~~Shaking Things Up a Bit ~~

What a spectacular morning we're having. With the feel of fall in the air our temperatures are in the upper 50's. Perfect for sitting outside and enjoying a hot cup of coffee and listening to the birds sing their melody.
As you walk up to the shop door the bench flanked by these gorgeous Boston Ferns greet you, in just a short time these will be replaced by gorgeous mums, pumpkins and a straw bale or two.


For now though, I've changed out the small bistro table vignette . I've exchanged the "used" candles for some golden yellow ones. These candles are perfect for your fall decorating, found inside in various sizes. :-))

I've added this great metal pumpkin wrapped in some "wonderful" twig vine. Perfect for your outdoor decorating. The metal pumpkins are already sold out, however the twig vine is still available, I can see it used in some great Halloween vignettes. :-))

The faux sunflowers have been sprayed for outdoor use. I think it needs a few gourds and baby pumpkins, once those are available I'll add those for a finishing touch. I don't mind using faux items to decorate with, but when the occasion calls for fresh I use fresh. :-))









Thanks for swinging by today. I hope this finds you enjoying this gorgeous weather on this pre-holiday weekend. Until next time...

hugs ~lynne~

I have a question...you said you sprayed your flowers for outdoor use. What did you use? Does it help with the fading?? Thanks

Lynne,
Love the beginnings of it all. I'm just getting mine out too. do not really like to do it this early, but now that i am retail, it has to be done.

I'm kicking myself right now as i just 'gave' away a metal thing like the one your sun fl. are in. we had a garage sale and i got on a frenzy of getting stuff out. oh well. gone now.
not much time for posting, visiting or crafting these days.seems like i am forever bookkeeping for the store, cleaning inventory, and getting it displayed . i know you understand all that.

Have a wonderful weekend.
