In keeping with showing you the Fall touches I have added around my house (here and here), I thought I would show you my front door. I wanted to keep it simple, adding just a few little touches.
I found this metal tub at a garage sale last weekend for $15 and I am totally in love with it. I have so many ideas as to what I can use this for, but it's first order of business was housing some beautiful, Fall Mums.
I just love the colors of this season. I know every blog in the world right now is talking about Fall, but it really is my favorite time of year. (Especially this year where, here in Portland, we still have sun and temps in the 70s. Amazing.)
About 2 years ago I bought this old, banged-up milk can at an auction for $10. My husband has made fun of me since then because I have not known what to do with it and it has just sort of sat in our backyard, unused and unloved. BUT - when I was decorating the front porch, I knew I needed something on that side of the door to balance out the metal-tub-'o-Mums and it just hit me: THE MILK CAN! Finally, that rusted little beauty has a rightful place in this world. I really love how it looks with the pumpkins and I think it feels happy there too.
As for the wreath, I made that myself about 4 years ago. To be honest, it's no longer my favorite and I want to make another one, but it will totally do for now.
All in all, I am happy with how these little touches brightened up our front door. It makes me happy to come home each day and really, isn't that what seasonal decorating is all about?
