It's fall y'all! Not exactly, but for those of us who live for autumn, this is the time of year we start getting ideas together since it's just a few weeks away. I never got around to doing a proper post of my outdoor displays last year and I didn't even get good pictures, but I wanted to show you some of what I had thrown together for the outside in 2012.
This is a scarecrow I purchased at a rummage sale for $2. I did repaint his face for a more modern primitive country look. I wanted to make him look spiffy so I gave him double layer flannel shirts, popped his collars and made him a burlap tie! My son had had enough of the purple plaid shirt so I happily took it off his hands used it on the scarecrow. I love incorporating purple in fall and Halloween decorating so it was perfect. Makes that autumn kale really pop! After I took the picture below I added more pumpkins and gourds around the front but unfortunately I didn't get any photos, but I'm sure you can imagine them!
Here is another corner of my porch. This was in mid-September. I think I eventually ended up rearranging this wagon and adding more pumpkin varieties later. I love filling the old rusty Radio Flyer with fall goodness!
Well that's all for now. I'm off to search for more fall inspiration!
