I've never really decorated for Autumn or Thanksgiving or any of that. I think I always felt the it was way to close to decorating for Christmastime and therefore too much work and more overwhelming than I needed to mess with. :) This year, for some strange reason, I am inspired! I'm wanting to just have a fun two seasons. Fall is my favorite time of year, followed by winter as a close second. I have some interesting ideas for the environment I would like to create in my house for my family and I don't want to do it last minute, so I'm getting a head start on my project list for the holidays. Then, perhaps, I will be able to chill out and just enjoy the season! It could happen. No, I really mean it. :)
Okay, so here is the first in my series:
These made me think of Cinderella....shiny.
I found these unfinished ceramic craft pumpkins at Hobby Lobby for 40% off, hey-hey! Love Hobby Lobby! Anyway, some burnt umber acrylic paint for the stems and the grooves and then some gold glitter for a bit of bling and I really like how they turned out.
These rather large acorns, too, were 40% off and all they needed was a little glitter to top them off. Shiny makes me happy. :)
I've got some other items in the works and I'm pretty exited to see how they turn out. I'll give you a hint. Topiaries. That is all for now.
