Love this rusty holder Ive used for these produce.
Welcome to our Home!
Three different pumpkins stacked together.
Dried hopps wrapped around a bird cage holder which Ive put a cool metal project that I bought from Sues garage sale this past summer.
Love the varieties available now.
Next to our front door to greet you.
On a shelf of an end table on our porch.
Beautiful tin I bought in Oronoco this past summer, goes great with our home color as well as the hopps for Fall decor.

Just a few photos of our front porch, which currently greet visitors.  I'm thankful today to live in America, land of the free, to have the most wonderful husband and daughter, to have wonderful friends through out the country made through JMS, bloggin and the junking journey I've been on.  Thanks for being a part of my life!  Blessings to you today and always.

Love your porch! Luscious green color. My Grandmother always said green was God's color. (could be why it's my fav.)
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
