Hello everyone! What a day! We had very heavy rains (again) yesterday and last night around 2 am a huge oak fell over (very common in Atlanta) and knocked out the power lines to my neighborhood. Thankfully it fell away from the person's house and since it was in the a.m. no was driving around. So as far as I know there wasn't anyone hurt, but we had no power until about 12:30 this afternoon.
The dog is scared of the dark (and loud noises etc) so he kept me up all night(or should I say morning). Anyway, I didn't feel at all like doing anything I actually was supposed to do today (like wash floors and clean out the fridge). Instead I played with the hot glue and a pumpkin and pulled out some plates and hung a new mirror that I got at the thriftstore.
I took various Christmas picks that were lime green and glittery and cut them up and hot glued them to the top of this white pumpkin.
I chose lime green because that's an accent color I use but you could do traditional Autumn colors if you like. Just snip off each little piece on a pick and arrange them in a pleasing way on top of any color pumpkin. An orange pumpkin with traditional fall colors would be pretty!
My one truly antique piece of red transferware. I think all the pictures are clickable?
Isn't this a neat plate rack? A very overpriced (at least I think so) home furnishings boutique in my town was having a warehouse sale (75% off) so I grabbed this and couple of Christmas Ornaments. I don't normally even bother going in this store other than the warehouse sale days!
Well that's all I've done so far today besides drink copious amounts of coffee!
I want to show you what a reader sent me. Look at the cute monogrammed pumpkin that Anne made. She liked the one I made so she made one for her family. Isn't that whole thing so pretty! Love it!
Tracey is having a give away of her two books "Frugal Luxuries" and "Frugal Luxuries By the Seasons" on her blog Frugal Luxuries. Scroll down to her Friday post. These are two of my favorite books!
I'll be posting my November book give away on Sunday. So check back for that!
I don't mind answering questions at all but, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE give me an email addy if you don't have a blog that you keep current. It's very frustrating to go to someone's blogger account, access their blog only to find out that the last time they posted was July of last year and no contact info. I never know if I'm wasting my time or not. You can get a GMail or Yahoo email account if you don't want to use your regular one.
