Welcome to the Sunday Sunshine Blog Hop!

Pumpkins and Apples at the Sunday Sunshine Blog Hop

With the arrival of Autumn officially, I’m certainly noticing a theme on the blog hop!

From last week’s blog hop, we had six posts about apples and fifteen featuring pumpkins! We have a wonderful Fall theme going on, and there are so many great ideas for inspiration that have been shared.

I’m thankful for each post shared.

Here is my humble pumpkin harvest. I may have more hiding up at the top terrace, but I will need to wait til the zinnias die back to find them!

The funny-shaped pumpkin was growing between the slats of a pallet. It still looks nice to me!

I loved this puff, blowing in the wind.

What cool Fall things are you seeing besides more spiders?

Share them below!

Thanks for coming by!


We are sharing some fun things on our other channels. Here’s one fun one from last week. A Day in the Life of a Homesteading Woman—YouTube video

This is a place to share some love and spread some sunshine!

The focus of this blog hop will be: anything related to making our homes more sunny and happy! If that’s through homemade cooking, a health tip that will help another, homesteading tips, homeschool successes or real-life struggles, or just whatever God is impressing you with in your home journey, please share it!
