Patiently Waiting for Fall

Like most of you, Fall time has been on my mind.
As the month of August rolled around, I already started looking 
here and there for the new Fall decor in stores.

When I decorated my front porch for summer back in May, I figured
it would stay the same until at least September. Wrong! LOL

During a trip to the fabric store, I came across this pretty outdoor fabric 
and I just couldn't help myself! 
It had been marked down and, in addition, it was on sale 50% off.
Right away I pictured it on my front porch!

Mind you, I was looking for Fall material, but, when I calculated in my head,
I realized that the cost for this project was only $10.00.
Sounds good to me! 

Well, although the kids are going back to school this month and
we really only have a few weeks left of summer, I told myself I needed another project 
to keep me going until the pumpkins can come out of the closet. :)

I know, I know! It is an illness!!! LOL

Here is what I did with the fabric. It is not much, but I figured it
will be put to good use at least until after Labor Day.

Since this decor will only be on my front porch for a few more weeks,
I did not want to spend any more money on flowers, so I used
the extra material to make my own for the wreath on the door and
added a few flowers I already had,

I just hope I don't run into anymore sales! :)
Now, to get ready for Fall, seriously! 
Thank you all for stopping by.

    I was wondering (if you do not mind sharing) do you know the name or brand of the fabrics? or where you bought them? They look perfect & might go in my sitting room, but I cant find them through normal google searches. I live in PA so no need to worry about copying. thanks for the inspiration!!!
