Autumn has arrived at my front porch!

I have officially jumped on the autumn bandwagon! I have let go of summer and immersed myself in the joys of fall, and my posts this week will reflect that!

Not long ago, I posted some pics of my porch decorations from last year. I promised I would post when I added to it.

Here is my long, skinny porch. It's hard to know what to do with it. I can't put too much out, or we can't walk through here! This view is from the driveway.
Here is a straight on view of my red bench. I moved the star from next to the door to the window. It is almost a perfect match for the red bench!
Here is the bench up close. This was a great summer find! It cost me about $40-45. I had geraniums in a white basket and a birdhouse on it for summer. The birdhouse is sitting under the bench for now.
I still love this angel that I found at Joanne Fabrics for $17. She and the bench were featured in an earlier summer post.
I just love these white pumpkins! It coordinates really well with the angel. I love the contrast between the pumpkin and the deep red bench.
Here is a fall arrangment I made last weekend. I found the basket, the gourd, and the little pumpkin, and also the styrofoam for inside the basket and the moss at Dollar Tree for $1.00 each. I found three bundles of the flowers for a buck each at Meijer! Now I have a brand new arrangement for only $8 total!
The scarecrow is a repeat of last year, but with a new pumpkin and no mums this year. The trees are different as I bought them around Christmas last year.
And last but not least is my old chair with fall flowers. I still love it as much as I did last fall!

My son and I joined friends at a state park this weekend. I took bunches of pictures! I swear, I live in a most beautiful area and I can't wait to show it to you this week! Blue Monday comes first, then you'll see all the fall glory.

Stay tuned, same bat blog, same bat channel!
