Happy Weekend to you.
This first weekend of October is already looking good. Beautiful, sunny weather plus Patrick’s coming home for a visit. And maybe we’ll see the last James Gandolfino movie with him, I’ve been wanting to see a good romantic comedy (although I still feel sad about the loss of Gandolfino).
In the meantime I thought I’d show you a few photos of my entryway because I’m still at it. I’m still trying to tidy up the house for my Fall tour.
Although based on all the gorgeous home tours I’m seeing everywhere in blogland, it’s clear I may be the last one of the season.( is it just me? but I can’t figure out how everyone gets their homes decorated so quickly…what’s the secret anyway? please tell me if you know).
Anyway, back to my front door.
This is my entryway.
Even though I love seeing lush Fall decorations in photos, when it comes to my own entryway I really don’t do much. A few pumpkins, a pretty plate and some flowers, that’s it.
Maybe it’s because I really don’t have a traditional entryway. It’s more like a pass through area.
The French doors to my office are right there in the entry. Maybe you remember me painting these French doors from white to black. I also painted this entry table red on a whim and I still don’t love it, but it seems to go well with the Fall season.
This is the view from the front door. See what I mean? It’s a very open floor plan.
I love my quirky hat collection…
and this is the new plate, courtesy of the thrift store.
And before I go, here’s my little tip for the day.
If you don’t want to spend money on fresh flowers go outside and find a pretty tree. I cut a few branches and filled this pitcher with leaves a few fake berries.
How simple is that? Not a flower in sight.
Enjoy your weekend my friends….
