Fall is only a week away by the calendar and while it may take longer for Mother Nature to get the memo here in the South, I’m counting down the days!
We had a some cooler weather over the weekend with morning temperatures in the 50s and highs in the 70s, making it enjoyable to be on the porch again for dining and reading. . .
And enjoying coffee in the mornings. . .
Or a glass of wine in the evening.
There’s nothing like some crisp, cool weather to energize you! We’re warming back up to the high 80s later this week, but a few days reprieve from the heat was enough to inspire me to add a little fall nook on the porch.
I added some pillows and throws with a little plaid and fall color for some cozy layers.
And while leaves won’t begin to turn here until mid-October, pumpkins are starting to trickle in to garden centers. I’m ready to cozy up with pillow versions of both!
I added some botanicals for a little fall color and texture to a pair of lanterns.
And a basket has a harvest of mums, Indian corn, ivy and willow pumpkins.
I can always get a Fall fix and find inspiration from magazines. . .
One of my favorites to pick up the Autumn issue of Southern Lady Magazine.
Feast your eyes on some dreamy photos of pumpkins on the porch while you wait for Fall to arrive. . .
Chloe says she’s ready for fall too!
Gracie says a nap sounds like a good idea :)
Are you looking forward to fall or sorry to see summer go?
