Share Your Creations Party #6 And The Rest Of My Fall Patio

I hope you are all having a great week!! Mine has been very busy! The weather has been nice so I'm trying to get my fall planting done. Just a little more to go!



We are already on party #6? Wow! Time is just flying by...



Share Your Creations


We had alot of wonderful creations last week...keep it coming!



Look at this adorable Halloween mesh wreath by Becca at Adventures In Decorating...LOVE it!

Look at these funny vampire pumpkins by Brandi at Brandi's Crafts...hilarious!
What a beautiful Tuscan fall table by Shenita at Embellishments by SLR.

I love these topiaries by Farica at Southern Charm. She has a tutorial too!


Look at these super cute monogrammed boots by Jennifer at Life On Old Savannah.
Great stuff guys! Keep them coming!!

I showed you part of my patio the other day, but just finished the rest of it. There is no doubt that it's fall when you are out on my patio! lol...I decided to have some fall pillows made to tie everything together. I love the leaf pattern and it had just the right green to coordinate with the sofa and chairs. It is not outdoor fabric, but should hold up for a while since the porch is covered. I'll just have to watch out for the wind and rain.
I have been wanting some lanterns that you guys have been showing all over blogland! I found the red ones at Pier 1 Imports and fell in love with them!
I bought the pansies today and just planted them. Love the yellow, orange and red together.
Lots of cute scarecrows! One of my favorite things at this time of the year...
Here is a closeup of one of the fall pillows.
Here it is again... I am working on the front yard and fire pit patio now. I'll show you soon, but the kitchen is next on the list to show.



What did you create?
You are welcome to link any item you have created, a room or outdoor space you have decorated, hand painted furniture...the list goes on and on! If you have an Etsy store you are welcome to add your store link to your blog. All I ask is that you link back to my blog so others can find the party.

Hi Kristen,
Love your features, very inspiring! I LOVE your backyard and those red lanterns are super cute. I've been on the lookout for some. Love your pillows, too! Thanks for hosting! I'm sorry I put up my wreath from last week. I was trying to share my wreath I made today, but because it's a video, I had to select a similar wreath, hope that's ok.
XOXO ~Liz

Your porch looks like such a nice place to relax. I love how you mixed red, yellow, and orange pansies in your container. They look great with your green cushions. Hope you have some great fall weather so you can really use that pretty porch.

Gail said...

Have a wonderful day,
Gail
