HOW ‘BOUT A LITTLE PORCH HOPPIN’?

This time of the year, one of my favorite things to do is drive around and see all of the creative “porch pumpkins”.

Hi Laurie!

what fun! I love to see folks that decorate the outside of their homes for holidays. Those houses always say to me that there are happy families living there.

Have a great day Laurie!

Laurie,
Thanks for hosting! It's always a great time!
Your porch looks wonderful, and it is fun seeing the other pumpkins around. I am definitely a pumpkin fan!
Have a wonderful weekend.

Oh Laurie, love it all. I think I live in the wrong neighborhood. No decor of any kind out on most of the houses. Love yours and such wonderful inspiration. Hugs, Marty

Robin said...

So cute! I hate the fact I haven't been able to decorate my front porch this year....thanks to my spastic dog! I am hoping that Christmas will be better!

Out here in the sticks, I am the only one who decorates! Not too many neighbors are here after Labor Day!
Love your decorated porch and your neighbors, too.
Hope you get lots of goodies for Halloween! Trick or Quimper?

Laurie-Looks like lots of creative people in your neck of the woods! I read that money spent on Halloween is second only to Christmas! If you have a chance, check out my Monday post about those hogs :) Hope you have a Happy Halloween!

Gail @ Faithfulness Farm said...

What a fun post Laurie...loving all those porches. I enjoy looking at the ones in our area too :)

Blessings!

KBeau said...

Happy Halloween to you Laurie. On our cruise Team Trivia, we learned that Halloween is the second most profitable holiday in terms of spending. Only Christmas generates more revenue. I believe it.

Sue said...

I love when people decorate their yards and porches with pumpkin regalia! It's just so cheerful and fun. And your little pumpkin hottie is adorable! Hey, Good Lookin'- back to you. :-) Sue

You have a great neighborhood! I can tell you that 3 of the 16 houses on my street have any sort of fall and / or Halloween decor going on (mine would be one of them LOL) :-p Maybe i'll do my own little tour and post it on my blog so everyone can get a good laugh today! :-)
