What We Accomplished Wednesday #64

Want to be a pin-up girl? Join the party, and if you are featured, I'll pin your project to my Green Willow Pond Features Board!

It's been a cold and rainy fall here so far, but inside is cozy and warm. I brought out my fall decorations and started warming the place up this week. I'll be sharing more in the next couple of weeks. New this year is my drop cloth pumpkin that I fell in love with. I posted about it with a tutorial here.

As I stated in that post, my sweet friend, Debbie, from Lakehouse, gifted me with the crystals draped under my drop cloth pumpkin. Well, that was not all. The crystals were wrapped around the gift bag handle. Inside the bag were three beautiful treasures!

First is this gorgeous clock she had left from her shop that she closed. I had wanted to purchase one for my bedside, but that one had already been sold. I forgot about it, and was giddy when I found this one in my little bag of goodies! Now I just need to find a pretty little stand to put it on, but for now it is living on my kitchen bookshelves.

Debbie also made me this sweet little sachet that smells heavenly. I tucked it into one of these little french pots that I bought at TJ Maxx while we were shopping together in Gaylord. The egg is one I blew out from my very own chickens.

Isn't it pretty!

And finally, there was this pretty little doily tucked in. For now my silver compote (also bought at a thrift store on that same trip) rests on it, but I may sew it to a pillow later.

If you haven't visited Debbie at Lakehouse, you are missing out on a real treat. Not only is her lakeside cottage gorgeous, but she is a sweet soul.Tell her I sent you :)

There were so many wonderful links at our last party! Take a peek at the top ten here, then read on for the details!
First up we have this gorgeous kitchen remodel by Magali, from The Little White House. We've seen snippets of the remodel. Now here is the grand reveal!

Patti, from Old Things New, shared her beautiful velvet pumpkins. I refered to her tutorial, with a couple tweaks of my own to make my drop cloth ones. Aren't her's gorgeous?

Isn't this dresser amazing? Daena, at Bad Rabbit Vintage, shared how she refinished it and that her hubby may be laying claim to it! I'm hoping he does because it is stunning!

Martinel, from Martinel Art, created this lovely wedding book. I love the raised relief and pretty little framed rose in the middle!

I have a weak spot for industrial style shelves and these made me go a little weak at the knees. Kyla, from House of Hipsters, had the vision, and her hubby built it. Isn't it so cool?

Michelle, from the Painted Hinge, shared her cute fall "wreath," fashioned from a picture frame. Love the little chalkboard signs she can change out with the seasons.

Aren't these white pumpkins adorable? Lisa, from Mrs. Blackstone, found these wood pumpkins at a thrift store and painted them herself.

I've seen glass pumpkins, wood and fabric pumpkins, grapevine, and even REAL pumpkins, but I've never seen a metal one. Well this one isn't really metal, but it is faux painted to look like it...and I love it! Cassie, from Little Red Window shares how she created the look.

Check out this sweet lace and burlap garland made by the equally sweet Kristi, from Making it in the Mountains.

And for my insatiable sweet tooth, I am drooling over these Almond Joy Squares! Find the recipe shared by Kimberly at Lou Lou Girls.
