  1. Kelly this is gorgeous! The front of your home is so inviting!

  2. I love them! I am working on something similar, and wondered what would help…berries, of course! Your entryway looks sooo inviting…is there wine inside?

  3. love how warm and inviting it is- the rake on the door is my favorite!

  4. That’s stunning!! did the pumpkins come in that color?

  5. Out with the sweet potato vines, in with the mums! Looks lovely!

  6. Love the rake …

  7. Love it, Kelly! It looks so welcoming.

  8. Some see pumpkin pie, I see cabbage rolls as the main course.


  9. Love, love, love your front porch all styled for fall. How fun.

  10. Target will be sold out of those $2.50 pumpkins before I get there today cause this is gonna cause a run on the store! Classy, cute, simple, quick, and inexpensive … a perfect combo for a holiday / short term decoration. Pinning (which doesn’t help my cause to prevent the pumpkins selling out)

  11. Wow, your door is gorgeous!! Love that warm wood. I’m not much of a Fall decorator myself. I wish I could find something Fall-ish I like that isn’t orange!

  12. Kelly your porch is adorable! And your music sheet pumpkin is stunning!

  13. Can I make mine pecan? I’m just sayin :) Love your pumpkins…..but those urns? Seriously.

    :) me

  14. I love your porch Kelly… every season. It’s such a treat all done up, no matter the holiday. It’s so enjoyable to get to see!! The pumpkins and mums are perfect :)
