Fall Decorations Outside

I just love Fall and everything that goes along with it.  Especially pumpkins!  Here are a few photos of our front yard and porch.
That scattering of leaves in front of the chairs was placed there yesterday afternoon for Gennifer's family pictures.  The gardener had come that afternoon, so the leaves were all cleaned up, but we ( as in Jake ) raked up a bag full for the photos.  By the time the end of the week rolls around, the entire yard is covered in leaves until December when all the trees are bare in front.  I do my front porch a little differently every year.  Last year, I used dried corn stalks.  I didn't grow corn in my garden this summer. I love the wagon load of pumpkins though.

Both of my mice are dressed for every occasion.
Pumpkins appear in the planters.
And just about everywhere in and around my house.  Pumpkins are my favorite fall decoration!!!  Could you tell?
 Happy Fall!!!

Oh Kris, I love your porch! I have a thing for porches. And the wagon is such a great idea. It looks great with all those pumpkins in it! Don't you just love fall? It's my favorite time of the year.

Your house always looks so festive & your mice are adorable! What a great place to do family photos!

I bought a wagon to do the same thing with, except mine is still sitting on my porch in the box needing assembly ;)

Happy Fall!!

Hi Kris, Once again I have to say I totally love your fall decorations-from the pumpkins scattered throughout your yard to the two wreaths on the cars. It all just screams Harvest. You are such a talented lady. I almost took some pumpkins from my daughter's garden yesterday to use in front; don't want to buy any because if I don't use them it is a waste of money.
Have a great week and thanks for sharing.
Hugs, Noreen
