Fall Outdoors

The trees tree in our yard hasn’t started changing colors yet but some of our neighbor’s trees have.  I love those few weeks when the trees are filled with bold and vibrant colors.  It’s absolutely beautiful.  So while we don’t have trees showing out in all their glory I decided to let my front door and new stone patio steal the show.

It’s nothing fancy but more like a small nod to Fall.  My monogramed “S” is on it’s third trip around the sun and looking pretty good if I do say so myself.  The bright yellow contrasts wonderfully with the black door and really draws your eye to the entrance of our house.

Besides the monogramed “S” all I did was add a pumpkin.  I think I’ll let God handle the rest when He adds a bunch of colorful leaves to my lawn.

The two adult chairs are temporary.  They are currently on loan from the backyard while we wait for some adirondack chairs to be built.  We should have them by next Spring though!  With these wonderful Fall days recently we have really been enjoying our patio.  All of Michael Luke’s hard work paid off and I am so proud of him.  It’s nice to be able to sit and relax in our front yard some place other than the porch steps.  Noah also loves the two pink chairs for Esther and her.  She takes turns sitting in each one and occasionally likes to relocate them to various places in the front yard.  It keeps her occupied.

So I think if there was theme uniting all my Fall posts over the past two weeks it would be “simple”. I can’t help it… it’s just the way I roll and all I have time for really.  But honestly I like simple.  I like something that is easy to take down and easy to put up.  Something that doesn’t break the bank or take priority over other ways we could use God’s money.

What “simple” ways do you like to decorate?  Maybe it’s tying a bow on the mailbox, or a wreath on you front door?  Do you have a seasonal flag or sign?  Or do you just consider yourself an all around decorating holiday scrooge?  It’s ok if you do… just remember to enjoy the season with or without decorations.

If you missed any of my other “simple” Fall decorating posts you can find them here (Fall Mantel, Fall Craft, Fall Tablescape).

    Love it! And I love how you said that about using God’s money! You’re such an inspiration in more ways than one! 🙂
