~Whites of the Season~

As the end of October is upon us and the weather is getting colder I'm drawn to the whites of the season.  Pumpkins, gourds and Mums are some of my favorites to decorate with outdoors.  The small porch in front of the Garden House is kept simple with some of these whites mixed among my weathered grey furniture and galvanized items.  Enjoy! xoxo K.

I love all the colors of the Mums you see at the Garden Centers, but every year I leave with white ones for my own home.

I also have a weakness for white pumpkins, although I have really enjoyed the greenish grey ones as well this year.  I love how this one has nubby areas on it.

  1. Me too. We just went to ikea to get new white slipcovers for our ektorp sofas since they were on sale and we bought the natural beige too for autumn. Yours inspired me. They are nice for a change.

  12. This is my kinda fall look, Kathleen! Like you, I appreciate the autumn colors of orange, red, rust at the garden center (and on my trees) - but gotta have WHITE for our homes, right?
    Love this vignette, especially how you mixed with the grays.

  18. Wow!
    The second to last picture is my favorite. If I had the good fortune to live there I would probably get nothing done as I would sit in that chair all day :). I love the white pumpkins as well. My kids are never surprised when I choose those over the orange ones. Enjoy your day.
