Autumn decorations

party_music50October 24, 2013

It's turned to autumn here... most of the leaves are down from the trees. No frost yet, but we got more than 1" of snow this morning! Some autumn pics:

My dahlias and gladiolas and a few other things are pumping out blooms like crazy, and I always try to have fresh bouquets out. I made the table runner and the basket and mat, of course! :p

I checked out a new Dollar Tree here today and for some reason I could NOT resist this rat! I have no idea why, but he's now on my front door to greet the trick-or-treaters. I also have a tree statue I put out on Halloween... it jiggles and lights up and laughs heartily when touched and everyone loves it. Here's my RAT!

A quick peek at part of my porch... the other side has the two vine trees, lots of small pumpkins, and big pots of blooming plants.

And my favorite autumn decoration of all.... the self-arranging kind. lol!

Ohhh...your flowers are so pretty on your table, party ... & of course, I love your basket & placemat (runner, too) ... everything on your porch is gorgeous...that white wicker & the cushions color & that big basket of pumpkins!

I got my vine tree up & decorated ... no pics yet ... always think of you & your basketweaving skills! Kitties are cute. Happy Fall to you ... but I don't like your rat! LOL! Ewwwwww.... good for trick n' treaters, tho! ;-) Jeanne S.

Love your flowers Party...lucky that you can still
have fresh ones. The runner and placemat sets them off nicely.
Your porch looks just lovely with the pumpkins, flowers and wicker...very inviting. Makes you hate when the cold weather prevents you from sitting out there.
I agree with Jeanne...I DON'T like your Rat!!...double
ewww >> ewww ! lol

Very pretty arrangement of your flower Party,
things have bloomed longer here too this year.
Your front porch looks so pretty, perfect for fall,
I don't like the rat either, [he's a great for Halloween tho]
but I do like the cats, what are their names?

Party, wonderful fall decor! Love your flowers and veggie basket on that beautiful fall runner. Yikes, you have snow! We have the fog and it's horrible to drive in. That's a part of fall I never enjoy.

Your rat on the wreath is great. I would love to see your tree statue. Sounds like the perfect greeter for Halloween. I always enjoy seeing your porch. So pretty with pumpkins, leaf vine, flowers. Your wicker set is striking amoungst all the fall decor. I just bought a wicker set like that this summer.

The self-arranging kind of fall decor your sharing is superb!!! We have no pets right now so I always enjoy seeing others. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful Halloween.

Please frame the picture of your beautiful natural decoration - those kitties! They fit right in, don't they? Pink
