The Crashed Pumpkin Repair and More Fall Decor

Y'all may be familiar with the
monogram pumpkins from Hobby Lobby.
No, they don't come adorned with berries or leaves.
And what MIGHT not be familiar with is
something that looks like this.

the Big Crash and Smash Cover Up...
See, it all started like this. We were headed
home from shopping when hubby  
spied a truck he wanted to stop and see...
while driving 60 mph...
did a nose dive in my car and a 180 degree turn...
down goes the pumpkin out of the seat...
{Perhaps I should have buckled Him in}
it smashed and crashed on top of 
another pumpkin I'd bought for my DIL...
I could hear the crunching of the ceramic...
There must have been steam coming from my
ears and smoke from eyes...
HE KNEW he was in for it...
No words, all the way home...
Seeing how it was HIS fault with no chance of
getting another H {I'd just bought the last two}
He set right to work with super glue, 
doing the best with what was left of 
the shards... when it dried, I added some
remnants of odd berries and leaves.
I guess it'll work... 

This is a shelf top swag made of fall picks.

Happy Friday Y'all!
