It Has Begun......

Candy corn anyone? I am getting asked if I made the candy corn....Yes, I did. I had my hubby cut them with his scroll saw. I had a piece of candy corn in front of me and hand painted each and every one (front and back) adding a long comma hi-light. Then they were painted with a clear sealant coating. They have been displayed through Fall and Halloween for many, many years now.
Time for the Fall decorating to begin.........

Be sure to visit Melissa at The Inspired Room for Fall Nesting Week to see how others are decorating for Fall.

Hi Darlene,
I finally added you to my blog roll and I'm not sure why you were not on there already other than I'm lazy *smiles* but you're on there now where you belong and I totally hope that's ok with you. Wow what a run on sentence...

Am I crazy or do I remember that pumpkin being empty? Either way I love how you have that white pumpkin inside it, in fact I love the whole arrangement you've got going on. I've seen those pumpkins and had no idea what to put inside them, if anything, and now you've answered that question beautifully! It's lovely!

Thanks for all the info on your raggy garland. Do you remember how long you made the twine part? *blushes* I'm sorry, I'm really OCD about things that should be simple but I have to make them extremely difficult.

OK I've commented enough, I'll leave some room for the next person hehehehehe

Hi Darlene!

You and hubby make a great creative team, those candy corns are so chunky and so cute, I love them!

So....THAT is what you do with those pumpkins! lololololol I saw one in TJMaxx today and I was oh, this is cute, but you can't put a candle in it...I guess I did not have my creative thinking cap on, which had probably been sucked dry by my 2 boys...shopping with 2 boys...ah...now, that's fun! (sarcasm)
