Autumn in New England...

Welcome to our yard....

Although I've cut back on decorating inside the house for the autumn...


I still enjoy decorating the yard.


I couldn't resist this sweet pumpkin scarecrow from Target several years ago...


A little bit of fall color tucked into the wreath on the garden gate...


Another great Target find, my bunnies...


... who like to welcome everyone from their spot on the front stoop...


This guy has been around since my girls were little ones, so that's a long, long time!!


And I just can't resist a black cat, so when I was looking for a Halloween flag, it didn't take me long to decide on this one!

I took pictures of some of these same decorations the other night... in the dark... under an (almost) full moon...Spoooooky! I'll show those in a future post!

Happy autumn from New England!!

Love all the outdoor decor! My favorites are your garden gate and front stoop area! I have done most of my decorating inside and not a whole lot outside. You are making me want to add some fall stuff to my back patio so I can enjoy it!

How cute! I love how your porch is so welcoming. Where did you find that darling little flag? I want one. Is it the small ones? I can't find anything that cute around here in the small size.

Hugs,
