Front Porch Pictures and More

Well, I told you all awhile back that once I got done decorating my front porch then I would post pics.  So,  I finally finished it this weekend and here are a couple pictures.  I also included a picture of our scarecrow.  Cameron had fun helping me get him ready for Fall.  Be sure to check out my chicken coup.  I still would like to cut some boards off the bottom or the top, but still haven’t done it yet.  So, it stays like this for now.




Talking about Fall….. I went to the pumpkin patch this weekend and here are a few pictures from our trip.

It was super windy so excuse my messy hair.  Don’t you just love all the colors of Fall.  I know that I do.

I also picked up some gourds at another farm market.  I was so happy to see that they had these little gourds.  I thought they would make a great little garland for in my window or around my chandelier.  The larger gourds I plan on using on my front door next year.  I really want to find myself some long handled dipper gourds, but if I can’t then I will just attempt growing them next year.


I already have these gourds up and hanging and hopefully they will be dry soon.  Here they are drying.  I just have to laugh every time I look at them.  My neighbors are probably thinking I am a bit strange since I have my gourds hanging and that I have really dirty towels always out drying.  Guess they just don’t know prim ~ right?!? 



I asked my hubby to fix something up so I could hang my gourds and he takes this trellis that was in the flowerbed, lays it across the deck and puts a big cement stone on it.  Gotta love that it looks so tacky, but I guess it works.  lol.


Well, that is it for today’s post.  I have some makeovers to share with you so stay tuned for those on my next post.  If you are lucky then I might post again later this week.  Stay tuned!!

Until Next Time ~ Blessings, Lisa
