More Annie Sloan Painted Pumpkins-White and Sweet

Oh Pumpkin,. Oh Pumpkin,

You used to be bright.

You glowed like neon.

You shone like a light.

Now you have calmed down,

And I love the sight,

Now that you're painted,

A pretty off-white.
Yesterday, Yesterday,

You looked like this,
But I took the chalk paint,

and gave you a kiss.
Then, when you were dry,

Valspar touched your  face.

Oh!  How I love you-

You belong in this place.

The last rose of summer,

Graces this little vignette.

And I painted that gourd

while you were still wet.
Good day little pumpkins,

I am off to the races.

But I will return,
To see your sweet faces.
Here you were before

My lovely little gourd.
And here you are now-

On my cutting board.
Thanks for the visit,

Please stay a while,

I promise I'll try

To give you a smile.
Have a great day!!!!

I'll be around visiting late today.

I apologize for not getting around

to visiting many of you in the last

couple of days. 

There is lots going on here and I will

share more about that tomorrow.
