What I Have Been Doing

I finally decided what to do with the cutting board that I refinished and wanted to share a pic with you.

I decided to use the bowl to display seasonal items on my dining room table. And in the Aug/Sept. issue of Prim Sister Gazette there was an awesome tutorial from Kim DeWalt of Cabin Creek Primitives on how to make pumpkins and they are soooo easy! And Lucy has a great idea on coloring leaves and making a scarecrow wreath. If you haven't read their gazette, you should take the time to read it. They always have such good articles in them.
So I colored me some leaves and lined my bowl with them. Then I made two pumpkins, one orange and one white and placed them in the bowl with fixins around them. Then I added a scarecrow ornie that I got in a swap last year in front of the pumpkins. I also made a fly cover from Char's blog and placed a cinammon roll candle wrapped in grundgy gauze under it on the corner of the board. I just love the way this turned out. See what you think. Now I'm trying to decide what to put in it for Christmas. Hmm.
What have you been up to? Until next time...

Love it! Your pumpkins turned out great and it all went together so well. I love the fly screen over the candle too.
