Shut the Front Door!




It was sunny this morning
but now it's gray 
with a little rain
mixed in here and there.

Wanted to share 
some of the outside scenes
here at the Polohouse.








Oops. Should have hidden the orange twine there holding the cornstalks!

















So sorry, 
but I haven't been online much lately.

Took on a full time design job working
for a friend who just bought
a French-style country house
and I am helping her to decorate it!

Will share some pics on that 
and the little fall scene
on my back porch next time.

See you soon!



See you soon friend! xoxoxoxox

Love your outside fall goodies. I was thinking about getting some stalks and tying them to our columns out front, too. Great minds think alike. ha ha. I can't wait to see the job you are working on.

Thanks for sharing and hugs, FABBY

I so enjoyed seeing your outside fall decor. Just as pretty as I would have expected.

Do you remember where you got the large black urn? We are looking for some for our church.

Your home looks amazing all done up for fall. I got to make this comment finally, looks like your problem has been solved. I hope it stays that way. Thanks, Richard from My old Historic House.

Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads said...

All of your autumn decorations are so pretty. Love that wheelbarrow with the feed sack hanging out of it! We had some corn stalks in the garden in August. Leo burned them before I could save a few for decorating!

Linda said...

Your home is so beautiful, Alison...and I love all the fall decorations! Looking forward to hearing more about the design work!

Can't wait to see what you are working on.

Savvy Seasons said...

Oh, Allison, what a beautiful setting. Sigh... You are so blessed to live amongst such beauty. Your porch looks gorgeous. I love the corn husks and fall mums, very warm and inviting!

Have a wonderful weekend! XO ~Liz

Becca said...

Alison, if you see some strange "bottle" blonde lurking outside of your front entry and taking pictures and notes, don't worry, it's just me! LOL. Even your front entry belongs in a magazine ... the touches of Fall are festive and gorgeous! Love seeing your stunning grounds, too. And, okay, who get to rake or blow all the pretty leaves I see on your driveway? Have fun decorating ... can't wait to see pics. xo

A Hint of Home said...

Your entryway is beautiful! Loved looking at all your Fall decor!

Cozy Home Scenes said...

Hi Alison. Decorating your friend's house sounds like a lot of fun! Even better that you are getting paid for it. Can't wait to see the pictures.

In the meantime, your outdoor pictures are wonderful to enjoy. I love the horse in the flowers, but especially appreciate how you used all the fall colors instead of just orange.


Have a wonderful weekend Alison!

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

Alison, I hope you share photos of your friend's house. Your exterior autumn decor is divine! Very lovely. :D

Carolyn@SweetChaos said...

Well, of course I've always loved your house. But, it looks absolutely spectacular decked out for Fall. Oh, and I love the "little" house you're helping to decorate :)
