I love seeing people decorate their homes inside and out with pumpkins. It's such a rich reminder -- and celebration -- of autumn.
While I like a good jack-o-lantern at Halloween, I am smitten with this pumpkin-decorating idea from Better Homes and Gardens. They recommend using a doily and black paint to stencil a pumpkin. The result is so pretty -- almost like a henna pattern.
I bet this pumpkin would look just as gorgeous for Thanksgiving as it would for Halloween.
