Holdin' On

While many in the retail industry and blog world are rushing into Christmas decorating I am holding on dearly to fall.
I love the fall! I enjoy taking down the scary Halloween decor and replacing it with
the bounties of the season.
A few years back I bought these pumpkins. I grew tired of their color almost immediately.
They looked old and dirty.
This year I decided to change their appearance.
I desired the muted green of the real pumpkins I adore.
I sprayed them leafy green.
Then washed them with a greenish white.I love their new makeover! They're the perfect bright spot of color in
my little pumpkin patch
.

Considering it's still 80 degrees here in southern CA, prepping for Christmas would just be depressing!

Those look so great! The white wash makes them look so real. Your blog is such an inspiration. Your mantle really puts me in the mood for all. The leaves are just starting to turn in my town. Fall is just meant for feeling cozy.
