Happy Fall!

Over the weekend, I added some fall touches to my front porch....I love the colors and textures of fall, pumpkin scented candles burning, the smell of homemade soups cooking on the stove, extra layers of clothing (maybe up north), and the smell of apple pie baking in oven... and pumpkins.  The weather has been less humid and we have had cooler nights here in South Carolina.

I made up this small basket of flowers for front door.... I love the pop of orange against my coastal blue door!

Added a coffee sack to my wine barrel with some pumpkins and a mum....

One of my favorite pillows for  October
I sit out on my front porch a lot since the nights have been cooler

My Wicked Witch Sign

I even added a metal basket with a splash of yellow and orange to my back gate.  Can you see the door/gate knocker to the left of gate?  I can also see some of my Confederate Jasmine trying to climb the picket fence......

Hope you are enjoying your Fall too!  Thanks for visiting!


  1. Very pretty Kelly! Love the color of your front door.

  2. Luv the pop of orange on the soothing blue door :-)
    Hare's to a wonderful Fall.

    Cheers, Gee

  3. Love the color of the door and the fall decorations! You are so fortunate to be living on the coast! I dream of that!

  4. Your door basket is beautiful against the color of the door. I love the sign!

    Happy Fall!

  5. Turquoise + orange = perfection!

    And I'm so envious of your white picket fence. Adorable!

  7. It is that wonderful time of year. Love the colors of autumn.

  8. Your basket is so cute and I love the blue color scheme you have. The rockers look just perfect dressed up for fall but with that coastal feeling. I'm happy you are having some cooler weather, so are we and I love it!


  9. You make me want to bring down all my Halloween items from the attic, but I promised my husband I would wait until October 1.

  10. It surely looks beautiful. Fall is such a wonderful time of the year. enjoy

  11. The orange flowers in that cute basket sure do pop on that gorgeous blue door! Everything looks lovely and inviting! Especially love the burlap bag in your decor! ...trying to get my front porch complete! I'm so running behind! ha! :)

  12. Awww how sweet is this? And a great sense of humor added too. Love the sweet little gate with the little basket and cute door knocker. I have some poor confederate jasmine still sitting in a pot out back waiting patiently to be planted somewhere. I can be such a procrastinator ;)

    I hope you get your swing next spring! I know you will !

  13. the witch is in!

  15. So very pretty! I'm so jealous, I live in SC too, but upstate near the mountains. I miss the ocean and being near the coast (originally from LI, NY). I love looking at your photos, and all the lovely blues :)

  17. Your front door is such a lovely color!! The orange does goes so well!! I'm now following you!! =) Deanna

  18. I have to comment on your backyard fence and gate.... nothing gets me more than a picket fence. Reminds me of the gate in front of a house we were looking at while in SC. This one had the ball and chain closure! How I wish this house wasn't the only great house on the street. If we bought it, the first thing we would have to do is ask the neighbor if we could paint the side of the house that was facing it. Peeling paint, for pitty sakes!! I still think of this house... too bad, though, that surrounding it was homes that weren't kept up.

    The front door color of your home is so welcoming. I sure would love to come over and sit on your front porch to sip some sweet tea with you!!!

  19. I love your front door color. Very welcoming. We have matching porch rockers, but mine are black,
