Autumn Joys

I have had this bench for years, painted it white and added the morning glory vines.
It's been on a covered porch until recently.
Now we must get a cover for it for the rainy days and cold weather if it's going to last!

Moving boxes are everywhere, but when I came across the bin
marked "Autumn" I had to decorate the mantle.
Crisp Air, Sunny Skies ~ My Favorite Type of Fall

I am so excited to see your world unfold. THAT BENCH! OMGOODNESS, I have never seen that one of yours! Your painting is just exquisite and beyond my understanding. You and our dear Penny....both of you blow me away.

YOUR MANTLE! I cannot wait to see more of this!

Good morning my sweet sister!

THANK YOU for coming to visit my post. Yes, my father actually was the GENIUS of creativity in our home. That man could make ANYTHING from NOTHING in his garage. He impressed me so....I would watch him tinker, hammer, saw, scrounge around in his drawers and transform junk into art. My mother was a SUPERWOMAN at crocheting and Barbie doll cloths and she also used SCRAPS of material to make the best outfits!

Thank you for your support. It means the world to me. LOVE! Anita

That bench is big and beautiful to sit upon. I agree with Anita, you blow me away at the beauty you create!
