I just love this time of year. We're anticipating some beautiful weather this weekend and hoping to spend a lot of it outdoors with the kids.
Speaking of which... we were outside in our backyard on Monday, when our little guy fell backwards on the swing set ladder, fracturing his proximal humerus. Since then, it's been quite a chore keeping him safe. It hasn't slowed him down much. We're still in disbelief that it happened. We saw an orthopaedic specialist today and she decided not to cast it, due to the fracture being high on his arm, so he's wearing a velcro sling for the next 4 weeks. Please pray for a quick recovery for our Tyler-bug! :)
Due to the craziness going on around here, I'm a little late in posting my Fall door decor, I usually try to get it out mid September! I've decorated our door with my favorite Southern Living door bucket for the past few years. I never tire of it, it's such a classic look. Here are some pictures over the years of our front door with its rich sunflowers, mums, hydrangeas and gourds.
I love how my stacked pumpkins turned out! I purchased three different sized "fun"kins at Michael's (2 of each size) and used Americana acrylic paint in Burnt Orange, adding in some metallic glaze to give it some shimmer. The pumpkins are held together with pvc pipe, cutting a hole in the center (top and bottom) of the middle and bottom pumpkins. The top pumpkin is cut out at the bottom, leaving you with a stem at the top! Just slide your (measured to length) pvc pipe through the holes, leaving plenty of length to stick it down into your mulched flower pot. Lastly, I took some colorful leaf garland and wrapped it around each topiary. So cute!
I love the selection of flowers that Hobby Lobby carries, it's always fun picking out colors and putting it together. I got these for 50% off... under $20 for everything.
I have yet to pick-up my mums and pumpkins for the front porch. I'm looking forward to all the inspiring ideas, my favorite part of these wonderful link parties!
I'm linking up to the following link parties:
