Another Fall Porch..... I Promise I'm Done Now!

Our garage porch gets LOTS of traffic. It's the most used porch on our house. We're just not front door kind of people and neither are our friends. Back door friends are the absolute best friends anyway, right? A few months back I did a post about the potting bench that calls this porch home {if you missed that post, you can find it here}. 
I still just love this little potting bench, but it needed some simple FALL-ifying. So, I moved some things around, and rummaged through some boxes in the basement, and now I'm in love all over again.

This little spot makes me smile every time I pull into the garage. And for some reason, I really haven't done much of anything inside the house to welcome fall, but I've really enjoyed re-doing our porches. Decorating for the seasons doesn't have to put you in the poor house. Shop around your house and your yard first and then decide if you really need to purchase an item. Often, you have something already, that when moved to a different spot, suddenly seems bright and new again. This is one of my best tricks for decorating on a budget and I use this little trick all the time. This has allowed me to enjoy decorating while spending very little for many years {it also keeps my hubby very happy}. 

I'm so glad you could join me today. Thanks for visiting! And remember, I love to hear from y'all, so chat it up in the comments below!
