Show and Tell Monday


u October is such a beautiful month. One of my friends took me out to lunch to celebrate my birthday and I took these pictures outside of the restaurant. The pumpkins were HUGE and the wreath on the purple door was delightful. I have been wanting to paint my front door and this will motivate me. While we dined indoors and enjoyed all the Fall decorations, the restaurant was also having it's annual outdoorFall Octoberfest, with a band, pony rides for the children, and all types of food to mark the occasion. Very festive. The weather was perfect.

Hi Susie, Just live your Fall decorations. I am really missing them this year.

I've decided that since it has still been warm outside and money is tight, I am skipping the whole Front Porch Fall Decor this year.

The wreath on that door is gorgeous. May have to do a scaled down version for my door. The pumpkins are displayed beautifully too. Simple and elegant.
