~Fall is in the Air~

Even though it has been exceptionally warm here this week, the sun goes down earlier and it is chilly in the mornings and evenings.  My favorite part of Summer is taking a break on my porch which is like another room in our home this time of year. 

Warm Summer evening are the best with a glass of wine and my latest JDL magazine surrounded by plants, statuary, urns and chippy garden pieces.  I will miss using this area once the cold weather and rain comes back.  Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend and hope you are able to sit back and enjoy the rest of Summer:-)  xoxo K.



Linking up with Donna over at Funky Junk for SNS  and Courtney at French Country cottage for Feathered Nest Friday.

  6. Oh that porch looks so inviting. I love this time of year too. It is so nice to have the windows open for sleeping and I have a chaise lounge that is covered with a floral ruffle cover and I love to relax out there with my magazines too. It is so peaceful. I will miss the summer but love the cooler nights and mornings too. Beautiful pictures.

  14. Your vignettes are always so beautiful, Kathleen! Your porch looks like the perfect space to kick back and enjoy the cool summer evenings, too. :) It was reeeeally cool here today - definitely autumnal!! It actually felt pretty good to have those crisp breezes flowing the open windows and making their way through the house. Such a nice change! Makes cleaning the house enjoyable! lol!

  24. Hi there, thank you for letting me enjoy your porch. I love porches too, I lost my wonderful front porch and my deck off my kitchen when we sold our house in August. I'm just about ready to begin showing my new "Autum Cottage". You continue to inspire me.

  26. This was the first thing I fell in love with when I met you (or your blog) Kathleen. I love this space and would find it hard not to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner out there : )and then a long nap twice a day!

    Well your lawn may be browning but your porch is still awesome! We don't get rainfall to speak of here in my part of Idaho. We do sometime have very wet Springs, but we rely on the snow-pack over winter to fill the reservoirs to water our properties. Thankfully, we had enough snow the past several winters to fill them. That is the only reason my grass is still green, because I don't know when we have had a hotter Summer. Has it been hotter than usual for you in your part of Oregon?
    I hope your week is filled with lovely Fall days Kathleen.
    hugs from here...

  33. I love all of your pretty things! I really like the statues and that white-rusty birdcage. It's so pretty with an unusual shape, love, love!

  34. Thanks for sharing your porch. I really like your use of birdhouses and old pieces. I enjoy building church birdhouses and am looking for ways to photograph them for business. Your use of pedestals, posts, columns as bases are helpful to me. Your porch looks very comfortable.
