falling for white…

I don’t do much for fall, but, did make a fabric pumpkin to sit on my iron baby bed.  I cut a 36” circle for this one—it’s pretty big.

I do want to share one of my pins with you.

I just love the look of concrete pumpkins and shayna at woodgrain cottage has a great tutorial showing how to make them.  --it’s on my to do list:)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

last weekend, I mixed up some chalk paint.  (1 cup of paint and 7 tablespoons of plaster of paris) it’s thick and gritty going on, covers great, and sands beautifully.  I like it:)

here’s the paint on an old oak piece found at tipton’s french flea market this summer.
