Seasonal Confusion!



I know this looks like a Spring post but its not! I just took this picture this morning and we are expecting 80* today. For those of you that are experiencing Fall I am incredibly jealous. Last week we had some much needed rain and I ran out and bought pumpkin pie. I was almost giddy that Fall was here. But mother nature has played a joke on Southern California and snatched it back away. The story behind my old chair....It was a cast off from an acquaintance. It had a wrapped rattan seat that had come apart. I grabbed it right up knowing I would turn one man's trash into my treasure! I freshened the black paint up and painted on Bonjour with the help of a stencil. Then I used some old chicken wire to create the "bowl" and line it with sheet moss. And voila, I have a planted chair for almost nothing.

It would be nice in Ky. if it would just stop raining. It has rained big time today and rain is forecasted for tomorrow. Then it will get cold and we will have a snow storm. That's the way it is here. If you like the weather wait a day or two and it is almost a season change.
Love the chair with the plant.

Such a pretty chair!! Mother Nature has been playing with us here in New York, too. It was 80 degrees two days ago and we got infested with lots and lots of lady bugs. Not the pretty bright red ones we used to see as kids but these other ones that I don't think are even from this country!! :) It's getting cooler again but still in the 60's during the day. I do have to say that this is the prettiest fall around here that I've seen in years and years. : )

I love your chair makeover ... it looks great. The white pumpkins below are adorable. I'm in CT and Fall is here. The leaves are gorgeous and we had great weather for a bit. It's been rainy and cold for the past few days, though, and looks like it's going to stay that way for a while.
