Blue Looks Good on You!

2011-09-25 Front Porch Fall

Hey Mr. Porch, I just bought an old  cupboard.

Didn’t know what to do,

but gotta say, “Blue Looks Good on You”!

 

A bit of blue with festive Fall,

Purple, orange, yellow and gold.

Makes a blue cupboard look good,

no matter how old!

 

You can hang out with my black

drop leaf table.

Black and blue are always in,

that is, except on the skin!

Mums the word we like to hear.

So hears hoping you enjoy my new old cupboard, dear!

I love these bumpy pumpkins!  Warty enough to make any witch a bit envious.

When it comes to coffee, I’ll take mine with filters only please. I like a little white and tan.

I want my door a color SO BAD!  Haven’t convinced Hubby yet.  “Too nice of  wood”.

A true blue friend, Amanda surprised me by sitting this darling pitcher on my countertop one morning.  What a delight to my eyes!  She found it at D.I. for $1.50.

Mother Nature is still allowing late bloomers to thrive.

In fact, look at this Sweet Potato Vine.  He’s all but coming in the front door.

Added a few more things after I took this pic.

Why I fell in love with this cupboard the first time I spied it at Star Mill Antiques.  Because of all of the many cubbies for displaying treasures.

I imagined it full of popcorn and candy jars in our future theater room.  But for now, the front porch will do.

The teapot I bought at the $1 store years ago.  I have a plate to match.  I just bought the two mini oil lamps at a yard sale for $3.

My stab at poetry is really quite comical, but hopefully it’s always good for a laugh or two.

Now that I have shown you my Fall décor inside and out.  It took about four posts, but I did it.  I hope It helped  put you in the mood for Fall.

Loved it!

Tried to comment twice previously. Have to anonymously. Please add my e-mail address to your address book. Maybe that will remedy it.

Oh Jann, your porch is just stunning! I love your new blue cupboard, and everything on it, and that old yellow chair just POPS next to your black table. You've definitely inspired me to really step up my Fall decorating this year!

Your home looks beautiful! The fall colors and decor look so pretty, and I like that sweet potato vine. I've wanted to try planting one at my high desert cottage. Seeing yours inspires me to try it.
