Decorating for Fall with Amazon Prime

Hello friends!  How’s your week been?  It’s already been jam packed here with baseball practice, meetings with the teachers, and planning Jordan’s classroom Halloween party.

Last night, we also had our National Night Out and all the neighbors got together with the kids and had a potluck style dinner together.  We have a great group of families in our neighborhood and one of Jordan’s favorite friends, the sweetest 4 year-old boy, lives right across the street.  He often comes over to play in the evenings or on weekends and it’s so sweet to see how fond of each other they are.

But, now that it’s just us three in this big house, I often think about downsizing to something smaller.  We really don’t need this much space.  It might be nice to be cozier in a smaller home and living in a one story would also save me from running up and down stairs all day.  This big house is also a lot to upkeep and clean!

That having been said, I do love our home and we have lived here for over 10 years.  I’ve lovingly poured my heart into creating this home (from the original floor plan to the decor) and we feel comfortable and safe here. With so much change this past year, I don’t have any plans to move in the near future, but I won’t rule it out either.

One day at a time, right?

FALL DECOR

As always, I enjoy decorating for the seasons and Fall and the holidays are always my favorite! A few Fall decor touches here and there is all it takes to cozy up your house for October and November.  I like to keep it simple by just adding some Fall pillows, pumpkins and of course, lots of faux florals!

Last weekend, I cleaned the house, then pulled out the one bin of Fall decor we had and Jordan helped me put it out on display.  She loved decorating so much that it got me even more excited about it!

I’ve had so much luck searching Amazon for cute, affordable fashion, that I headed to Amazon again to search for Fall home decor.  Several of my best home decor purchases are on Amazon, including the softest sheets ever that are a STEAL and the wingchairs I’ve had forever and often end up moving from room to room.

A newer purchase is this pretty rug that I added to our entry and living room.  It’s so soft too!  (I use these genius rug grippers to keep the rug flat and in place). Our pretty rug is laying on top of a Sisal Area Rug and I like the layered look.

I bought a couple of sets of pumpkins below to scatter around the house and also put on the stairs.  I love that they will be reusable for years to come and won’t rot when I’m not looking. 😉

I especially like neutral throw blankets because they go with everything all year round.  But, this orange spice colored cable knit throw throw is so pretty and the plaid is fun!

WREATHS

I made last year’s hydrangea wreath and ordered a new one for this year.

The new one is a 24 inch wreath with Fall leaves and berries, twigs and raffia.  I looked at tons of wreaths on Amazon before landing on this one- the style and colors are perfect and it wasn’t too expensive.

Are you decorating your house for Fall?  The very excited word on the street here is that we’re getting down to temps in the 60s next week!  Then, it will finally feel like Fall and that will definitely make for some happy Houstonians!

If you are decorating your home for more than just Fall, check out Stone & Beam for traditional meets rustic decor. For clean lines and mid-century modern, take a peek at Rivet.

I’m off to get my day started and I’ll be back tomorrow with a brand new Amazon fashion post!

Have a great day friends!

    First, let me say that I LOVE your blog, and you and your family have been in my thoughts and prayers for the past several months since like many others I had a sense that something may have been going on. I pray for all of y’all’s continued healing and peace. As an African-American woman from the south, I must say that I was taken aback by the inclusion of cotton cuttings in your fall décor post this morning. For me, seeing this image harkens back to the most horrible, vile time in our country when for 400 years enslaved black men, women, and children were bought, sold, murdered, raped, and forced against their will to pick cotton and other crops for the economic benefit of their white slaveowners. While this “décor” seems to be on trend for the past several years and granted I have even seen African-Americans include it in wreaths and such, I ask that you and others consider the painful feelings that such “décor” may evoke in people who have been historically marginalized and discriminated against in this country. I have no doubt that you did not intend to cause such feelings since your spirit comes through on your blog; however, I ask that you please take this into consideration when making and posting such selections in the future. Thank you for your consideration.

      Thank you Eboni. I too have noticed this decor trend and wondered why this has become so popular considering what it stands for for so many of our fellow Americans and their ancestry.

      Hi Eboni – I just want to thank you for pointing this out. When I originally saw the cotton branches, I thought to myself how they reminded me of the nearby cotton fields next to my grandparents ranch in Texas and my initial feelings were those of nostalgia, so I admittedly added them to my Amazon cart. Then I continued reading and saw your comment. I appreciate you taking the time to express your thoughts and feelings toward the decor item and, while not your responsibility, pointing out to others why they can evoke negative emotions. Thank you. I won’t be buying the item.

        It is more upkeep and expense, and your home may seem too large now, but when the kids are teenagers and bring home all their friends, both you and your kids would appreciate the extra space to spread out.

      Hi Eboni, I’m honestly shocked to learn that cotton stems as decor are offensive in this way- I’ve never heard that before. Of course, I didn’t mean any harm.

      Not trying to start anything, but as a Black woman myself, I think you are over exaggerating. You do realize that most of our clothes are cotton? What about cotton pads or q-tips? At what point can we not use cotton? It’s a decor.

    It doesn’t look like anyone is touching this with a ten foot pole, so I will. Your blog has always been uplifting and encouraging and I appreciate the time that you devote to women and women’s issues. It is a sad day when a fashion and decor blog posts a photo of a vase containing cotton clippings and it can be taken that far out of context. I’m so sorry.

    There are many potential associations related to material items that should be omitted from our entire existence if put to this test. What’s next, putting up fences around fields to hide cotton from plain view? Cotton was on this earth far before slavery. Slavery is evil but cotton is not. God created a beautiful plant for us to enjoy in so many ways — including its aesthetics and I thank Him for it. Any prayerful person would recognize that. I would be curious to see how many clothing tags found in drawers and closets list cotton for those that support this view point… that most certainly would be hypocritical. It’s just virtue signaling and an attempt to oppress innocent goodness again– the tragic end to civility. The world is filled with illegitimate platforms and minefields nowadays in this regard. People are so ready to pounce on other people at every word. Toxic. Please do not be discouraged or intimidated. Thank you for your perfectly nice blog. It shouldn’t be used for this discourse. Sorry but somebody needs to call out the inappropriateness of using this forum as a personal platform. Completely out of place and uncalled for.

    Wonderful selection of autumn items! I especially love throws, a rug and wreaths. Fall is all about textures and layers and the pieces you handpicked are the perfect choice for this season. They all have that charm and come in wonderful colors, so I’ll surely get some of them. Thank you for sharing!

    Megan, I have been following your blog for several years, and love it! It is one of the first things I read in the morning. You and your family have been in my thoughts the last week. I lost my husband very unexpectedly last year, and due to financial reasons had to move from our home about 9 months later. I hated having to make that decision. I really hated it for my kids. They loved our home, and we had created so many memories there. I know that there is not any one right answer to selling, but I hope that finances don’t have to be the deciding factor.

    Hugs to you.

      I am so very sorry to hear that Stephanie. My heart goes out to you and your kiddos. I prayed for you and hope things are getting a tiny bit easier day by day.
