falling for fall

it has only just begun to feel like fall around here (no complaints from me!), so it hadn’t occurred to me to really do any fall decorating yet.  but this week has been cooler and halloween is in 3 days, so i think it’s about time i join the party.   i picked up a dozen pint-sized pumpkins earlier in the week at faulkner’s pumpkin farm, and while i love a nice orange pumpkin, i wanted to dress them up a bit, so off i went to hobby lobby for some gold spray paint.  i sprayed the bottoms first, let them dry for about 15 minutes, then flipped them and did the tops.  i let them dry fully overnight on some parchment paper, and scattered them around the house the next day.  i love they way they look so much that i think i could get in some trouble with my can of gold spray paint.

{here’s our mantle.  i still feel it looks a little bare, but i haven’t come up with anything else to add yet.  if you’ve got an idea, send it my way.  i’m picturing brightly colored ornaments replacing those pumpkins for christmastime. }

happy fall!
