The other day it did not feel like Autumn in Scituate. The thermometer got to 90 degrees! But our exterior looked like fall.
Conor and I had quite a successful shopping trip to Home Goods. I was trying to make a wreath for the door and fighting with wire hangers and grapevines and then I saw this beauty at the shop.
Cue halo around wreath and dreamy music.
I had to have it. I especially love the dried wheat and the happy sunflowers:
The yellow goes so well with the buxton blue on our door. Do you notice another new addition?
Oh, you did notice! I’m so glad you like the vintage brass whale knocker. We didn’t have it up when I revealed the new exterior color. It was an etsy find and goes perfectly with our seaside home.
My planters with potato vines and sea grass are still going strong so I’ve left them for now. I’ve rounded out the rest of outdoor decor with faux pumpkins that I already owned. I really love the real thing but haven’t found any yet this year. I’m hoping to get some cinderella pumpkins at the ASP pumpkin patch once it opens.
For now, I have these ones on the steps –
Conor and I found this great woven one at Home Goods –
I couldn’t resist picking it up. I love it outside but it will also look great by out fireplace or in our front hall. So many options once we get some real pumpkins.
Oh, and I have to share this sweet autumn clematis with you. We’ve been waiting all summer for it to bloom.
It was worth the wait. If you stand under the moongate all you can hear is “bbbbzzzzzz” there are so many bees enjoying these flowers.
They smell heavenly too! I wish the blog was equipped with “smell-a-vision” for you!
I so enjoyed taking part in Season’s of Home: Autumn Edition! Hope you enjoyed visiting all the blogs. Be sure to check out my friend, Jen’s blog, City Farmhouse. She’s also sharing some fall inspiration today.
