Fall Fun....

Welcome to our porch!
Oh what fun we had decorating for your visit!
My lil helpers and I gathered pinecones and pretty leaves, funky berry branches and a fallen birds nest to add to our many pumkins and gourds!
We filled the lil wagon and scattered them around the washer.
{don't you love my vintage washer?}
{it's my favorite porch piece}
Won't you join us for warm cider and cuppy cakes?
Warm Hugz, Dolly, Coral and Lil Guy

Miss Dolly what a great vignette, it's so pretty and perfect for fall. Don't laugh but I sure do remember using those old ringer washers. They were a lot of work but frankly I think they got the clothes a lot cleaner.

Love to join you for hot cider and cuppy cakes.

That washing machine on your porch is so neat. Reminds me of grams old washer with a wringer.

Blessings,

Dolly now that has to be the most original Autumn decoration for the front of the house that I ever did see!! What great creative skills you have I love it!

I am so pleased that you introduced yourself to me and sure hope you continue to visit me! I was shocked in hearing how {{{{Long}}} you had the same virus that I am suffering from!!! I pray that I get relief soon and can get off the meds and get on with my life! I am a survivor of breast cancer and I have to tell you this virus is much worse than my journey with cancer!
On a posative note it is apleasure to meet you! hugs Anna

Hi Dolly, what a great display. I just LUV the little bird houses and all the pumpkins. I've never tried cider but I absolutely can't resist cuppy cakes 'MMMMMMMMMM' Thanks for dropping in and having a look at my hard work I think it was worth it.
PS. I painted the wicker last year and it just never seems to finish.
Have a great night.
