When hickory nuts fall, Autumn has arrived! At least in my neck of the woods. Our hickory trees drop their nuts thickly. We gather the nuts in buckets and throw them away so they don’t trip us up, interfere with lawn mowing, or take root. The nut in the photo is still a little immature because I cheated and pulled it off the tree. This is sorta the way I feel about Fall too. Summer is waning, but not quite gone. I’m anticipating Fall, but it’s not ready to arrive yet. And the leaves won’t be fully off the trees until after Thanksgiving.
Here’s my last Summer arrangement that I can’t bear to break down yet~
So I’m finally into a little Fall decorating around here. I’ve seen so many of your lovely Fall porches that I got inspired and created a few looks of my own.
The pineapple cutting board is one of many I have, but don’t use anymore. The pottery vases I’ve had a long time and enjoy decorating with when they aren’t buried under a ton of yard sale stuff waiting to be listed. The books I got at an estate sale, and the old farmhouse kettle was gathering dust on top of my kitchen cabinets. The gourds and pumpkin are realistic specimens from Dollar Tree. The plant is real and called “Creeping Jenny.”
Here’s my Fall porch decor~
The wooden wheelbarrow was gathering dust and cobwebs in the garage. I bought it at a yard sale a good while back, and it suffered from dirt and a broken wheel. Thanks to hubby’s expertise, he did a few repairs, and it’s as good as new. I’ve had the shutter a while and brought it out after slapping some paint on it. I just bought the watering can at an estate sale this weekend…more on that in another post. I was ready for some white mums, and there you have it…just a simple arrangement.
Do you like it? Happy Labor Day Weekend everyone!
