The Perfect Pumpkin Pick

My friend Christine over at Salvage Chic has one of the funniest, vintage-themed blogs I know.  One of her recurring themes is to share what she has on display on her harvest table.  Her most recent table-themed post is here, and, a while back she posted this one as well.  I would encourage you to take a look at her blog, and, if you are in New England, stop by her shop someday as well.  Both experiences are well worth it.

One thing I noticed about Christine's posts though is that although she is very clever at describing her table ideas and finds, she does not typically document the where and how of her finds.  As a blogger, I want to take my readers to as detailed a level as possible with regard to my finds.  Not only do I want to share the photo above of the gorgeous pumpkin I found this weekend, I want to show you where and how I selected it.

Personally, I like to dress up when I go out into the pumpkin patch.  A vintage Gunne Sax gown in a Renaissance style is just the perfect outfit.   Also, I like to take along a personal photographer to capture every moment of the search and find.  This perfect pumpkin was found at a patch in Scituate, Massachusetts.

In my opinion, this attention to detail really adds to both the pumpkin-picking and blog-reading experience.  Don't you?  What do YOU think Salvage Chick?  What are YOU wearing on your hunt?

  1. While I don't think you should reveal all treasure seeking secrets, I must say you look absolutely "Expectant" in this ivory lace...something you are not telling us? It's just gorgeous on you, oh, and the pumpkins, yeah, they look great.
