I know that Fall is approaching when I see the beautiful mums in the garden centers
and even the grocery stores. As soon as they appear, I have this need to buy some
to begin decorating one of my porches.
The porch you see from all of the rooms on the main floor.
I removed a tall plant stand on the porch
and replaced it with my vintage Singer Sewing Machine iron base.
On my last antique shopping trip with the girls I found this vintage watering can.
I love that it still has a good part of the label on it and the painted spout.
Last year, I had tall dried corn stalks in this corner too;
however, this year I decided that I wanted to keep things simple
and not too overly done. Well as non-overly done as I get.
Mums, one pumpkin, some vintage items on a table . . . simple.
When thinking on how I wanted to dress this porch for Fall,
I decided that I would embellish the porch with the fall colors in pillows and flowers.
And a matching animal print votive used as a vase was a must to have with the pillow,
that was on super clearance at Pottery Barn. $14 for this outdoor pillow, 75% off!!
And a pumpkin here and there.
Not like one year, when I had a dozen assorted pumpkins
including a couple of pumpkin topiaries on the porch that you can see on my 2013 Fall Porch.
Mums placed in a tall galvanized flower bucket.
The tea cart will be ready for an apple cider station or hot cocoa…
As my “little lady” observes.
My upper porch a.k.a. big balcony overlooks our back yard with a wooded golf course view.
It’s definitely a cozy space.
Cozy . . . is that just another word for small?
However, I love cozy on those cool nights.
Without the fan going above!
Another Fall porch . . . that has been created 10 times.
Cannot believe that we have lived in this house for 10 years already.
Don’t know if it will be 10 more as we really want a smaller place . . .
Oh, I mean cozy!!…It’s all about cozy!!!
After I finished decorating and photographing the porch, I cozied up to a glass of wine
to relax and enjoy the view.
And speaking of cozy, days of crispness in the air, of views of mums and pumpkins,
