Blackbird singin' in the dead of night

Pumpkin and Boo like having birds inside too
Autumn is upon us and I couldn't be happier.  Yeah, so I'm still wearing flip flops and it's still hitting temperatures in the 90s, but most mornings are beautifully overcast and sometimes... I ALMOST need a sweater.  I'm officially calling it:  AUTUMNTIME!  So to celebrate I started two autumn projects today and finished one.  Here is the finished project.  I found a great branch down the road and after creeping it up with some black spray paint it was ready to be hung on the wall and adorned with my dollor store, black-feathered friends.  It couldn't have been easier, or cheaper. 

The other project I started was a papier mache pumpkin.  I've been wanting to do one of these for a long time and it's coming along great.  It's quite messy, but it's so easy I think I want a whole patch.  This one I'm doing is pretty large (about beachball size) and I'm still debating if I want to turn it into a jack or keep it whole so I can leave it out all through Thanksgiving.  I can't wait to see how it turns out.
