A simple change...summer to fall...& a look at our new front stoop!

 Hi there friends...Happy Weekend!
Yesterday I made a quick change to the hanging basket on my front door. 
I took it from summer to fall!
 I had everything on hand in my storage room.

 This year I used all natural elements...this change only took me a about 10 minutes and I love the way it turned out!
 In this next photo you get a glimpse of how it looked all summer... simply filled with lavender....
also take a look at how our front stoop looked because it looks TOTALLY different now!
 We had flagstone added to the landing and steps.
 What a difference it makes!! 
We had our walk redone a few years ago in stamped concrete and they used an overlay on our stoop and stairs to match. With the winters we have had the last few years it caused it to chip...that won't happen anymore!
 LOVE LOVE the way it turned out!

 They added it along the sides too for a finished look.
 I chose to use solid pieces on the steps.
 Thanks so much for stopping by...have a great weekend!
I'm off to buy some mums and pumpkins!

Martina,
The new flagstones and solid steps look fantastic. They really dress up your entry and go so well with your Fall basket of naturals.

Welcome to fall! Your door hanging is lovely. Here in north Florida the fall comes late. I cannot wait for cooler weather!

Happy fall.

Your stoop looks great, Martina! I love stone on a house. Your basket is very Fall welcoming and it's great you were able to use what you had on hand. I hope to get my Fall stuff out this weekend.
