With one third of autumn over, I thought it was about time to share a bit of the decor around the house …. why rush things? I kept summer around until the very last day in an effort to deny that colder weather is on the way. While I love the warm colors of autumn, I do not love the barren trees ad frigid temps of winter and autumn is always a brief stepping stone to winter. Beware, I’m prepared to be cranky until spring …. 139 days from today … in case you didn’t know.
I rarely purchase Halloween decor,because my mother gives me some each year and how much do I need? However, this mummy pillow caught my eye in TJ Maxx and I couldn’t resist.
This is the rest of the village bench space … it’s what you’re looking at as you walk towards my back door. The only people that go to the front door are strangers and then it’s only when I have a HUGE Christmas tree right in front of the door forcing me to yell “go around to the back door” because they, obviously, can’t see a tree pushed up against the window and need direction. Yes, seasonal cranky has begun.
I love faux pumpkins, and faux pumpkins with glitter are even better! In my opinion, everything is better with glitter … sadly, Hubby disagrees.
This year’s Halloween gift from Mom is a sweet little witch. She’s actually quite glam with her jewelry and spots of turquoise.
That’s it for the back porch, we’ll take a look around inside the house next.
