~~~My Fall Breakfast Room Hutch~~~

I have all my Fall decorating done and today wanted to share my hutch in the breakfast room. I love, LOVE the colors of Fall, they are so my colors! I have fun every year decorating. Last year I didn't have this hutch in here. I am SO glad I brought it in. This is one of my favorite pumpkin  dishes. I bought it several years ago at the place where I worked. LOVE the muted colors and the design.I use garlands or picks on my shelves for added interest and texture.

I am so anxious to start painting the house inside! This wall will be done in an accent color. Stay tuned:)
 The basket stays on the wall. I added leaves to the gold jug,and a velvet pumpkin. On the right side I placed a grapevine wreath, a bee skep and my large, brown ceramic pumpkin.
 On the top shelf is a wrought iron lamp with a wicker shade. 2 sets of Fall picks surround that. The smaller brown pumpkin sits on a stand.The second shelf holds another favorite pumpkin.

and the bottom shelf has my sunflower plate, a wicker pumpkin that I decorated and a vase that is embossed with leaves.
The 2 shelving units (that are actually plant stands that I bought almost 30 years ago) have some Fall too!



I filled this lantern with some fall FLUFF, a dried gourd from last year, a leaf shapped bowl and some  pumpkin filler. The small pumpkin came in the box of filler too.


I put some berry picks in the leaf vase


I want to Pin this picture:)

Another Vignette on the Patio!!!

I didn't share this part of the patio yesterday cause I wanted to save it and the other post was getting too long. I do NOT want you all to be bored!!! Our weather changed on a dime today, the first day of Fall! It was 80 and summerlike yesterday and now it is COOL! But, that is fine with me. It means we will get to sit around this fireplace at night, sip something warm and cuddle under a pretty throw! We can either pull our chairs up to here or when we have guests we will move the fireplace out to the middle of the patio! It is very light and portable but gives off good heat!
 I cut some flowers from the yard to make an arrangement in my watering can.
 The hydrangeas are just starting to change color and I cut alot of them to dry too.  The grasses are blooming and I filled in with somer marigolds too.

 Love this stem and will probably save it when the season is over.
 I also placed a small pumpkin on the watering can.

 This lantern is a bug repellent. It holds a can of spray and has a remote so you can have it spray when you want, or you can set it to go off every few minutes.
 We had this hook so that was a real bonus.
 SO pretty!



 The hibiscus is still blooming too.


Thanks for your visit. HAPPY Fall to you all!!! Fall is my favorite season now. I love it all, the colors, sights, smells, food etc.
XO, Pinky

Fall Front Porch and Patio

There is a new linky party tomorrow with Porches Decorated for Fall so I thought I would share mine! We have a teeny, tiny entrance but I try to make the most of it. But then we built the patio last year and that is where the FUN happens:):) I am sharing both with you and will share some more tomorrow!! So, please come back!!! I love to make my home feel warm, cvozy and inviting all the time but when Fall arrives it takes on new meaning. Ther change of the season makes me want to invite everyone to come share all this beauty!!! I bought this urn, new this year, and filled it with a caladium, some coleus and impatiens for the Summer. The caladium and coleus are still beautiful so I just added a gourd and a cabbage, which is FAUX!! The pumpkin is faux as well. This area gets NO sun so I don't put alot of real things here. The green plant is one of my houseplants that has lived out here all summer.
 One of my mums, they are all blooming and may have to be replaced cause some are getting ragged:(
 This year I put 2 of my black lanterns out here with LED candles in one of them and filled the othere with Fall goodies. .
 Some of these mums are real and some faux, can you tell the difference?
 I still like my pumpkin patch fence that I got at a craft fair many years ago.
 I stacked 2 hay bales and placed some more pumpkins on them, along with a pot of this pretty flower whose name escapes me right now!
 Had to get a new flag this year and chose this to go with my lanterns.

 The front or the house.
 I also added a mailbox swag this year.
Our grass is so green caise Joe has been WORKING on it. He spread 5 yards of topsoil and then reseeded.
 A hanging mum greets us. I purposely bought one that is just in bud cause my SIL and her hubby are coming in 2 weeks and I want the mums to look nice then!

 I made this wreath last year but still love it!


 I got the rubber pumpkin mat at Kirklands this tear and placed it on top of the mat that is always there.

 Now we'll look around the patio. This time last year they were JUST building this! There were no flowers or plants yet!
 The leaf pillows are from Kirklands too. They had great things this year!
 I FINALLY made a stack of pumpkins! I have been wanting to do this for years!!!! One day I was at Lowes and they had all these pumpkins and I got then right in my cart!!!
 LOVE this!!:) (If you are wondering, that is a rain barrel for topping off the pond water. Rain water collects in there and then Joe rins a hose to the pond)
Still my favorite twiggy bench from Lowes.



 This is looking from our neighbors. The marigolds provide lots of beautiful color!

 And this is a SNEAK PEEK at what I will share tomorrow:):) Stay tuned.
 Thanks so much for stopping by. I am partying with:
