My Corner of the World

This is my ‘decked out for fall’ front porch. I love this porch because it has room for our whole family and more to hang out and the ceiling fans make it comfortable through at least three seasons of the year. I obsess way too much when I decorate the porch, but it all works out and I think this fall I did an outstanding job! (maybe I went a little far with that statement but I’m leaving it in!)

    This is guy started out as a dried gourd, but every time I looked at the gourd I saw a bird so I turned it into my version of a quail. Now he perches on my front porch steps in a nest that blew out of a nearby tree. I think he’s pretty happy!

   I found awesome mums this year and using the two colors really walks the eye up and down the steps, don’t you think? For the other props I walked around my house and scavenged through my basement and attic to pull out items to accessorize the look.  Below you can see more details of how the decorations carry up onto the porch. Wish you were here!
