Autumn Front Porch

With the trees getting ready to trade their summer green leaves for hues of orange and yellow vibrance, like every year, I breathe Autumn in as a time for restoration and new beginnings. It is by far my favorite season. The gorgeous view I have the pleasure of waking up to every morning becomes even more so as the leaves begin to turn. All of my neighbors seem to bring Fall in by bonfire and the smell of the crisp Autumn air followed by burning wood just makes my soul sing. I love the colors, the weather, the smells, the bonfires, the pumpkin everything, the chance to wear jeans, sweaters, and boots… I can go on forever.

Without the risk of sounding like a seasonal Hobby Lobby sign, I will just get to the front porch tour via photos. Enjoy.


This wonderfully rusted bucket is gift from my Father-in-Law! Absolutely love it!!!

MUMS and mini-pumpkins can be found @Walmart all for less than $5!! (5 little pumpkins for under $3!)

Amber vases, glasses, and bottles are a HUGE trend this Fall season. I found mine at Target from the Magnolia Hearth and Hand collection from Joanna Gaines.

Looks like its time to re-paint the porch!

Can you spot Jack and Junior? LOL

You can see the backwards “LOVE” sign my daughter hung in the front bedroom.

The steps definitely need a good cleaning this weekend. Do you FALL Clean too?

Still love my neutral pumpkins from last season. They can still be found at Michael’s Craft Store. Olive buckets are from Homegoods. Majority of the decor on the front porch are from Hobby Lobby, Target, Michael’s and Homegoods. Most still can be found this season. The table is an antique find and the chairs are from Tractor Supply. The WELCOME ladder is a DIY from scrap wood, painted letters, and an old discarded ladder from a jobsite.

The Antique Crocks holding MUMS are from The “Antiques Only” Barn in Washington Township, NJ. -They now have “Lay-Away” which makes pricey antiques much more obtainable with only 15% down! Check out their amazing selection of new, old, and found goodies from several unique vendor booths! *Definitely my GO-TO Stop for all my antique and vintage collectibles and decor at Fowler Cottage.

Thanks for stopping by!! 🙂

Neutral Autumn Porch

Autumn is by far my favorite season. The weather is beautiful and so are the colors in the trees and the sky. I wanted to share with you a short tour of our porch decorated for the Autumn season. Enjoy!

This table I made a couple weekends back from scraps and pallets in our basement workshop. The ticking stripe chair was another DIY on a whim. The chair was trash picked a few years ago, no shame in my game 😉 and the fabric is from Joanne’s Fabrics. All I did was paint with white chalk paint and distress with a sanding block.
