I have started a little bit of Fall decorating. The old blackboard that hangs on the kitchen panty door gets a new saying every month or so, so I updated that. I also reminded myself that the next two months are, in my opinion, the best time to visit the beach, ...... hint, hint Bobby G.....maybe a long weekend soon! :)
Brought out the shed antlers and put those on top of the music covered books. I hope to have some antlers at the show for customers to buy. I love them in winter decorating.
I just got this large antique landscape painting and switched it out with the floral painting on the foyer table for the season. I love the old brooding oil paint colors. The mercury glass pumpkin my sister in law gifted me over Labor Day. Isn't it gorgeous?
Late yesterday evening I picked these hydrangeas and plopped them in an old stoneware pitcher. I love the color the formally blue flowers have turned to for the season.....don't you? Perfect for fall. The pinkish purple stalk flowers are some of my yard-sale plants I found last year. (posted about here) They don't bloom until September and are so hardy and prolific. They work really well with the green hydrangeas.
And that's all I have done so far. The pink and white impatiens on the front porch are still so beautiful that I can't bear to tear them out, so I will wait a little while before I do the autumnal front porch. Early tomorrow morning I will be yard saleing. Two local churches are having sales and I love church sales. And there are a couple of Open Houses at some of my favorite shops, so I hope to get to those too. Then I will head down to visit Mom. The rest of the weekend will be cleaning up and closing the pool and some more yard work. Hope your weekend is fun and good! xoxo
