Not quite ready for super fall-y things?

I'm right there with ya. More beach days are needed in addition to more cookouts and outfits consisting of shorts and spaghetti straps. Unfortunately, what tends to happen is I push back all the fun fall activities until late in September when, by then, my entire virtual life is bombarded with Thanksgiving and Christmas everything and fall seems to be already slipping away.

So, how do I merge the two? How can I extend my summer while also participating in all the fall thangs? This craft might help....

Ever hear of succulent pumpkins? They're a thing.

Since I'm not ready to carve a jack-o'-lantern just yet, this seems like the perfect compromise. A great decoration to ease yourself into the season without Halloween exploding all over the place.
