Painted pumpkins

I'm not trusted with sharp objects (just kidding) so I usually paint my pumpkins.


I can't have one without a full moon and a bare tree.


I saw an argyle painted faux pumpkin at Real Deals Home Decor and I had to make my own. Just. Had. To. I put glitter on mine too. Weee! I used an argyle sock to get the pattern figured out. No one could figure out why I was toting around a sock and a pumpkin. :)


...And moved inside. No mantel but this old dresser works for setting a stage with my super drippy candles and my pheasant feathers. (Also? those oak leaves on the cake stand have been spray painted gold. Oh yes I did!)


If you want to see a GORGEOUSLY carved pumpkin, check out what Jennifer did over at Gypsy Mare Studios.

That is really cool! Way more fun than carved pumpkins--and less sticky. :-) I should try that sometime.

You are just too creative for one person. I think you got my talent, too!!! :-)

I love your display on your dresser.

(Ken is helping me figure out how to do this comment.)
