A little Fall, y’all!


In a little “between” time before I Halloween stuff up, I am including apples on my mantel.

I found some canvas apples at a little store near my mom’s house, and I fell in love with them.


At a yard sale, I found a plastic apple.  Not crazy that it was gray, I decided to paint it.


I mixed up some Miss Mustard Seed milk paint in Tricycle, and added a little more water.  I liked a little bit of the gray showing through.


… A little green on the leaf, some taupe on the stem, et voila!

The apple makeover is lovely! That number bowl is so cool! (as are the canvas apples)

Apples really do say fall here too. I love the makeover! It looks sooo much better in that beautiful colour.

Can you tell I'm going through my emails??? I LOVE your redish apple with the gray showing through. And that number bowl!!! I want one! It's looking like fall over there!

Love your Fall Y'all (do you really say y'all? I say it like a hundred times a day at least) Mantle. I have been wanting to try some MMS milk paint but I am fearful of "losing control". I have heard that it chips and peels a lot...did that happen on your apple?
