Fall is definitely in the air. The nights are getting cooler and the daytime temps are just in the 90's. (You must remember all of the 110+ temperatures we had all summer. 90 is good for us!)
It doesn't look like we will have many pretty colored leaves this Fall. John says it's because it's been so dry and we've been under drought conditions all summer. The tree leaves have been mostly brown and burned up here all July and August.
But, thank goodness for artificial flowers and leaves.
This old birdhouse planter has weathered many winters. I bought it at a craft show many years ago but still enjoy it.
I tucked some artificial pumpkins in my flower bed with a couple of small pots of REAL mums.
The darling bench was a gift from one of my clients whose home I helped with. On Christmas Eve, she and her husband came carrying this in. I was so surprised. She said she remembered that I loved it when we were out shopping and wanted to get it for me.
So, it sits out on my covered front porch and I decorate it for the seasons.
See that large white cast iron grate thing? It is sitting beside the birdhouse planter. I got it at an Estate Sale and don't know what to do with it. Any suggestions? It's about four foot long and heavy, heavy, heavy. I keep thinking I will have a sudden inspiration - but not yet.
I have been so blessed to have so many clients that I have worked with during my Interior Design days. These people have all become dear friends - not just clients. We all celebrate good times and not so good times. I am blessed that the Lord put so many kind people in my path in that field.
After you work months and months with someone in their home - whether it's old or new - you do become part of their family. So, I am really thankful to have this extended family. So many of them were so dear to me when we were going thru all that we did with Landen and they will be precious to me forever.
Till next time, Judy
