Create a Pretty Fall Porch

When it comes to saying goodbye to summer, I’m like the girlfriend who doesn’t want to let her boyfriend go and desperately clings to any bit of fading hope I can grab. I love summer and am always a little depressed when it comes to an end. It’s a good thing fall bursts forth in riotous color and beauty. It helps heal the wounds that summer’s departure leaves behind. The beauty of autumn decor also helps lift the spirits … like a pretty fall porch.

And finally, Doreen at Hymns and Verses creates a beautiful screened-in porch with autumn accents. Why limit fall decor to the front porch when it looks as equally charming on a back porch?
