Blue and White Painted Pumpkins

15 Minutes

Listen, I would have had this painted pumpkin post done a little while ago but when I came in from the she-shed after finishing it up on my Wednesday Facebook Live, my husband reminded me that I needed to catch up on real housewives. Tell me I am not the only one who loves to watch other women’s drama on TV!!! I used to be so ashamed to tell people that I watched the real housewives but not today. Today, I am owning it. I bet you have a “thing” too! LOL Yeah girl, I know you do! It’s okay your secret is safe with me. No judgement here! Okay, the reason you’re here! Blue and White painted pumpkins.

I am sure you have seen my blue willow dishes in my kitchen and since I am on a pumpkin kick I thought it would be fun to be matchy matchy and paint some pumpkins to match my china! I love how these pumpkins turned out!

      Very lovely work, and they look perfect with your Blue Willow china. Now tell us about those fabulous shelf brackets in the background, please. Where did you find them?

        They're perfect in your space. I think they could be perfect in mine, too! Thanks, Amy. I'll stop by Home Depot.
