Spurred on by my recent black frame painting success, I sprayed 8 picture frames, one large mirror and a lazy Susan in the same gloss black color. It's a cheap easy way to make a big change in your decor. I only spent $4 on the paint for all of this.
Now I just have to decide where to hang everything and get DH to help me hang them.
I have been working a little on these 6-inch squares. I am throwing around the idea of making a Christmas tree skirt from them. I have 12 made so far. I would need quite a few more and they take longer than I thought to sew. There are 17 pieces in each 6-inch block.
I get a lot of use out of the table runners I have been making all year. Just a few weeks ago I finished this one and have already used it at least three times.
It's hanging over my long kitchen counter now with this pumpkin display. Yesterday it was out on the deck for dinner. I rearranged the deck and set a little autumn table for dinner for two.
After dinner I brought it and the pumpkin centerpiece inside. Today I changed the deck table setting to this one which uses my quilts from last year. I missed them. :) This is the first time I've had them out since last year.
Whenever I took a coffee break, I sat out here to enjoy the last remnants of warm weather. Yesterday it was near 80 degrees, today I am not even sure if we hit 60.
I think that length of orange poka dot fabric goes nicely with my centerpiece.
I walked around today and took a few pictures of fading flowers. Bee Balm is one of those flowers that looks nice even as it's dying. I hope I look half as good on my way out.
My sedum has turned from it's pink color to a deep Burgundy. I noticed that all the bees have left it since it turned colors. I don't think I have ever noticed that before.
It's about time for me to check my meatloaf in the oven. We are having mashed potatoes and spaghetti squash with it for dinner tonight. It will be my 1st spaghetti squash of the year and mashed potatoes are a treat because I only make them about four times a year.
I hope you are all having a great weekend.
