Our back yard says it's still summer, but my back porch says otherwise....lol!
The plants around the back porch are lush and green, but my mantel is just busting out with fall colors
It's been to hot to have the doors open in the sun room, but today I have them wide open to let some of the outdoors inside
I paid a visit to the nursery and picked up some gorgeous pumpkins for my fall mantel
I love all character that real pumpkins have.....
My center pumpkin looks different on each side
I also picked up some baby boo pumpkins at the nursery to use on the coffee table.
Since the evenings are cool here in Eastern New Mexico, I have a lite quilt on each settee to use when we sit out here tonight.
This old quilt was just a few dollars at a yard sale....you can see how frayed it is around the edges. The quilts and pillows go back into the sunroom each evening when we're done with them.
The quilt I have on the other settee is very special to me
This quilt was made by my great great grandmother. I brought it out for the pic, but it will go back inside with me when I'm done! I have a quilt similar to the one on the other settee that will replace it.
I am not sure how old the scare crow is that you see hiding over in the corner of the back porch.
He belonged to my parents and I've had him over 10 years,
After all these years, he really needs a new outfit!
Yep, I really need to find my scare crow some new clothes.....lol!
Soon the back porch will be covered with beautiful fall leaves.......
I plan to add a few Halloween pieces to the existing mantel decor
In fact, you may have noticed that I've already added a Haunted Farmhouse sign
This year is going by so fast......soon it will be time to decorate the porch for Christmas
But for now......I'll just enjoy today!
