Simple Fall Front Porch

Only 22 days until Thanksgiving and 53 days until Christmas!

Have  you started your Christmas shopping yet or am I the only slow one? Maybe you are already done?! I have started... but just barely :o)

I'm not quite in the Christmas spirit yet... I'm still getting used to fall! I mentioned the other day that I didn't decorate for Halloween and how disappointed I am with myself for that... I had new Halloween goodies and everything.

Oh well... no sense beating that dead horse any longer... I decided to go ahead and decorate my front porch a little bit for fall... better late than never right? This will be good through Thanksgiving.

Fall decorated front porch

My garage is such a mess I can't get to my decorations but I did manage to find a couple of things to create a very simple fall front porch.

I pulled out a pretty fall colored afghan that my grandma made and draped it over my $5 black yard sale bench.

I made the rake display several years ago. It will hang  up but I decided to just prop it up on the bench instead.

This is not my real mailbox but just a decorative one that I filled with some fall flower picks.

I put some branches from my twisted filbert bush in the boots along with a leaf branch.

And wrote a quote on my chalkboard.

"Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower"...

I added a couple of pumpkins... the leaves scattered around are from Mother Nature :o)

And that's it! I actually really like the simple look of it all, what do you think?

Did you decorate for fall?
