Very, very last minute outdoor autumn decor… like minutes!

I have 20 family members coming to Thanksgiving on Thursday!  And, I have jury duty on Tuesday! Yay me!  So I almost blew off my blog for the week…actually.. I saved this in my “Fall 2014″folder.  But maybe one person will be inspired!  Here is my milk can I bought last year at a tag sale. It most recently looked like this: DSC_0038

And, with a fresh coat of paint and some tall grassed cut back with kitchen scissors I came up with this last minute fall décor:

I am embarrassed (slightly) to admit I had a bale of hay from LAST year hiding out in the corner of the yard. I dragged it around to the back patio and added a few pumpkins from the front:

And, I tossed a few smaller pie pumpkins into a planter outside my kitchen window:

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!  BE INSPIRED!

Freshly Painted Front Door Celebrates Autumn

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

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!
