*Entering* Autumn

Melissa at The Inspired Room had a wonderful "Drive By" treat for everyone. In following her lovely lead, I offer my version!
I have always loved to see a happy front door! How well it sets the mood for the entrance into our cozy, warm homes. You know what I mean right? A pretty entry way all dressed up and ready to greet visitors. And isn't it fun to change the door and porch finery with the coming of each new season?
I took a drive around the area last week and found some lovely homes that were tickled orange to see Autumn's *entrance* and had added a bit of seasonal magic to their own *entrances*! Come on, let's take a peek...
Upon returning to our own neighborhood, I took a little walk to see some of my neighbors' entry ways. Oh how I love Fall and how I love a happy door!
Hmm...well, here we are back at Rabbit Run Cottage. Uh huh, the little blue house. It may be small but oh how we love it here. I have been having a bit of fun with Fall decor...
This weekend, after these photos were taken, we added even more pumpkins and planted some burgundy mums as well. Have I mentioned just how MUCH I love Fall? Okay...so I HAVE but oh how I LOVE it!
I do hope you are all well and that your week will be sweet. I apologize for not being as good a bloggy friend as I should be of late. Real life has a way of sneaking in and stealing a bit of online time! Each one of you is so special and so appreciated.
Please know I think of each of you often and when I do, I break into the happiest grin...
Love and Hugs,
Susie Q

So fun to see the home decorated for Fall. You got some pictures of beautiful front porches in your area.

Carolyn said...

I love Drive By Pics. And Porches are my favorite!

Great Post!

Bonnie said...

Those are great pics. I love, love, love fall, too, but it's not the same here in Central Florida. I grew up in New England, so fall here is almost always kind of disappointing. Thanks for sharing with us....makes me enjoy it a little more.

Ya gotta have a happy front door...too bad here in New England everyone...and I mean EVERYONE comes to the side door! What's up with that anywya? Have a terrific day!

Janet said...

Wonderful porches/entrances, but my hands down favorite is the Harlequin Door Pocket! I want one NOW!, yes, I was shouting!

Janet

Your home looks very special and it is not small, but about average size if it was here in New England.

I love your house! Is that a tin roof? Do you like it?

Charli and me said...

Your front porch is so pretty. I love to drive around looking at all the decorations every one puts up. Happy Autumn to you! This is my very favorite season and I enjoyed looking at all of your pictures.

FHL said...

Those entrances are beautiful! Lebanon looks gorgeous as well! The pics reminded me of a small quaint town in PA where my grandparents live. Beautiful.

Sending a hug!

Your neighborhood is beautful Sue! It's so nice to see everyone's beautiful and tasteful decorations. Where I am big ugly inflatables are all the rage -- and half the time they lay uninflated like a parachute on the front lawns ..lol... I never see the point of that! I have mums on my steps but I'm waiting a \little longer to carve my pumpkin to put it outside.

Beautiful entries Susie! And I love the scarecrows above too. There is a shopping square in our area that has a similar scarecrow event.
