Fall bench

I just couldn't take it anymore.  I had to do some Fall decorating before me move.  Normally I would have started on the inside by now but I will have to wait until we get settled into the new home.  Since I haven't started packing yet I thought that I would at least decorate my bench on the front porch.





 I thought I would keep it simple and not decorate around the bench since I will be moving this soon anyway.  We will be having the appraisal done on our current home Monday so that night I can start packing.  I will be lucky to get all my breakables packed and moved over to the new house before we have movers come.  I like to move my own items that are breakable as I have had things broken before.  This will be a chore as I have a lot more breakables since we moved here.

    1. Thank you. I found the throw on Ebay a few years ago. I think it is called Buchanan Antique Tartan. Mine is small just made for your lap.

    The whole bench is so welcoming, lovely addition to your front porch!!

    Wishing you luck when you start packing, I know it can be a pain in the neck.

    1. Thank you Karren. I started packing Monday night. I thought that I could at least get one room packed a night but that isn't happening. I have way too much stuff that needs to be wrapped carefully and that takes a lot of time.

  13. Hi Jody,
    I am visiting from Share Your Cup Thursday. Your fall inspired bench looks so inviting. It looks like a delightful place to curl up with a good book and a cup of hot cider. I see that you have always wanted to live in the south. I live on the MS Gulf Coast. Can't get any more south than that in MS! My husband once lived in Colorado while his dad was stationed there. I have always wanted to visit. Looks like a beautiful state. I am so glad to have found you and am a new follower. Please stop by Still Woods Farmhouse when you get a chance. I am sharing a yummy fall inspired muffin that would taste absolutely delicious on your bench!
    Blessings from Lynda at Still Woods Farmhouse

    1. Thank you Lynda. I just checked out your muffins and they look delicious. I love Colorado but I am not a snow lover unless I can just stay home. I love the South with the humidity and warmth. I started following your blog too. I love the pumpkin that you did for the door. I have always wanted to cut some of my pumpkins in half. I just might have to try it. Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Thank you Carol. I am hoping this one will go without a hitch. I plan on having everything packed way before the move date since we are moving 8 days after we close.

    1. Thank you Barbara. I am going to have a ton of boxes and loose items that I will have to move myself. I don't want to pack the boxes too heavy for me to lift so I am using more boxes than normal.

  16. Good luck on your move! I LOVE your pretty vignette on the bench! Maybe it is because I'm half Scottish-but I adore anything plaid!

    1. Thank you. I can't keep this on my porch either as it would blow away. I can only leave heavy items on the porch. I hope I will have better luck at my new house with decorating outside.
