Fall Front Steps 2019

Migonis Home’s 2019 Fall Front Steps are decked out with all the fall mums and pumpkins.

This year I mixed some regular orange pumpkins in with the heirloom pumpkins to give a more vibrant look than I’ve done in the past. I love the way it turned out and it always feels so welcoming when we drive up!

The front wreath was one I whipped up in 10 minutes. I had a very large grapevine wreath I got about five years ago at Hobby Lobby (similar to this one) and it’s been great to switch up. I had a wreath made out of these leaves that I found on Freecycle but the size looked so teeny on our front door so I just took all the leaves off of it and popped them into this wreath. I found a few great fall wreaths that’ll last you till Thanksgiving:

Autumn Large Leaf Accent 20" Polyester Wreath

Leaf Wreath

Bittersweet on Natural Twig Base 20" Styrofoam Wreath

Bittersweet Wreath

Preserved Autumn 20" Artichokes Wreath

Preserved Artichoke Wreath

14 House Problems That Don’t Require a General Contractor

As most homeowners are well aware, problems can strike a house suddenly and without warning: a leaky roof or a fallen tree, a burst pipe in the basement or a boiler that conks out during a cold snap. But there is no need to panic! Many common household issues can be dealt with easily and quickly, either DIY or by calling in a handyman or specialized contractor. Start by assessing the damage and figuring out how extensive the repairs are going to be. You may be able to tackle some smaller jobs, including plumbing, electrical work, landscaping, and interior repairs, on your own. More extensive renovations, however, may require a general contractor to oversee the job. But the common repairs that follow typically do not require calling in the big guns.
