{front porches in autumn}

On such a crisp sunny day in Tennessee…

path

 

what better way to spend your time

than go for a walk

through the autumn leaves?

Want you come and join us?

It’s our version of…

“trick or treat”.

You see, children “trick or treat” by gathering candy.

Those of us that blog, “trick or treat” by gathering

“eye candy”!

We have the most beautiful historic homes in our little town.

Let’s see how they decorate their porches for Fall.

house 3 house 3 close upNow they have the Halloween spirit!

house 2 Love this door too and the wreath hung below the window.

That window is way too beautiful to hide!

house 1hmmm… don’t know if the shoes fit,

but the porch sure does! 

Love to sit here a while and watch life pass by.

How unique!

I've been wanting to do this - but wasn't sure if you had to knock on a door and ask to take a photo? Or just click it and run :)

I love this walk with you to view the "eye candy" and yes, it certainly was eye candy to me. I love them all but the beautiful door with the wreath hung below the window was my favorite.
