Now don't laugh at my simple Autumn decorating especially after looking at so many of yours...I've been waiting to put things out...My front porch/stoop gets such sun all afternoon and evening...The heat is so bad I DON'T keep my blinds open except in cool months or evenings....I think the heat could actually bake a pumpkin...So, since it has cooled off a bit, I picked these up this morning while at Walmart getting groceries....So, we'll see if the pumpkin and gourds make it til Halloween or perhaps Thanksgiving...I will be adding more each week....I plan to make another bench for the porch...I made one last year and it stayed out there for a while, and then ended up coming inside to sit in front of my window....I know!..I know!..I really need to work on my porch!..And maybe!...Just maybe!!...Tim MIGHT get my sign put up that Lisa made me instead of it sitting in the chair (since last year)....lol

~~hugs, Jen

I agree that Simple is great...cuz that's how my Fall decorating is going to be. I don't have that much of it to get carried away with anyway.
I like how you have this setting here Jen.

Beautiful Jen Sweetie...
Just so beautiful. I love it. Your gourds and pumpkin look so delightful and festive. Just what you needed. I love your sign too.

I just spruised up my front porch as well. Living here in the desert, I picked up some really nice Fall florals at the Dollar Store. The sun won't hurt them and it brings a little foliage to the porch. I love it. You could add a couple of little bunches to your watering can, and the sun won't kill them either. I'll be anxious to see how the sun does with your pumpkin and gourds, let me know would you? Then I will decide if I am brave enough to go out and invest in any myself.

Hope you are having a beautiful Friday sweet friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
