Friends, it’s time! Fall is officially here. Yay! I am ready to do some pumpkin picking and jack-o-lantern carving! And I’m waiting for the leaves to change colors right before my eyes! Yahoo! How about you?
Yesterday, I spent the afternoon visiting several fab antique shops. The trip to Western MD/Northern VA was somewhat spontaneous however I’ve long anticipated stepping foot in these shops…Chartreuse & Co., Sweet Clover and The Old Lucketts Store. Sometimes you just need a good ol’ fashioned road trip! My excursion has definitely given me the inspiration and kick in the pants I needed.
I love this simple, spooky vignette at Lucketts…I might have to put something similar together.
I also had the pleasure of meeting Cassie at Sweet Clover. What a doll! I’ve been following her blog for years and feel like I know her life story so it was fun to meet her in person. Plus, she and her partners curated a great barn sale full of vintage goodness. Yes, I found some new treasures! Bonus, Cassie schooled me on how to take a decent selfie…
Sometimes some new scenery is just the right dose of inspiration! I’m headed to a milk paint workshop for the next two days. I’m sure even more inspiration will strike. Can’t wait to share.
With that said, let me share a few pumpkin projects today that may inspire you…
Stocking Pumpkin: Even easier than carving a pumpkin – just pop it into a fishnet or graphic stocking for instant spooktackular impact.
Safety in Numbers: There’s something so simply appealing about an abundance of mini pumpkins or gourds. It looks great with reindeer moss, pinecones, acorns and other natural elements too. Start filling a dough bowl or harvest basket!
Pumpkin Tea Lights: Easy! Just carve out the top and pop a tea light candle in.
Vomiting Pumpkin Salsa: So gross but so good! Seriously, this carved pumpkin face makes such a conversation piece at a Halloween party.
