Fall Fun

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.

I adore it all... you home is gorgeous! I just got my mums... (and then we had our first frost).. ;-(

But, I'm excited to tackle the front stoop.

I need to find myself an old milk barrel. I LOVE how it looks on your porch!
