I know I showed you my front porch already. But that was LAST YEAR’s porch. I finally got it done for this year, so of course I have to show that as well. I love each porch equally and would not want one to be jealous because they weren’t getting the attention they deserved.
If you walked up to our house this is what you would see….
Don’t ya wanna just sit and rock?
Call me crazy, but I just had to paint one of the pumpkins black.
So cute, right?
“A black pumpkin?!” you say? With words and polka dots. Oh yeah! I’m jammin’ the pumpkins this year!
It turned out so darling….I have thought about painting a few more. But every time I mention it my family looks at me like I’ve lost my mind.
My dad reads my blog and I know he won’t understand the painted pumpkin. I can just hear him, “If God meant for pumpkins to be black with polka dots….” It’s a flashback to fifth grade when I begged to get my ears pierced. “If God had meant for you to have pierced ears then you would have been born with holes in your ears.” (said in a very authoritative voice that will ground you for life if you argue with him…..which I didn’t do or my children might never have been born because I would still be in my room listening to Elton John on a record player).
I’m pretty sure God wanted this pumpkin to be black with dots. It wouldn’t look so darn adorable if He hadn’t planned it.
I love this spot on the porch. I could sit here for hours with my Kindle and a Diet Dr Pepper.
Bales of hay are so perfect for fall. And for us they are useful….the animals will eat them when I am finished using them for decorations. Don’t say it Dad. God really does want me to use these hay bales for decorations.
I just know it.
