Repurposed Pumpkins – Gettin’ junky with it!

Can you believe it’s already September? wow. Where did summer go? I realize that some of you live for the fall season, and I have to admit, it’s always been one of my favorites.

Or how about apples that make cider, pumpkins into pies, and the endless tomato creations you can make?

Here’s what I decided to work with to create some rustically good repurposed pumpkins:

Red ticking, white canvas, barn wood scraps and railroad tie spikes…oh yeah!
