Painted Pumpkins xoxo


You probably saw on Instagram this weekend that I went a little pumpkin crazy. I do love a little bit of DIY-ing every now and then when I have some time and I love this painted pumpkin craze that has hit this year,

I used spray paints (super easy to use) and a black acrylic paint (applied with a paint brush) to do mine which I just picked up in Vibes & Scribes in Cork City but I am sure that any local art and craft suppliers will do them too. I chose  gold, bronze, black and plum colours. Once I had gone to all the effort to paint the pumpkins, I decided why not have a little fun with them and used them as the centre piece for a halloween-inspired dinner.

I am always collecting beautiful tableware and decorative pieces that I can use for styling tables and I love anything that is crystal or cut-glass. TK Maxx always have really great glasses for reasonable prices. I also literally want EVERYTHING on the Kate Spade and Anthropologie websites.

I love these too:


By the way, I have landed in New York. I cannot believe I am here for the next two weeks!

Hopefully I should have lots of exciting details from the trip for you along the way so keep an eye on Instagram (lifeslusthaves) where I will be posting most of the photos on my #NessaDoesNYC trip,
