I am one of those that rue the way retailers rush each season and holiday.
I'm the person looking for a winter coat in January (the nerve of me!) only to find bathing suits out.
So, it's pretty funny to me that after 47 years I've "given in" (almost).
Right after the 4th of July, retailers around here started stocking their shelves with Halloween/Fall goodies. I would look away (LOL).
With summer winding down now and seeing all the lovely goodies being listed on Etsy, I've actually given in (just a bit).
I didn't mind this white pumpkin. I had fun embellishing it last night with creamy stained seam binding, vanilla fibers and millinery in varying shades of browns.
I found these adorable pumpkins in one of my favorite shops. I'm debating on painting them white or not. What do you think?
I love this wood compote. Our family had a larger one growing up and it held the nuts that were put out on our holiday table. NEVER once did I ever see one of these in someone elses home. Not until I began junkin, thrifting, collecting and selling online did I find these vintage compotes. Some left in their original browns and others painted up.
I painted it white and distressed it A LOT. Love the way it came out.
Have a great Wednesday!
Linking up today with Faded Charm's White Wednesday.
