I've been on the look out for great fall porches- because I'm participating in "The Inspired Room" Porches on Parade. You can too, just link over to her site and share your pictures.
I love how a fabulous wreath and a couple of pumpkins can make a Beautiful Statement.
This wreath just pops out at you as you drive by- totally fabulous against the white door.
This porch just screams comes sit here and enjoy Fall with me- Love the white rockers, so Cozy.
Oh so whimsical, you've got to know that children live here.
Who would of thought, some sticks painted black and a few stuffed black birds and you have a spooky but "elegant" presentation.
As I was out and about taking pictures....I had one observation, very few people are dressing their porches for fall. Kind of sad, I wonder if they are just too tried to put forth the effort, or just "gave up the ghost." Could it be that we are a dying breed? ( I think not, we can make a difference.}
"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before.
Everyone can create. You don’t need money, position, or influence in order to create something of substance or beauty."
You may think you don’t have talents, but that is a false assumption, for we all have talents and gifts, every one of us. The bounds of creativity extend far beyond the limits of a canvas or a sheet of paper and do not require a brush, a pen, or the keys of a piano. Creation means bringing into existence something that did not exist before—colorful gardens, harmonious homes, family memories, flowing laughter.
What you create doesn’t have to be perfect. So what if the eggs are greasy or the toast is burned? Don’t let fear of failure discourage you. Don’t let the voice of critics paralyze you—whether that voice comes from the outside or the inside.
If you still feel incapable of creating, start small. Try to see how many smiles you can create, write a letter of appreciation, learn a new skill, identify a space and beautify it.
Thanks to Melissa- for encouraging us to create!
[just a little heads up, come back Tuesday to join in the scavenger hunt- a prize is involved.]
