Lots More Fall

Well, I think I have my fall decorating done......maybe.  I wanted to share my pictures of outside along with a couple of updated ones of inside. Again, lots of pics and not too many words. I just love this little primitive bench.  I got it awhile ago at the local antique store.  It's weathered and sits crooked.....just perfect.  This is on our front porch.

This is the broom corn that I planted.  All of it grew and I don't have a place for it all.  Next year, I won't plant so much!!

My bittersweet waiting patiently for me to harvest.  It has either been cold or windy or both cold and windy and I haven't made it out yet.  It's on the list for this week.  It's supposed to be in the mid 70"s. Yeah!!  Notice JoJo in the window.....her favorite spot in the afternoon.  Just enough sun to keep her warm and a window open so she doesn't get too hot.  What a  life!

Front porch.

Found the throw at GW last year for a buck or two. Perfect for outside!!

A couple of the inside pics I either missed last time or rearranged to make them better.

I found the little JOL ornies at JoAnn's. Love them.

Both pumpkins...above and below....came from JoAnn's too.  Don't they look so real??

I went to the local antique store yesterday and found these items.  The owner thinks this muffin pan may date back to the 1860's.  It is just the neatest thing. And the slaw cutter is so little and cute.   There was the neatest pie safe there also.  Painted grey, prim, just perfect.....except the price.  That's why you don't see a picture of it here.  I just loved it.  I will be perfect for someone, I'm sure. 

Lastly, I will leave you with a picture of Bubba (Tim) and I before his football game last week.  Notice the dreary day behind us.  It didn't get any better.  This week's game will be so much nicer.  Can't wait. 

That's about it for today.  I'm cleaning and rearranging the living room today.  Also trying to decide what type of curtains I would like to put up.  Here is a picture of the windows.  I have three sets of these.  I have cafe style now with a valence, but am thinking of tobacco cloth curtains.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by. 



  1. Great post Melissa. I love all your fall groupings. I'm very impressed that you grow your own Bittersweet. I just bought 3#'s off Ebay. It is very nice but once you strip the leaves off, you really don't have all that much.
    I love the idea of tobacco cloth curtains for your windows. I think they would look fabulous.
    Have a wonderful day.

  2. Melissa...........enjoyed seeing all of your Fall photos so much...........inside and outside.
    You sure do have a knack for decorating. Loved the pic of you and Bubba too!

  3. Everything looks wonderful, Melissa.

    I love the muffin pan. I have one a lot like it sitting on my baker's cabinet.
    I need to get outside and finish my porch. I cant seem to get used to these colder temps though. Right now I have my heat on 72 and freezing. Hope I remember to turn it down before Hubby get home from work!! LOL!!

    Have a wonderful day!!

  4. This post sure gets me in the mood for Fall!

    Love all your fall decorating. I wish I could put pumpkins and gourds outside, but everytime I do, the squirrels chew holes in them, eat the seeds and drag them all over the yard. GGGRRRRRR!!!!!!
