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?
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.
FALL DECOR ON AMAZON PRIME
Below are few Fall Decor things that caught my eye and all but one are on PRIME!
Gold Bowl • White Pumpkins (12 piece set) • Wreath • Wooden Beads • Buffalo Check Pillow Covers • Cotton Stems • Gold Pumpkins • Fall Pillow Covers (set of 4) • Battery Operated Birch Candles • Lantern • Coffee Mug
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. 😉
Set of Pumpkins – not on Prime, but they offer FREE shipping
The little mini pumpkins are so cute! The muted colors and sentiment on the Thanks pumpkins is adorable!
I have buffalo check pillows and leopard print pillows that stay on our couch year round and thankfully they go with all my Fall decor.
Both of these pillow covers are only $15 for two!
And then you can mix and match with the pillows below. I ordered the set of 4 pillow covers on the bottom right.
Of course we all love cuddling up on the couch with a cozy throw. This one is a recent fave, so so soft and plush and the one Jordan and James fight over.
This super soft throw blanket also looks amazing, has gotten over 1,200 positive reviews and is only $18 with a 15% off coupon! And PRIME!
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!
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!
