18 Sep Fall and the Front Door
Fall is here technically, though in Texas, that means we’ve made it down to about 80 degrees everyday. Which is fine by me as I loathe cold weather! Nevertheless, there is a freshness Fall brings that I love. It’s almost like I forget every year, and then it comes – the smell of the air, the hint of crispness, the dusting off of the crockpot, the feel of a warm coffee cup in cool air – and I remember how special this season feels.
It has been raining and cool, ahem cool-er, so I am getting in the mood. I’ve started to ponder buying pumpkins and gourds and shuffling four kids all over town to find the best prices on them. Ha! I am getting excited, and after searching for inspiration, I thought I would share them with you.
Love the white pumpkins here against the orange mums, and the pumpkin-esque lanterns. I bet those look pretty at night!
I really like how the cabbage plant and pumpkins look together.
Simple and pretty wreaths.
The vine pumpkins mixed in with the real ones looks nice, and I like the big lanterns with candles, too. The rather large black birds throw me off a little. They are a little menacing, yes?
I had to include a monogrammed pumpkin.
This is a pretty design. I’m really liking the pumpkin arrangements mixed with plants!
I see these old wooden ladders at estate sales all the time and wonder what I would do with them. This is a cute use for it!
If you have a narrow entrance to your home, the wheat on either side of the door is a terrific idea to bring in some decor!
I like the use of hay here, but I might have left out the scarecrow.
What I am loving most of all after my inspiration hunt are pumpkin topiaries!
This pic is my fav.
