Yes, it’s mid-September but here in Northern Maine, the fall weather hit us this weekend.
I picked up a bunch of mums to swap out my summer annuals, rearranged all of my outdoor vignettes and pulled out the Halloween tote.
Better. My doors need some attention – and I have something fabulous in mind – but I’ve promised T I’d finish some other projects before starting anything new.
Those poor milk jugs of mine needed some love. The stone paint had all washed off in the rain.
Fresh paint and a fresh look.
I’d put our old wine barrel in the middle of a flower bed this spring and it ended up being covered by the flowers (I was not expecting 7 foot tall flowers!). We moved it out to a more prominent position.
We didn’t have any luck with the pumpkins in our garden. I also haven’t found a new “go-to” pumpkin patch for cheap pumpkins. So for now, this will do.
We’re getting our Halloween decorations ready with some new homemade goodies. We’ll put them out in a few weeks but it doesn’t hurt to get ahead of the game in crafting! My favorite so far? This repurposed screen headed for the trash:
I found a witch image online to mentally guide myself with, but I freehanded this bad boy. I’m quite pleased with it. I have a second trashed screen waiting for a similar treatment.
Enjoy the change in the seasons.
