I have three fall blogging projects going at the same time. ha! Can you say busy!
I have been invited to participate in three different fall blog party tours and I am deep in creative mode. So much so, that I don't have an official blog post project for you today. But I have photos that I snapped from this weekend.
|I painted this pumpkin with Waverly acrylic chalk paint from Walmart this weekend. (color, cashew) It was an old orange pumpkin from my stash...and my test pumpkin. I like the way it turned out so I will be painting more old orange pumpkins!|
On Saturday I was going to go out and about for some nature photography. Well...It rained all day long. It did not sprinkle. It poured all day from morning to night. I know that there are folks who need some of this rain, so I should not complain. I changed my plans and went to the basement and began digging in my stash of fall pumpkins and such. I made a mess.
This is the beginning of a floral arrangement and a buffet tablescape. I love to use my ironstone. This is just a peek today. I will show you the completed tablescape another time.

It was hard to get good photos due to the darkness. I tried overhead lighting. I tried metering changes on my camera. Etc. Then I decided that some of the darker, moody pics would be ok.
I made a table runner with brown craft paper. It is an idea I had seen before but had never tried.
It contrasts with the formality of my dining room table...but I love to play with contrasting styles and textures.
The paper did a great job protecting my wood finish from the rough bottoms of the ironstone. I love the paper as a table runner...and will be using it again!
I had to clear some tables of their accessories ...and they landed in the parlor floor.
I added acorns and pine cones to this brass bowl for a touch of fall in the parlor.
The overhead view of my brass bowl. Yes, I started using my old brass pieces again. :-)
You might see this black and white checked table cloth in a future post. Yes you just might. :-)
I have some fall decorating plans for this basket too!
I was busy this weekend...but I cannot reveal my projects just yet.
Maybe it is a good thing that it rained Saturday. I accomplished quiet a few of my fall blogging obligations.
I am not one of those who can wait until the last minute! Whether it was a research paper in grad school or a blog commitment now...I just have to plan ahead and get it done and still have time to breathe. Now the rest of my family, not so much! ha ha.
I guess this post was a bit of a tease. I tried not to show too much. :-)
I snapped about three hundred photos during my Saturday photo shoot. Lots of editing! But I love it.
