Back Porch Falling~

Some of the best times spent
are on our back porch.

Warm fall days and cooler evenings find us here.


With a few little decor changes, the summertime gives way to the cozy fall days
spent here many mornings, afternoons and early evenings.
The porch has a vintage wood burner stove,
 I have carted this piece from house to house over many moves.

At the moment I have faux candles on timers inside the 
stove and in the evening it is so cozy.

On the stove top, I love to display a few pumpkins and gourds.


This is a vintage style metal teapot in the shape of a pumpkin.



I kept the summer pillows on the sofa.
The colors just worked with the bits of rust and orange.


I added a soft and cozy animal print throw to the mix.
It's ready to curl up with on a cool day or evening.


These two metal chairs from the 40's belonged to my parents.
They are in excellent condition and I treasure them.

It's the perfect spot to have coffee in the morning to greet the day.


The table here on the porch is the perfect spot for dinner outside when the temps allow.


The candles are faux and give a soft little glow in the evening.


Remember this French Flower Market bucket I created last spring?
Well recently when I trimmed my potato vine from another pot, I added the trimmings to
the dirt. Within a few days, it was thriving and has grown full and beautiful for the fall.


It also is giving a pretty show of blooms in a pretty purple pink tone.


Even a few leaves have turned colors for the fall.

This is the place we
Sit Long, Talk Much and Laugh Often.


Perfect fall days spent here with friends and family.
Making memories and enjoying the season.


Thank you for taking the time to visit today.
You know where I'll be
when I'm not painting.


Wishing you a beautiful fall week.

Hi Celeste! Oh, your porch is just gorgeous. More beautiful than most folks living rooms! Love all of your touches and that stove! How marvelous it must be to sit out there with your twinkling candles. The olden lawn chairs are wonderful too. We had those when I was a little girl and would love to have them now. Your home is so pretty, Celeste, inside and out - like you!

What a cozy spot for relaxing, Celeste, and I wish I could visit and chat with you on your pretty porch. I'd enjoy it in the day time, but especially in the evening, with the sof glow of the faux candles. Your wood burning stove is such a lovely focal point, and I can see why you've carted it around through many moves.
Your potato vine is so prolific and the purple color is perfect for Fall! Happy painting and then unwind on your restful porch! xo

Wow, I really love your backyard. That pumpkin teakettle is so pretty and the wood burner stove is just perfect. I can imagine how relaxing it is sitting out there snuggling up with that warm throw and enjoying this beautiful season... :)

Celeste, your Fall porch is so pretty! I love the sitting area! The pillows and throw make it look so inviting and a perfect place to snuggle up as the weather cools. The vintage wood burning stove makes this outdoor room so warm and cozy. It looks lovely accented for Fall; I love the pops of orange in the leaves. Your parent's chairs are treasures! I have two of my parent's chairs a and cherish them too. Your table is a perfect place to have coffee or a Fall dinner. You have created a beautiful Fall space that I would find hear to leave!

Celestina,
Your porch is delightful! So many things I just love. The pillows are beautiful! I love the sign which says it all! The vintage stove is my favorite and what a lovely, cozy feeling it gives the entire room. You are such an amazing decorator! I don't know how you find the time to do all this decorating and maintain your beautiful etsy shop inventory. So my question is: WHEN DO YOU SLEEP my friend?

Good Evening my lovely and kind Texas friend!
So great to catch up with you, and share the evening with you on your festive, cozy and inviting back porch. I can just imagine the gentle visits spent here with family and friends. You are so wise to use faux candles on timers-I really need to get some for our future back porch.
I have missed you, so great to be back again.
Have a lovely evening,

That is so wonderful you still have the vintage metal chairs that belonged to your parent! Love all of your fall touches, and how you've created yet another "room" outdoors!

Hi Celeste!

Everything looks so festive and fabulous for fall! Your patio is so perfect most of the year isn't it? I love it. Sorry I haven't been by lately but I've been traveling a lot lately. Just came back from a big wedding in Alabama and leave this week for a trip to Cape Cod with my northern girlfriend. Her hubby couldn't go so I get the honor of making the trip. The wheels on my suitcase are smokin'!

Hope you're enjoying this beautiful fall. Love to you and your guy! Edie
