A Tiny Bit of Fall Color for the Porch

I have been so busy I havn't had time for too much.  However, I did find some pretty Mums and so I thought it was time to do a little bit of something to spruce up the front porch.  It is still in the 100's here, so no pretty flowers, however a few faux ones will have so do in the meantime.  At least from the street it looks a little more like fall.


I am linking to Inspiration Friday @ Southern In My Heart.   Be sure to go visit her and see all the wonderful things that everyone has created to inspire you.

  2. Marty, your porch looks very fall-like. Very nice.

    Your new haircut inspired me and I got mine all cut off this afternoon. It feels SO MUCH BETTER!

    Have a great weekend! La

  3. I like the new picture! It doesn't even feel like fall here in Illinois, it is in the 90's this week! Your porch is perfect for decorating...I wish mine had more space.

  5. This is certainly inspiring! I need to clean the front porch now. I love your fall color on the porch, especially the flowers in between the rockers. It looks great!

  6. Love the porch -- your porch always looks so tidy and pulled-together, so pretty. Mine always has leaves and spider webs on it!

    Thanks ... your porch can now inspire ME.

  7. OH I forgot to say -- you look SMASHING in your makeover pictures. I love the hair, the makeup -- you look absolutely wonderful and I would never, ever guess you were 70. Not ever. I think you look younger than in the last profile pic!

    You are a stunning woman, and a very sweet one, too . . . and we bloggers just love you!

    (I have to admit when I saw the new picture I thought some cheeky brunette had hijacked your blog!)

  10. Hi Marty,
    Sorry not to have been by in a while. I love your use of the sunflowers to brighten your porch...I think they brighten life where ever they go. A bit like you, I'd say.
    Have a wonderful weekend!
    Warmest Hugs,
    Sandi @ Bearly Sane
    P.S. Love your new photo...you look gorgeous!

  11. I think your porch looks great! I know what you mean about the weather, it still feels like summer here too. I'm doing the same thing - using faux flowers and decor for awhile. Thanks for leaving a comment about my tablescape. Loved having you dro pby again. Have a wonderful weekend! Sandi

  12. Marty it is still in the nineties here, but cooling down this weekend. I am ready for my cooler season flowers, too. Your porch looks great. 100's yuck!

  13. I understand flowers and the heat! My new wreath I just made and hung on my door started to melt in the heat. The hot glue I used to adhere the leaves and ghost softened up enough for the items so start slipping and hanging in odd ways. lol I have had to wire everything to the wreath!

  14. Marty,
    You have such a pretty, organized and well manicured porch! I love all the fall touches.
    I am a huge fan of gorgeous wreaths, and your's is just that!
    I could wile away the hours on one of your rocking chairs... if only it wasn't 100 degrees!

  15. oh I'm so glad it's cooler here now. Although I live in Canada, it still reaches over 100 on a regular basis during the summer. I do think it cools down a lot sooner though =) Your porch is beautiful. I am looking forward to repainting my front door and sprucing up my porch, just in time for fall and Halloween!

  17. It may still be 100 degrees but your porch definitely says fall is here! I bet just looking at it makes you feel cooler.

  32. Things are looking great! I like your wreath, fall arrangement on your table, and your cute pumpkin. It must be hard to decorate for fall when it is 100 degrees. It's been in the 90's here and I think we are all ready for cooler temperatures.

  33. Marty, I love your porch for fall! I also love that urn by the rocker and remember when you did it. It was inspiring to me!

  37. Gorgeous wreath! Your porch looks ready for fall. I know I'm ready but the temps just don't want to cooperate. I don't ever remember such a hot September!
