Painted Pumpkins

After seeing all of the fall decorating going on in blogland I got the bug and got some of my stuff out.  Today I wanted to show you the pumpkins that I painted last year.  I love them!


I bought these pumpkins at WalMart last year.  I think they are the $5 Better Homes and Garden pumpkins.  I used craft paint to paint them.  I used antique white, black and copper.  I free handed the black leaves on the white pumpkin.

I love polka dots!


I even made monogrammed pumpkins for the kids before I even knew monograms were cool!

Dining Room sideboard and shelves....Taylor really wanted to help!
Close up of my apothecary jars, look they are all filled!  I found the white tennis table balls at the Dollar Store and plan to make some knock off PB numbered balls.
  There are so many cute ideas floating around that I can't wait to borrow copy them!  I hope everyone has a wonderful day!
