Fallish Front Porch

I have been so busy working on the basement bathroom I didn't get my front porch ready to welcome guests like I usually do. I finally put out a few things to make it look festive.

Placed some pumpkins on the black buffet. This will be last time I get to decorate it as I sold it this weekend. I will miss it but it couldn't winter on the porch.

Put a few fall decorations in the cabinet.

Some pumpkins and fall gourds on the lower shelf.

Used some of my rooster plates on the upper shelves.

Isn't this little scarecrow girl cute. She is a oil painting I found at an antique store. I enjoy hand painted pictures on canvas and I appreciate the time and talent someone had to paint it. She is so happy looking she make me smile each time I see her.

A few sparkly pumpkins on a velvet place mat I purchased at Target a couple of years ago.

I love the variation in color on this little fellow.

A trio of pumpkins and some fall flower brighten up the black buffet and window box.

A duck decoy nests among some grape vines on an old red trunk.
I wrapped my wicker in fall fabric but I can't show you because I left my camera at the lake house. Don't know how I am going to blog without it. Maybe I need two cameras. Just have to convince the hubby.
Fall hugs to all you.

I like the scarecrow girl painting and wouldn't the artist luv knowing that it's still being displayed? Hope your beautiful black buffet is going to a good home. It looks amazing with the orange pumpkins on top of it.

Your house seems so warm and inviting - bet you put fragrances out too! I can just smell the vanilla or cinnamon.

Stella ~ Oh, all your autumn decorations are wonderful! So cheery and colorful. Makes me anxious to get some of my own done. And I looked at your previous post and the basement bathroom is so stunning. And huge! Love it and all your clever ideas for decorating it. Really great.

Hi Stella. I saw a comment of yours on Chatty Crone and followed you here. So enjoyed (and agreed) with that comment. Your latest post put me in a lovely Halloween mood. We're full-time RVers, so I don't decorate much at all -- or garden -- but the way I figure, somebody has to be put here just to enjoy everybody else's talents. I enjoyed yours! Thanks for sharing.
