Celebrate Autumn

It seems like I've been doing that a lot this week! But it was also this week's Living Lovely challenge so that could be part of it. :)

I finally got to decorate some white pumpkins (see below) and I finally got a video put together I meant to do a year ago. So thanks Heidi for the kick in the behind!

A celebration of Autumn: (if you'd like to watch it a bit bigger you can click here)





These are just the wee little pumpkins but they actually last quite a while and they are the kind my friend likes and since they are for her...well, it just makes sense. I decorated them with paint and glitter.



This last one I was going to try the "paper lace doily as a stencil" thing but the pumpkins were just so small that even the smallest paper doily wouldn't fit, so I freehanded the same kind of look by making dots with the handle end of my paintbrush. Not quite as pretty, but it works!

You got some great shots for your video! Nice.

I am in love with white pumpkins this year. Yours are adorable (just like all of your other creations!).

In response to your comment about the "shallot debacle," I think ignorance at the library is WAY worse than Wal-Mart. To an extent, I expect that of The Wal. But, the library?! Now, that is heinous!
Oh yeah, and I have read "The Eyre Affair." Awesome story! You will enjoy it. :)

I think the white pumpkins make much better fall decor than the orange ones... they're just more elegant. Definitely a place for gaudy and colorful, but... ;-)

Found you via SITS! Hope you're having a great Monday!

Cute, cute, CUTE!

I love white pumpkins, too. I'm just not that creative with them, though. ;)
