It is the tenth of the month and that means it's time for me to join my friends on Ten on the Tenth for another project. This time we have gotten together to share fall ideas. I chose to use the humble pumpkin, and build three vignettes around that idea. So without much fanfare, I am going to show you how to style a bookcase for fall three different ways.
You may recall that last time we shared posts on acts of kindness and I shared the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden. Make sure to scroll all the way down so you can see what my friends are up to this month.
The humble pumpkin in question was actually made of Styrofoam and very cheap. But it would just not do in this state so I gave it a quick makeover with paint - my solution for everything these days.

The first vignette: a touch of brown
The second vignette: moody glass
Instead of removing the labels on all of the bottles I chose to keep some of them and paint them over with chalkboard paint.
The third vignette: bright and blue
This little frame was a special gift from my dear friend Michelle of A Crafty Mix. She made a miniature painting of the Paranoid Pumpkin Man and sent it to me all the way from South Africa.
Michelle painted him in front of a stone building which is characteristic of the buildings in Greece. Needless to say it made the journey with me to the States.
