I love that sometimes,
but this year it just hasn't been as fun for some reason.
I guess because I know it's just for a few weeks &
then I'll have to take it all down
& do it AGAIN
with my Christmas (NO, not yet) decorations.
In attempt to "keep it simple"
(& last me thru Thanksgiving),
I put together this sassy little centerpiece for my kitchen table.
A friend of mine sprays her pumpkins with a clear coat of shellac
& they are the prettiest I have ever seen!
I'm too cheap for Shellac...(ha)
so I picked up a can of Rustoleum Clear Gloss & decided to give it a try.
Here are my pumpkins (& K9 American helper)...
and after a coat of the clear gloss...
nicer, prettier... ;)
They looked rad on my kitchen table,
but still needed a little "something-something"
(that's pronounced "sumpin-sumpin", in a quick fashion♥)...
I picked a few leaves off the magnolia tree to add some garnish...
& then paired it with some iron chargers and my favorite "La Plates"...
and for about $18 I have a nice centerpiece for fall (happy). :)
Have you guys been decorating?
I would love to see!

I've got to get busy here,

Rad Brad is finishing up on the bunks this week.
My lights came in yesterday (SO happy with them).
I found some fabric at Joanns for new curtains &
I'm trying to decide what do put on the bunk beds...
I'm thinking quilts...
ahem, like this...
P Daddy would blow a fuse...
I'll keep you posted,
I can't wait to
Happy Thursday, Friends!
