Mercy folks, when you love to decorate like I do the tweaking never ends!
Especially when you have a new (old) piece to work with.
My daughter, Nichole bought this cabinet from a friend months ago. After sitting in her garage for all that time she called the other day and said, “Mom, do you want that cabinet? I really have no where to use it.”
Well, let’s just say, she didn’t have to ask twice.
Many of you know that I had already decorated my porch for Fall.
Well, let’s do a little tweaking. I love how nicely it fits on my table. Isn’t it a great color?
Just adding the cabinet was not enough. Because it’s cooled down a bit I thought it was time for pumpkins.
Don’t you love the textural interest they give throughout the yard?
A sunflower head and pumpkin seem happy tucked in among pots by the garage.
Mums got moved to new places. Adding Outdoor Furniture to your porch says, come sit and visit for a while. Oh wait, I have to move the mum. lol! Don’t ask me what’s up with that mum on the chair. It’s been full of buds since I bought it but just doesn’t want to put on a show.
I kept the rakes ready at hand for any leaves that might fall. That’s a bit of a joke because none of our trees are very big.
Now for my newest porch addition. I was going to wait to hang her with the Halloween décor, but mama was just too anxious!
Look at my new chandy.
She’ll be perfect for Halloween! I added a glitzy crow dangling from the end.
I had been wanting one to put out on my porch after visiting a local shop. She had one just lying on top of an outdoor cupboard.
My sister and I were in Brigham City and we stopped at an antique store. When I wandered into the back room I spied her. My heart literally skipped a beat. Afraid of what he might say, I asked; “How much for the black chandelier?” He walked back and said, “Oh, I’ll let you have it for $25. A big fat, S.O.L.D. When he got it down it was marked $55. Felt pretty darn good about that!
She was filthy, but after giving her a good scrub and getting her hung I love her! The only that could make her any better is if she really lit up.
A few flowers still remain giving a bit of Fall color.
How about you, been doing any tweaking lately?
I will be joining:
