Fall Decor From Amazon

*This post contains affiliate links



I don’t know how I ever lived without Amazon.


All of you over 35 or 40,  know that before the internet, we either had to get in the car and go shopping or order from a mail order catalog where it took 4-6 weeks to get your order. Seriously.

Now, I love going shopping, but these days I am still recovering and it may be awhile until I can do that again.


That’s where Amazon comes in…
This past week, I’ve ordered a couple of books, silicone straws, glass bottles, hibiscus tea to name just a few, and this past month; lots of Fall decor.

The Fall decor included some grapevine wreaths, faux white pumpkins , a fall leaf garland, some faux sage leaves, a few pillow covers and a couple of
buffalo check table runners. That’s not all, but let’s leave it at that!

Last year I ordered lots of buffalo check pillow covers.
I displayed them on the porch last Fall

and Christmas

I may have to get the light cream buffalo check for next Spring.


I also have my eye on a buffalo check rug for under the mat on the front porch.

This year, I found the fall leaf garland and faux sage…

You can also see one of the buffalo check table runners, too.





I purchased this Fall pillow cover that I’ll set out on the porch this year…
We’re still having summer weather here and it’s hard to
cozy up the porch for Fall when you walk outside and it’s still in the 90s with high humidity!
Hopefully next week the weather will turn a bit cooler; we shall see.

Here are a few more things that caught my eye:
Aren’t these beautiful flameless Fall candles?

If you prefer real candles; how about these?

So, even though the weather isn’t co-operating, the house will be decorated for Fall. I may look ridiculous laying out a cozy warm throw on the porch when it’s still 90 degrees out, but Fall weather has always arrived here in the South sooner or later.  This year it’s just later…
How is Fall where you are?
Wishing you lots of warm and cozy nights.

Farmhouse Decor At The Mountain Cottage

*this post contains affiliate links



Last weekend we were up at our mountain cottage.
Our little mountain cottage came through Hurricane Florence beautifully and there was no signs of a big storm, not even windblown branches on the ground.
We were definitely happy about that.
The weather may still be warm, but there are little signs that a change of seasons is on it’s way. Some leaves are already losing their green and the burning bush shrubs have almost turned transformed into their brilliant color.

As for accessories….let’s start in the kitchen.
Our youngest daughter found these cute Rae Dunn Purr and Meow mugs awhile back. I finally realized they’d be perfect for the mountain cottage.

I found this Farmhouse style Grocery sign on TJ Maxx’s website.  It’s perfect in the space above the Vintage Style Pantry.

The Pantry Grocery sign goes well with the other accessories above the kitchen banquette.

The Grocery sign also looks great with the Farmhouse style Blessed sign above the kitchen sink.

I found this custom made sign on Amazon for above the closet in the attic bedroom. She has some a few other signs I have my eye on.

The last accessory I have to show you is the gothic style “window” I found on Hobby Lobby’s website. It looks great on the left side of the window in the upstairs attic bedroom .

Mr. DIY hung all the accessories, in addition to finishing the stairs to the view porch, mowing the expansive lawn and straightening up the crawl space.
I look forward to our next visit as the weather will be cool and crisp and it will definitely feel like Fall.
How is your Fall decorating going?
