Share Your Creations Party #2

Welcome to the second Share Your Creations Party!



Share Your Creations



The first party had some wonderful entries, here are just a few...



Crocheted cuties by Sheila at Notesongs Adorable!!





Beautiful fall decor by Debbie at Debbiedoos



Adorable pumpkin hat by Denise at Den's Daily Life...it's for sale!





Beautiful painted chest by Kim at My Domestic Bliss
Love the color!
Refurbished chairs by Claire at Bless My Nest
What a transformation!




Now on to the party...



Today I wanted to share a few pics of my fall mantle. It is not complete yet...remember I am going to attempt to do an oil painting for the middle of the mantle. What have I gotten myself into?! lol...My easel is set up and ready to go! I'm hoping to get started today.







What I had envisioned for the mantle was not anything like how it is turning out! Doesn't it usually turn out that way? I was thinking about something more simple...However, I am pleased with it so far. I used several different pumpkins, greenery, berries, and books to give height. I arranged the pumpkins on the mantle and started laying the greenery, berries, mini pine cone sticks, etc. all around the pumpkins. Nothing is glued in it is all just wedged in! No taking this down to dust! lol...
I know I talk about Hobby Lobby (my second home) all the time, but they really have some beautiful pumpkins and they are all 40% off this week! Yay!
My grandma gave me this pumpkin and it looks so good with the green vases and books.

I bought three different sizes of the pumpkin in the middle of the mantle. They are really pretty too.
This pumpkin really jumped out at me. It is so elegant and different!



Now I have got to decide what to put in these vases...




Well, that's all I'm going to show you for now! Hopefully I will get everything else done in the next few days and then I will reveal the rest!


Now it's time to share your creations...You can share an item you have made, a room you have decorated, furniture you have painted, jewelry, a seasonal vignette, recipes, photography...the list goes on and on! Also, if you have an Etsy shop you are welcome to add your link. I would appreciate a link back to my blog so others can find the party.

I hope you will join the party!
