I have been autumn inspired by so many of you out there in blogland. I have never seen so many beautiful and creative displays of autumn colors in wreaths, tablescapes and even in pumpkins. ( I can only imagine what Christmas will be like.)
That being said, I’ll take you for a little tour of the exterior of my home to show you some of my fall decor. But before I do that, I would like to mention a few bloggers that had some awesome autumn projects to do. They are: Jane at Mamie Jane’s on how to make a wire pumpkin , Terry at Cherished Treasures on gilding and even has a video on it, Gina at The Shabby Chic Cottage for some cheap fall decorating tricks and Roeshel at DIY Show Off for her mercury glass pumpkins….absolutely stunning. Go check out their blogs. You won’t be disappointed.
Now to the tour. This is our little screened-in porch. We love it out there.
See the wire pumpkin on the glass top table. I got this idea from Jane.
Here is a close up of the wire pumpkin. I used some wire that I had and it worked out perfectly. To make my leaves I used a dowel rod and wrapped the wire around it. The fatter dowel rod was used to make my stem for the pumpkin.
I had to show you this….the metal chair you see was an auction item and it looked awful! It must have had nine layers of paint on it. It’s an old metal rocker and yet it’s the most comfortable seat on our porch. I sanded and spray painted it and now it fits right in. The tree is decorated with berries and leaf garland.
I made the wreath on our garage door last year.
Here is another comfy seating area on the porch with a little touch of fall.
As night draws near………
Below is our front porch. I keep it pretty simple. I made the pumpkin topiaries last year.
A picture of night drawing near of the front porch.

A sneak peak of my gilding that was inspired by Terry. I’m still tweaking the inside of my home. When I’m done, I will be sure to post it.
Hope you enjoyed my exterior tour of autumn at my home.
I’m linking this post today to Rhoda at Southern Hospitality for the Fall party.
