Autumn/Halloween Porch Decor


Happy Monday Everyone!


I'm very excited and happy today. First of all because early this morning I received a phone call from my sweet friend Julie Marie from Idyllhours. She wanted me to know that I had won her giveaway...Yay! What an awesome way to begin the week...I have followed her blog for a while now and have been fortunate enough to have gotten to know her and become friends, however, this was the first time I had the pleasure of speaking to her and hearing her sweet voice, what a special treat. Gotta love blogland...I have met so many wonderful people and I am truly thankful for all the friendships I have made...Thank you Julie Marie for yours...

Okay and now onto the other reason I'm excited and happy for today...

I'm thrilled to share with you my petite porch all dressed up for Autumn/Halloween.

I only added a few Halloween touches... I wanted the main focus to be Autumn...Plus, after the 31st all I have to do is pull a few things out and the decor will smoothly transition back into autumn in preparation for Thanksgiving.

These are faux pumpkins you can find at JoAnn's...I just painted a "C" and added some fall embellishments...Cute, huh?

Love, love, love birdhouses.



I glued these little skulls on some wire ties and added them to my wreath...Once Halloween is over it'll be a snap taking them off.

So there you have it...My petite porch.



Thank you dear and sweet friends for stopping by today.

I wish you all a fantabulous new week.

Blessings.




Hug and Kisses,

Your petite porch looks fabulous, my sweet friend! I love your copper pot and the stacked pumpkins look so cute, I love it all! Aren't mums just the sweetest Autumn flower? I am going to have to get some for next year, what a lovely way to see the growing season out. Btw, we have been enjoying some real California weather way up here in Manitoba, it has been in the 70' and 80's for several weeks!!! We are so blessed.
Hugs, Cindy

gorgeous!!! I love it all. This time of year is so much fun to decorate. I have a box of "havest" goods to replace the spooky stuff as soon as Halloween is over with. I am looking forward to it. Have a great week ana.

Hi Ana, I love your porch. Everything is so lovely and inviting. Congrats on your win. I just received my package yesterday from Traude in Austria. It's always a treat to receive mail on this side of the world. :) Best wishes, Tammy

Hello- I'm a new reader- Your porch is so pretty. I especially love the monogrammed pumpkin!

Heather said...

Hello Ana! Thank you for visiting my blog! I wanted to let you know how great your blog is!! I love the monogrammed pumpkin. How did you paint the monogram on? Also, that is so smart of you not to go to "Halloweeny" on your front porch. I am decorating my front porch too, and now I realize that the day after Halloween everything will need to come down. Great work!

Your petite porch looks wonderful! It was quite an ingenious idea to add the skulls to the wreath the way you did. Of course, I love your pumpkins stacked up & how you painted the "C". It's all so pretty!
