Halloween on the Front Porch...

It's almost Halloween and time to share some front porch decorating!  Our "front porch" is really just a front step with a sidewalk in front of it, but I try to make 
the most of the space.  Of course, the fall leaves make a wonderful start...


Mums always add wonderful seasonal color along with pumpkins...



You might remember my old wood rocker.  Many of you thought it was red, but it is actually bright orange!  I added a chippy old black screen door as a backdrop, and some wood crows, along with a fun sign I painted...


I used an old board with a great gray/green paint and rustic patina, as my base...


nothing perfect here...



I love this ceramic pumpkin I found this year, too...



On Halloween night, we light it up with little orange lights, and put a scarecrow in the rocking chair!  We are expecting a hard frost tonight, so the big fern will take on distinctly creepy purple-black foliage in time for Halloween... 


Hope you have a fun and safe holiday!

Until next time...
