Simple Fall Front Porch

We've had a lot of rainy and windy weather over here, so sharing our Fall front porch has been a bit of a challenge. I did manage a few photos on a beautiful (though very breezy) afternoon this past week.
I've kept it simple, just adding a little cozy charm with things I already had around here, including some rust, rocks and a little whimsy : )

{My nearly 3-year-old door mat is looking pretty worn, but I'm not spending money on a new one just now. I thought I'd try just turning it over to the natural colored reverse side. New look without spending any money-you know I like that!}

The old chair stays on the front porch year round. I added the rusted out galvanized tub. This old tub has served a lot of purposes over many years, and several homes. I think I originally had flowers planted in it 'way back when'. More recently it has served as a place to coil up the garden hose. 

The large rustic wood piece (what is that thing, anyway?) was a roadside find several months ago. 

The chunky candle in the old pickle jar is a regular around here, no matter the season. An upturned galvanized farm bucket serves as a perfectly simple candle stand.

If you've ever had any email correspondence with me, you know that Nuthouse is my email address. It's an old family joke that just "stuck". My sister bought us this sign many years ago, and I put it out every Fall.

Another chunky candle in an old jar, some pine cones and leaves  sit inside a rustic old farm basket on the porch steps. 

My simple Fall wreath started with the basic grapevine wreath that I use for every season. 
I attached the wooden initial with a few spots of hot glue and added a pretty green and brown ribbon (repurposed many times over) and a tiny garland made from Fall oak leaves we used for decor at my daughter's Autumn wedding two years ago.

Simple and rustic seems to be the Fall theme over here this year. I guess I'm just in the mood to keep things easy and low-key and not spend any money {smile}.

I'm sure glad you stopped by for a little visit to our Fall front porch, friends!
