Fall on the Sunporch

Just a few overdue pics from the sunporch for Fall...

Making use of the bittersweet and some deer antlers.

These next few are some of my fave pics from this season.
Just look at the face of complete innocence...

now wait a minute, girlie!

Here's the other one.

 I always have fun mixing and matching the quilts and pillows for a new look each year. 

 If you'd like to see what I did last year,
 then here are some pics from last year's porch.

 Being away from home for almost a week, I feel like I'm trying to play catch up. There are so many things I wanted to do this Fall, but taking care of my sweetie has been my top priority. We saw a specialist in St. Louis last week for his inner ear, vertigo, and hearing loss. This doctor told us more in 5 minutes than we had been given in months and months of doctors visits and therapy. Hubbs is on a medication regimen at the moment, but we have options for down the road...much more hope and confidence for recovery than we were having before. Anyway, hope you enjoyed the photos from this week on the sunporch. favorite season for decorating out here.

  3. Oh Debra, this is the post I have been waiting for... I LOVE your sunporch!... and I LOVE it the very best in Autumn... looks like your kitty does too, so cute!... everything is so cozy and welcoming... I honestly would just sit out there ALL day long... as long as I had a nice cup of coffee by my side and I would just daydream away on those sweet quilts and pillows... kitty kisses to both of your little babies!... xoxo Julie Marie

  4. I love when you post pictures of your sunroom, they are always inspiring! I have wicker furniture in our guest cottage at the lake and it could use a fresh quilts and pillows.

    Your kitty is darling...and such a ham! Or maybe he is just trying to get at that picture of the crow!

    I hope your husband starts to feel better soon. And I'm glad you got some answers.


  5. Debra I am so glad you found a doctor that can help your husband.So frustrating when you don't know what is going on and what is causing it!

  6. Debra, I love everything about your sunporch! You have the most wonderful accents; and you've only enhanced them with your fall decor. I don't think I could ever leave this space!

  7. I always love your porch in any season Debra. Your choice of golds and yellows this fall give it a bright warm pop of colour. Beautiful! Blessings, Pamela

    Keep your chin up, and your right- he is your priority.


  13. I am such a fan of Fall decorating!! The warm and cozy look of your sun porch is so inviting. Makes me want to snuggle up in one of the chairs with a cup of tea and a good magazine!!
    Cheers, gee

  20. I love how you redecorate your sunroom seasonly! Fall is my fave! sorry to hear about your hubby's ear difficulties, I know from personal experience how frustrating that is! We are just beginning to feel cooler temps here in Georgia, YAY!

  21. What a gorgeous space and scrumptious decor. I particularly like the furry model. Hope your husband is feeling much better soon. :)

  22. It all looks so beautiful Debra! :-)

  23. Oh, how I love your sunroom all dressed for Fall....and the fur ball look of...'who me?'

  24. Im dying over how absolutely beautiful everything is, a dream come true! :D


  25. Great vignettes in the sunroom. Love the birdcages and all the goodies on the the shelves.

  26. I wish I could transport your sunporch with all the lovely autumn goodness to 911! The kitties would have lots of squirrels to watch from their perches. Deal?

    I'm so glad to hear your husband got good news from the doc.

  27. Your porch is so welcoming. I love the orange tea pot.

    Praying for a full recovery for your husband.

    ps. I miss our days living in MN where we could go out a pick bittersweet.

  28. Debra,
    Oh, dear friend, I adore the Fall look on your porch!!! All the traditional black, white, and orange...yet so subtly displayed. Your quilts add such softness and comfort in the space! Your kitty's antics are adorable. Makes me think of the saying, "A home is NOT a home without a cat"!!! Glad to hear you are encouraged with the news of Hubbs condition. Continued prayers coming your way.

  29. What a delicious post! You have such a rich way of layering your decor. Love every nook and cranny. Simply divine. -Al

  30. Love,love love your sunporch!. The pictures of the cat made laugh out loud. Cats add so much to a home including excitement.
    I have a really small sun porch and your pictures gave me some ideas!

