Fall Display


****Update, this giveaway is over...here is the winner***

Thanks for coming back and checking in on my progress with my Mum's The Word challenge. If you missed the first post, you can go here.

Remember Lowe's has sponsored me to get creative with chrysanthemum's. 
I hate waiting for the reveal...don't you?

Here is what my entry looks like now




That's me in the pink reflecting in the door. Now let me show you how I put this together. 

I had these old baskets in the garage


A little black and white paint and now they look like this


A hollowed out foam pumpkin painted white, on the right.


Then I decided to get a bit more creative. I picked up a stencil with some small interesting shapes


Blue paint, a stencil brush....and now I have this


A Ginger Jar pumpkin. It's that touch of whimsy that makes me smile.


A fresh new doormat


But the one thing...if I had to pick just one....that make's me so happy

Is saying goodbye to this


The transformation of this ugly threshold is here

A few more mum's and pumpkin's, and cabbage, and gourd's, and pepper's...



And my front went from this


To this

  2. SPECTACULAR Linda! Of course you have a lovely entry to start with, my goodness it is gorgeous! Now I have to go get some decor items and spruce mine up. I think Im going to try some HYPERTUFA pots ..first of all I had to find out what that word meant.. so cool and looks so easy to do. I have 5 gallon buckets so I might try 2 big ones! earmarking that DIY
    Have a great day, and again, fantastic entry decorating my friend!

  107. Hi Megan, you don't have an email address in your profile so I could not reply back to you directly. This held up so well that I will be painting the threshold on my back door. Good luck!
