Sundays on Silverado #58

Life Lately

Fall Projects

The hint of fall in the air is inspiring me to get moving on my front porch for fall. You can see last year’s Cozy Fall Front Porch HERE.

I’m planning to get some pumpkins purchased in the next few days, and once again, I plan to use this method to preserve them.

Last year they lasted from mid-September until after Thanksgiving when I threw them away to transition to my Christmas decor!

I bought my mums already, because I got them for a steal of a deal at Lowes. For this year’s front porch plan, I wanted multiple small pots, so once again, the magic of paint came to the rescue to transform some old, junky pots into exactly what I wanted them to be.

I hope to have my finished 2021 front porch ready to show you soon!

Fall Baking

I’ve been doing some fall baking, too. I made a delicious pumpkin pecan cake for the Labor Day BBQ on Monday that was a big hit with the family. I also made some healthy bran muffins that I’ve been having for breakfast all week.

Watch for the recipes on the blog very soon, but if you can’t wait that long and are craving some fall treats, here are a couple of my favorites from last season…

In Case You Missed It…

I gave my laundry room a mini makeover, and shared a code from Church Street Designs, in case you’re looking for a simple and easy way to refresh your spaces with some of their lovely bottles, containers and labels. You can find it HERE.

I linked up for the monthly Prime Purchases post and shared some of my favorite finds. There were some good ones!

I love all the fall colors in this harvest tree from My Home of All Seasons, and the transformation of this old spoon rack into a baking rack from Junk Journal is simply amazing!

  1. Thanks for hosting and for the great ideas and recipes! I love that hammered finish spray paint – I used it on SO many things over the years. Some old brass lamps from the 90’s were transformed and lived in our guest room for 15 years…finally got new ones and the old ones are now at Goodwill. I even sprayed a few brass candlesticks and they turned out great. That stuff is magic!

  2. Niky,
    Thanks again for hosting this lovely party every week! I know how much time and effort goes into doing so and I want you to know that it is greatly appreciated!! Stay safe, healthy and happy!!

  3. Thanks so much for including my harvest tree in your features this week! I love seeing all the fall posts popping up. I’m also so glad you reminded me about your method of making pumpkins last outside longer! I’d completely forgotten and I remember how well it worked for me last year. Thanks again and have a great week ahead!

  4. Thanks so much Niky! I just read your tutorial on pumpkin preservation, and I’m definitely going to do that, I adore pumpkins but boy they can make a mess when they get rotten! Have a great week and have fun decorating your front porch~
