Front Porch Pumpkins

I am linking with the wonderful, quirky, and delightful Debra of Common Ground for the Vintage Inspiration Friday Party.

Can you tell I am fond of her?

I am late to the party of course.

The theme is fall decorating on the front porch.

I did that a tiny bit.

I have four pumpkins.

Three real ones and the concrete one shown on the last post.

I have also put in an image of the front door of the old house with a snaggle tooth pumpkin made from tin.

I nearly forgot the mums.


If you have not visited Debra already please go on  over there for more front porches.

  1. I wish you would warn me when you are going to put up a post called 'Front Porch Pumpkins' - I would turn on the 'safe search' on Google then. You should see what came up on my screen!

  2. Love the color of Mums ~ the snaggle tooth pumpkin is Adorable.... Thanks for Sharing

  3. Really sweet decor! I love your basket with the pumpkin and the mums are beautiful! I'm hosting a decorating inspiration party too, if you would like to join in this weekend! :)

  4. Your pumpkins and mums look so cute but I am really loving the tin pumpkin on the door!

    Happy Weekend, Olive!


  5. I really like the metal basket that holds one of your pumpkins.

  6. Great pumpkins and love your rock on your house.

  7. It looks fabulous. I love the baskets holding the pumpkins. The doorhanger is so fun. Such a lovely and inviting porch. Love it. Hugs, Marty

  8. OK, you've been holding out on me with that incredible black screen door!!! Way too cool, and love that pumpkin hanging from it. Gee, Olive, I have a lot to live up to. I think we're two pumpkins in a pod...quirky...
    love ya,

  9. That metal basket is very neat. Perfect for a pumpkin! Great photos - that stem is a cool shot.

  10. Olive,
    love how you decorated your porch! love that holder you have tour pumpkin in- your house is lovely...


  11. I love how your pumpkin looks in the basket. Your mums are beautiful!...Christine

  12. Hi -- I love that tin pumpkin on the old door. I am so intrigued about your owning the old house -- and the yellow house. So, you live in the yellow house?

    We were very lucky -- our house was built in 1832 but has always been cared for and maintained. We've put a lot into the house, but much of it was our choice (well, not the electrical work and the basement shoring-up, lol).
    thanks for visiting That Old House. I'm signing on as one of your Followers!

  13. You have very beautiful stone on the front of your home, and it looks amazing with the pumpkin orange.

  14. Nothing says fall better than pumpkins on the porch! Love the metal basket you have one of the pumpkins in. Beautiful stone work on your house too.
    Have a great weekend.
