White Pumpkins

Again, I was inspired by a blog. Again, I have no idea who to give credit to for this pumpkin inspiration. I must confess, I read a lot of blogs, I mean a lot of blogs! I do know that after I read the post I went to my local dollar store and bought six pumpkins. That was in early September and could be the reason I have no idea where this idea came from. I do know that these will be on our Thanksgiving table.

I could not find six pumpkins all the same color. That may be the reason it took so long to make these little pumpkin topiaries. I haven't been in a painting mood. But I have decided to really try and finish everything I start. All I needed was the Spanish moss and a could kick in the pants.

I am not quite sure if I like the pot painted this way. There is always tomorrow. It could be another color by noon.

This little green bird is well traveled, it has been in a few different arrangements in the last few months. It looks right at home here peeking around the corner.

Oh, Denise!
So pretty, as always!
Are the pumpkins real or "faux"?
They look very real... Just wondering if you can use them again next year?

And I hear you, about not knowing who to give credit to! I'm always forgetting where I saw an idea or an inspiration (especially if I don't act on it immediately!!!) There's just so much out there and so many creative people (YOU being one of them!)
