Is Fall in the air where you live? Not so much here! It’s still in the 90’s here in TX so I’ve had a hard time getting into fall mode. We basically have a hot hot, and not so hot seasons. That means we have a hot hot summer, and cool winter with a few episodes of ice.
Since it’s still so warm here, we are still using the bbq pit (heck we bbq year around) and hanging around outside in shorts. So to get in the groove of fall, I decided to glam up our deck with touches of fall. We sit out here in the evenings enjoying the cooler night and family conversation. As an added bonus, the cooler temperatures means less bugs flying around.
Once the kids went back to school, pool time became nonexistent. Here is how our deck has been hanging out. Dead plants from the summer, and chairs leaned over to keep the cat hair to a minimum. He is an outside cat and loves to lounge on the cushions, which leaves tons of cat hair.
I started adding touches of fall with the gold tipped wreath I made from white feathers. After I made this wreath it hit me that I wanted to go with a Native American feel. From that it was dream catchers, god’s eyes, and lots of fall colored yarn.
Next to the wreath, I hung two limbs loaded down with yarn. All I did was tie on sections from all the yarn I had picked out. You can make this as long as you wish. The most time consuming part was cutting the lengths of yarn. I ended up ball parking the length (cause I’m impatient) and then just gave it a hair cut at the end to even up the bottom. We also brought out the chimenea for a little fall warmth. It’s been in storage, and I totally forgot that the color went perfectly with what I had picked out!
See these little votive holder in front of our vintage tool box? I had some smaller stronger feathers I ordered online (found them on Amazon), and just painted the tips like I painted the wreath feathers. These cute little votive holders will be making their way to our fall table setting indoors. Plus I’m in love with dream catchers right now. I have so many dreams floating around in my head that I need something to catch them and keep them for me. The god’s eyes in the vintage tool box were made by me and throw back youth camp skills. Thank you Camp Fire Camps for this skill, because all these year later I still remember how to whip one out!
You have seen these daytime pictures, and now I want to show you how we have been enjoying it in the evenings.
Who doesn’t enjoy sitting outside catching up on your day beside a fire! The lights and fire just create a relaxing atmosphere don’t you think?
