pumpkin party


last week a few of us got together for a yummy fall meal
and some pumpkin decorating & carving
for mine i used some great martha stewart paint colors:
black beetle, cloud, yellow gold, and gold & silver liquid gilding
a few furniture tacks
plus a little sponge painting 
unique pumpkins that will last until well after halloween.
check them out, plus a few more snaps from the evening
