Feeling the Autumn Love?

Inspire others...share!

Has the autumn weather hit your area yet?  We are having an unusually warm October here in the midwest, and you can bet I’ll take it!!

The leaves are starting to fall, our garden is slowly going to sleep, and wood splitting is in full force.

Gotta love the scent of fresh split wood. I can feel the winter warmth already.

Seeing that pile just makes me want to start up a fire and grab a cup of cocoa.  Mmmmm….
And that doesn’t stop me from feeling like continuing to add more fall decorations. I had been wanting to do a corn husk wreath for some time and even had the husks sitting aside for a good month till I finally got to them.
Here’s what I came up with:

See what I mean?  Not a normal fall here.  That sun has been so bright and is always out – you won’t hear a lick of a complaint from me!

To make this wreath, I just hot-glued the corn husks (free) to my curbside find grapevine wreath (free – you wouldn’t believe how many people throw away perfectly good grapevine wreaths!), added a rusty crusty tart tin from a thrift store find ($.25), and a bit of jute webbing as a hanger (already had on hand from my rockers here and here).  Added a bit of hand painting, and… Voila!

I love its simplicity and welcoming feeling.

Even better is my favorite perennial, Autumn Joy, mixed with some Chrysanthemums.  Not to mention some gourds all atop a curbside find chair – perfect!  Can you believe I also got the autumn-colored chevron handmade curbside throw too? tsk.tsk.tsk.

Sigh…fall is here and I’m lovin’ every minute. (I may not be saying that after I’ve raked the yard 12 times and have blisters to prove it.. ahem).

How about you?  Still finding ways to incorporate autumn into your home?

Pin and share to inspire!

    The wreath looks beautiful, Larissa!

    Your whole porch looks so warm and inviting!

    And the woodpile is staggering!! Oh my goodness, what a lot of work!! But think how you’ll all be so thankful for it on those cold winter nights. 🙂

    I love this wreath! It’s been a while since I’ve been inspired to make a new wreath but now I must make yours.

    Love it … best one I have seen. I have what I need to make one except that perfect tart tin … maybe I can find something else, but that looks just like a perfect sunflower center. Thanks for sharing … New follower and I will be back for more inspirations.
    Blessings,

    The tart tin is perfect for the center. As for the beauty of the leaves – I love to watch them fall, but do not like raking. Luckily yesterday we had plenty of wind to blow them all into the street.

    Very clever! Love the tart tin on top of the cornhusks, great texture. As for the wood pile…we used to heat with wood exclusively and I still get a feeling of well being seeing a nicely stacked wood pile. Enjoy!
