I Don't Know...

What I'm going to throw together and wear for 
But I do know I'll wear this!
It's perfume, called Halloween!
What could be more perfect?

Pumpkin Blooms, But no Pumpkins!

At this rate I may have pumpkins by Christmas!

But then I'll have to worry about a freeze.
Or Fairy Godmother could wave her magic wand...
 Well, yes I do believe!

Spray Paint!

Well, that wild hair struck again!
Yep, while sorting and cleaning out all
the left over cans of paint...I may need those colors,
I found a can of ocean blue.  Never used!
Well I took care of that really quick, what to spray?
You know I'll find something,
And I did!

These stools used to be a creamy yellow, but hey
we all need to jump once in awhile.
Mind you, this is totally the opposite of what I would normally do,
So I rubbed tinted wax on them, just to tone the color down,

I don't know if they suit me yet, but as I emptied the can
I kept thinking I should have used a safer color, like
Pumpkin Orange!

Be well!

Well, Whatever it is...

it looks like it needs to be altered!

Actually, it's a  rusted vent piece I pulled out of 
the chimney stack when I was repairing a hole in it.
But I think it wants to be an altered crown!

Be well!

Get Ready...

The Boys from Up North, 
are coming for a visit!

I had to step away from orange and black for a bit,
so I could make room for the boys!
Just have to add some finishing touches, 
and then we can all play in the snow!

The Shuffle...

Several years ago, I made this cupboard out of old doors.

And the inside, plus Little Girl, (don't mind her, she has to inspect everything.)
Since I have 10 foot ceilings, this piece was perfect, but 
then my daughter saw it and guess what, it ended up in her house.

I was on the hunt for a new cupboard, couldn't really find what I wanted
and ended up with an old TV unit, from the 90s, but it did 
have a old French pine look.  I wish I'd taken a photo of it, but I didn't!
I took the doors off, painted it, didn't quite finish it because I really
didn't care for it.  

This past weekend my daughter had a garage sale...what a great way to 
unload  the piece!  I rushed to finish the paint job, distressed and
waxed it down, trudged it through the house and out the door...Mr.
Honey did help, he held the door open.
I truck the piece over to the garage sale, unload it, and
what do you think my daughter said?
"OH, I think I want it!  It's smaller and would look better in my 
house than the big one!
I'll trade it for the big one!"  Okay!

So I truck this one back home, which is really heavy, being made of 
100 year old solid wood. 
But it does hold my all white collection.
For now I'll leave it black, and fill every nook and cranny!

Be well!
