Up until last weekend I had no idea what direction my summer porch decoration would go. Turquoise and blue like last year? Yellow and navy like the year before?
And then I found this pot of annuals at my local grocery store:
What colours would you call these?
My daughter and I have settled on purplish-blue and magenta-pink.
And a colour scheme is born!
Pink and purple it is.
To begin my quest for "purpley-pinkness" I spray painted this tray purple and purchased a pot of mixed pink impatiens.
I then echoed the colour of my annuals in the starry wreath that hangs from the front door.
I placed some pillows on the Muskoka chair to add some comfort for summer book reading and lounging.
(I'll tell you a bit more about the purple patchwork pillow in a later post.)
As well, I planted several more annuals in shades of pink and purple in a handful of other pots.
Now our porch is basking in pretty perfection.
Speaking of perfection . . .
Our youngest son came home from school today with the biggest smile on his face.
He had received the "Bucket Filler of the Week" award from his kindergarten teachers.
A "bucket-filler" is someone who does little things on a regular basis to bring joy and happiness to those around them.
This week, Camden was particularly good at this!
And we are so proud of our littlest dude!
Have a wonderful week everyone!
