Happy weekend sweet readers. Before this month is completely a page off the calendar, I wanted you to come for a visit on the porch. There aren’t any bright orange pumpkins out there yet, but that doesn’t mean the room is lacking in color. Far from it!
If you were here earlier this month, you might remember seeing apples with all the school-y decorating inside the house. A few of them decided to try to escape to the porch. (I don’t blame them. It has been very nice out there today. )
You can see that yellow and red have invaded all the seating in the form of throw pillows. Please don’t call the quilt police on me. The solid yellow pillows on the swing and sofa were once part of a lovely boutis quilt. Major sin, I know, but they made wonderful pillows.
And since I am confessing my scissor sins, you should probably know that the patchwork quilts on the swing and sofa were also… one quilt. I cut it in half years ago to use on the boys’ beds in their bedroom. Hanging my head in shame.
I also made a throw pillow from part of that quilt. Yes, I really murdered it… big time.
And there’s more ….
I also murder…mums. The ones all over the house right now…the white ones… are still miraculously alive, but I can assure you, this is definitely not the norm. These on the porch are a week old, but they probably won’t make it much more than a week or two before I kill them.
I bought them for a special meal that I have been dying to show you.
(It’s kind of different!)
It will be in my next post, but I did want you to see the porch table in all its red and yellow September glory before I kill the mums.
So thank you for coming to visit on the porch today. If I were a more advanced seasonal decorator, there would have been pumpkins and orange and more fall things for you to see, but I am slooooow. Hopefully, those things will appear in October around here (probably late October.)
I am sure I will have murdered more mums by then.
Enjoy this first official weekend of fall …
and try not to kill any mums…
