thrifty thursday - front porch decor

Yes, thrifty thursday is back! I know, y'all didn't know what to do with yourselves these last couple weeks it was missing. yeah right

I thought I'd show you my recent front porch decor...thrifter style. I have a small front porch. But it's big enough to put a few things out there to decorate and make it look pretty.
I'd been on the lookout for an old, rickety chair that looked weathered & worn. And wouldn't you know it, I found one just the other day! By the way, I also got to meet a new friend I met through this blog...hi Jen :) Anyway, it looks like it's falling apart, the wood is cracked, the paint is peeling...perfect!
On the chair I have an old crate that I picked up at Gina's a while back. It was on top of my kitchen cabinets along with some other thrifty finds. But it found a new home holding some fall mums. 

And, of course, my pup and a pumpkin. Now I just need to get a Halloween wreath on my door & my porch will be done!

I love the chair so much! I have 2 very similar ones at my house in MI, they were my great grandma's! I love decorating them for the holidays! I cannot wait until my house sells and we get a place to have them with us again!

Have a great day!
