Cute Little Smellies!

6:00:00 AM

How adorable are these little pumpkins????

They are called putka (pudka) pods....
 They are miniature pumpkin shaped seed pods from India. They are used for holiday decoration and crafts.

These are new to me but let me tell you.... 
they are so adorable!  And they smell great! 
Like cinnamon!

The pods I bought are died orange and look exactly like little pumpkins. I've also seen them in yellow, red and green for fall decorating....

I added a photo of a black crow to this mason jar... 
it makes a great Halloween photo display!

There are a zillion decorating ideas for these little cuties!
How about adding them to a wreath or stringing them like cranberries for garland?

I bought my pudka pods from 
a great Etsy shop! 

Enjoy my finds!
