Autumn on the Screened Porch

Hi, Friends!  Let’s begin this week early with some Farmhouse Fall Accents! Today, I’ve joined  seven of my blogging friends to share how we add fall accents into our own individual farmhouse style!   So, are you ready to see a little bit of autumn and farmhouse on the porch?


When I think about my own farmhouse style, I can see how it correlates with my own memories.  Days spent with my grandmother on the farm, in her “real” farmhouse, and I got to live right next door!   Grandma had a small, screened-in porch with a glider – that was not vintage at the time!

Oh, the days I spent gathering up walnuts from the huge walnut trees. Grandpa loved those walnuts!  He would sit in his chair, after a hard day’s work, and crack walnuts to eat.

Walnuts and Hydrangea Milk Can Lid - Autumn on the Porch I don’t care much for them, except in cookies!!  But, don’t they look pretty with the vintage nut cracker!

I’m so glad I have a milk can from the farm.  I don’t use it all the time in my decor, but I decided to bring it on the porch for fall this year.  The lid makes a great holder for some hydrangea and seed pods.

When you live on a dairy farm, one of your main crops is usually field corn.  It’s a staple of a dairy cow’s diet!  We didn’t have corn mazes back then, but oh the fun we had chasing each other in the rows upon rows of corn.

Of course, there were always apples picked from the tree and pumpkins from the garden that were made into the most delicious pies by grandma!

Autumn is a season to slow down.  Why not dig out your family albums and reminisce a bit, like I did today!  I hope you’ve enjoyed hanging out with me today on the porch!

Thanks for the walk down memory lane. I spent summers with my Grandparents on the farm. Even as an adult I would take my children down every summer. They also spent time running through the corn fields and picking green beans. I still have that house but SAD to say the town is taking it for a road. Progress so they say!!! But I will always have my wonderful memories.

I spot that Mary & Martha tray. Love it.

I've always thought that making the porch into a 2nd or 3rd living area is an easy way to add space for the extra guests the fall brings.
