Simple and charming Autumn Greenhouse

I am a big fan of simple. 


Simple charm. Simple seasonal touches and of course... simple autumn. 




When I was working on my book last year, I styled the house, the cottage, the outdoors and even some table settings. 
And when it came to seasonal decor for autumn and Christmas, 
And I focused on simple.


Like hydrangeas in the sink,
pumpkins in a wheelbarrow
and maybe a simple yet charming pumpkin patch. 
I am excited to be joining my friends for a fun tour today- thanks to 
The Handmade Home for organizing!


I love all things natural especially for fall. 
 Like wheat bundles and berry dotted branches and lots of fresh heirloom pumpkins. 
And while I was playing with those pumpkins, something that reminded me of a stop at a pumpkin farm inspired me. 



With that in mind- 
I might have loaded up on a bevy of pumpkins in all shapes sizes and colors for the porches 
and mantels.
And over by the greenhouse, it was all about creating a charming spot that felt  like a pumpkin patch. With pumpkins lining the pea gravel path - it invites you to meander on down towards the greenhouse while looking for your perfect one for carving.
After the season is over- those pumpkins are perfect for
drying seeds to plant or for sharing with
animal friends. We place them out for the deer that wander through the property.


 An old wheelbarrow filled with pumpkins loads up the treasures of the day to cart home.
And in my book you can see a peek of a certain beach bike. 



And instead of blooms... it is a beach bike and pumpkins.
This is one of the autumn photos that made the cut for print.

And don't miss any of the gorgeous and autumn tours that my friends are sharing 
on their blogs today





Happy Monday everyone!

  5. Love the look of the green house, Courtney you have inspired me to do something with our "hill" out back. I think I am going to arrange a white fence out there around the hill and give pumpkins a chance to grow for next fall! I've been thinking of what I wanted to do, when I saw the pea gravel walk heading up to your greenhouse the light bulb went on! Thank you for sharing all your sweet, beautiful ideas with us. Happy Fall.......Jody
