Certainly I have been enjoying the inside of my new home, and getting it decorated for fall. However the outside has many charms as well, with wrap around covered porches and a very nice view. I bought some red citronella candles at the hardware store of all places, and love lighting them each evening and sitting out to enjoy the dusk and any wild life that happens to pass through the field off the porch. I have seen groups of deer, a huge gaggle of turkeys, and even a fox.
The size of the front porch is really generous, and I love feeling as if I have both an outside living room and dining room as well. Believe it or not, we eat most of our evening meals out here.
Our outside furniture is covered in a very neutral golden tan, which works with a lot of other colors, and is particularly nice with my dark red accents. The candles were a lucky find, and I already had the two red pillows.
My most recent quick little sewing project was to make an additional pillow for the love seat. A dear friend recently traveled to France, and knowing how I love fabric, picked up some toile yardage for me in Paris. When I saw the piece of fabric, I knew instantly how I would use it! Can you believe what a great match it is to the cushions on the loveseat? I could not have done that on purpose if I had tried for a year!
Come and sit a spell, won't you? Heaven knows I can grab a quilt for you to bundle up in if it gets chilly!
