PICK YOUR FAVORITE FALL PORCH---RESULTS

Thank you!
Thank you!
Thank you for playing along!!

So---
WHO voted for WHAT?
First off, let me just say that I am
SO PROUD OF YOU GIRLS
that have a hard time picking 
JUST ONE!
You did good!
Very, very good!

Here we go:
The TOP winner had almost double the 
votes of #2 and #3.

FIRST PLACE
goes to 
OLD STONY (#4).
It won hands down!
I think there is character and charm and a 
sense of solid home-place here.
Plain and simple with a bit of glitz with the
TWO GOLD PUMPKINS.
SECOND PLACE 
goes to
NOT CORNY AT ALL (#6)

I thought this one looked like someone
might actually live there.
Corn stalks are just a little wonky
like the wind blew them around,
urns are tipsy-tilt a bit
and it looks family-friendly, doesn't it?
source unknown
Coming in a 
CLOSE THIRD
LEAFY WREATHY  (#3)
It is fun for me to see 
what you all pick...
a lot of times 
I know you well enough from your blog
to know which one will strike your fancy.
Sometimes, though, you fool me.

Ummm...
speaking of fool...
How about the someone that made these for
a place like 
WALMART?
Personally, I have always thought
ASIA  should look like AFRICA...
but that is just my personal opinion.

Looks like someone slept through 
GEOGRAPHY CLASS
to me!
Have a great Monday.

Come back tomorrow-
I might have a sweet little giveaway for you!
Maybe---if you are good----maybe

your photo name

  7. Didn't play... but I like "Old Stony" too.

    It looks like it could be an old cottage/house doorway. And I am really, really, really into old cottages/houses these days. :-)

    Old, but loved and taken care of. Hey, sounds like me!!!! ,-))))

  9. I would be thrilled with any one of those porches Diana!!! And I have to tell you what a kick I get out of your Walmart pics! ( Although Walmart does owe me a few laughs since they do have most of our money!!!)
    Wishing you a wonderful Monday!
    XO Barbara

  11. I hope you have a nice day and that is funny about the t-shirt!

  12. I guess I'm in the minority about the porches. Old stoney did remind me of England. That t-shirt is a riot! Sure hope kids don't fall for that one! I can always count on a laugh from you! xo ♥

  18. Hooray!!!! I picked #4. Yes, it does just look substantial and inviting. Blessings to you my sweet friend! Robbin

  19. I have a stone front house, I picked #3, because I love that white and black classic look. I guess the grass is always greener isn't it! Gotta love Walmart! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I live the third place, the best, but it's a good thing we all have different tastes or all our porches would look the same. I always have grand ideas to decorate the porch for Fall, but usually I end up with a few pumpkins and a wreath! LOL!

    Nice post.

    hugs

  21. I can't belive I missed out on picking a porch :( Oh well, you know me....I have a hard time picking just one! :) I love the three that were featured - each one is unique and truly beautiful.

    Happy Monday, my friend. Love to you!

  22. sorry I missed the vote! But yes the stone entry is beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I missed the vote too! Lots of fun porches to look at. I love how creative people get. Trying to get caught up on visiting blogs. Thanks for your sweet visit Diana. xo

  24. Just goes to show that I do have a rare taste. Mine probably did not even get an honorable mention. O, well, all in fun.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Boo!!! #4 would have been my 2nd choice...but oh well...better luck next time...HA!! My decorating skills will just consist of a pumpkin on the front porch and then that pumpkin will head into the kitchen after halloween to be made into a pie. Yep, I can taste it right now.

  26. Always interesting to see the results! :)

  29. Sure do love # 4 (my personal pick) also besides the stone and gold pumpkins how about that gorgeous Lavender hued painted door?

    ReplyDelete
  30. I liked the first two as well - sure is a lot of fun doing this. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yay! I won! Well, the porch I liked best did! This is a fun thing and I know you have to go searching for things for us to pick! Now that Tshirt is a hoot! Can you believe it? :)
    Glad you're back, I've missed you.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  32. Hi! Congratulations to the winners! Afraid no geography stuck with me either! I didn't get around to commenting on yesterday's blog but you sure have an energetic granddaughter! Does she take after you? Did they win the game?? Nancy

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yay! The one I picked won! (I think I'm of the age where I've seen it all before and now I'm seeing it again, ie: cornstalks, too many wreaths, too much unkjay on the orchpay)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Must have missed that fun post picking the porches but I would have gone for the first one anyways!! All gorgeous! Walmart is too funny, and sometimes my second home for how many times I am there!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Missed the porch vote but those would have been my choices, too! It is all in the details, isn't it? Glad to see you back!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Ha-ha on the shirt!! Not surprising, though. I would have chosen Old Stony also. One of the reasons I'm so fond of Yorkshire. Of course, I'm not the one who had to pick all that rock!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm stumped...many of the products at Walmart state made in China....really?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh. That. Shirt. ... Words fail me.

    So glad Old Stony won - it was my favorite!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Love the post - I liked the Orange door for Halloween, would have to re-paint it after. Fun fun fun.
    You never know what your going to find at that store.
    Have a great week.
    Hugs,
    Mary

  40. I can always count on you for a laugh ..I love these! Always very hard to pick just one. I hope you are having a good evening .

    ReplyDelete
  41. Well, darn! Looks like my favorite wasn't even close, oh, well! I have a feeling that t-shirt will be going on clearance at Walmart. Reminds me of a t-shirt I saw years ago in Copper Harbor. Seems like the makers of the shirts liked the name "Cooper Harbor" better! They were on clearance, don't think they sold any!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I did like #4, but I still liked the one I picked. The ly were all pretty and if someone would have came over and decorated my front porch, I'd would have been thrilled with any theme. :)
    That shirt....there are no words...just wow! It amazes me how dumb people are. Only at Wal-Mart! Sheesh!

    Have a delightful week, Diana!
    Hugs, Amy

  46. That was my vote, too! I think I need that shirt just so I can hear people's reaction :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. SO happy it's old stony!

    thank you for the smiles! :) ♥

  48. Dang, I missed that contest! Gotta agree with the winner, though. And that shirt! omg, that is just crazy (but hilarious and sad at the same time)!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I missed the vote but I do like the first because of it's simplicity.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Ahhhh I missed this one. I know I will finally get to it as I go through my emails though. I love that T-Shirt...haha It will become a collectors item.
