It's really fall.
When I lived in the South I loved fall.
I LOVED FALL!!!!
Now that I live in the North?
Not so much.
Fall in the South means glorious days in the 80's, then 70's, then 60's, then 50's . . .
Well, you know what I mean.
And it lasts forever. Like months.
Fall in Michigan can be lovely, too.
Cider and cider donuts.
And wine tastings . . .
All three weeks of it.
Then it just gets cold.
This year I have made a concerted effort to relax and not let fall freak me out so much.
And it's been a nice one.
Which has given me one last chance to do the things I didn't get done over the summer.
Like put up a gallery wall on my back porch.
I had been wanting to finally use this neon sign that I bought at a yard sale 2 summers ago.
Have you figured out yet that it takes me about 2 years to get anything started?
It took me about 10 minutes to get these really crooked pallet boards screwed together, and about 5 minutes to wire this old neon light to it.
So this project took me 2 years and 15 minutes to complete.
All of the other stuff came from trash picking and cheap sales.
Except for the big pumpkins, which are heavy, I used fake stuff because the squirrels that think they own the back porch would think I was feeding them.
I decorate this seed sifter for fall and again for Christmas. It works as a really great wreath I think.
The chair that I was redoing never quite got finished.
I was busy making cushions for someone else . . .
So its cushion is going commando.
I protect its modesty with a quilt - which the squirrels ate a hole into.
Squirrels are just RUDE!
I used the pumpkin I painted last year.
The squirrels can't ruin that.
It lights up and that's fun.
I like my outdoor gallery wall.
But I have one question . . .
What do you think I should put in that awkward empty space above the mirror and to the right of the seed sifter?
This is your chance to tell me what to do.
You may never get the chance again.
So help a girl out.
The left side of the door belongs to my favorite project ever.
It's perfectly imperfect.
And I love it.
I think I've told you that before.
Maybe four or five times.
By the way, WELCOME!
Some of you may be visiting from a "Fall Tour" that I'm participating in with some blogger friends.
I'm glad you're here.
Have a seat and stay awhile. Not all my cushions are commando.
If you're not - well I'd love for you to check out the fall projects my girls are sharing today.
They aren't just blogger friends, I've met them all, and they're some dang good people, too!
I hope you like them as much as I do!
I hope you find something inspiring here! Just click on each picture to see what projects they have to share with you! Tell them I sent you!
