Dotted Gold Pumpkin

White dotted gold pumpkin

Fall is starting to show itself even in my always sunny home in Hawai'i. The crisper morning air is a welcome sign of the fast-coming end to 2013. To join in on welcoming Autumn's return, my 3-year-old partner and I teamed up to decorate a $1 mini pumpkin for her white and gold-legged book bench. And timely for the season, Katja of Shift Ctrl Art's word for October was:
Fall is the word of the month for October 2013
Inspired by the adorable white pumpkins with gold dots at Lilikoi Joy, I spray painted our mini pumpkin gold, lightly brushed the stem with white paint, and helped my daughter dip the end of the paintbrush into the paint to randomly dot our gold mini.

Alas, this pumpkin will not stay forever, as Frost has said: "Nothing gold can stay." Gold pumpkin with white dots
Still, for the time it is here, we welcome the autumnal air.
