Touches of Fall… Inside and Outside

Asters and Mums are blooming now and make the yard look so fall-like.

Even the Rosemary is getting into the action and blooming one more time before the cold weather arrives.

This spider may give some of you the creeps, but I find his web and body pattern facinating. Unfortunately, his web got torn down when I planted pansies. The web was hooked to some Vinca and when I removed it from the bed, the web tore. I hope he relocated!

I used the arrangement that I made last fall for my front door. I added the chocolate brown ribbon for an update.

Screened porch – I love Indian Corn. I have had this bunch for years and years.

This piece came from my grandmother’s house. I wrapped some beads around it to glissen in the sun. Can you see my pumpkin topiaries in the background?

I save my gourds, dry them, and then clean them up to re-use. I love the color and texture of these old gourds.

These gourds are volunteers from my garden this year. They are the only thing besides some Basil that survived the deer!

I originally thought that I’d skip Halloween decorations, but I couldn’t resist putting out a few of my favorites. I love my Byers witch and cat. Mama bought them for me a long time ago.

This candy holder was my grandmother’s. It is old, but I don’t know how old.

This was in our basement when Mr. SP bought our house. The original owners had three children, so I guess it belonged to one of them.

I bought this old sap bucket at an antique show a few years ago. I love the expression!

One last picture… This old scale is on my kitchen counter. I love the pumpkin on top of it for this time of year.

I hope you enjoyed seeing touches of Fall from my neck of the woods!


  1. It looks gorgeous! You are so talented. I think I’ve done a great job when I put two pumpkins by the front door!

  2. Such pretty flowers… now that we’re down to heavy frost and the first snow, the only color of any sort comes from the tamarack trees as they turn yellow. Fall here is beautiful… but part of me misses being south…
