I don't want to ruin anyone else's fun, but I also just don't have the Halloween mojo anymore. Seemingly every blog post in my reader is a recipe for "Death Punch" or "How to make your own skeleton decor". Not fun reading for me right now so I'm on a temporary blog-reading hiatus.

Instead of Halloween-ing it up, I've been working on some more painting projects with my Annie Sloan paint. I'm not finished any of them yet, but soon! This weekend I'm attending an Annie Sloan paint workshop at Kathie Jordan Design in New Hamburg, Ontario. Guessing I'll learn that everything I've been doing so far is wrong but that's OK ;). I'm pretty excited about it!
I can't wait to finish this china cabinet and I want to pick up a few more colours and maybe some dark wax too:
This isn't a true before/after shot because I'm not finished. I'm just posting it to prove I don't sit around all day in my PJ's drinking coffee. I do, however, hang around in my painting clothes drinking coffee. Like right now ;)
Aside from painting, this fall we've enjoyed a few of these:

and a few of these, too:
It was also our 15th wedding anniversary a few weeks ago so my hubby and I took some time away in Toronto last weekend....shopped, ate out at a real restaurant without crayons at the table, and had fun.
Hope you've had a happy, safe and dry October and for those who haven't, I hope your November is much better :)
