The weather has turned off cooler the last week or so. We have taken advantage of it and spent a lot of time on our front porch. We have been enjoying the humming birds.
With the cooler weather, the thought of fall is on my mind. I have had this candelabra piece for almost two years. It was still in the box because I had no where for it in our other house. I assembled it last night and added some cheap silk flowers. I love the fall touch that it adds to the front porch.
I also had another piece that I kept in our fireplace in our other house. It held pillar candles, and it was always pretty glowing with candle light. I had some leftover flowers and only a few pillar candles. I threw it together and placed it on the other end of the front porch.
I also created a checker area on the front porch. Michael's dad gave us this checkerboard before he died. He grew up playing checkers on it. I wanted Michael to make some checker pieces, but he has never taken on that task. However, he was in the process of building a chess board. He had all the pieces cut out. I was stuck in the shop helping him get it in order. I found the pieces and decided that they could be used as checker pieces. He wasn't thrilled, but I promised him that they would be alright. We put the board on top of an old barrel. The kids are always gathered around playing checkers.
I am ready to get some rocking chairs for my front porch. I am also ready to find the rest of my fall decorations. I love this time of year!
