today!! Now comes the fun part of carving some of them but then comes the sad part as I am realizing that my son is not here to join us this family tradition and that he is staring his own Halloween traditions now and my adopted daughter is living LONG 6+ hour drive away this year so she will not be going us this year either like she did last year!
Oh, I hate getting old!
What Halloween traditions are you doing this year?
