Fall on the Porch

No, I didn't fall on the porch today... thank God. But I did put out my fall decorations. You will recognize most of it from last year. I added the pumpkin topiary and the plant with the scarecrow head this year. The scarecrow head was made by Yorkie's Primitives and I received it in our fall swap this year. It smells so good! Another view below... yes, the same old tired decorations. I hope to buy new stuff at the end of the season this year. How do you like my upside down pot for the plant stand.... I need to find a clay colored one... maybe I have one out there somewhere.

Below is a closeup of my topiary. I can't remember who to give the credit to for the idea, but one of you wonderful bloggers had made one this year, and I copied you. Leave a comment if it was you, please!!
I had fun making this topiary this morning.... nothing like raffia and hot glue! I need to buy two fall flags and spruce up the flower beds... and my outside decorating will be done.

I love the topiary, a pretty, yet easy thing to make. I'm slowly getting my fall stuff out, too.

I really like that topiary also! Are those real pumkins or fake?? Thanks!

Your fall decorations are pretty.. and I like the light green pot for the plants bottom... makes it look like a skirt for the head..it doesn't feel like fall today to me.. 87 degrees.. but I know its coming as some of the trees are changing colors and dropping their leaves..
