Another Fall House

Janet's front porch

I love house tours and hope you do too. I have a dear friend, Janet, who graciously let me snap away when I stopped to admire her fall decorations. Enjoy her lovely 50 year old home--it's delightful--just like her!

We both have these scare crows, but dressed differently.  I love the addition of the crow and the sunflower!  Clever girl.

What a gorgeous entryway!  Janet has totally transformed this house and it just oozes her personality.  It has been my pleasure to watch her design process, and she'll quickly add that it was all done on a tight budget too.  Can't tell from these pictures, huh?  Just wait, there's more...

This is what the dining room looks like most days--stunning, but she has a method to seat at least 16-18 people at the same table at one time!  She's a magician with her hospitality!

A pretty presentation.

She and I both have the same cloche too--she gave one to me for my birthday and I used it here.  I love the way she used a glass pedestal to raise the pumpkin up a bit and then obscured it with the vines.  Nell Hill inspiration, I think!

I especially wanted to feature her table tops--because I find them difficult at my house.  Her's always look effortlessly done and beautiful.  She got that table at a garage sale!  I want it!

This is the last table top display I'll show for now.  I honestly took a bajillion photos and had to edit myself from posting them all.  She had decorated all of her spaces so beautifully--made me go home and dig through my stuff a bit more, but to no avail. 

As always, I enjoyed my time with Janet and hope you did too.  If you dropped by unannounced, she'd smile and ask you in and then apologize for her house being messy.  Thanks for reading and come again, anytime--my house is always clean on my blog!  Robin
