Wagons and Wheelbarrows for Fall

Hi Friends and Happy Weekend!

I've been working on my front porch today getting it ready for Fall, and I really really wanted to bring out one of the goat carts for display, but I have hesitations because we live on a street with lots of school traffic. I've had things disappear from front porches before, so I thought I'd share a couple of peeks of what I'm doing on the porch, then share some pics from some of my previous cart and wagon fall
 displays.






I've had fun this last year decorating this spot.
The old metal gate behind the desk 
makes a great backdrop for seasonal displays.



These are some pics from about 10 years ago when I first found this reproduction goat cart and filled it up with pumpkins and leaves and real bittersweet.

This was from the last house we lived in before I painted the wagon French Gray. It looked really pretty during the fall when it was black, but not so seasonally aesthetic during the rest of the year.    

I can't believe I haven't gotten around to sharing the goat cart that I first talked about weeks ago. After searching through Pinterest for ideas, I put it together with mums, vines, and all kinds of white pumpkins. And then the landscape guys showed up and it all went kaput. So this is what I've had in my Garden Room since. The mums went back to the front porch and I substituted moss orbs and faux pumpkins for the real ones. So much for a fun display on the front porch. At least I've been able to enjoy it here in the Garden Room.





I've given up on trying to impress anyone with a lovely Fall display out front. Right now I'm just trying to keep a path to the front door that isn't covered in mud and rocks. Plus the guys end up leaving their tools, gloves, and other paraphernalia strewn across the porch.The back porch isn't much better. leaves, leaves, and more leaves. Plus, we're now having freezing temps overnight for the rest of the week. Goodbye lovely ferns. We've had Fall for only a week.




The pillows on my church pew tend to be traded around every few weeks. 
The Indigo ticking pillows are my go-to for most seasons, since they go with almost
everything and the brown floral ones are my fave Fall accessories.




Last week when I put together my vintage birdcage display
 I had to set the lantern somewhere.
 It ended up here on the pew, and well... it's still here.




My little "what not" shelf has some Fall odds and ends. 
I share this at the risk of being labeled with "Granny Decor". 
sorry, I collect small things.
This week I'll let the Turkeys run free!




I  have a lot of vintage Thanksgiving postcards, but none that are really Fallish. I chose this one that was closest to an Autumn scene. It's of Ripon Cathedral in North Yorkshire, England and was part of a series of Tuck Postcards, English Cathedrals, dating from 1910. 





This postcard reminded me...

Hubby and I love a good mystery, and if it's a British mystery all the better. We're big BritBox fans. Our latest binge was a great period series that's been around for a while, The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher that is available on Amazon. really, really good. I hate to recommend TV or movies, but this one is a 5 star series and absolutely authentic... sets, costumes, scenery. 



                                                           Have a fun rest of the week!



Hope to see you Monday evening!

I've grabbed some boxes for height and a piece of burlap for a base, 
so I'll get started soon. But for now let's take a look 
at some beautiful ideas for the Fall Porch and Garden.





Pinterest has been around for awhile, and one of the downfalls is that many of the photos no longer have the original source. There are a lot of bogus sites out there getting traffic and making money off blogger's photos, mine included. So unless I find the original source I won't be giving the fake sites credit. If you recognize any of the photo sources please let me know and I'll share it. 

Here are some of my wheelbarrow,
 wagon and goat cart favorites.

Pumpkin Wheelbarrow Display  Green and cream pumpkins are well-suited for early fall, when summer still lingers. Assemble the gourds in a wooden wheelbarrow, adding berry vines for extra color and stacking pumpkins to give height to the tableau. As the season progresses, incorporate more orange and yellow gourds to capture the changing landscape of autumn.

One thing I noticed is that most of these pics have pumpkins/gourds, mums/sunflowers, and some sort of vines incorporated in the mix; Either Bittersweet or Grapevine. I found some mums and pumpkins last week, so I'm off to dig in my stash and try to see what I can come up with. Have a great weekend!

You can see most of these pics on my Pinterest Boards,





Hope to see you Monday Evening for All About Home.

  3. What a fabulous compilation of carts/wheelbarrows. I know myself, I hesitate to use Pin photos, because it is way to hard to find the source of some! You did them all justice, and I always loved your little goat cart...so cute, no matter what you put in it!

  6. Oh, I'm so in love with the idea of Fall wagons and wheelbarrows! Maybe because they remind me of fairytales or maybe because they look enchanting and magical on their own. Either way, I love your selection here. Pinterest is definitely a never ending source of wonderful ideas.
