Fall Decor

I'm not a huge Halloween fan, but I do like a transition between summer and the Christmas holiday.

I found these acid green styrofoam pumpkins at Tar-jay for $2.00 each. This will shock all of you, but they don't work with my color scheme  :D

So - I dug into my Annie Sloan Chalk Paint remnants - Old White, Emile (an antique lavender), Duck Egg, Antibes (a grassy green) and a mystery mix of part Paris Grey and part Old White. 

A few coats, some dark wax and in the case of the "boo" white pumpkin, a shot of German glass glitter and now you're talkin'.

This one got a shot of silver leafing - a very glam gourd.

The top of my bowed-glass china cabinet - I love the mix of rustic and refined. 

I haven't had a trick-or-treater in years; I've always lived on rural properties with long driveways which aren't exactly conducive to candy-hunters.  So I'll be having some hot cocoa that I make (with a little ancho chili powder!) while I sit in front of the fire (if it's cool enough) and read something scary - like my online dating site messages  :D
