My Oh My, Pumpkin Pie

Every year I like buying pumpkins, carving them, and enjoying every wonderful thing Autumn has to offer, but this year I started a new tradition...

Turning this:

 Into this:

I would be happy just smelling this pie, let alone tasting it because it smells like fall and Thanksgiving. I think I need buy a pumpkin spice candle :)

What are your fall traditions? Is making pumpkin pie one of them?

Oh dearest, my favorite thing to make to EAT is CREAM OF MUSHROOM SOUP with ROASTED CHESTNUTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And then for Thanksgiving, I make a PAVOCHON. That is a Puerto-Rican style turkey!!! IT IS TDF! And of course, candle light, grapevine twigs and other dried and natural elements are part of my décor that I so enjoy.

DEAR ONE, THANK YOU FOR VISITING ME with such encouraging words of kindness about my art! I am taking those steps, little by little; work is OVERWHELMING and as tough as it is to make a living out of art and writing, I am seriously thinking of making some "alterations" in my job...going into substitute teaching. The system is changing too much and too fast with no relief in sight for bringing in MORE TEACHERS to help out with the needs. In my dreams, I would work as a sub and TRY to make a go out of art,but in reality, I am a long way off from being able to do that. But, I am in my PRIMARY stage of seeing what can happen. WOW, am I a dreamer!!!

HOW ARE YOU PRECIOUS? I have a new email and have lost all my contacts. Here it is:

Here in Greece you don't easily find pumpkins, which is such a shame!We don't celebrate Halloween either but I do.I wish I had a pumpkin to carve or make a pie though...

Never made a pumpkin pie but I'd love to try it. First find a pumpkin, then find a recipe. And how I wish I could smell a pumpkin candle once.... No way they have these around here.
Enjoy the pie!
Bye,
Marian

Rosie said...

Hello Shauna dear,
Oh yes the smell of a pumpkin pie...or an apple crisp in the oven is most definitely the smell of a good fall day.
How are you dear one? It has been so long since I have blogged, but just thought I would stop by and leave a HUG on your doorstep...Hope you are well...xoxo...Rosie

I like to use pumpkins for Halloween and I love making mashed pumpkin with a little bit of cinnamon.

fashionhogger said...

AND?! Have you succeeded? I made pumpkin pie from scratch once, and it took ALL DAAAAY! Hahahaha!

Laura *You Stir Me* said...

A new fall wreath, pretty candles, taking out furry throw pillows and cooking a couple meals each week that involve squash are my fall traditions!

Camylla Leonardi said...

Here in FL we dont really enjoy fall as much as everywhere else does. Mostly because it doesnt get chilly and the leaves dont really change colors, but just following fall through my bloggie friends already makes me jealous! heheh
Maybe I'll buy some pumpkins and try to make it feel like fall!!

Happy Monday,

oh, i love baking a pumpkin pie. the smell is so worth it. i've never done it from a real pumpkin though, but always wanted to try it.

Meta Musings said...

that looks amazing. i love carving pumpkins and roasting the seeds...the house smells like fall. xx

Meg {henninglove} said...

yes pumpkin pie is a must for sure!! other fall traditions are going apple picking and of course making an apple pie among other great apple recipes. then going to a pumpkin patch and picking out that oh so fabulous pumpkin to carve and then the list just goes on i love fall!

Annie said...

Pumpkin pie is my absolute favorite dessert! I definitely try to make at least one each fall. I've never made one from scratch though.. I also always try to buy some pumpkin spice candles (still need to that!)
Excited for another weekend in the Virginia countryside soon :) hoping to maybe pick up some pumpkins! Happy Monday Shawna!
p.s. so glad you're still liking the face wash.. I'll have to give it a try! xo

Diana said...

Youve made homemade pumpkin pie?!! YUM! I want some, I actually dont think Ive ever had homemade pumpkin pie! We love carving pumpkins and seeing what cool stencils we can get online. Sometimes my husband (ok this might be corny) carves my name into his pumpkin!!

Martina said...

Hi, what a fun nwe header you have - love it! Have never made pumpkin pie, but wil! One of our fall traditions is baked apples - filled with nuts and jam, and eaten with whipped cream!

Madeleine Roberts said...

I love pumpkin pie and I adore pecan pie. For fall and Thanksgiving those were my families go to pies with, of course, whip cream on top. But sadly, I can no longer eat pumpkin or pecan pie because I allergic to eggs. I no longer eat wheat too :(
So I guess I'm searching for a new fall tradition..perhaps a gluten/ egg free pumpkin pie :)

Looks yummy - we don't have this here in Australia. Maybe I should look for a recipe - or better still someone that might make one for me! Love the top photo too.

Happy, happy weekend to you,
