September - Autumn Colours

Cooling temperatures. So much work to do in the next two months before the weather is too cold to work outside. 

I went out to the shed to see what work I have in waiting. List making was on my mind.

While there I re-found my wire 'wreath'. I wanted something Autumn and  ...

... made an Autumn sign for the wreath. Added hydrangea blossoms and hung it on the front door.

I painted an 
old board orange, stencilled leaves and fruit, used individual stencil letters for 'Autumn'. Added the sign to the wire wreath.

Always fun making something from thrifted and found items.

On Labour Day I found a few things in the shed to bring in and clean up.

I had forgotten the small Franklin vases, a clean with a damp cloth, tagging and they are ready to go to my booths.

On my walk ... (new addition to my posts), this post - echinacea blossoms.

Thank you for visiting today.

  1. I love your wire wreath! And I love that you painted it! My stepson gave me several barbed wire wreaths he had at the ranch. I never thought about painting them.....but I’m thinking about it now! I may do one today! You have such good ideas!

    I love your daily walks. There’s always something blooming! At least for now!

  2. Absolutely love your wreath! And all the bud vases, too. :)

  3. I wish you lived closer. I’m about to start going through our old house where we are storing 30 years of STUFF.
    I’m sure there are things in there you would love.

  4. I love those vases! I have the hardest time passing up floral vases :)

  5. Very cute Fall wreath - love the painted sign in the middle!

  6. I love your Autumn wreath! Not cooling down here, it was 98 degrees this week!

  7. Hello, your Autumn wreath is beautiful. Well done. I love the coneflowers! Happy Monday, wishing you a great day and happy new week!

  8. The wire wreath is perfect with the sign you made. I like it before the flowers were added...very rustic and pretty! Love all of the pretty vases too. Enjoy your week!

  9. Joy - a gorgeous wreath. The addition of the hydrangea blossoms is the perfect touch to create a finished look - and I think they bring out the color of the stenciled leaves. Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!

  10. Your wire wreath is simple and pretty. Just the thing for autumn.

  11. In June I had to clean out our storage area because we were selling our airplane hangar at the airport. Now I'm really limited on space for seasonal items except for two small boxes of Christmas decorations. - Margy

  12. I love those colors in this fall wreath! Also, I would like to invite you to link this post to the GATHERING OF FRIENDS LINK PARTY 6 over on my blog.

  13. Your wire wreath is very cool! You've got me thinking about making some kind of wreath for our front door.

  14. Adorable wreath. That brown and white jug is gorgeous.

  15. That's a lovely wreath, Joy! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm!

  16. I love THRIFT Stores...and Goodwill. I love the things I can find there to revamp, recycle and reuse for other things. Great job on the wreath. Very cute.


Thanks for visiting. I read and appreciate all your comments. Joy
