I am playing along with The Inspired Room's Fall Porches on Parade party...otherwise known as a Drive-By Tour. I had fun driving around checking out some front porches all decked out for fall and halloween.
And there's an announcement at the end of my post today. Keep going all the way to the bottom because it involves FREE STUFF!
Onto our drive-by tour...
I love the classic look of this front porch.
And these guys love their pumpkins!
And this front entrance is so beautiful that they could have hung up a sack of potatoes and I still would have taken a picture.
And some great ideas from a good friend. Thanks Maggie!
And these folks called the cops when they saw me outside with my camera. KIDDING! They're good friends too. I love their huge mums!
And this beautiful plaque on the front porch.
This one is just too much fun! This family knows how to do halloween up right!
Now for my announcement
If you read the Nesting Place, you know that the Nester is planning a series of giveaways to encourage her readers to buy some Christmas gifts from small businesses this year rather than buying everything from Target and Macy's. There are so many incredibly talented women who make and sell wonderful products.
When I read Nester's announcement, I got so excited about the idea that I joined up with her and will be running a series of giveaways from some of my favorite Etsy sellers. I am really passionate about trying to support women who are making wonderful products and trying to support their families in the process. This seemed like such a fantastic way to get some of them exposure as the Christmas shopping season begins. I'm sure many of us will be cutting back this year and this is a wonderful way to still give a truly thoughtful gift.
My first giveaway will be tomorrow and here's a hint...It's absolutely CHARMING!!!
Stop back tomorrow to throw your name into the hat and keep checking back because I have LOTS of good stuff lined up for the next few weeks.
