Helping Others, Helping Mom

Today was a day filled with helping others.  Who doesn’t enjoy helping others especially when it comes to decorating.  Primitive Decorating!!


I took Mom to get some gourds and pumpkins today and she really enjoyed herself.  She hasn’t had so much fun in a long time.  This home that we go to is located out in the country and this lady has great prices and lots of different gourds to choose from.  She has mums and lots of them and the pumpkins are huge this year.  We are going back in a week or two so I can get some, but we have to wait on the arrival of our money tree (lol).  I told Mom to get some gourds that would be easy to dry so she picked a few out and bought me a couple as well.  Here are the gourds that I picked out.




Cameron got a small pumpkin.


Mom asked if I could help her decorate her front porch and I gladly agreed to help.  Who doesn’t enjoy helping someone else?!?  So, I placed everything on her porch and this is what it looks like.  What do you think?



Here are some closer shots of her pumpkins and gourds.  I just love the colors of fall.






My sweet hubby even stopped in the country and grabbed me a few ears of corn.  Gosh, I love him.  So, I shared a few with Mom and kept some for myself.


Good thing we got them now because they were getting ready to pick them.  I thought after the season was over I would take them off the ear, put them in a jar with a prim label that I bought from Yankee Lane Primitives.  Sounds like an idea ~ don’t ya think?


Here is Mom’s porch completed.

Did you enjoy the decorating that I did for Mom?  I thought it looked beautiful and I think she was pretty happy with it as well.  Makes you wanna decorate ~ huh?  It is funny because her porch is completed and I am still having a difficult time trying to figure out mine (lol).  I of course will post pics as soon as my porch is done.  Hope you all have a blessed weekend.

Until Next Time ~ Blessings Always!

It looks very nice, Lisa! I think it looks welcoming and it sure was nice of you to do it for her! I know what you mean about figuring out something for someone else but being stumped when it comes to your own though! :)

Can't wait to get my porch decorated now!

Have a great weekend!

Hi Lisa,
You did a fabulous job decorating your Moms porch.
Now feel free to hop over to my house and do mine!! :)

Ive been Fall decorating inside but cant seem to get the mood for outside.
Doesnt help that today was 90 degress outside.

Your moms porch is prim perfection. Love it!!!!! I wish I was as good at displaying things as you are.

Lisa said...

What a great display on the porch. I am very excited to see how yours will turn out. It has inspired me to get busy tomorrow. Thanks for the inspiration. I really love the darker green pumpkin/gourd. I am not sure which it is. I didn't know that there were green pumpkins so maybe it is a gourd. I love the green. i would love to grow some of those. Have a great weekend.
