Fall Porch

Up at the cottage we are getting ready for winter, we did one last round of fall clean up putting away the pots and furniture. Nothing like doing yard work when the temperatures are in the 30's, burrrr. Out east my blogging partner daughter Andrea is ready for the big storm scheduled to hit NYC later today. She is stocked with food, water and other needed supplies. I know I'm more nervous about the storm than she is, just hoping everyone comes thru the storm safely.

I did a simpler fall porch display this year than I did last year, something I could use into November. Bird houses grouped together and a pinecone wreath that my Mom gave me. I think she has had that wreath since the 60's.  I loved my decorations from last year but won't have time to put it all away this time.


This was the display from last year, I love that witch!  To see the full post click here, porch from 2011.


I like to use bird houses for outdoor decorating.





I turned my summer hanging basket into a little fall display.




It was sad to put away the last remains of summer but fall and winter hold their own special charm.

Hoping all our friends and family come thru the storm safely.

Hi Laura- I am back from my blogging break and love seeing all your Fall decorations. I went back and looked at last years porch, too. WHERE on Earth did you get that witch on the moon? I LOVE it! xo Diana

I feel all tucked in for the winter now. Love the bird houses, of course. I'm glued to The Weather Channel and was wondering how Andrea is. Thanks for the update.

What fun decorations. Fall does have it's own flavor and feel. I think we appreciate and cling to each day more than usual because they are heading towards the bleakest of the seasons.

Colorful and cute! Really like those bird houses, and I love that sweet yellow pumpkin!

I agree! Fall and winter do hold their own charms! I love your porch, the birdhouses are so cute grouped together. Last years was adorable, but I really love the simpler decor, and I think the pinecone wreath is lovely!

i just love these photos!!

You have a lovely Autumn porch. I understand the need to go simpler some years (and more years the older I get). Storing everything can be quite a chore! Hope you and your daughter made it through Hurricane Sandy safely.

Love the pumpkin wreath thing. and I remember last year's porch because of the lamp with a gourd on it. I thought it was a great idea then and think it's a great idea still.

I'm a bird house lover too! and I like the lattice grapevine wreath - never seen one like that before.

Hi Laura, Thanks so much for stopping by. It is so nice to hear that we have the children's hat thing in common. I remember one year when my Mom knitted over a hundred pairs of slippers and passed them out at the Veteran's Hospital. There is something wonderfully heartwarming about a gift, made one stitch at a time. I have a scarf that my daughter made me a few years ago, and when I wrap it around my neck in the winter, it is like a warm hug from her, even though she lives hundreds of miles away :)
Have a wonderful weekend.
Your blogging sister, Connie :)
