WHAT'S BLACK AND WHITE AND ORANGE ALL OVER??

Hello my blogging friends.  It has been such a busy and somewhat trying week here that I missed posting for White Wednesday as well as Thriftday.........oh well, I know you all understand that we do what we can!!!  I have missed visiting all my favorite blogs this week, as well, so look forward to some catch up time.
Here is a look at some blacks, whites and oranges that I did a bit of decorating with this afternoon.

I made a little wreath out of some Chinese Lanterns I have growing in my backyard.  I simply strung some of the sweet orange lanterns on a piece of wire and then fashioned it into a circle.

I love white pumpkins and make my own by spray painting orange ones with white spray paint.
I made a stencil out of a paper doily and painted around the top of this one.

These round silver coasters were in a bag of silverplated cutlery I bought at the thrift store.
At first I was just planning to get rid of them as it was really the cutlery I wanted......then it came to me...... they would be perfect to create a fun little swag with.

Hope you all have enjoyed these black, white and orange images.  I thank you all once again from the bottom of my heart for all your encouraging words.

Janis, I love all the black and white and orange pieces. Your B-O-O swag is really cool, glad you kept the coasters and found a use.
I really like the black & white look and you've really made work well (and beautifully) for Halloween.

Hi Janis,
I sure have missed being able to check out everyone's blogs here in the far north.-)
I will be back home soon.
I just wanted to ask you where do you find the letters like on the coasters. I have a few of those at home that need to be used. Thanks again for such beautiful inspiration.

Hi, Janis,
I am always delighted to see what creative project you will tackle next. Using the coasters to make the "boo" banner was such a terrific idea! I also liked how you did your white pumpkins with the doily pattern in black. Thank you so much for stopping by Bunny Cottage for a visit! Hope your weekend is a good one. Vicki

Adorable Boo garland...what a great recycling idea!

Rustydiva said...

HUGE AHA moments here ~ NEVER thought about spraying my orange pumpkins white! I just got sad when the white ones were too expensive. Also, I see these little coasters all the time at the thrift store and again NEVER thought about making a garland with them! Awesome ideas that I must immediately copy!!!!

Love the pop of orange!
