Better in Blue

What's a girl to do when she wants one of the pretty blue-gray Cinderellas pumpkins but there's no fairy godmother in sight and the girl is still not driving because of the big old boot on her ankle?
Paint an old orange and green one of course.

Especially, if it already had a pretty realistic stem.

I added a few drops of blue craft paint to some white chalk paint to get the color.

One more thing is ready for the Fall in Love with Texas Blog Tour hosted by Let's Add Sprinkles.
Please stop by to visit my home on Wednesday, October 5th.

There is still time to link up to this week's Monday Social.  We'd love to see what you've been up to on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, or your blog! 

Wish me luck at the surgeon's on Thursday morning.  If my x-ray looks good, I'll be starting to walk and drive again.  After ten weeks, I almost can't believe it.

  1. Eilis,
    You had me at blue! I love your painted pumpkin so much more than its original color and cannot wait to see all your Fall decor at the Fall in Love With Texas Blog Hop. Here's hoping all goes well at the doctor's visit, and you are released to drive again. We need to plan your celebration lunch!


    1. Thanks, Judith. I will look forward to lunch soon!

  2. Eilis- Love this! Sharing on my Saturday Series on pumpkins. Where did you get the scale? Is it from Décor Steals? Love it too! laura

    1. Thank you, Laura! I bought the vintage scale on Etsy a while back.

  3. A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do! A great save Eilis! And it turned out so pretty!

  4. Eilis, your pumpkin looks pretty! What a great idea! I can't wait to see the tour. I hope that you have a wonderful afternoon!!!

  5. Eilis, your pumpkin looks great! Wishing you the best of all so you can get back to doing things. I know I was so excited to be able to drive again after breaking my knee. Yours sounds more drawn out though. Goodness! I am so looking forward to the tour!

  6. I'm sorry you still aren't driving. I haven't seen any pumpkins yet if it makes you feel any better. This is so cute.

  7. Eilis,
    Good for you, dear one!
    My High School motto was, "Where there's a will, there's a way!"
    Love your tranquil hued blue Cinderella Pumpkin!
    P.S. Visiting from Thoughts of Home on Thursday!

  8. Hi Eilis, love the blue you used for this pumpkin. Happy Fall. I linked to the Monday social today. I am so glad I found it.

  9. I actually found and bought a real blue pumpkin the other day. I took it home and my husband actually told me that he didn't know there were real blue pumpkins. He thought they were all just painted blue, like the ones I do...lol Yours turned out perfect! Visiting from TOHOT!

  10. Ellis, we loved this so much we are featuring it at Your Inspired Designs this week! Please stop by again and party with us!

  11. Hello Eilis,
    Love your pretty blue pumpkin! It's so much prettier than the other look. Yours reminds me of Cinderella. :-)