  31. It gets frustrating, not getting any answers, doesn't it. So glad your hubby was able to get help from this doctor. Hopefully things will get better.

    I loved these photos and wanted to climb inside them! I especially like the first one that has the curious tabby cat. Beautiful photos!!

  32. Hello dear Debra, I'm not so much into fall colors but I just love how you decorated your sunporch. You've combined so many pretty elements and it turned out very cozy. I'd feel very comfortable sitting there. The Butterscotch Wafers tin is awesome.

    I'm glad to hear that the specialist could give you and your hubby some answers and hope for recovery.

    Take care, dear friend!
    Hugs to you,

  33. Hoping your hubby gets that problem under control... I suffer from vertigo and it is miserable. Debra, I went to PT and they showed me an easy way to get rid of vertigo.... works every time. I have shared this technique with so many others and it works for them too!!!
    If you would like to e-mail me I'll share the simple exercise with you...
    Now about your porch... It is so detailed and full of beautiful fall touches. I love yellow... and I think you added the perfect amount of pretty golden yellow to make your porch look so warm!!!

  34. Good Morning Debra
    I Love your Sun Porch and I think I am in Love with You Kitty! What a Sweet Face! They always Manage to Bring a Smile to our Faces don't they.
    I hope that having Questions answered brings you some relief with your Dear Husband. Many Blessing to You Both.

  39. Deborah I love your sun porch. I could spend all day out there. My mom has one and we literally spend almost our entire visit in hers. The boys like sleeping out there. Thanx for partying at THT!

  40. I love all of your festive Fall decor. It looks so nice out there. Your cat had me laughing! She looked like she was trying to just blend in with everything in the first pic and then she just couldn't stay still one more minute! Ha! So sorry to hear that your husband has been ill. Hopefully, he will get back to normal soon.

  41. LOVE~ I'd never leave! The quilt, pillow, tins, birdcage...all of it and especially the kitties :)

  42. Your fall decor is very pretty. The cat pictures are the cutest!!!

  43. I adore the sunroom! All the best to your husband -- that inner ear problem can be difficult.

  44. wow!! what a great room
    look at all that sunshine, and white wicker, and bright decorating for Fall.
    sooo fun!!

    thanks for sharing!


  45. Hi Debra... you knew I would be back to visit your gorgeous sunporch!... looks like kitties are back too... sooo gorgeous!... thanks for hosting this fun day... xoxo Julie Marie

  46. Glad that your hubby is on the mend. I love your sunporch with all the great autumn decorations, and what a beautiful feline assistant you had--very photogenic as well :)

  47. LOL it's all beautiful but your kitty makes it real

    Since I put up cornstalks a few weeks ago ( that included CORN ) I only need to view my cat's posture as she sits at the windowsill to know whether a neighborhood squirrel is outside enjoying some corn kernals.

    He comes and gets a few, travels up the steps to sit at the top and eats his feast.

    She on the other hand goes beserk :)

  48. You are so lucky to have such a lovely bright and sunshine-y place to not only decorate, but to sit and enjoy as well Debra! We are always delighted with your talented ideas :)

    We'll be saying a prayer for you and your hubby...have faith!
    Karla & Karrie

  49. Had to laugh out loud at "Wait just a minute, girlie". Your kitty is so cute. It seems that kitties always want to be part of the display, too, especially if it's near a window. Your sunroom is so bright and pretty. Cute crows. I hope your husband is feeling better soon.

  52. Oh Debra, kitty looks a bit mischieveous. Can't blame him for wanting to check out your wonderful decor. Love all of the vintage touches! The old tins, the chenille pumpkin, the owl in the cage, and your quilts give it all a cozy feel. Thanks so much for sharing with SYC. Sure hope hubby gets better soon! That vertigo is bad. My FIL had it a few years ago but finally did get relief.

  53. It looks lovely Debra. I always love your white squirrel. I like the owl in the birdcage too. Thanks for joining me at HSH!
