My favorite Fall colors are burgundy and purple. Not sure if that came about from the Fall asters in the fields where I walk my dog or some beautiful fabric I ran across one time or another. Sure I like to add some orange and maybe yellow but rarely brown. I wanted burgundy planters to decorate either side of my front door, I had some metal ones bought at IKEA and not used, so I decided to paint!
To make the planter look more interesting, I sponged on a darker color with a metallic sheen:Voila! Perfect planters for my fall display. I bought the coleus at half price when annuals were on sale in August, planted the pots and put them under a tree in my back yard and they grew like weeds! (Can’t even see the planters, but I know they’re there!)
I’d love to share my thoughts on the first episode of the new Project Runway season, but I fell asleep within the first half hour. That may be because it was a bit of a yawn because it was just like previous seasons, except that it took place in LA instead of New York. Or, more probably it was because I was working out of town and had a long, hard day and then collapsed in my hotel room.
I’ll watch a rebroadcast and review it from a sewer’s point of view. In the meantime, here is an entertaining review from one of the Go Fug Yourself bloggers, posted on the New York Magazine/Fashion site:
I have three words for Michelle Obama, “elegant, understated fashion”. She simply has too many choices; she needs to learn to be a good editor. Style is as much about what you don’t choose as what you do.
