It's beginning to look a lot like Fall

              Who has joined me in the Fall decorating already?
                 I can't wait to see what you all have been doing.

I've been elbow deep in my Fall and Halloween boxes
and truth be told,
I'm just about finished.

Remember that I was working on my Sun porch on the last post?
Those of you who know me know that I loooove Halloween and normally the sun porch would be overloaded with noisy Halloween animations.    This year however,  it's calm and quiet.  I just wanted to create a cozy fall space where I can finish those books,  take a nap or catch up on some blogs.

I did something that I have always wanted to do and hung leaves from the ceiling. Now, I'm mad that I haven't done this sooner..
It's perfect. 

I wish the picture did the room justice.
Just imagine...  
You're sitting out there with good cup of coffee,  the apple pie candle is giving the room ambiance and when the breeze blows through the windows the leaves flutter and dance.

I just love it!

The handsome boys love it too.

I am still waiting for the new door to be installed before I do any decorating to the front of the house, 
but I did add a few touches of fall to the back deck.

I added a row of pretty mums to the gardening table that I made back in the spring.

  since I love orange's and blue's together...
more orange mum's on this old chair.
 I even put my Halloween countdown sign out already.
Of course there are to many days to count.

And now,  I can't wait to add real pumpkins to it all!

I hope that  you all are having fun digging into your fall things too.
I can't wait to see it all.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Linking up with Jan and Share Your Cup


  1. Like your hanging leaves. : )
    The mums are beautiful.

  2. OhHHHHHHH!!
    I love it!
    Autumn is my absolute favorite...
    And the way you have decorated and described enjoying it? Perfect!
    Happy Fall.
    I will be posting mine on Monday. : )

  3. The leaves are a great idea hanging from the ceiling! I have always wanted to hang snowflakes from my ceiling in winter. I did it for a party once and it was delightful. No Fall decorating here yet....I have to wait till we are fully into the season :-)

  4. I love the leaves on the sun porch. (I wish we had a sun porch at our house). I also think that countdown calendar is adorable. We LOVE owls around here.

  5. Way to go, Leslie! Looks like you're ready for fall, for sure. I haven't started yet and have to get busy. It all looks very cozy and the mums are perfect for it. Best, of all are your boys, they are adorable and I always like to see pics of them. I'd love to have a dog, but am out-voted since we have a cat. Lucky you with 2! :-)

  6. It look Great....but the most beautiful are your dogs....lovely sunday....x

  7. Looks wonderfully festive!! Your dogs sure are cutie pies! Love their big brown eyes. Have a great weekend!

  8. Fun! There was a huge box of real pumpkins at Walmart this morning... Very exciting:@)

  9. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I've enjoyed perusing yours. I have not started the Fall decorating yet as it is hard to get enthused when it is in the 90s outside. We do have nice pumpkins in our garden all ready. Does that count?

  11. I love your Autumn touches, especially your potting table! so pretty!

  12. The leaves really did make the room feel magical! I can imagine them blowing in the gentle breeze. I love aqua with orange as well. I've pulled out my fall décor, but our house will be tore up in October getting new hardwood floors. I'll miss my Halloween décor. Thanks for sharing with SYC. I will be featuring you tomorrow.
