It was a gorgeous day in Portland and I ventured out for my Fall Drive By! Is there anything more lovely that a fall day? Now, tell me. Does that door (above) look like a chalkboard door to you? I think I see words around the top of the round window! Isn’t that the coolest idea EVER? A chalkboard door for your front entry? I love that.
I found a few front doors with fall decor as well as front yards all decked out, so I’ll share a bit what I saw. This was my least daring drive by ever. It was pretty mellow! No one was outside! I don’t know why, I didn’t have to duck into bushes or dive over fences or anything. I just snapped away without risking life or limb. The other thing about this drive by is I didn’t find a ton of over the top gorgeous fall front decor. I saw a lot of scary things, but I was hoping to find more urns and pumpkins and leaf decorations. Didn’t see much of that!
I thought this entry was so pretty. It was even prettier in real life.
Yikes. Creepy skeletons. Something unwelcoming about this.
Probably what they were going for, though.
A scary Halloween house.
Darn, you can tell I was in the car for this photo! The corner got cut off. Sorry, just noticed that.
This home had such pretty landscaping. The front porch looked so pretty with the mums and pumpkins lining the steps. And I loved all their grasses and landscaping along that wall.
This house went all out from the graveyard out front to a giant man-eating spider on the roof.
My parents lived here for a number of years and
are responsible for its cute remodel.
I always love snapping a picture of it in Fall.
This was actually from last year but I still like it!
Alrighty, there you go! Another drive by!
And now, you may join me and link up your own drive by! And of course, check out the amazing front porches and fall yard decor others have found to share!
Mr. Linky Directions:
If you want to link up, here is what you do. You can link up any time through Halloween.
1) On your blog, you let your friends know you are participating in The Inspired Room’s Fall Drive By by linking to this post or blog right in your post. 2) Then you get the link to your specific drive by post (not to your general blog because it makes it hard to find your post in a week or two). 3) Put that link (let me know if you need help finding the right link) on the Mr. Linky form below. 4) I do have to remove links that do not follow these instructions…I want to make this FUN for readers!
If you had a link here and it is not longer visible, it probably means I had to DELETE it because it went to a home page and not to the correct post.
Enjoy all the ideas!
