A little more fall decorating

Here are just a few more pictures of my fall decorating.  I still hope to make a fall garland (although it may turn out to be a Thanksgiving garland) and will be sure and post a picture of that when I do.

I failed to take a picture of the entire hutch before, but have done so now, and here it is.  Now you can get the full effect.

My fall ribbon board in the front hallway!

Simple grapevine wreath on the front door.  I usually keep the ivy but add other elements seasonally.

Fall slate on the front porch.  This is the first time I have displayed this.  I wasn't sure about the pink barn, but I love the effect on the rustic porch.

Happy fall, everyone!


  1. NICE! :) I was thinking about your ribbon board last night. I must have run across it on your blog before. If I can find a spot for it, I am going to have to get one - such a neat idea. (I like the pink barn, by the way. The slate is so cute!)

  2. Mrs. Smith, I have the directions for making a ribbon board here on the blog. It is very simple -- foam core board, fabric, thumbtacks and ribbon. If you scroll down to the very bottom of the page, you will find a list of Popular Posts. I think "Making a Simple Ribbon Board" is the third one down. Some of the comments also offer ideas for decorating with a ribbon board. One lady suggested making one for the kitchen to post recipes on. Have fun with it!

    Glad you like the slate. I am not sure, but I think I got that on clearance at Jo-Ann's for next to nothing.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I love your fall decorations! This is my favorite time of year! My kids love to decorate the house for fall, especially our "Wall of Things We are Thankful for:"
    Have a great day!

  4. Hi!

    Oh, a "Wall of Things We Are Thankful For" sounds like such a good idea, especially with kids! I imagine they are coming up with many different things they are thankful for!

    Thanks for stopping by to visit -- I know you are a busy mom!

    God bless,
