Fall Porch

 For Day 6 I decided to decorate our front porch. It was a beautiful cool day and I did enjoy being outside. I actually did the decorating in the morning before I worked our flower garden that I posted a few days ago.
 The only things I purchased was the wreath and garland. I already had all the other items.
 This is one of the first times I have decorated the porch since my parents passed away.
 I guess I just have not felt like it but since I have joined the 31 dayers I decided I would work on the porch.
 This is what it looked like before I started just grapevine trees and a wreath.
 Pretty drap but honestly, this is how I have felt for the last months and when you are in grief it is difficult to be creative.
 This is the other side. For summer I always add a few chairs.
 This is my pile it items to choose from. I ended up not using the scarecrow in the front but I used almost everything else.
 I am happy with the results and I have had many people notice the porch so I thing it was worth digging my things out. I adore fall and this was a great way to make me smile. When I drove up yesterday I was so pleased that it was done!
Day one of 31 days of fall inspiration  this is the link if you want to start from my day one post!
