Autumn at the Arboretum: The Great Pumpkin Festival

“There are three things I have learned never to discuss with people: religion, politics and The Great Pumpkin.”        -Linus from It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Linus was reticent to discuss his fascination of The Great Pumpkin with his friends. And really, who can blame him? It wasn’t a popular subject. Even his sister, Lucy, thought he was crazy.

“That stupid blockhead of a brother of mine is out in the pumpkin patch making his yearly fool of himself.”

I drive on Skillman daily. But rarely do I venture all the way down to where it dead ends at La Vista. Thankfully, on Monday, I did. Much to my delight, I found yet another Lakewood gem. Lakewood Consignment Studio caught my eye…and I’m fairly certain my quick lane change and last minute turn into their parking lot made a screeching sound like the one you hear in the movies. As I enter their shop, my initial reaction was disbelief and weak knees. Two woven wicker, vintage Neiman Marcus chair  sat before me. They were priced exceptionally well and if they would have fit in our little Lakewood abode, I would have immediately snatched them up.  (more…)
