Hi Friends! Happy 1st day of Fall to you! I can feel the cooler weather coming...it starts in the mornings. As I am typing up this post, I have just let the dog outside for his morning romp around the yard and I can feel the crispness in air and hear the local high school band rehearsing their fight songs on the football field. Although, with Texas weather, you never know how long it will take before we actually have fall-like weather for any extended time. In anticipation of it though, I went ahead and put together a Pumpkin and Plaid Wreath.
Truth be told, I haven't actually put it on the front door. You see, I have not yet spruced up the front porch after the blazing summer sun fried the flowers in my planters. The pots are just beckoning for some new life...perhaps some fall mums like in years past.
I pulled out the "fall box" weeks ago when I put away the suitcases from our trip to Arizona. It was cram-packed with tired-looking fall fillers. I had to dig through to find leaves that went together. I should probably do some purging before I switch out to winter decor. Anyway, I had found this sweet wooden pumpkin at Michael's awhile back and knew that it would be the focal point of the wreath, along with some faux berries and fall leaves fillers.
Topping it off with the plaid ribbon, this year's fall wreath can be checked off the to-do list. I need to get with the program to get it up on the front door, but then I would need to fill the flower pots...and get a new door mat...and stain the door... Whew! I need to get busy!
Have you gotten your fall decor out yet? I hope you'll share it with us in the coming weeks at my Creative Ways Link Party. It goes live on Wednesdays at 8pm central. (shameless link party plug)
