Pumpkin Picking 2014 and The Fall Porch

 Good Morning ! Yesterday was one of my favorite days of the year ! Pumpkin Picking Day ! We go to a strawberry farm where you pick a carload of pumpkins .. So fun !
 Last year I pinned this Welcome sign on Pinterest ..I went to Michaels last year to buy the letters but it was just too expensive to make. I read the blog post this year and she said she got the letters at Hobby Lobby .. So I went to Hobby Lobby and on sale the letters were only $13.00 to make the sign:)
 I used spray paint daughter actually painted them for me .. I used Rustoleum Metalic paint and primer in flat Soft Iron color .They look almost wrough iron like. It worked great and I used one of our old craft show display shelves to hot glue  them on . I love the way it turned out !

 On the porch ..there are mums in galvanized buckets and apple baskets ..gourds ,cornstalks.. pumpkins and vintage wood crates.

 We picked 108 pumpkins yesterday plus 4 garbage bags of gourds and have them displayed all around our flower beds..None of my favorite pink pumpkins were found by us yesterday ! Lots of blue and white ones ..
 My $3.00 estate sale rusty wheelbarrow is holding mums and pumpkins and gourds..

 My husband had a new post built for the front porch .. Before it was just a plain little post ..Now it is massive ..We need to find some skinny long house numbers for the front of it .

 I still have my sunflower wreath on the door and I am leaving it until the Halloween wreath goes up..

 This limelight hydrangea is such a pretty dark pink now ..Love it and can't wait until it gets bigger !

 I got those 2 galvanized buckets at the Goodwill last week $2.oo each ..The top one is sitting in a picnic hamper from the flea market. The scarecrows were made by me ..they were from my craft show days and were such big sellers !

Thanks so much for stopping by ! I would love for you to follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest ..all the links are in the sidebar !

Fall In The Foyer 2014

 Today I am sharing our foyer dressed up for Fall .. This chest and mirror are the only furniture in the foyer.
 I used a vintage scale topped with a vintage silver bowl with a sweater pumpkin in it..I made the book page pumpkin last year .. you can find the directions here..
 One of my favorite Fall cross stitch pieces is on display ..
 Love the pedestal bowl with some fall berries with a pumpkin inside ..
 I draped the stairs with burlap , fall leaf garlands and berries. Three big burlap bows top it off. I will be adding mini  white lights soon and then of course Halloween decorations to the railing.

 Burlap sunnflowers are added to the burlap bow on the coffee filter wreath..
 This wrought iron tiered planter holds faux sunflowers ..after this Saturday it will be holding pumpkins and gourds..A chalkboard made from a thrift store frame sits in the top basket.
 I found this hamper like basket at the Goodwill and placed it next to the chest with a rooster and fall floral pick..
I have been stitching away on Plum Street Samplers Cinnamon Stars .. Hope to get it finished and displayed soon !
Sunset last night ..
Zinnias still going strong in the garden ! Some of my plants are 6 feet tall !
