5 Days of Pumpkins: Checkered Gold Painted Pumpkin
Yesterday I showed you a really easy way to get a gold "dipped" pumpkin, and today I am taking it up a notch with a checkered diamond pattern! I just used the same spray paint and some white address labels to get this look. I think it complements the other gold pumpkin perfectly.
President Richard Nixon's dog, Checkers, is credited with saving his political career. In 1952, Nixon defended his candidacy for vice president when a story spread that he had a secret slush fund. In a nationally televised address, Nixon did admit to taking one "gift" - his dog. "The kids love the dog, and we're going to keep it!" an emotional Nixon said in an outburst known to the day as the Checkers speech.
