Fall Greetings

I can't believe it's October already.
Where does the time go?

Over our back door, there is a metal....awning...I guess you'd call it.
I couldn't wait to give the area under it a little Fall love.




When my son came home from school he quickly remarked,
"This looks nice!"
Ahh, what a sweetheart.  That boy knows just what to say.
And isn't that all that really matters anyway?

Gina, what a welcoming entry! I haven't even started on mine. I only have the wreath on the door; and it rained all weekend. I really need to get busy! You keep motivating me with all of your posts!

Good Morning Gina, What a lovely welcome your friends and family will receive when they come to your door.....it's just perfect. Best Wishes Daphne

Gail said...

I agree with your son...it does look nice! It's so warm and welcoming and a wonderful way to greet your guest. If your place is anything like ours, we rarely have front door guest. All of our guest either enter through the garage or the screened-in porch and that even includes the UPS guy...LOL!! Enjoy your day, Gail

Hi Gina,
What love bug your son is! He loves his mama....
Your back door awning decor looks great and so festive. I put a few things but have to wait now until the painters are done painting all the new crown and casing moldings. They should be done by Friday. My poor house is such a mess right now.
Sending you big hugs, Elizabeth

I love the way it looks, and I have to tell you that in addition to the fall stuff, I love the way you have your door numbers down at the bottom of your door.

Gina,
You make such a lovely home for your family. How wonderful to come home from school to such warmth and charm.

Johnny is sweet to take notice of your efforts.

Your children will carry your special attention to detail into their adult lives. It will bring you joy when you visit them.
