I put them on my front porch. On the bench I painted this summer. It's kind of cute, don't you think?
I used some samples of CeCe Caldwell paint I've had hanging around for a while - Destin Gulf Green (more like a teal) and Alaskan Tundra Green. The bench was old, dirty and oily in spots so it did some funky stuff when I put the paint on it.
I love it a little.
I was going to sell it, but I'm not sure now.
My Autumn Joy Sedum is over two feet tall so it doesn't stand up very well to the rain. The clumps were all laying down from the center out so I just cut it all, put it in some galvanized buckets of water, and put them on the porch.
I'm quite the decorator.
The pine cones were leftover from a Christmas arrangement I had in the window-box two years ago. When I planted the box this summer I pulled them out and threw them on the porch. I knew they would come in handy someday.
Someday I'm going to figure out a good time of day to take pictures of my porch.
Very important questions.
1. Should I paint a runner up the stairs to the door? The porch is kind of ugly. I think it might be less ugly with a painter runner.
2. These pumpkins that aren't pumpkin orange - can you eat them? I always cook my pumpkins and use them for soup, etc. What does a blue pumpkin look like on the inside? Would it make blue soup?
These are big problems. I need big help.
Make something wonderful today!
