Fall Nesting On The Coast

I'm seating here with my laptop and watching the evening news and I just about fell out of my chair when I heard that our temps will be in the 60's next week...it's really FALL here Y'ALL!!!! I'm so excited about our lower temps and it has really put me into a FALL NESTING mood...how about you? I'm sure a lot of you are way ahead of me and that's okay...I will give it my best and catch up with you soon...watch out here I come! When I pulled out my fall wreath from last year something just didn't click and I knew right then that I wanted something NEW and FRESH for this year...only one problem...I had promised myself that I would not spend any money on NEW fall decor and I didn't. Do you remember that wicker wall basket that I had in my beach condo? Well if you don't remember it...then go here and check it out to see how I was using it in my kitchen. Now my pantry door is hosting a fun and simple wreath that I will be sharing with you at a later date...so stay tuned. Today we will be checking out the front door and walkway...remember I shopped my house and didn't spend any moola!

Linda I know what you mean! These cooler temps finally have me in the mood to decorate for fall!! Love your basket on the door...that is very clever. I'm trying to add just a few items to my decor and hoping they are thrifty finds or dollar tree only! Thanks for the inspiration!

ClassyGal said...

Very nice basket and I love your pumpkin too!

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

YOur basket is lovely. I love your arrangement and your pumpkin in the urn is perfect. Lovely fall touches. Hugs, Marty

Judy said...

I'm lovin' this gorgeous weather (and your pretty fall basket). I'm hoping it's this nice this coming weekend when I go see my best friend in Andalusia....porch sitting, sweet tea drinkin' and lots of girl talk!

I love it! Looks fantastic and no $$ spent!
What more could you ask for? It is still warm
here, however, I have the Fall bug also!

Marla @ Always Nesting said...

Now I want to shop your house :) Good stuff, great decor, and definitely in my price range.

LisasCreativeHome said...

Great Fall Basket. I LOVE this time of year. I will be pulling out my fall decor this weekend and can't wait!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Very nice your fall basket looks great!
So glad your getting some cooler temps too.
Take Care,

Jan @ bobbypins boardwalk said...

Linda, isn't it wonderful to hear that temps will actually reflect the season (at least temporarily). Autumn is so wonderful and so short here in the midwest. I purchased a few fall items, but not too many since our season the season is so short. Pretty soon it's time to get out the Christmas decor (can't believe I even brought that up).

Linda send that cool weather on down to Orlando!! It is hard to get in the mood when it is in the 90's!


Donna said...

Isn't the cooler weather nice!! I love your basket. I put together a basket Saturday that looks nearly like the one you put together! Mine is hanging on the closet door inside my front door.

Sue said...

Love the punkin in the urn and the colorful basket! I used one on my door, as well.
You'll catch up with the fall decor- I can understand not wanting to decorate when it's been so hot for you down there. I started a few weeks ago when we got our first taste of fall. Then it got hot again! LOL
I think I'm pretty much done, will just add Halloween in a few weeks.

I am all about shopping my house. It's fun, challenging and money saving. Three good things.

You've got some pretty stuff going on in your home. I'm in TN and am loving this wonderful weather. We are possibly getting into the 40s tonight. WOW!

Becca said...

I love your basket! And, your pumpkin on the urn is a wonderful touch! Your beautiful home looks so festive! Thanks for sharing (and thanks for your kind note about my Fall mantel)! *Becca*

Pam said...

What a cutre basket. Love the feathers in it also.

Bonnie@Creative Decorating said...

Everything looks great and ready for fall!! I put mums in my pots on the porch but since it was still warm, I think I would have better off with pumpkins!! Have a great day!

Andrea at Opulent Cottage said...

Your basket is so pretty! It's nice to have a bit of fall, isn't it? I have been decorating and have some great new thrifty items -- I'll come back and join you all next Tuesday!
Cheers, Andrea

Lisa said...

