Happy Fall you guys!!! This is my favorite time of the year. From September 1st until January 1st I am in my happy place. I love the cooler weather, the beautiful leaves, comfort food, cozy candle smells, scarves for daysss, I mean honestly it's just the best. And then January 1st rolls around and I'm ready for spring. :p
One of the things I was most excited about this year was decorating for the holidays. I haven't had a front porch in a couple of years so fall couldn't get here quick enough. Even though I wanted to go totally crazy decorating, we are still in the middle of major renovations (the kitchen is a wreck. Read about our vision for that here) so I can't go as crazy as I hoped. Justin works 13 hour days, I am taking 5 classes at my university, and we are just plain busy. It's hard to fit it all in. So I stayed simple and low key for porch decorating this year, but I love how it turned out.
We did a couple of updates to the porch, here's a quick before picture.
We changed out the hardware on the door, got rid of the screen and added a new light fixture. It isn't a huge change, but it feels more us now. Here are the afters. Introducing our cute little fall front porch!
How cute is this pillow that has our house number on it? I found it at my new favorite place, Tuesday Morning and knew it had to be ours!
I thought about sweeping off the porch for this photo shoot but then I realized it looked more authentic and autumn like this way. Yeah we'll go with that. :p
Hudson would like to thank you all for stopping by our front porch tour today and says that you can come back anytime. As long as you bring milk bones and behind the ear scratches. ;)
Tandem bikes, antique wagons, hunter boots, and pumpkins, I mean how can you go wrong with that combo? What do you guys think? Not bad for a teenie front porch right? I'm kind of crazy about it! Thank you for looking! Pop back over tomorrow when I will be sharing a full landscape before and after. Not as much fun as porch decorating, but still nice to see the little makeover.
Happy Tuesday! Xoxo
