Met Monday - Fall Display in Garage

Today I'm participating in Met Monday over at Between Naps on the Porch. I try to change the display in my garage for each season. Because the way our house is laid out, most guests come in through the garage. The last time I changed it was July 4th, so with Fall just around the corner I changed it to reflect Autumn, which arrives on Tuesday. I love everything about Fall...the wonderful colors of reds, oranges, greens...the leaves falling and changing colors...trips to the mountains...the smell of leaves burning...all the festivals in small towns...temperatures falling...warm sweaters and socks....and a fire in the fireplace. I can hardly wait!!! Please visit Susan to see how everyone is changing things around their homes. You can get some wonderful ideas. I know I do!

Met Monday - Fall Front Door

I put some of my fall items on my front porch this weekend. I'm not finished yet, but this is a start. I got the arrangement that is on my front door at Michael's with my 50 percent off coupon, so it wasn't too bad. I also got the fake mums there too. I'm really tired of trying to keep the real ones alive and they don't seem to last that long, so I chose the fake ones. I hope they don't look too bad plus you really can't tell from the road. The garland has orange lights in it and it's really pretty at night. I know it probably sounds kinda tacky, but it really is pretty. I'm off work tomorrow, so I'll probably be shopping for some great buys. Also I hope everyone has a Happy and Safe Labor Day! For more Met Monday, please visit Between Naps on the Porch.

Outdoor Wednesday - Neighborhood Dogs

This is what I see when I step outside my house. The neighborhood dogs. I love them, because they're not mine. Just like other peoples can feed them, play with them and send them back home. They live at the three houses across the street, but you would think that they are all brothers and sisters. One of the boxers - Alex lives in one house, the other boxer - Mac, lives in the other house and the two chihuahuas - George (the brown one) and Bella (the black one) lives in the third house. They all play together all day. So when you are outside, they all come running over expected to be petted and fed. Of course, I do that. I feed them alot! They all line up like soldiers and wait for their treat. They just roam from house to house and everyone takes care of them. They are a great asset to the neighborhood, because they know all of the cars and they will let you know when a strange car is coming. They are all very harmless, but they do scare off any unwanted visitors, because they look mean, especially the boxers. What is lurking outside your front door?
