Fall Porch

Hello Dear Readers!

I know it is not quite Fall yet; however, I purchased Fall mums quite early.

As soon as my favorite garden center, Dales Greenhouse in Sanford, N.C., brought out

their mums, I was there lickity split as I was participating in a Fall Tour hosted

by the lovely Angie of Postcards From the Ridge.

I was to present my Fall Porch on Friday; however, I was a bit concerned that I would not

be able to participate much if I lost power due to the storm; therefore, 

I had to bow out at the last minute.

So here I am today, presenting my Fall Porch.

The first decorated porch of the Berry Patch House.

Fall Reminiscing, Florence, and a Winner

Hello Dear Readers!

I have been busy with hurricane prep, glued to the Weather Channel and believe it or not,

been making my front porch of the Berry Patch House pretty for Fall,

just to take it all down and put it all safely away.

I have to say that it is my favorite of all Fall porches that I have done.

Time willing, in between hurricane preparations,

I hope to have it posted on Friday….so stay tuned.

In the meantime I will give you a sneak peek of it at the end of the post.

Today it is all about Fall Reminiscing, Florence, and a winner.

My Fall Home Tour

Fall is definitely creeping in a bit in my part of the country.

We have cooler temps . . . well, cooler to me means it is not in the 90’s . . .

and I can see some slight changes in the color of the leaves on some trees.

That being said, it is time for my Fall Home Tour AND A GIVEAWAY!!!

So grab a seat and your favorite beverage and come along!

Fall Porch Gone “Plum Crazy”

I have really been attracted to the beautiful Berry colors this Fall.

The shades of purple and plum have been seen throughout the house for Fall this year.

It was fitting that I go “plum crazy” on the porch too.

Fall Ideas Tour and Flowers for Staging

Hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend.

We spent the weekend working on the house . . . inside and out.

Today the house is being photographed for real estate purposes.

I will share them with you as soon as they are available.

Today I present a Fall Ideas Tour and flowers for staging.

The other day I took a trip to Trader Joe’s

and picked up many bunches of flowers in the purple and plum colors.

I also lucked out and got 2 dozen white roses at Target for $7.50!  A super sale!

Here is what I originally did with the white roses.

Fall Porch Inspiration and a New Favorite

While I sit on my front porch thinking about how blessed I am

to be able to enjoy the mild weather,

I am thinking ahead on how I would like to decorate my porch for Fall this year.

I definitely need to keep it simple, yet festive and inviting this year.

So today, I thought I would just present some Fall Porch inspiration

and a new favorite of mine.

Fall Home Tour

As I start to gather ideas about how I am going to decorate my home

for Christmas, I wander about the house enjoying the Fall decor that I created this year.

For me, it is always sad to put away decor of the previous season,

however, exciting to bring out the decorations for the Season of Joy.

Before I put the Fall decor away, I decided to do a recap of my home for Fall this year.

It all started with the front porch.

Fall on the Back Porch

Dressing the back porch for Fall was on the agenda this past weekend.

Because you can see the upper back porch from most of the rooms in the main living area,

I needed to coordinate the colors.

I recently dressed the dining room in traditional Fall colors, which you can see HERE

and decided to go with those same colors, including the blues.

Fall Wreaths and Fall Porch Decor

I am so happy to be a part of the Fall Ideas Tour again this year,

where I am presenting my Fall Wreaths and Fall Porch Decor.

Today, is actually the day for Fall Wreaths, but I thought I may as well show you

the porch in which they are adorning.

My Fall wreath is a bit of a departure from years past.

I concentrated mainly on the colors that I planned to use on the porch

and the harvest of my summer hydrangeas that I have dried.

Hello everyone!

Hope you had a great Labor Day Holiday Weekend.

I am still recuperating from my hand surgery. It gets better every day.

I can now type slowly with my right hand.

Just a short post today to tell you about my little magazine feature
