Welcome Fall!
A pretty wreath to greet my visitors.
Seasonal flowers.

I just love pumpkins.

Is your porch ready for Autumn? I'll be coming by to see. :)

Hi Stacy, your porch is so pretty dressed for fall. Katie is my favorite part though! Sunny does the same thing.

Shhh..your not suposed to notice I never get anything "done" with my stuff! Remember a while back you asked about how to get the look of layers without going too far? I commented I just put everything up then change it around. I'm going to have to repaint the whole wall now. I'm going to take it all down and start over around that tray!
Hugs,
Dawn

Great welcoming door Stacey. I'm not sure I will ever get my outside done this season. It has turned instantly freezing around here and I am not geared up with cold weather garb yet.

Just a little something from Judy said...

What a welcoming area you have at your front door. Makes me want to come right in and have coffee with you. I really like your front door, and the beautiful touches that you have everywhere.

Karen said...

Awwwwwww! That just makes your Door all the more inviting. Love seeing Katie standing there! What a great shot!
The wreath is gorgeous! And I am hooked on white pumpkins. I've even started painting a few of my artificial ones (I have to do that cause the real ones get stolen! BIG FROWN!) As soon as I was done posting my Doors - IN THEY CAME! :)
Thanks so much for joining in! Very fun.

Charlene said...

Hi there--what a lovely inviting entryway! And company to keep, to boot! We stay on the road too much to have a dog these days, but we claim half-ownership of my parent's dog--really makes us feel like we're home when she comes running to meet us.
