Paula's Autumn Porch Decor

alt="Bouquet of Talent Sunday Linky Party"

Our Home Away From Home
I am so flattered to say that this post has been featured as the most viewed link this week at Maria Elena's Our Home Away From Home Party!! Thank you so much Maria Elena, Paula and I are both thrilled! Make sure to check out the other features and Maria Elena's blog, just a hint she has a pretty fabulous home you will want to check out. Don't miss the link at the bottom of this post.
Is there a house in your neighborhood that is decorated for each season and holiday?

Sandwich Chalkboard

You know it, you check it out every time you drive by.

My dear friend Paula has a home like that. With all of her loving touches, Paula's home offers a heartfelt welcome to all.


I love how Paula can turn anything into a treasure. Like the old wheelbarrow in the photo below. When I pulled up to her house it was the first thing I noticed. Paula made that rusted old thing priceless, is what I thought!. A bit of Paula panache!!


Sweet little touches of fall fill up Paula's yard.

Darby, Paula's sister, makes these autumn buntings in the picture below for all of Paula's windows. The bunting is made out of an outdoor vinyl tablecloth. Clever and cute. I think they add so much charm to Paul's decor.

 I love the fabric Paula choose for her awnings below. The awnings look quaint and modern at the same time. The contrasting shutters add the perfect edging for the window.

 The window boxes are overflowing!

Thanks for the autumn eye candy Paula!

Paula, your porch is beautiful! Thank you for letting me share it on my blog.

I appreciate you stopping by today. Hope you enjoyed your visit. I know I feel like running out for a pumpkin spice latte now.

 Have a cozy fall day.
