Fall Porch

So one big major struggle I've had in this new house (which is very minor on the any scale of home decorating) is that fall colors simply do not work
I've collected a lovely selection of autumn colors like oranges, greens and reds and it does not go well with aquas, whites and creams. 

I simply cannot NOT fall decorate, so while I conjure up some indoor decorating ideas, I took some of my regular fall decor to the porch. 
I can do no wrong out there!

Last years HARVEST PILLOW is still kickin' around!

This vintage aqua glass water bottle I scored (for free!) from our last city's freestore.
I've talked about freestores before (also known in some cities as "freecycle") be sure to google it for your area, it's simply a group where things are posted, like craigslist or kijiji but all free.

My fall wreath trickery...

Because I simply added a dollarstore candle ring to the center of the wreath.
Genius, I know it.

Pretty self explanatory vase of flowers.

The whole thing.

Now, as I said, indoors is kinda sucky right now. 
Not fallish at all.

All I have that is slightly working for the fall would be my Silly Mama Quilts mat 
(You can find one for yourself HERE for $16.50 including shipping)

As for the rest of the indoor decorating, I imagine I have a few orange pumpkins to spray paint white.
Fingers crossed for warm weather in the next couple days so I can!!

I have that Dollar store wreath! Of course I do! I love your tricky ways. And I totally thought your glass bottle was one of those big plastic water dispenser bottles at first, just maybe like a really fancy one. I got excited for a second like, "What? You can do that? I have those!!" but then you had to go and be all "No, Courtenay, I own the real vintage actual glass one. You just can't fake it." And then I was sad, but happy for you!

Looks great. I love the jar and the wreath for sure. Thanks for sharing.

I totally agree about the fall colors thing. I bit the ullet this year and added some new colors to my house. I doubt I do the same at Christmas. What can I say? I am just in love with white and blues. :)
