Hello everyone! A cool front moved in to Oklahoma while we slept and it finally feels like Autumn.
Below is our front entryway, decorated for fall.
Below is a Pinterest photo that I used for inspiration. Mine does not look just like it but I like the black funiture with the fall pillow and yellow mum. I also like how simple it is.
I made the pillow from a printed fabric panel that I had in the sewing room. (If you look back at posts about my craft room, you can see I have a huge amount of supplies, mostly from my dad's yard sale finds and my mom downsizing her stash when they moved)
Anyway, this panel was for a wall hanging but I used it make the pillow front. I reused an old living room floor pillow for the pillow. I used some iron on adhesive, WonderUnder, to attach it to the pillow front and then I zigzagged all the edges.
I made the rag banner across the window, also inspired by Pinterest. My strips were about 22 by 1 inch and just rough cut by hand -not precise or straight at all.
The base was 2 lengths of jute twine, I tied a loop on each end so they could just hang on a nail.
The $3 mum is from Walmart, repotted into a spray painted trick or treat pumpkin, $1 at Walmart.
The black chair and plantstand are from our backyard.
Grandson don't get porch decorations. One grandson brought the sunflower pillow into the house and said "found this outside" 😂
For supper last night, my parents, son and 2 grandsons were here.
I made soft chicken tacos with refried beans and salad.
Dessert was a just baked pumpkin pie.
My dad ate 1 taco and 2 pieces of pie 😄
I used a new to me pumpkin pie recipe. It has 2 tablespoons of molasses and it really adds a deep flavor. Apparently my dad and Gavin really liked the new recipe.
Happy Fall Y'all 😄
