Smashing Pumpkins

I've been looking forward to Pumpkin Day so much.

First up I get to wear these cute ear-rings.

Secondly, in last December's advent swap one of my gifts from my sister T was this smiley pumpkin brooch and so at long, long last I got to wear it.

The final reason is I got to bake a pumpkin pie.
It's been on my to try list for ages.
Of course I cheated and bought a tin of pumpkin puree from Waitrose, I really couldn't be faffed with doing that part myself.
I can't tell you what it tastes like yet as it's not long out of the oven, but I can tell you it smells divine.
I'll deliver my foody review tomorrow.


  1. Awww, how cute are your earrings and brooch. I've never made a pumpkin pie either so I'm looking forward to hearing what you think of it. I don't think you cheated buying the tin of pumpkin puree, I think the Americans use tins too.

  2. I love, love, love pumpkin pie. Love it. I've got a tin stashed in the cupboard, I need to make a pie soon.
    I've done the faffing around with making pumpkin puree, trust me, it's easier with a tin and doing it yourself isn't worth the effort.

    Such cute pumpkin goodies!
    Have a glorious weekend xx

  3. I can smell the pie cooking ...
    Love your pumpkin earrings and brooch.

    All the best Jan

  4. The brooch and earrings are so cooL!
