Rustic Natural Pumpkins

This post contains an affiliate link.

I have to confess that I’m not much of a shopper. Actually I’m, what I like to call, a quick peruser. If I have to go to a store for something, I’ll walk in and quickly head right to my intended target. Sure I do a quick perusal of my surroundings as I’m headed to my destination, but I rarely slow down to stop and look. If I’m looking for more than one thing, I usually make a list and have a good idea of how to get in and get out quickly with what I need.

Take Target, for instance. Whether I’m going for a birthday card or some makeup, I always head right to home decor and the Smith & Hawken aisle first and do a quick check. That’s what I did last week when I found the cutest rustic natural pumpkins. They actually only had 2 on a shelf that was pretty bare, so I quickly scooped them up and headed to my next target (no pun intended).

Rustic Natural Pumpkins from Target | www.chatfieldcourt.comAren’t they the cutest? If you read my post about adding fall to an old window last Friday, then you may have seen these beauties, but I wanted to share where I got them with you.

Every year, when I decorate for fall, I usually like to use things from nature and make a few easy-to-do decorations, but these were too cute to pass up (and sometimes it’s nice to take the easy way out and buy ready-made).

    My mister is sort of like your husband while shopping, except it’s just his indecisiveness that makes it take so long, not the reading of labels! When we make snack runs, it always takes longer than my regular weekly shopping – which is crazy! I never drag him to the mall, for which I’m sure he is grateful – though, I will admit, he has dragged me along (the shoe store he likes is, sadly, in the mall). Now, at the craft store, that’s a different story…he comes (because he is nice), and I try and hurry along, but I know I take longer than he would prefer (though he grins and bears it all the same!).
    Your pumpkins are adorable – they remind me of pine cones, without having to bake them to get any bugs out first! 😀

    Cute pumpkins…very original! I am a reluctant shopper! I love shopping in Homegoods and could be there for a long time, but I don’t like lines and hate clothes shopping and I am in and out of the grocery store, too! My teenagers on the other hand are “shop ’til you drop” types! Thank goodness they go on their own now! 😉

      I love Homegoods too but I still breeze in and out pretty quickly. Oh my goodness, isn’t clothes shopping the worst? Nothing like trying on clothes in one of those awful dressing rooms. Thank goodness there’s online shopping now so you can do try on in your own home.

    I am an in and out shopper. I always hated to take my husband along because he was a label reader and a “Oh this is new let’s try it.” I hate shopping so much I put it of until my cupboards are bare. Now quilt shops are an entirely different story. I could spend a day in a large shop. Love those pumpkins. Debbie

    I’m a hunt it down and bag it shopper, Kristi. My girlfriends tell me I show like a guy. And they’re right. And clothes shopping? Hah! No. I really, really don’t like to shop for clothes, so if I find something I like I buy it in every color. Yeah that’s a guy thing, too. Now, having said that, put me in a thrift store or a flea market and I’ll tell you a whole different story. I just don’t happen to like “stores”.

      I get not liking stores Nancy, and as long as I can order online, I have no desire to go to a store again. I do enjoy flea markets and thrift stores but I still hurry through and scan just like I do in Target. I think that my back injury has contributed a lot to this habit of mine, stopping and standing is just too painful so I walk and scan. Get’s the job done. 😉

      Thanks! You’re so right Deb, decor that lasts through the seasons is the best kind. 🙂

    Those are the cutest pumpkins ever! Who doesn’t love Target? Great find! I love what you did with them. 🙂 P.S: My husband is a shopping hater, too. Even when it’s for him. I always leave that guy at HOME.
