Fall Front Porch

Posted by on Nov 3, 2013 in fall, front door, front porch | 17 comments

My favorite time of year is officially here.

Halloween is over…

…and now we’re on to Thanksgiving!

I began hosting the Thanksgiving dinner a few years ago.

With 3 kiddos, and a traveling hubby,

I really wanted to be HOME for Thanksgiving.

 I’m so thankful that all of the families obliged…

…and I’m so thankful to be preparing my home for the big day. 🙂

Happy Halloween Front Porch

If you are tall and you come to my house you might hit your head…

…I’m sorry.

I just got carried away.

I totally intended to have SIMPLE and HAPPY Halloween decorations.

My simple ended up looking painfully plain.

And then I was at Target this morning and there was a giant team of people unloading cart after cart of Halloween decorations.

And lined up under all the costumes were plastic pumpkin candy buckets.

The kind like I used to have.

And they were only $1!

So I bought 5…I had a plan for a Happy Halloween front porch!

Summer Front Porch

I like sweet tea.

Let me rephrase that. . .

. . . I LOVE sweet tea.

As a child, I went straight from milk to sweet tea.

My mama packed it in my thermos every day for lunch.

No Kool-aid for me as a child.

I would like to share something with you today. . .

Possibly the greatest thing since adhesive plate hangers.

Or, sliced bread.

You might not understand at first.

But, I think I will make a believer out of you.

It is. . . (drum roll)

Potted Boxwoods!

Let me show you why they are so fantastic.
