Who’s here? The mums! They have landed! A sure sign of fall.
After checking garden centers just last weekend for mums and leaving empty handed and feeling down right crazy, I found some! I was driving by Home Depot Wednesday night when I spotted them (normally I’m a Lowe’s girl but I will stray for mums in August). I hit the breaks so hard that I nearly got whiplash. I should probably have a bumper sticker “Will break for fall decor” or “Makes abrupt turns into pumpkin patches”. No? Maybe just “Don’t follow too closely”. That should encompass it all.
I digress. The mums…I only got 4. There will be more (I’m a poet and didn’t even know it). Plus it is 90 degrees afterall so these guys are going to blow their blooms open in no time. At that point, I will plant them in the garden so they surprise me again this time next year when they come back.
What do you think of my new urns? I got them at wholesale prices.
I love the rusty look but normally would not buy something like this simply because these are vintage-inspired and not actual vintage. Not that everything in my house has to be vintage but I’m not a fan of buying up all of the repros. I’d rather get the real thing but couldn’t turn them down. I caved for these little guys because I thought they were still kinda unique.
By the way, I held back from buying a scarecrow that was tempting me. He was yelling “Buy me! Take me home!” Seriously. It is only August Scarecrow! Calm yourself. I’ll be back for you…
