Happy Friday, friends! This Labor Day week has flown by and I’m anxious to enjoy the weekend. I’ve decided to pull the plants in my front flowerboxes which are looking rather sad. A trip to the nursery will result in getting cool weather plants and flowers to replace the dying petunias and lantana that never seemed to do well this in those boxes this summer. Sigh.
This will be the first time I’ve ever swapped out summer flowers for fall bloomers in my window boxes. I’m kind of excited about doing it. I’ve never wanted to spend the money before, but I like the thought of extending my gardening efforts through October and possibly into November.
Since my house is yellow, I for sure want to get some purple asters and flowering kale. I love ornamental peppers too, I’ll just have to see what colors are available. So that’s what I’ll be doing this weekend – now let’s enjoy some of what I saw this past week!
This Week’s Friday Finds:
You won’t believe this barn house loft makeover! The before photo is pretty rough and the after photos are soooo pretty. I wanna curl up in that metal bed at night and gaze out at the stars through the window.
Although this post about the best kitchens is from 2020, I happened to find it just this week. I think the third kitchen is my favorite. What’s yours?
Another post from 2020, this fall home tour from Jenna Sue Design is sure to inspire you and will give you ideas for fall decorating in 2021.
Since we’re talking about fall, I’m sure some of you have already indulged in pumpkin flavored lattes and muffins. If you’re a fan of anything pumpkin flavored, you don’t want to miss my Pumpkin Fettuccine Alfredo recipe. Truly – it’s to die for (if I do say so myself)! Add a salad and a glass of wine and you’ve got a great meal to enjoy.
I’ll finish off the week with this beautiful outdoor fall table setting by Beth at Home Stories A to Z. It makes me want to invite friends over for an outdoor fall picnic!
Enjoy your weekend – hopefully you’ll get some sunshine so you can head outside for a late summer walk or lunch alfresco!
