Before I share my pumpkin beauties, let's get to the results of the drawing for the painting by Liz Floyd.
WOW, so many of you took the time to enter the drawing - many, many thanks!!! Your support and kind words regarding Liz's work mean a lot to both of us. There were a total of 250 comments, but only 237 qualified. Some comments posted twice (in which case the second was stricken), and some were replies / follow-ups / clarifications. I printed out all the pages for review and numbered each comment. Because there was such a positive response, Liz and I decided to draw two names and give both paintings away.
The deadline to enter the giveaway was at 8:00 PM Eastern Time on 8/24/13.
Congratulations to Lori and NKBrown! I have your email addresses and will be in touch regarding shipping. A million thanks to Liz for the paintings. And, thank you all for participating. I plan to host more giveaways of original art, antiques, pillows, etc. Please stay tuned.
Now for a bit of fall decor at Tone on Tone. Enjoy!
An autumnal tone-on-tone vignette! Here we have a pair of 18th century Swedish windows, garden statues depicting the seasons, and two Lumina pumpkins on a French painted console. Under the console is a large basket perfect for keeping birch firewood.
In the antique English copper fish poacher is a group of warty gourds. Kinda ugly, kinda cool. I love their lumps and bumps! The vitrine cabinet is Swedish. The English Regency looking glass hangs above a French etagere.
Keeping it cool for autumn: blue pumpkins with lavender-bluish mums. I believe these are Australian Queensland Blue pumpkins.
