~On the Porch~

Last weekend: I had fun getting the front porch all decked out for Fall- even though we were having summer-like temperatures. Pumpkins from the pumpkin patch, mums from the local garden center and a corn-husk-covered rope light to festoon the front door. Talk about a pain to make (literally- did you know dried corn husks are covered in little prickley things that stick all-over your skin? I know this intimately now!), but I love how it gives off a warm, inviting glow on these now dark evenings. :)

This weekend: Cooler temps, but I am sniffling and sneezing and generally feeling rotten due to a cold or some such thing. So not much getting done around here other than some feltie stitching and a few 'sit down' computer things in-between naps. Happily there's a Seahawks football game to enjoy tomorrow...

Have a lovely weekend!


  1. What a neat idea with the rope lights! It looks great and will really show up at night, I bet. We've been having mostly summer time temps too - yesterday was 95! Today was around 60 though and such a sweet relief. :)

  2. Your door trim looks like it's on fire! ha.

    Feel better!

  3. WoW ..... your porch looks fabulous and I love the rope light even though it sounds very painful!
    I hope you feel better soon lovely x
    love Jooles x x x
