My revised fall porch

This was my porch earlier today...
I love so much about it. The pumpkins...the make-shift chalkboard... & the hay bale that I store in the garage all year just to bring out during Sept-November for my fall decor. I think this may be the one thing my husband just doesn't get about me... :) I always add mums on one side but I just wasn't loving it this year. Reason number 1: it's too small (sometimes the thrifty side of me makes poor decorating choices) Reason number 2: the ugly black pot. Well I couldn't do anything about the size of the plant since I wasn't willing to buy another one (yet).

Then I had a lightbulb moment when I remembered the stash of burlap I had bought for another project... So here's my simple quick fix. It doesn't magically grow the plant but it does help me love it a little more than I did this morning.


  1. The burlap was the perfect addition!! It 'bulked' up the mum just enough! :)

    And I too sometimes let my cheap side have a little too much control and end up regretting that I didn't just make the more expensive purchase that I would have been happier with!

  2. super cute!!! I'm going to miss all of the fall decor!!!

  3. How clever! You've really inspired me this week - hope you'll pop over to see what I've been up to!
