~neutral heaven~

Hello everyone!!!

How is this beautiful autumn day
treating you??

I hope it's good!
I hope it's sunny!

we've been rained on over here, since Oct. 12th
although the sun is peeking out today! :)

I have to say....I'm not ready for the non-stop
rain.....not.  quite.  yet.
well actually I'll never be ready...
who am I foolin'???


I love neutrals....

I just never get tired of no color....
white, cream, grey, beige, off-white...
never tire of it....

white bowls, plates, cups
towels, slipcovers, blankets,
walls, cabinets...

no need for color here...
I got color outside...hehehehe
trees, flowers, grass...

I do have color in my clothing...
is black a color?? girls basically force
me to buy bright I'm not 
just a walking monotone girl...

I guess I just l.o.v.e.
the neutrals.....

they make me happy.....

how about you?
are you a neutral girl at heart??

or do you yearn for color??

are my children color deprived??
{well we do have  s o m e   color}
here & there....

well sort of ....
in their rooms at least! ;)

I do believe I could live with the little chair
above.....cutest little thing huh??

Hope you are all doing fantastic!!

~autumn inspiration~

Hello friends!

Been a little buried over here....but
wanted to stop in & say hello! :)

I'm getting ready to decorate my 
front porch ~ a little~

just barely enough to be some kind of
respectable blogger.....
how do you put up with me??? ;)

so I've been off browsing for inspiration.....

I like the simplicity of this one little
pumpkin in a zinc pot....

isn't this cute w/ the silver & pumpkins mixed 

I know, I know....this doesn't look like a front porch....
I'm usual! hehehe
it's the pinterest/facebook/blog/magazine ADD
kicking in!

ok.... f.o.c.u.s.....

front porches.....

find some that inspire me.....

k here goes....

I kinda like the look of piles of pumpkins
mixed in with the decorative cabbage....
I'm still trying to decide if I want color
or if I want to go with all neutrals...

my all time favorite picture is from Dusty Lu's....
~boy is she ever talented!

I absolutely love the white pumpkins & corn stalks 
mixed with the faded hydrangea blooms....

I'm still trying to find a place that has
white pumpkins...

I might just have to paint orange ones...

I love the asters planted in the pails too...
simple but beautiful!

I adore this next picture too....
I'm sure a lot of you have seen it...

it's been around the net awhile now...
but it's just gorgeous!

just need me some big ol' urns to dump
a pile of pumpkins into!

love it!

k back to color....
love the pumpkin topiaries...

you like?
or do you prefer the white pumpkins? (duh!)

but seriously!
the bright orange is kinda fun!

did you see this one from 

such a great use for an old chair frame
you might have laying around!

ADD warning.....I'm back inside....
I'm thinking I love this little vignette...

super cute ~ I think they are spray painted pumpkins...

I love the scampering rats on the piano!
so fun!

well I'm off to get some corn stalks
and a few more pumpkins....

I think tomorrow is our last day
of sunshine...:(

we've had the most amazing has not
rained since I can even remember!!!
probably 2 1/2 or 3 months!!!

can you believe it??
but it starts this weekend....
pouring rain....
on it's way...

Normally I would ask you if you've
got your decorating done....

but I am pretty certain I'm one of the last 
ones so I won't even go there! haha!

Hope everything is going great!
Take care my friends!
