Subtle Shades of White

I have a passion for white pumpkins! They're not a true white however. That's what I like so much about them. They have a soft, just barely off ~ whiteness about them. Instead of being...
 they are
While browsing the aisles of my local K~Mart store the other day, I happened upon these precious pumpkins in my favorite shade of Non~Orange! {Tee Hee!}
Low and behold, they were on sale.
Only $5.00.
Being hard pressed to do an overabundance of Fall decorating, due to the fact my house is rather ROSY on the whole,  and does not lend itself well to Autumnal colors, I couldn't pass these little beauties by.
So I snapped them up
 then I headed for the spray paint section, the REAL reason I was there, and found a can of
Heirloom White.
I wanted to spray paint all of these baskets I have purchased at the local thrift store.
I love this shade of white paint.
It's not ivory, or cream, or antique, exactly.....
It's "heirloom".
 I will fill all of these baskets with yarn of various colors and fibers.
Then they will find a new home in my soon to be  
I am turning an upstairs bedroom that one of my newly married daughters has left vacant into my very own
I will finally have my own Office / Studio.
Once I get started I will show the work in progress.
The walls are a  FRESH GREEN already.
 There will be lots of creamy, white goodness all about.
And of course, my beloved PINK ROSY~ness will have to be sprinkled in here and there.
I will keep you posted.
Hope you are all having a Beautiful Sunday

      I had to think of you & your lovely room that you just re~did. It will take a bit of work and time. But I need a project anyway. I work slowly these days, but my Mom is here to help. I am very excited!!! :)))
