My version of a Jack 'o Lantern & a Window Surprise!

I painted a pumpkin yesterday for the front porch & thought I'd share him with you.  I also added some hydrangeas to the planter, since the plant has decided not to bloom anymore.  It had beautiful orange & yellow blossoms.  We'll see if the hydrangeas wilt or dry... 

I'm trying to dry hydrangeas using a technique I found on a blog.  If I like the way they turn out, I will share with a tutorial.  Here they are, the last of my blossoms, all drying on my dining room table...

Last, I will share my living room front window.  Our daughter works in a sign shop & creates vinyl sayings & art for walls, among other things.  She had made two of these & this was the discard.  My hubby suggested that she put it on our window & I was thrilled!  It is special because she made it & I haven't seen anything like it before.  It is sparkly pearl, but see through.  I feel it looks shabby chic.  What do you think?
Have a Wonderful Wednesday!!

The window is awesome!! I bet it looks wonderful with the light shining through it at night!
Hydrangeas are such a beautiful flower. I love every shade of them. I hope they turn out-so we can see the tutorial! ;)
