Not So Fall, After All! Day 2 of 'Mad About Mums!'

Welcome dear readers and new followers!
Today is day 2 of my series... "Mad About Mums!"
Sponsored by Lowe's Creative Ideas.
Today's fall decorating post is called "Not So Fall, After All..."  Why?
Because this is how my porch has been most of the summer.
I just added the mums for some color.
The deep red color is the perfect touch with my Red, White and Blue theme.
Many of my mums have bloomed two or three times this summer and fall.
So they will be beautiful in the garden year after year.
Remember mums aren't just for fall, they are wonderful perennials.
I love to collect anything vintage and metal.  This old water cooler is a favorite.  It has a lid too.
The old pump is from our old house, hubby grandparents place.
I hope you have enjoyed my little tour of the front porch.  Please come back every day this week for more post in this series.  Plus at the end of the week I will be giving away a $50 gift card from Lowes!

  1. Such a lovely porch setting! Can't wait to see more :o) And with google chrome I'm finally able to view & comment on your blog without issue! Yay!

  2. I love my mums! Keep coming back every year (and we thought they were annuals)!

  3. I am new to your blog and I love your porch decor. I especially love your sign about living in the country. I live out on 50 acres in Ohio and wouldn't trade living in town for the world. Have a great day!

  4. Makes me want to stop in a sit a spell and have some cider and chat. Seasonal flowers like mums do so much and as you have shown, it often only takes a few to make it happen. =-)

  5. New fan here. Your photographs are beautiful. I hope you will come share on my Blog Fest:

  6. Not sure if I'm leaving the "how I would decorate" in the right place - but I'd love more fall flowers for my porch!

    You're porch looks absolutely amazing!

  7. I love the feel of your porch, so welcoming!
    I would love to have you link up with my Clever Chicks Blog Hop this week!

    I hope to see you there!
    The Chicken Chick

  8. What a stunningly beautiful fall porch. Thanks for hosting this great giveaway. Mum's the word for me, too. I want a couple of giant mums to place on my vintage porch box that is flanked by a couple of rustic milo shocks.


Thanks so much for leaving a comment. I enjoy hearing from my readers!
