Freshly Painted Front Door Celebrates Autumn

front door fall 2013

One of my most viewed posts in 2013 is the evolution of my front door.  Here is my front door after we had the exterior of our home painted this summer: DSC_0157-001

And, here is my front door for the fall season! front door fall 2013

The wreath is a 5 minute makeover I posted HERE

Here’s my tired looking wicker chair. I really want to paint it, but I can’t think of a color I wouldn’t have to change every season? Any ideas? front fall porch 2

Originally I had just placed a pumpkin on top of each urn, but it looked slightly pathetic so I added a little moss. I only had the green moss, but it kinda gives it a pop of color. And, in Colorado we can have 70 degree weather into November.  porch urn 1
Hmmm…an orange door would be kinda cool for autumn! Do you think my {first} husband would notice? He’s a guy: not likely! Loving the porch!

Pumpkin Patch in a Jar

Here is a fun treat to make for teachers, neighbors or to use in your decorating!  It would look great in an office too! Sidenote: This post should be titled, “the pumpkin patch post that got away.”  I swear I posted this weeks ago!  I went to link it up to a party and 30 minutes later there is no post to be found. Spooky!  So here is a fun treat!  Hope it is still here tomorrow!  pumpkin patch 3

 

I took small mason jars and added the moss grass to the lid!  That’s it!  I have one sitting on my kitchen counter! I am not a candy corn girl (anymore), but I love the use of candy corn and pumpkins in decor!
