Friday Five


Welcome Friends!

Yesterday Sarah, Kyle, and I had some errands to run, and groceries to buy. As we were driving we were noticing all of the trees that change color early were really changing.  With the kind of crazy year its been, I'm welcoming this signs in nature of the seasonal change.

This made me think about some of the cozy items that I have recently added to my home, and some that I have year round but that work well for Autumn.

Here are my five - 

1. When I went to HomeGoods last week I purchased this small rug for the kitchen.  It's in front of the sink and the stove is to the right of the rug.  I spend a lot of time in those two spots and this rug is very welcoming in this space!

2. I bought these pillows from Amazon.  I shared them on a post last week. I really like them and they work beautifully in my home. You can find them{here}. They come in 15 color options.  Love them!

3. I'm working on an Autumn chalkboard sign.  I've seen some on Pinterest and knew I had a chalkboard in my decor storage. I bought some chalk pens and voila'!  I say that I am working on it because I erased what I'd written is too crowded at the end!  I'll get it right (hopefully) and I'll show you next week!

4. I've had this plate FOREVER!  I've had it hanging over the plate rack, next to the big shelf over my stairwell.  The colors are perfect in my home and for Autumn.

5. These curtains used to hang in my bedroom, when Tim and I used the bedroom Sarah has now.  When we moved back to the master, I couldn't use these as there are only two panels and I need three for the master.  A year or so ago, when I changed the black and white buffalo check curtains out for the gold velvet, I remembered that I had these curtains and used them on the sliding french doors.

They really are perfect in my home.

I'm also going to leave you with a bonus video.  We've been getting this thunderstorms several times a week for the last few weeks.  I love them especially when everyone is cozy at home.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Keep praying for our nation.
