Pumpkins on the Porch

Today's forecast here is Colorado is sunny with high temp of 58.  Tomorrow is a different story.  High temp of 28 with snow.  So today I had to get the yard mowed and put the winterizer on before it snows tomorrow.  I also took the time to get the rest of my front porch decorated.  I didn't do it as elaborate as I normally do but doing the yard wore me out.  Plus I still have to do laundry.  So here it is.

I did just a small amount of decorating at the rocking chairs.  To tell you the truth I have been having a hard time getting my Fall decorating done.  Somehow I just haven't felt in the mood.

I would still like to decorate the side back porch and the back deck.  I was also planning to do something special by my pond.  Hopefully next weekend will be nice and I can get some of it done.

The Beginnings of Fall on the Front Porch

So on Sunday afternoon I got started decorating my front porch.  It was a balmy 40 degrees with a light mist when I got started.  Let's just say that I didn't get it all done.  I was able to get the urns and steps done before my fingers fell off. 

I have urns on each side of the steps.

View of the step area.

Here is the view from the driveway.

As of today I still haven't got the rest of the porch done.  It has been cold and rainy this week.  It was actually snowing earlier today.  At least I have my wreath on the door.  It isn't going to be much better this weekend.  I guess I will just have to brave the cold again so I can get it done this weekend.

Fall Entry

Welcome to my entry way.  I love this little ledge by the front door.  It is the perfect spot for decorating for the seasons.

Next is my shoe bench by the stairs. I like to decorate it but only for pictures.  This bench has all of my boots that I wear in the Fall and Winter so it isn't practical to have things on top.

And the last area I also added some  to Fall is the table by the front door and the hall tree.

Looks like Fall in the Dining Room

I am keeping it simple in the dining room this year.  I would love to go a little overboard but I just don't have the time. 

This year I am using gold, orange and cream/white.

I took away the grapes and added some Fall greenery to my rooster.  I also attached my Welcome Fall sign to by chalk board.

The centerpiece is just three candlesticks with some Fall greenery.

I haven't used my pumpkin salad plates for a while.  They look pretty good with the gold and white plates to complete my color scheme.

I put some of my metal pumpkins on the buffet. I added a few copper tones to go with the pumpkins.

Fall is in the air and the kitchen

I am sharing my Fall kitchen today.  I got it finished yesterday and now I am going to try and get the entry way, dining room and front porch done.  I probably won't get all of that done but I am hoping that I can at least get the entry and dining room completed.  For now let's see some pictures of the kitchen.  Let's start with the breakfast nook.

I just did a simple tablescape this year.

I started with my leave charges,orange plates, leaves and feathers salad plate and a leave bowl.  I also added plaid napkins and my new leave glasses that I got at Pier 1.

For the centerpiece I vamped up this wire hurricane that I got at Pier 1.  I added some more pumpkins and Fall greenery to it and a battery operated candle.

The rolling shelf unit and the stool I keep in the corner got some Fall touches also.


I like to decorate above the fridge since I don't use the cabinet above.  Do you see the little bird?

Since my kitchen island is small I just added an arrangement that I made.  I took an urn and added a metal pumpkin on top.  I put a battery operated candle inside and added some Fall flowers and greenery to complete the look.

I can't forget where this all started.  My corner sink area.

Now I am going to get busy with the rest of the decorating.  I am hoping to at least get the entry and the dining room done today.

The Beginnings of Fall in the Kitchen

This morning I got started with some Fall decorating in my kitchen.  I started with the corner behind my kitchen sink.  Please excuse the faucets as it is difficult to take pictures with them in the way.

 I added my Autumn Blessings sign to my berry wreath.

Just added a little bit of fall leaves and pumpkins to the bottom of the stand. I don't want to clutter up this corner too much.

Now I just need to get the rest of the kitchen done.  I am pushing to get it done a little bit at a time after work this week.  I still have lots of decorating to get done this weekend.
