I GIVE UP, IT'S FALL!!



There is no sight of fall color
within seventy-five miles!!
But I am loving all the fall color in blog land.
You have dragged me kicking and screaming
but I give up!!

It was ninety degrees here today but FALL is really HERE!
I see it in beautiful examples all over blog land.

I decided if I didn't get started I would never get to the finish line...Thanksgiving. This afternoon I sat down with some boxes from the guestroom closet (I'll have to show it to you, someday. It is really scary. Maybe for Halloween!).
 This urn was sitting in the garage, partially painted silver. I didn't like how it was turning out so I just quit. I had some aged iron spray paint and thought that would be good for fall.
 You can just barely make out the grape design .
I already had everything except these little pumpkin thingies and some small scented pine cones that I purchased recently.


It was extremely difficult to position the green pumpkin. It is very irregularly shaped, just like a real pumpkin. I finally decided to go with the flow and get the best overall fit.
 This is what usually resides in the foyer. I thought this would be a good place for my first "Pumpkin Topiary".



Whew! I'm in... the season. As has oft been said   Happy Fall Y'all!!
I'm working on more fall decor to show you soon.


If you enjoyed your visit please leave a comment.
If you didn't, leave one anyway. Might make you feel better.

Sure makes me happy!


I am joining these lively parties, won't you come along.

Looks great, Ginger! I understand what you are talking about...its like when everyone else talks about spring and here in Minnesota we're still buried in snow! LOL!

Maggie said...

Well you certainly are in the season now!
Love the topiary you've created and it looks great there in the hallway.
You've inspired me to get out the boxes and start decorating.

I love it, you did a great job! I like that the pumpkins are different colors-enjoy:@)

Debbie said...

I love it!
I'm just exactly like you in that it's been so hard because of this doggone weather. I was trying to do a project outside yesterday and was frustrated by the heat.

I'm diving in too, though.
I'll bet my stuff won't look as good as yours.

Susan said...

Just gorgeous! And perfect for that spot in the foyer.

shannon i olson said...

everything looks wonderful! I bet by the time your colors get going we will have lost all our leaves. Today will be 80 and likely the last one, Our street is full of yellow, so beautiful against a sunlit blue sky!

Sheila said...

Wow 90 degrees?! I'm sweating just thinking about that, but I love your topiary. So cute and just right for fall even if it is 90 degrees, lol.

It's gorgeousness on a pedestal! I love how dramatic it looks, you did a fabulous job of it.

Shelia said...

Hi Ginger! Oh, I love this! You have slid into Fall beautifully! You're always so creative and the tiered punkins are wonderful.
Now it's still close to 90' here but I've just been Falling all over the place! ;)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Wow! It's beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

Tracy Suzanne said...

Your home always looks so pretty. You'd never know that you had any trouble with your topiary by the looks of it. You did a beautiful job.

I know what you mean about this hot weather. If I could get away, I'd come pick you up and we'd both go up to the Smoky Mtns and enjoy some fall color and a lot of shopping too.

Hugs...Tracy :)
