Crafty Christmas

Spray paint is my new best friend. (Hmmm, maybe that's why I keep forgetting stuff?! )  I got real crafty with my porch decor.  These painted pumpkins have elicited the most conversation.

 Here I tried to do a pattern but realized spray paint was too runny.  Need to get some acrylic next time.

 I found this door hanger idea on Pinterest.  Turns out it came from a really cool blog, called A Diamond in the Stuff.  She has amazing projects.  Following her directive, I recycled a frame with some spray paint, added some Christmas balls from the attic, and new ribbon from Michaels (50% off!).

Inside, another Pinterest inspiration.  Spray painted two old plant containers and also painted dollar store ornaments, added two fresh Rosemary trees and garland.  It was really hard to photograph a window. When the dust settles on the holidays I plan to learn some mad skills. PS: My kitchen sink area NEVER looks like this!
