The mums I bought back in mid-September are well past their prime now so I tossed them and tackled the planters on the porch steps as well. Again, more cut hydrangeas and some faux evergreen sprigs, no water needed.
Finn is enjoying his newfound Invisible Fence freedom. He spends most of his day foraging in the yard – if it’s not nailed down, he eats it. Most of my mums were flowerless anyhow thanks to this little guy. Finn’s new favorite game is Toss the Moss. He digs into my urns, steals the moss and plays a game of catch with himself. It ends up being a tasty snack as well.
Thanksgiving preparations have begun! I spent this morning polishing silver and washing serving pieces. The paperwhites just opened today and look so pretty on the table – I couldn’t resist. Brown velvet ribbon, white pumpkins and some acorns will make this the perfect Thanksgivingmas table.
The windows have finally been dressed. The panels are hung but temporarily as I need the dry cleaner to hem them and sew a bit of trim on for me. And, some finishing touches on the wall. It is isn’t a dining room of mine until there are plates on the wall!
And, I’ll leave you with some painted brick prettiness. This is a foundation office that got a facelift this past summer. The brick was repointed and then painted. The second picture of the side that faces the street is more true to the color of the paint.
