It just wouldn't be October on the Mantel without my little Snow Owls. A few years ago white owls were the latest addition to the Fall Scene, and that reminded me of what a fad owls were in the early 70's. All the poor homely little ceramic owls that had been packed away or sold at garage sales started to make a comeback on the shelves of flea markets and antique malls. They were still homely, but I had a plan...
I wanted to turn them into something elegant, magical, and a little haunting,
so I let my paint brush work like a wand and threw in a little glitter...
Here's how they started out...
a little "family" of 70's dated decor.
Then several coats of white ASCP
This little guy was my muse and inspiration.
This pic from a few years ago gives some detail
as to how I did the highlighting with paint and glitter.
So here they are again this year,
after being packed away last year.
I gathered some real and faux pumpkins on the hearth,
along with my Boxwood Topiaries with new brown plaid ribbon.
oh, and be sure to add some Bittersweet!
I'm working on the front porch,
and I have more fun decor to share inside.
