LOOKIE AT WHAT I MADE!!!!!!!

Hello there;  I hope every one out there in blog world are having a wonderful day. Here it is so beautiful out, very sunny breeze and not to hot out mid 70's. We are have a freeze warning tonight though, hope all my plants do well, I am going to have to find something to cover them up with.........    So yesterday I was reading some posts and on one,   which I am so sorry to say I don't remember which one because I have read so many, any way she had made a pumpkin out of a light bulb. It was so cute looking, I said to me, hey you can do that so I did.  he he he...  Oh and he turned out pretty good if I do say so myself.

I used old glass candle holders to hold the pumpkin in, I also used some raffia and moss, now the top of the candle was to big for the bulb, so I cut a roll of paper towel tubing and glued it in side the holder and hot glued the bulb to the top of it, And it worked out real great. I stuffed the raffia and moss in and around the candle to hide the tube. After I painted it and the funny not scary faces I made a bow with raffia and put a silk leaf with it. Now the mouth was not very good looking  just plain black, so I put in some tiny white teeth, and it looked much better. So what do you all think????  Did I do good????????  huh???????   Well??????

PLEASE SAY YES;;;;;; lol  kidding.   smiling... :}

This is the one I am going to give to my first born daughter Heather, hope she likes him. He so wants to find a good home. I gave him a name, his name is.  Oscar Pits Pumpkin...  How cute is that for a name.......

Now this handsome one is for my second daughter Chas. She said she loves him, she stopped by this afternoon and I surprised her with him.  I also gave him a name also, and his name is... 

George Pie Pumpkin.   He is very excited to be going to a great home with very pretty girls.  I kind of messed up his mouth a bit, he just would not hold still for me. I think he was getting a little nervous about meeting his new room mate. But I think it just adds to his charm, don't you think.......

And one last family photo before they split to their new homes. I had such a fun time do this. I am thinking of make some more, at least one of me. I did not make me one, ha ha how about that..

I have a very large bulb I am going to use this time, just don't tell my hubby, it is a new one, geeee  hope we won't need it....... 

I am going to set him in a small grapevine wreath with some fall leafs vine. What do you think of that idea, if any one has any other ideas of how to use him please let me know, I love to receive ideas for others. It so helps out sometimes I run dry and out of ideas. And a fresh point of view is so welcome to me. That is why I love to blog and read and visit others. I glean so many fresh and interesting ideas and learn so much from each of you. I love how everyone loves to help and share ideas and then actually tells how they did it, instead of worrying about some one else making the same thing.  So from the bottom of my little ol" Heart I thank you all for sharing your ideas and thoughts and advise and support.  Boy am I getting mushy or what......  

I am sitting an watching a movie now, National Treasure 2 I love that movie and the first one too. OH and Fools Gold, I would love to go on a treasure hunt, how fun would that be.......   All that history just waiting to be found.  So I am off to watch that and to visit as many of you as I can.  I did some mowing today and cleaning so I am going to rest a bit before dinner. I think I am allowed don't you think??????   You gals are the best ever....  kisses to all....  Oh tomorrow I am going to start painting on a chair that I have to set outside and decorate, I will show photos of my progress. Hope it turns out ok.....   As always I wish to thank each of you that left comments you are all so very sweet and kind, even the ones that did not  you are all my best friends in the whole wide world........   lol;  Because I can't even imagine that any one would want to read what I have to say and think it is worth wile. So thank you  all so much for that. God Bless;

Hugs;

Cute idea! I don't know about using the larger bulb, though. Might it break? Anyway, have fun and take pictures.

How adorable! Great job! That's a great way to use old light bulbs. I might have to try some myself. What type of paint did you use?

Hugs!
