I have got to back into the swing of things with blogdom……..I should have taken a picture of the before (or at least of the before on the door – summer basket). The basket was filled with hydrangeas, red mums and white daisies. Below you will see the spring arrangement. Actually it is a little worse for wear. It has been hanging up in the garage all summer and I found some daffodils at a yard sale and just stuck them in the pot. (all for safe keeping, I assure you!)
This is the first “fall” decorations that I have put up. I looked at my boxes in the garage the other day and thought, it is 100 degrees---if I put them up now—all over the house I will be sick of them by November. But, I got up this morning and it felt like fall-cooler, crispish and it was just time to change the door decor. I had some sunflowers from last year and I decided it would be nice to add a little leaves and some red sunflowers. So, off I went to the Dollar Tree. I stuck some berry things that were stuck in the bag with the sunflowers and the blue spiky flowers from the spring arrangement. I like the results except for the bucket. . . . . . . .
Charlie was helping!
The door bucket was purchased about 3 years ago when we had Mr. R’s house on the market. I love it. But, now that I am using it for my fall arrangement for the front door I am thinking it might need a little paint. What is the name of the bronze that everyone uses in their projects? I am going to have to look at it a couple of days and think about it. I love it this shade of green for spring. Plus, I will probably put this arrangement on the back door in a couple of weeks and put a wreath on the door.
I love the shade and shadows on the house in the mornings—dappled little blobs of delicious sunshine peaking through onto the walls. I know it is not a very good picture of the final results—but bear with me. Mr. R is thinking about painting the house Williamsburg blue. I want the doors to be black. I love black front doors. I also want to change the storm door as a full view with glass panels—a true Williamsburg look. What do you all think?
And speaking of great fall decorations. . . . . . .
If any of you have a Walgreen’s nearby stop in and take a look at a glorious wire pumpkin-it is fantastic and only $19.00. I have not bought one yet as that was going to be my gift to myself when I sold a painting.
Have a good day and I will
See you in a few,
PS---I am going to paint it---I know after looking at the pictures while I was writing this post that the wall basket needs to be a darker color.
