Oh, and if you have been around for a bit – stick around, there is a quite the little surprise at the end!

Okay, so now to my outdoors.  Our happy home is making me really happy right now!  We have done a whole bunch of work out here this summer and sprucing it up for the fall just makes me giddy.

 

Outdoor-Decorating-for-Fall

 

The front beds are made from rocks found on the property that my husband built when we first moved in 14 years ago.  But, over the years, they have fallen down and needed to be rebuilt.  We also have a really long rock wall that runs the full depth of the property that was in really bad shape.  We really wanted to DIY both of these projects, but after 10 years of not accomplishing it, we cried uncle.  Then, we couldn’t even find someone who would do the project!  When we did, they were crazy talented.  It was  father and son team and they rebuilt all of these walls old school – with a hammer and chisel.

Could they be more gorgeous?  Sorry, I know I am overly gushing, but this project was something Hubby really wanted to done and I am just so happy that he loves it.  I had no expectations – so the whole project just delighted me.

We also ended up having to rework the flooring out here and switched to an opaque stain and we are very happy with.  This was all hubby’s work – he was like a dog on a bone, determined to get the porch back in shape.  We spent so long with this front area just looking so tired, it is so nice to see it looking so welcoming.

 

Classic-Fall-Outdoor-Decorating

 

When I decorated the inside of our home for fall, I was more subtle ( you can find our inside tour by clicking here).  When it comes to decorating the outside for fall, I don’t hold back.  I am traditional and I bring in mums and pumpkins and changing leaves.

 

Fall-Decorating-Ideas

 

Even though I go all out, I still keep it simple and uncomplicated.  Pulling all this together took me about 30 minutes including cleaning up summer decor.   For the front door, I hung a grapevine wreath, tucked in some leaves and drooped in a mini pumpkin.  I love the bright colors against the black door.

 

Simple-Fall-Wreath

 

We have two black rocking chairs on our porch and I love changing that area up for the seasons.  I filled a vintage crate with some mums and then brought in some pillows and a throw blanket.  Truthfully, these pillows are really not outdoor pillows, but they are under cover and I would rather see them be used then sit in a closet.

 

Fall-Porch-Rocking-Chairs

 

Nothing is simpler than just placing some pumpkins grouped together.  I love getting pumpkins as soon as they are out and then carving them once we get closer to Halloween.

  1. Hi Laura, your newly re-done stone wall is amazing! They did a beautiful job. I love your fall decor on your porch. The black door and rockers are classic and really show off the fall colours. Have a beautiful fall! Blessings, Pam

  2. Laura, I love your porch so much! I dream of one day having a front porch to sit out on and of course, decorate for the seasons!!! Thank you for joining in 🙂

  3. Beautiful, Laura! Your home and the stone walls are fairy tale pretty!! The porch is so charming! I love everything. Oh, I’m dying to know what you guys are building…a mammoth potting shed? lol!

  4. It’s all so beautiful! Can I tell you that I love that lamppost in your front yard? It just says, “Welcome home!” I hope you post your Christmas decor, too:)

  5. I love your porch. Something that caught my eye on your portawas the vintage crate with the word “Sealtest” on the side. My Dad who died in 1992 used to work for Sealtest and I would LOVE to purchase a crate like that. Would you know where I could purchase one? Thanks, Barb

  6. All of my pain had not been instantly washed away in letting go of Terry at all, in letting
    go, healing could begin. It is suited with handles and a set
    of caster wheels so it is possible to easily move it to several
    rooms.
    Options include three ounces of sanitized water with one tablespoon of cider vinegar (to help dissolve the oils),
    three ounces of witch hazel, 1. It’s another thing to say you wish
    to see all in the beautiful nature that the world must offer.
