It is time that all the plants get brought inside for the winter. I have so many plants that it is hard to find space for all of them without looking crowded. I searched for some inspiration and came up with these via desire to inspire. If I didn't already have too many plants I would be spending today looking for two of the huge Fig plants in large beautiful pots.
I got the itch to repaint our front door the other day. I found a great deep gray called cracked pepper and kept the trim white. The door has been paint by me a few times now and was most recently a bright green. The door didn't originally have any visual interest, so I attached the trim pieces to give it a little more detail.
I also switched out all of our furniture, so that I can refinish the mid century set this winter. I dug up some pillows to compliment the paper lanterns I had left from last year and we picked up a few gourds from a produce stand. And now it looks like a completely different front porch.
I found a new wool rug yesterday at a thrift store for $10,and I love it. It is just in time for fall, so soft and warm underfoot. I believe the the original intent for this was to be a mattress topper (?). It has large elastic bands at each corner that look like they would keep it from shifting. I would have no need for such a large mattress topper, being that we still sleep in a full size bed. Instead I spent last night running my feet over it, while our 3 dogs soundly slept.
