{Fall's Front Step}

Now, I say fall very loosely, considering we haven't had a drop of rain around these parts for the better part of a couple months and it was 21 degrees yesterday.
However, I have my fall door all set up to enjoy our spring weather.
{my little "welcome to my doorstep" vignette}
Wish I could tell you what kind of plant that is, but all I'm concerned about is that fact that I haven't killed it yet.  The huge hurricane glass I've had for years, but up until it's recent rescue, it had been behind my television set (LONG story).  It came out of hiding back in September and, with the help of my MIL, found nice new home (complete with a huge LED candle) on the front step.
I've had this frame lying around for a while, and I thought to myself, "What a great cheap way to keep things fresh.  I can have a different graphic for all kinds of different seasons and occasions!".  So I went to spray paint it and then promptly ran out of spray paint.  You can't really tell from the photo, but it's got a sort of distressed, vintage feel about it. 
Hoorah for running out of spray paint. 
And you also can't see, but if you were to turn around that little (fake) pumpkin on the left, there would be a lovely set of teeth marks.....from my two-year-old....because that's what she does.
{my wreath}
I made this guy a few years back from a wicker wreath form and whole bunch of loose florals from Walmart.
Nothing astounding, but just it's just perfect!
And I think I put this post up just in time for real fall to arrive....*le sigh*
How many more months until summer?

Looks great! Sounds like your Fall weather is a lot different than ours!
So, now for the 'long' story about that hurricane, please ;)
