October MAGAZINE COPY CAT CHALLENGE....





TIME for that fun PARTY over at  DEBBIE DOO''S...
You know the one, right ?
MAGAZINE COPY CAT CHALLENGE  

This is ONE of my favorite monthly memes...sooo fun.

When I got my newest POTTERY BARN catalog...
THIS beauty is one of the first things I saw.
I knew INSTANTLY that SHE would be my inspiration for OCTOBER COPY CAT CHALLENGE ♥♥


$139.00 from POTTERY BARN...
$6.00 from GARAGE SALE..
 HOW fun this was to do...
I hope YOU will try doing some COPYCATTING....
 


Oh, and COUNTRY LIVING has some great ideas for decorating pumpkins.....

Mr. Sweet's eyes did that ROLLING THING when I showed these to him...

HE SAID..."....when I was a kid....my mama only bought pumpkins to make pies...."

SHE SAID... "....wellllll....I am buying PUMPKINS 
to make PRETTY...."

Oh, BJ! You did a great job, and I like yours better. Their bust looks a little stuffy and stiff, yours looks romantic and nice. Maybe a big price tag makes one stuffy!

Wonderful work you do, Miss Copy Cat. I'm tempted to agree with your hubby. I've been up to my elbows in faux pumpkins this evening while trying to watch Once Upon a Time and I quit. I'm heading for the farmstand in the a.m. looking for the real deal.

Grace @ Sense and Simplicity said...

Love the copy-cat idea you used. What a pretty way to display necklaces.

Toile papered pumpkins! Cool! :-)

Oh BJ - I inherited 3 busts from my parents when they passed. I love one of them ... but was looking for something to do with the other 2. This is the perfect idea for at least one of them!!
