Happy Fall! Only two more days and we are officially in Autumn! Of course, it is still 90 degrees here! We really don’t get much of a fall and it usually doesn’t start getting cooler until Halloween. The leaves are changing color and falling at Christmas. Go figure! But my front porch is ready! No matter the weather!
I don’t think I have ever shown my front porch on the blog before, so let me introduce you! It’s very small and compact, but perfect for decorating.
I first added my wicker chair and covered the chair cushion with a piece of muslin. Then I found a brightly colored striped pillow in my ‘collection’ with the perfect fall colors.
I placed the matching wicker table next to it and then added lots of fall decorations! I filled the white wooden basket with burlap, pumpkins, and filler flowers. I also added a clipboard with a fall printable. I have a toilet paper pumpkin that one of the girls made many years ago, a white pumpkin Lauren carved with 4-H on it from her time in 4-H, a solar light, some driftwood, and a ruler pumpkin.
I brought out one of my crates and placed a wooden tool box, also made by Lauren in 4-H, and filled it with more burlap, candle holders, and sweater acorns.
Aren’t these acorns adorable? I found the instructions here.
Leaning against the crate is my oval chalkboard with the word ‘Thankful.’
I have another tall chalkboard, from this project, leaning in the corner with the word ‘Fall’ printed on it. This is my last piece of board from that puppet theater.
I have a faux chrysanthemum near the door. Faux because of our high temps and high drought. This is just going to have to do for now!
My last item is the wreath on the door. Lots of fall leaves and a big turquoise ‘S’ in the middle. Got to have my turquoise!
Did you spot the little guy nestled in the bottom? He’s a cutie!
I hope you enjoyed your little tour! Happy Autumn!

This is so cozy and gorgeous! Thanks for sharing at Your Inspired Design
Looks beautiful! I collect vintage yardsticks and your pumpkin idea would be awesome! Unfortunately, I live in the south and it doesn’t feel like fall yet and I just can’t get in the mood to decorate you know?! Thanks for linking up from Your Inspired Design.
Yeah. I totally understand! It is still in the 90’s here, but I just figured I might as well decorate! Thank you for coming over to take a look!
