There is definitely a nip
in the air here in Western North Carolina and I am loving it! I took a ride to the WNC Farmer’s market on Saturday morning and lost my mind in the pumpkins!
My name is Paige and I’m a Pumpkin Lunitic.
I’ll readily admit it. I’m pretty frugal, but not when it comes to pumpkins. I spent $25 on pumpkins yesterday.
And I flipped my front porch for Fall!
All my Summer pots of flowers were spent so I brought in mums and coleus. I just love coleus ! It really thrives on my front porch.
I made new pillow covers for my wicker chairs also . I’d been collecting fabrics for a month or so with the change of season in mind .
Now it’s a lot more calm and neutral. The toile came from Hobby Lobby. That taupe buffalo check I got by the yard at Ikea in Charlotte when we picked up the couch.
The ottoman slipcover is my favorite.
I found this chocolate herringbone tweed burlap at Mary Jo’s Fabrics in Gastonia. I’m in love with it! I also decided to repaint the little nightstand in a more neutral color.
Annie Sloan Old White.
My first love! The color and product that started my Chalkpaint mania! I love how it looks with all the new colors for Fall! When I was at Hobby Lobby I found these drawer pulls in their perpetually 50% off bins.
They are a deep brown/ black wrought iron and go really well with the piece above the nightstand.
Believe it of not, this is a wrought iron door mat! Never seen anything like it before or since. It’s become a piece of architectural salvage on my front porch.
The antique Mason jars were a gift from my Dad . His Mother actually used these very jars for canning! I think they are the perfect shade of aqua. That silver tray is one of my favorite yard sale finds, I think unpaid $2 for it. The petite grapevine wreath was a $1.50 find on Saturday morning at Habitat For Humanity.
I also redid my chalkboard for fall.
I’ll show y’all more from the WNC later in the week. Thanks for stopping by to see my Fall porch!
