Today I’m showing your a place I have never, ever shown before. It’s “my spot” at StoneGable. At some point almost every day of the year, you can find me here. My porch swing! In the summer I’m out late at night swinging and counting the stars. In the winter I am bundled up in the afternoon with a cup of coffee and a big quilt. Right now, the swing right outside my back door, is dressed up for fall! I can swing and overlook the fields of golden soybean! The bucolic farmland out my back door is breathtaking! So if I don’t answer the front door, know that I’m probably around back swinging on the back porch waiting for you…
I’m delighted to be participating in… FALLING FOR FALL PORCH PARTY.
I just love the fabulous bloggers in this porch party!!! They are so so talented! Make sure to stop by each blog and see what’s on their porches this fall! Their links are at the bottom of this post!
And don’t forget to link up your porches new and archived! Join in!!!! We want to be inspired by you too!
I took these pictures in the early evening when the sun was soft and peeking from behind a big tree. The lighting makes the colors so saturated!
The most asked StoneGable question lately is “what is the pattern of your tartan throw”. Bobby’s side of the family is Scottish and it is our family tartan… ANCIENT BUCHANAN. We are an offshoot of this clan. I found this car rug, as it is rightfully called, on ebay. It is the first cover to be picked up when we want a little warmth while outside! It’s cozy and rugged!
Bobby put three hooks in the porch ceiling so I could hang lanterns above the swing! The lanterns hang on wrought iron hooks. I love this look! Especially at night!
Each lantern has a little fall vignette in them and a candle.
This fall I’m using lots of soft fall colors indoors. But outdoors… I’m mixing the two. Lots of contrast… lots of color.
Can you believe this is a faux pumpkin in the wooden dough bowl? Even up close it looks like the real thing!
Mums and pumpkins work wonderfully group together. For this porch decor I put them in galvanized containers!
The wreath on the back door was on my front door several years ago. Most of my wreaths start on the front door and then move to the back!
The colors work well with the tartan.
I hope you have enjoyed and been inspired by my fall back porch and swing! And have found a few doable ideas for your own fall decor!
Make sure you stop by my friend’s porches too!
