Let's see your fall decorations since it's FINALLY getting cooler

Marlene KindredOctober 11, 2010

I've been putzing around in the yard today...even though it is 80 degrees putting up fall decor and planting plants. October makes my mind shift into fall thinking even when it's warm, so I thought I would take some pictures and post them. Let's see what you've been up to as well!!

DH took the front door down over the weekend and refinished it! It needed a facelift badly!

Gorgeous, Marlene! I was just logging on to post some porch pictures when I saw your post. Looks like the perfect spot for them!

You ladies both did awesome jobs on your porches! I can't wait for next year when I can decorate my house (that hopefully will be in fixed on the outside by then).

Marlene, your door looks great, DH did a wonderful job, it looks new! Your decor looks so nice & inviting! Thanks for the pics. Arlene yours looks great too, can't tell which leaves are real in pic with leaves & berries, nice & looks like I'd want to sit down with some ice tea on that loveseat. Owl looks so cute with the other things & antiques add a nice touch. The fern is a surprise for fall & the green adds interesting touch to the scene! i like it!! Thanks! Jan

Lovely! I just threw a few mums on my steps. My other planters haven't died yet which is outrageous here in NH.
I love your red and white totem.

Marlene, everything is lovely. I love how you mixed the red in with everything, it really adds a lot. That enamel top table looks so inviting. Great job. Arlene, I really like your rustic fall decor also. The nail keg and wooden crate are wonderful. Here are some pix of my outdoor fall, I really need to be adding Halloween decorations to these in the next few days.

Glad to see your decorations Frou! Love the way you used the birdbaths for the gourds! And your scarecrow is very cheerful and inviting too!

Beautiful, thanks all for sharing those.

I have a scarecrow, but he definitely looks lonely compared to these photos. Need to get busy.....

Thought I'd share my fall decor......I painted the wood ones several years ago now. My cement fishing boy got done up for the season also and of course my orange flamingo got a witches hat to help set the fall mood. Some very pretty pics have been posted. I enjoy seeing everyone elses pics. I think fall is my favorite holiday to decorate.

That vulture with the scarecrow is adorable. And that flamingo is too funny. Your whole yard is adorable and neat and tidy, just the way I like them.

Well, I'm inspired now. I've just been moping around the garden looking for anything that was blooming. This just makes me want to get out there and harvest those multicolored gourds and all those pumpkins - oh yeah, I don't have any. Well-guess I'll just have to go shopping! See ya! Cheryl
