Pumpkins on a Platter

It was a chilly fall morning and the Bean and I we running errands, as usual, when we (I) decided to walk between Target and the quilt shop, rather than drive, and boy am I glad I did.  We passed the dollar store and I noticed all of their fall decor in the window, so we made an extra stop.  I found these three pumpkins for, you guessed it, three dollars!

I decided they needed a little sprucing up and just happened to have a can of off-white spray paint lying around.  All these puppies required were two coats, and voila, cute pumpkins for a little fall decorating.

I decided to display them on a cake plate with some acorns I collected for another project.  Actually, I mostly collected acorn caps because that is all the squirrels left behind for me.  

Now after waking up to a chilly fall morning and thinking about pumpkins for the last 15 minutes I would like some pumpkin bars, or muffins, or a pie.  Hmmm...


  1. So cute!! I am totally going to copy you - hope you don't mind :)

  2. Hmmm . . .I guess that cake plate without a LID did come in handy after all!

    Sorry this is late - I'm catching up from my trip. Missed reading your blog each day.
