Have you ever had so much to say and just don't know where to start?
Yeah, that's me today.
I will try and distract you with a lot of pictures in case I ramble on...
Friends can do that... ramble.. you know.
I guess by now all of you have started to jazz up your homes with fall.
They have some really neat Fall Home Tours going on now too.
Makes me wish I could just pack my bags and visit each one.
How fun that would be!
I love being able to swoon over all of your homes and enjoy so many neat styles.
So many personalities.
You learn a lot about a person from their decorating I believe.
Please don't judge me too harsh...lol
I often wonder what my decor says about me.
Monochromatic... but soothing.
Dusty... but loved.
Yep.. that would be me
I find I do the same thing with my wardrobe. You?
Now changing the subject just a bit...
What do you do with your old pumpkins?
Do you pitch em out?
Year before last I saved mine.
Well .. not the pumpkin itself but the stem.
I know, my husband thought I was weird having a bag of stems drying in the shed.
Fast forward one year and a bag full of dried stems..
You can perform
Stemoplasty on your pumpkins.
You heard that right, Stemoplasty.
I talked about it here last year
I took my old plastic/foam pumpkins and removed the ugly faux stem.
I replaced them with my dried real stems.
On the one below, I even added a leaf and some moss.
I have yet to buy a pumpkin this year.
I know I will cave though...
Something about having the real deal I guess.
Our problem here in the deep south is it's so hot...
You place your pumpkins outside and a week later... mush.
They rot and ugh... it's just not pretty. trust me
It's hard to believe that this pumpkin below was once a very un-natural neon orange with a hideous plastic stem.
You can see how I painted these lil darlings here
Am I out of pictures already?
I still have so much rambling left ...just kidding...maybe.
Speaking of friends and rambling and get togethers...
Will you be going to the Chapel Market?
If so, I hope to see you there.
It's gonna be so much fun!!!
