We have been having the most fabulous time, with my folks, touring Germany and France. Europe is Exquisite this time of year!

I purchased this squirrel and acorn bowl last year and filled it with more white and jute pumpkins and moss.
Here is another look at my fall front porch, I added a few extra details...
By the way, the E on the end of welcome (on my chalkboard sign) is under the com...
I will be sharing more of our village and tales from our trips around Europe soon, but wanted to leave you with this picture of our village's castle from a hill right near our home. Enjoy your fall and I am off to gain 5 pounds eating pasta and gelato! I will update ya'll soon!
