Greetings, everyone!
I hope your week is going well.
I have been taking it easy this week and spending lots of time at home. 
I really needed to do that. :)

I have used this time to finish the bit of Fall decor I wanted to do on the front porch.
The truth is that, believe or not, I am the only one in our neighborhood that decorates 
the outside of our home all through out the year.
I know! What in the world!!! LOL
 And since the temperatures are still in the mid 90's, I figured I wait a little so nobody thinks 
the "crazy lady" is back at it again. :) 

I kept it very simple this year. The first thing I did was to make the pillow covers.
This year I decided to used different kind of fabrics with Fall colors instead of Fall prints.

 And I made an accent pillow for a little extra color.

To decorate the side table I used the solar rope lamp I made over the Summer to which I added some Fall accents, 
a little lantern that my daughter bought at Target and an orange bowl from Dollar Tree which I painted orange 
and it holds the twine pears I made last month.


On the door, I just have the simple wreath I made a few weeks ago.

On the side of the door, I kept the sign post and updated my old crate by giving it a good cleaning, a coat of paint 
and adding to it a vinyl Fall quote.

And I love as the sun starts going down and the lamp lights up by itself and gives the porch such a warm feel.

Sorry for the blurry picture. :)

This week we received a nice surprise I just had to share with you. Maybe this "outdoor decorating nut" 
is really up to something. :)

Thank all so much for taking the time to stop by.
I really appreciate your visits.
Until next time!

  1. I agree that your home is exceptional! I would think that your neighbors would join in! Is the fabric for the pillows an outdoor fabric? They are beautiful!

  2. So pretty! As always your pillows are eye-catching!

  4. Don't you love when the Homeowners Association notices your efforts? Congrats on that!! I love your porch in every season, but especially in the Fall. That lamp adds so much and I love that crate all dolled up!

  5. That note is so nice so I am copying it and sending to our neighborhood management company. They only send out mean notes and let me tell you...if there's a weed anywhere they will send it to you. We got one because they didn't like my bird feeder hanging on the fence. It would be nice if people are told when things look great! Your home always looks amazing inside and out!!
