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!

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

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?
