Help, I'm Drowning.......

in orange. I was really gung-ho for Fall decorating and couldn't stop with the Fall colors all of September. Now that it's October, I just can't take the orange all over my house anymore! I don't know what happened, it was such a welcome change from Summer decor, I thought..........

I miss my neutral decor. So, I redoing my Fall decorations in neutral and white! I'm taking out my white paint and tweaking everything in the living room. I am keeping the Fall colors in my kitchen for now, they don't seem to bug me in there. I know, I'm weird.

I found this cute little guy at a flea market for 3 dollars. I decided that he needed a make-over. One thing that you might not know about me is that I love birds! However, I also own four cats, so I have to live vicariously through books and statuary.
These are just my cheap-o dollar store pumpkins, no tutorial needed here, I just painted them white. I also covered up the yellow color on the stem with white paint and carefully left the green showing.
Here we go, much more calming.

I was a little concerned about ruining the owl, but I really like him better now.

Even "Old Rusty", my fireplace, looks happier!
I added a bow tie to the owl. What do you think, with or without?
