My Autumn Porch

If I’d been really on the ball, these pictures would have been blogged weeks ago.  But it’s no secret that I’d not really a blog-in-the-moment kind of girl, so, the pictures are “late.”

But it’s still autumn, right?

I’m happy to report that all the decor on my porch totaled under $30.  That’s for 3 medium mums and 22 various sized pumpkins (thank you, Nashville Farmer’s Market), the brass lantern, the ghost luminary, and the two Pottery Barn candlesticks (clearance a couple years ago).  Oh yeah, and the wreath on the door was from my wedding four years ago.

There is one more touch that I have yet to get a decent photo of, and that is of the 20 lit-up jack-o-lanterns that are edging the front landscaping.  Maybe on Halloween night, when we host our party….

Can I just tell you how proud I am of my fall nesting this year?  I’m bound determined to follow up this post with pictures of the touches I’ve added indoors.  Hold me to it, people! =)

Very welcoming. I love that ghost luminary. I hope you'll get a good photo of it lit.

Love your decorations (and a very attractive fall polish color on your toes to boot! :-)). I may steal a few ideas...

Love how you decorated your porch; it's not often you see small porches decorated like this one. Would love to see you enter it in our autumn porch decorating contest at

How pretty! I wish I was more of a decorator. We still have bare walls, and we've lived here for almost 3 years. Maybe I need you for inspiration.
