Autumn brunch

I had my first fall gathering of the year today. A group of friends that I used to work with at the nature center get together several times a year. Each of us hosts and I, naturally, always do the fall gathering. I always do a potluck, since everyone brings the most amazing food! I got my table all dressed up with fun black and white decor. Don't you love these bat candles!?! Here you can see that my scrap supplies in the dresser really are right in the middle of my dining room:) After we ate and chatted each of us did an altered paint can. Here the ladies are all hard at work!
Each person did such a unique can. I love them all!!!!

Everybody probably already knows the answer to this but me...but where can you buy clean, empty paint cans? Those look so great! And I think they would make great trick or treat buckets for my kids.

I bet you all have a lot of fun! And I'm guessing that you do your scrapbooking projects on that table? That lovely dresser must be so handy :)
