Autumn Porch Decorating

I love Fall! The earthy colors are some of my favorites. If you follow my blog you would remember that I had white wicker furniture before. After a trip to the Biltmore Estate I was insprired by the more natural wicker that was used on the porches. So my hubby surprised me with a new porch set for my birthday.
I really love the warm honey color mixed with rusts and oranges.

 Faux pumpkins along with some indian corn  give just enough color to brighten my table. So many real looking pumpkins can now be found without the mess of a mushy mess later to clean up.

 We love to sit out here at night and take in the cool night air along with the sounds of owls hooting in the distance.

 Last years wreath I made was dressed up with a new bow for fresh look.
 My mum from last year needs just a few more days to show off its yellow flowers just beginning to bloom. These two rockers now need to be repainted again to go more with colors of the rest of the porch.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my porch as much as I loved decorating it. Soon it will transform more into a more Halloween style but I usually wait till about a week before to  do so.

 It seems like my life is forever in a turmoil. I feel like I am just going through days and weeks on end on auto-pilot. If you follow my blog (for what little of it has become) you would recall about my son. Of course when you think God has gave you enough to bare more follows. My son has now been diagnosed with cancer of both his 1 kidney he has left and of the liver. We will be soon beginning to start treatment at Hershey cancer center. He will get admitted for his treatment and will get 2 of these to see if there is any response before more will be done. I really need prayers for him. I myself am going to see the doctor to check my blood pressure since I had a few series of nose bleeds and the nurse checked mine and it was 172/90. Not good and since high blood pressure runs in the family it is probably been semi-high but never like this. Until then keep my son in your prayers.
