Pieces of Autumn 2012 ~ Front Porch
The last few days here in Ohio have been pretty perfect. Clear blue sky. Cool in the morning…warms up in the afternoon…then cool again at night.
Like I said. Perfect.
Seems anymore I welcome a new season in stages. I did the front door and a bit inside. The nice weather called me outside again to finish the front porch sitting area.
I moved my linen shade out here from the living room. Quite a few people have asked me if the lamp shades on my porch get dirty or dusty. Honestly…they really don’t. The porch is protected and I have never had anything break or tip over. Even in July when we had that terrible storm with 90 mph winds this porch came out unscathed. I can’t say the same for my poor yard though.
I couldn’t begin a new season with out new pillows. These are made from fabric that’s part of my Fall collection in my Etsy shop. Brown checked homespum backed with a soft brown tweed.
The flax linen that I used for the be grateful pillow and we gather together pillow is a good match to the lampshade.
I picked up some mini pumpkins and stuck a few in my lantern. Even behind the railing they show up great from the street.
Couldn’t resist adding some ribbon to the lantern! The candy corn matches the mums on the steps…they have faded just a bit but are still a lovely color.
I have thrown around the idea of painting my wicker. I just don’t know what other color would be neutral enough to go with anything and everything. I do tend to mix it up quite a bit out here.
I should probably stick with the white. Any suggestions?
