Vicksburg welcomes Fall

A few days ago, I rode through some of my favorite neighborhoods in Vicksburg to see this year's Fall decorations. I wasn't disappointed, and found a mix of styles, from whimsical to elegant.

This is one of my favorite houses, and I was happy to see that they were displaying their collection of pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns again this year. I love traditions, don't you!

A couple of houses down, I noticed the Lantana blooming at this cottage-style house ...

The flag is a permanent fixture at this pretty house, whatever the season ...

Isn't that little metal dog sculpture cute! If you click on the picture, you can get a closer look at it.

Another one of my favorite houses in Vicksburg:

A fun and pretty way to welcome Trick-or-Treaters!

The owners of this house never fail to make me smile, and stop to admire their imaginative and creative decorating, and they outdid themselves this year.

I've saved my favorite for last. I gave this house the "Most Elegant" Award, and love the way the owners used natural looking materials to achieve a casual, yet elegant, look ...

Be sure to click on this picture to get a closer look at those beautifully carved doors:

It is always fun and interesting to see creativity and imagination reflected through homeowners' seasonal decorations, and I hope you enjoyed my "drive-by" tour of these beautiful homes. I'm looking forward to seeing and sharing "Christmas in Vicksburg," too. It will be here before we know it!

But in the meantime ...

Loved seeing these fall decorations, Janie. I especially like the way they've untwisted that grapevine and swagged it around the doors. That has a great look. I'm thinking that's what they've done as I have a florist friend who does something similar with live garlands at weddings.

I also like the groupings of pumpkins and mums up the side of the stairs. SO cute. Makes me realize how far behind I am! LOL!
