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

Hi Housepitality Design readers! I’m Kim and I blog at Savvy Southern Style.
 
While my friend Shirley is recuperating I thought I would share how I have decorated my small front porch

but I have a small stoop. That doesn’t mean I can’t dress it up.

Fall Porch

Because I was going to be away for approximately 2 weeks,

I decided not to decorate my front porch until I returned.

Well, I am back and the porch got a Fall facelift.

One of the first things that I did when we returned home

was to go to the Farmers’ Market. One of my favorite places.

Fabulous bHome Fall Porches and A Giveaway Winner

The other day I participated with many of my bHome friends and bloggers

in a Fall Inspiration Tour.

On that tour I presented one of my porches dressed for Fall.

Today I would like to share the porches that were on the tour

which will be sure to give you some great ideas to “fall-i-fy” your porch too.

First up is Debbie, from Debbie Doo’s

I love the fact that she painted her rockers a sunny yellow

which makes her front porch just pop with amazing color.

Oh that Laura of Duke Manor Farm (formerly Top This Top That)

and her amazing porch that I would love to emulate

with the gorgeous shades of blue. I just may need to paint my ceiling blue too!

Ann of On Sutton Place has such a warm and cozy porch.

Ann is a very talented lady and I must say that I own quite a few of her fabulous

pillows and other sewing projects.

She shows us how she displayed her mums in wonderful olive buckets.

Kim, from Savvy Southern Style recently added a pergola to her back deck

courtesy of Mr. Savvy. Of course soon after the pergola was in place,

Kim created a beautiful outdoor room and now it is beautifully dressed for Fall.
