No an atomic bomb has not hit and you do not need to run to a fall out shelter.
It’s just that I have finished getting my Fall décor out and I thought I would share a little with you each day this week.
I am starting with my front porch. Recently my friend, Amanda called me from a yard sale where she had spied two of these urns. She knew that I had been looking for some. She picked them up for me at $3 each. I really am not a gold person so I wanted to give them a new look.
I spray painted them white and then rubbed them with dark Annie Sloan Wax. I was going for the old concrete look. Not sure if I achieved it, but like how they turned out.
I planted a Millet in the center. Then added two Mums, and cabbages that I dug up from my garden.
I placed them on each side of the porch. What do you think, do they look like old concrete?
By the front door I placed a vintage milk can with some of my leaf rake collection.
My black drop leaf table is dressed up with Fall Mums, a small garden obelisk wrapped in an Autumn garland, and one giant zucchini.
Ha, ha, found this baby buried under my plant. I’m sure that’s never happened to you!
Perfect spot for a crow.
My blue cabinet holds a few Fall treasures.
A primitive heart adorned with a sunflower hangs on the accent door in the corner of the porch. A metal lantern filled with pinecones sits below it. Notice that my white Delphinium is blooming for a 2nd show. I love my yellow metal chairs. They were old and rusty when I bought them. I had them sandblasted and powder coated.
A coffee filter wreath with a burlap bow and glitzy acorn hang upon the front door.
Hope you enjoyed day 1 of the Fall Out Tour. Sure hope that you come back for more. (I’m a poet and I didn’t know it, but my feet sure show it; their Longfellow's.) Like you’ve never heard that one before. Hee-hee!
I will be sharing with:
