October is ending and Thanksgiving is around the corner, how did that happen?
I want to share our front porch with you for 2019.
I love mums but for me mums never make it long enough and will be gone before Thanksgiving, So, for our home, I mostly choose to use flowering Kale. It’s hardy and looks pretty for Thanksgiving.
Last Christmas I finally purchased this basket for our front door from Ballard. Why oh why did I wait so long? This basket is gorgeous and is a staple for our front door for all seasons. Look at the purple of the Kale popping against the black door.
This vintage tub is a thrifted find and love it filled with more kale. Since this picture was taken they have been opening more and more and sure are putting on a show of beauty with their white and purple centers. You will notice below in an evening shot a change.
You may notice the small white pumpkins are missing from the daytime pictures. We have a chipmunk who visits often and decided the pumpkins were his so what to do?
I made this pumpkin sign and I love it. I feel it adds so much charm to the porch. Why I didn’t make this right away I have no idea. So thank you Mr. Chippy for forcing me to come up with a solution.
John grabbed a piece of wood he had in his stash and I white washed it and left it heavier in some areas to give it a more natural look. I used several different stencils for the wording and instant charm is added. I think you may see a sign on our Christmas porch this year too.
The glow of the lanterns on the porch add a warm cozy feel with their shimmering light. I never have purchased a bumpy pumpkin before. I must say I enjoyed the texture this year.
One last full look., okay two.
Cooking and baking is on the schedule for this week to get ready for a family gathering happening soon. I will be sharing some photos of the food plus my table for the fun. Stay tuned!
