Before I get started, I want to share a few pictures of my gate arbor. Around my house, the leaves are changing color and in some cases, falling off of the trees. Fall is in the air. I’ve been watching the morning glories on the arbor in bloom. The weather service is predicting a frost for this weekend and I’m afraid that will be the end of the blooms for this year. These pictures have nothing to do with looking at glass. I will get to that in a minute. I just couldn’t resist sharing their color with you first.
Okay, let’s discuss glass…
Don’t you hate it when you find out about a great event after it has taken place? Each year, the Great Glass Pumpkin Patch event is held at the Palo Alto Arts Center in Palo Alto, California. Thanks to Dutchbaby’s blog post from October 23, 2010, I found out about this event. Over 30 glass artisans displayed 8,000 hand-blown pumpkins. I am disappointed that I didn’t know about this event sooner. You can be sure I will be watching the Art Center’s website for next year’s event dates. Here are a few pictures from this year’s event.

Aren’t the pumpkins spectacular? Definitely go on over to Dutchbaby’s blog for more pictures and information about the event.
The only thing that would make my gate arbor look better than it did this year would be a few colorful glass pumpkins to go with it next year!
Well, it is Friday. Whew. I’m going to throw on a little Halloween costume and go trick-or-treating. Nothing fancy mind you, just a little something I’ve got stashed away in the back of my closet…
Don’t be such a scaredy cat. Go out and have a safe and happy Halloween!
