A New Fall Wreath


I love decorating for Fall, and this year I needed a new wreath for the door that leads from our porch into the breakfast area. I used my grapevine wreath from last year and embellished it with new berries, seed pods, and vines. Then, as a focal point in the center, I added a small gourd shaped like a pumpkin. I was pleased with the way it turned out.

This is the porch where we greet most of our visitors, and where we spend most of our time when we're outside.

I took these pictures around 4:30 a.m., this morning, so that's why they look like they were taken at night (you can click on them to enlarge them if you'd like).




I love this time of year and hope you are enjoying nice Fall weather where you are. By the way, happy October!

Were you the early bird or had you gone to sleep yet? My, that was early but something I could see myself doing, especially when Mr B travels. Time gets away from me.

Your wreathe looks wonderful! I like the addition of the pumpkin gourd. I remember your wreathe from last year and love your new touches. Your whole porch is such a pleasant and lovely place. Anyone would feel welcomed.

Your wreath is so pretty. Would love to have a porch like that. 4:30AM!?!?
I wake up early many times, but usually go back to sleep.

I love your decorations on your porch...so inviting! Maybe one day we will meet...I met Marty yesterday at the flea market and he said he had met you earlier in the day. It was so nice to finally meet him. I know that you feel the same way I do. Take care and you have a blessed Sunday! :)
