I have a confession to make.
Other than setting out a few pumpkins, I have never really decorated my front porch.
That’s a terrible thing for a blogger to say, isn’t it?
Well, that all changed this year (sort of).
A group of ladies came to see my house on a mini-“Parade of Homes” tour this week, and of course that sent me into a decorating tizzy.
Let’s just say I spent way too much money on pumpkins (that wouldn’t have happened if all my pumpkin plants hadn’t up and died on me this year).
The good thing is that my orange front door is right for the season!
I bought some new flowers for the one lonely flower pot. The ones I bought in the spring were all dead. I guess that happens when no one remembers to water them… (Yes, that’s a bike helmet in the background. My apologies.)
I made my own version of this now-famous sign from Ella Claire. I used different words (dessert, anyone??) and different fonts, but the idea came from her!
I nestled my sign, some grass clippings from my yard (the decorative kind…I really don’t let the lawn get that tall), and some pumpkins and gourds (the butternut squash and the acorn squash DID survive, despite their lack of water) along with some faux leaves in a cool old wooden box that I never know what to do with (usually it sits in a corner of my bedroom).
See what I mean about spending too much money on pumpkins?
Come on over for a visit! I might even make some donuts!
