 Welcome Fall, and welcome friends!! Come on over and sit a spell.
See how I went from this, to fall.

I added a few very inexpensive fall decorations that I picked up at Family Dollar. They cost me $3 each!! Gracie likes the color.

I bought 2 different color garlands, a pick, a netted grouping of plastic gourds all at Family Dollar.

I just kind of tucked a long garland into my existing flowers. I like the pink in there still.
This is the garland that is more of the yellow and orange colors. I tucked it into my greenery garland that is secured onto my bench back. It really did add some nice fall feel to it. Don't you think? 

Here is a close-up of my metal mannequin at the doorside.

I wrapped the other garland around it.

 It really added the look here!

I am very pleased.

Would love a few large white pumpkins though. Would put them along the base of the stand.

Pretty, do you agree?

I took my birdnest out of this and replaced with a fall pick and the little plastic gourds.

 Around the porch I added more fall colors. A $3 rusty color mum to my rusted blue tin. A $5 live arrangement to an old rusted metal planter. Notice I tucked in the BOO. I'll take it out after halloween.

My little flower bed is going to be so sweet too!! The plants I transplanted are really doing well!! I only added the mums that are in front of the tall wooden birdhouse, and the other little plants I can't recall the name of.

 I added a couple of those winter califlower looking plants. I can never remember what they are called. Do you know what they are? If so, please do tell.

Look how well my Hydrangea are doing!! I clipped them off a neighbors bush last year. They made it through the winter and then they made it to my new place and are really doing great!!! I can't wait to see them in Spring! I sure hope they make it through Winter.

So that's it. Gracie and I have our porch all cleared off from our move. I have it decorated and today we are just chillaxin. Hope you leave us a note and tell us what you think and  tell us what you are doing to you porch for fall.

Tootle loo for now.

Luv from Shabby Jen & Gracie too.

Here are a few links for you to look at. I have enjoyed them over and over.

Happy Fall Y'all!!


  1. Love it all, Jen! You have transformed your world into a soothing, restful haven, in record time.

  2. You did a great job. Your porch is now so welcoming! But that dog looks out of place and I really think she belongs...........oh, let's see.....oh yeah, she would fit in well at my house! :)

  3. It looks just wonderful, warm and inviting..I adore that most important part of your decor..Miss Gracie!! Love to you both!!

  4. I love your porch, Jen! Such a nice place to sit and read relax and just watch the world go by! Gracie seems to like it too! The fall decorations are so sweet! I haven't gotten any of mine out yet. That's part of my plan for tomorrow. Your new place is so sweet - I could admire it for hours! So glad you're happy there! Thanks for sharing! Hugs, Leena

  5. Jen, I love your iron bed sofa!! Looks like Gracie loves it too. And the perfect fit for your porch. :) Congrats on your new home and making it so warm and inviting.

  6. The porch changed, but that dog decoration just stayed LOL! I love it, and I too would like to find some perfect white pumpkins!!


  7. I am soooo behind as always on checking out everyones blogs. Your porch is sooo cute!

  8. You did a marvelous job with your porch! Sooo pretty and inviting are both seasons!
    I think your Hydrangeas will make it and it won't be long 'til you have blooms. I planted the plants from the store that were labeled for indoor use only and you should see the size of the bushes they are now! HUGE!
    So glad I found your blog as I have enjoyed you so much on Facebook!
