We have new neighbors on our street.They have not actually moved into their home yet as they have been working diligently to give their 1970's Dutch Colonial a little face lift by updating bathrooms, replacing carpeting, painting and the like. I wanted to make them feel the neighborhood love, but wasn't sure when they would be at the house, so baked goods or a welcome basket would not do. Then the idea hit me, a pumpkin! But not any old pumpkin, a "Welcome" pumpkin!
So out came the black paint and a bit of twine and voila...
the "welcome" pumpkin!
This is my kind of project....quick and fun with great results.
It looked pretty festive in my foyer too... I considered doing another but time would not allow, so off it went to my new neighbor's porch.
They were quite delighted and so was I. Such a simple way to make someone "feel the love."
How was your week-end? The weather here was glorious, perfect for raking leaves, a long bike ride and the neighborhood bonfire. And, sadly, the last cross country meet my oldest will run as a high school student. Suddenly I am struck by the fact that not only will the coming year yield many new and exciting changes for him, but also many lasts. Bittersweet.... but that is how life is no?
Does your room need a “prescription” for a change of decor, function or design? If so please contact me, I would love to help your room feel better with a Room Rx.
