Fall is definitely upon us!  It is October now but it definitely doesn’t feel like Fall in Oklahoma!  It is still in the high 80’s.  Decorating for Fall will help that mood for sure though!  Let’s talk about how easy it is to add Halloween decoration to a traditional pumpkin that is orange.  Maybe you are in the mood for a change, I know I am!  I love to check out what the Dollar Tree has on hand when I am in the crafting mood.  I picked up several items on my recent trip.  You can get so much there right?!  One of them was this cute little orange pumpkin that got a makeover turned white!
