Welcome To Our Home

We love to decorate for the seasons. The neighbors love to see what is going up next. lol We are at the very entrance to our neighborhood and the first house they see when they enter. Hubby was busy replacing the summer flowers with Mums and putting out the Fall decorations.
Everything looks so bare when we start the changeover. He's digging a hole for the new Mums. He loves getting out and playing in the dirt, I mean planting in the dirt.

The Fall door decorations.


A Fall flag with a metal pumpkin hanging on a little hook with a Welcome sign from Cracker Barrel. Oh look, there's one of the Mums he just planted.


Our temperatures are very mild till Jan. so we should enjoy the Mums for several months.




Hubby stopped and asked neighbor that had corn if they wanted all their corn stalks. They were more than happy to get rid of a few, so behind the little scarecrow they went.


A Fall arrangement at the front door.

A tiered pumpkin between the garage doors. He's lighted for the nighttime.



I found the rocking chair covers at Cracker Barrel and thought they were so cute.


These little guys I painted years ago. Whoops, I should have washed the stand they are on. Excuse me, I'll be right back.



A pumpkin welcome mat awaits your visit. Come on in and sip some cider and have a piece of pumpkin pie. We'll get to know each other a little better.

I'll be taking a little blogging break. When I get back we'll wander around on the inside, ok?
Till then take care!

Hello Rose, Everything looks great , you all did such a fantastic job, I especially love your wreath and the garland over the door. Your home is so beautiful.

I haven't even started outside , we are hoping to go looking for some gourds and larger pumpkins tomorrow.
I love mums, but dh doesn't like them anymore than he does roses,he says they don't last long enough for him. I think he just might not want to plant anything else this season, lol. But we will probably get a few to set on our steps anyhow lol
Have a wonderful and safe trip!, I will be praying for you.
Hugs,
Sue

It was nice to see how you and your husband work together to decorate the outside of your home for the fall season. I'm sure your neighbors all enjoy it too.
It all looks great. I really like the tiered pumpkins by the garage doors.
Enjoy your break and I look forward to seeing the inside when you get back.

I would love to sit down and have a spot of cider with you! Your place looks so lovely. My husband likes to play in the dirt, too! Our mums come back every year and are doing well right now - some even survive being stomped on during the jack-hammering of the old patio.

Oh I just love all your Fall Decor. Everything looks so warm and inviting. I had to look twice at your rubbermaid tubs. It looked just like our garage when we brought down all the Fall tubs. LOL I worked out of the garage. I have one more to empty and then done. Going to post it soon. Very busy at the moment, painting for the shoppe and holidays.

Hope all is well, see you again soon.
hugs, Celestina Marie

The first question many people have about links london one way links is why are they so important.If you links of london compared two websites that had exactly the links jewellery same content but one of them had one hundred one way links versus none on the other site links of london uk you would see that the site with one way links had a much better cheap links of london ranking with each search engine. links of london bracelet The primary reason for this is there is no reason for one site links of london charms to link to another without a reciprocating link other than that links of london watches site determines that the website is an authority on it's given niche links of london rings A one way link is when a website links to another site without links of london necklaces asking for a reciprocal link back.
