Leopards, Pumpkins, and Zebras, Oh, My!!!!

Yes, it sounds crazy, but I have all three on my front porch for fall!! I have been **tweaking** the outside of my house a little more, and somehow all three worked their way into the final product. (Final for now!) Still no new door, but I am waiting!!!  I left the topiaries alone, so don't freak out! I won't be changing those.  I adore them!!!

I actually made a new wreath for the front door and made bows to add to the railings I had already decorated. It's not that I didn't like the wreath I had....I just LOVE mesh ribbon and the leopard print ribbbon, and the sunflowers I used....what can I say?

I wish I could say I made the ADORABLE flag with the zebra print and the pumpkin, but I didn't. I'm not THAT talented!!! I saw it and immediately fell in love with it!!! Zebra print AND a pumpkin??? SERIOUSLY! What girl in her right mind could resist THAT? LOL

I'm not crazy about the mesh ribbon the way it is normally used. I wanted mine to be a little different, so I actually just cut and chopped it in chunks, and then bunched it in the middle with a pipecleaner. After that, I made a small bow out of my leopard print ribbon (can you say LOVE??) and also attached it with a pipecleaner. I love how it turned out with just the little sparkle from the mesh ribbon.

I still need to add my cornstalks behind the topiaries....that is coming as soon as I can find some that are legal to cut down!! I also will be adding a scarecrow and some hay/pumpkins out front. I have to add, however, that I am already **secretly** thinking about Christmas in my heart!! ;)

Have a great weekend!
