I was puttering around outside today and noticed how much closer we are to settling down for a long Winter's nap. The leaves have started to change here in Northeast Pennsylvania, and even started to fall because I raked a bit from my garden. I said goodbye to my spent annuals in my front garden like my Cleomes, Sweet William and Cosmos, although some are still hanging in there. Everything is green again, I have grown to love the foliage almost as much as I love the blooms but it is sad to see everything go by. See you next season garden :)
When I was visiting blogs the other day I saw the Bren over at Bren's Coneflower Cottage had done the most lovely things with what could be a eyesore for most people. She made a bottle tree out of a electric pole and blue bottles.....so creative! I told Bren I would share what I've done with our unsightly pole that sits right in the center of our parking spaces. I stood a old wrought iron porch column upright and anchored it to the pole then planted a trumpet vine. That was a couple of years ago and you can see that it has gone up and over the iron.
How about you? Do you have a creative way you covered a "eyesore" inside or outside of your home? Let's see your best camouflage job.
Finally, I want to mention I was in contact with Brigitte of Posh Girl Vintage, what a sweeheart and a busy girl. If you get a chance run over and check out her vintage items, not only does she offer a mouth watering array of vintage dresses, but she carries vintage handbags, shoes, lingerie, and even men's vintage. She also has a blog and guess what? My favorite little yellow rose dress is the page's backdrop! :) I am showcasing Brigitte in my "Beautiful Things" display this week. Stop by her place and let her know how much you love her vintage flair.
Puttering and muttering....