Your front door is so pretty and welcoming!

Rene said...

Kudos to you for shopping the house - something I am doing more and more of. Your door looks great and I LOVE seeing a pumpkin in a container like that.

Thanks for joining the falling up party Linda.

Amy Meyer said...

I love the basket with the flowers! Very beautiful colors! Thanks for sharing!

Michelle said...

Your fall basket looks beautiful! :)

Becca said...

We had our first dose of fall weather yesterday! I am sooo ready. Your basket is very festive.

Rustique Gal said...

Hi Linda, Here in New England, we're definitely into fall! I've got pumpkin fever! I love how you repurposed your stuff to freshen up your fall decor. Enjoy the cool weather!

Julia @ Hooked on Houses said...

What a pretty front door! It really is easier to get into the mood for fall when the temps aren't so high, isn't it?

Thanks for joining my party today! :-)

Thinking Out Loud said...

Thanks for visiting my blog. I love the way you created something new with what you already had. It looks great!

Happy Fall!

Linda (Nina's Nest) said...

Hi Linda, love that basket. Especially love the pumpkin on the pine straw in the planter....so natural and so pretty! Yes, though we are Bulldogs, we yell "war Eagle" for our adult kids...we spent a lot of money at Auburn!. Linda

Blessed Mama said...

Thanks for stopping by today! I'm so glad that you did because I found yours! I am thinking about doing a wall basket full of flowers on my front door too (because my door is soooo ugly). Yours looks so good that I think I'm going to have to bite the bullet and do it after all.
Many blessings,

Low Tide High Style said...

Linda, you did a great job of shopping your house to find the perfect basket and fall decor for your front door! What a wonderful way to welcome your guests this time of year. We will go from the 90's to the 60's next week too!

Kat :)

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Linda, The basket with your Fall flowers looks wonderful! You have cooler weather there than we do in Virginia.
Hugs, Sherry

Valerie@chateaualamode.typepad.com said...

I love your basket, so pretty. I wish it were cooler on the West Coast...still in the high 90s and it's hard to believe I should be decorating for Fall.

pozypeacock said...

I agree, it is chilly. You really did a wonderful job on your basket and I like the touch of the feather in it! Especially knowing that you saved $$. Way to go!

East Coast Suburbanite said...

yay for cooler temps. I know what you mean...I'm not feeling like it's fall around here when it's still in the 80's. Love that you shopped the house. :)
thanks for stopping by

sissie said...

Hi Linda,
I just came back from the nice cool mountains to big floods here on the coast of NC!
The mountain air felt really wonderful and we are hoping for some cooler weather here.

I love your fall basket. I am going to try and make one for our door. Yours is gorgeous.


Tammy@ A Doctor in the House said...

Lookin' fab! And the best part is not a penny spent. My kind of decorating!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Like your basket! I like the "shop around the house" idea, as I said I was not buying anything new for Fall this year. I need to change out the wreath on my front door.

Sandi @the WhistleStop Cafe said...

I love the cool fall nights and your fall colors. My Favorite fall colors are Orange and Blue :-)

thanks for linking up to the FALL FESTIVAL!


Marie @ Sally Lee by the Sea said...

Looks like you're about ready for Fall ~ I just love the pumpkin sitting in the urn...it's delightful.

Have a lovely weekend.

Kendall said...

Hi just wanted to say THANK YOU for the sweet comment that you left on my blog! I just got a chance to check out yours {I'm now a follower}. :)


La Maison Reid said...

Your basket colors are gorgeous! Makes me want to roast a turkey and bake a pumpkin pie right now! Here in California, at least at my house, today is the first day of fall with a crispness to the air. We didn't really have a summer except for triple digit days just a week ago. Go figure!
Happy fall decorating!

Donna said...

I really love your basket! What a way to say "welcome" at your door! And the pumpkin in the urn is such fun idea, especially with the addition of the pine needles, love it!
