We’re shopping on Amazon for cozy fall linens including throw blankets and pillow covers! And check out what else we’ve been up to this week on the blog.
Happy Friday friends!
Is everyone back to school in your area yet or do they go back after this holiday weekend?
School started this week for the younger children in our town although our S2M college kids have been back on campus for the last few weeks.
We’re looking forward to the fall season and college football tailgating with our students.
AnnMarie is headed to Boone to see her son’s college Appalachian State take on the University of North Carolina this weekend.
It should be a great game…Go, Mountaineers!!
Anne will be working on some home projects and enjoying time in her pool with family.
What are you up to this weekend?
We’ve got some good news for you today!
We’re bringing back our weekly Simply Stated after getting off track with it in the last several months.
If you’ve been around here a while you may remember that we shared a round-up of the posts from that week each Saturday called Simply Stated.
And our Friday Favorites is our weekly post where we share what we’ve been shopping for like décor items, kitchen supplies, personal items, and even stuff for our college and beyond kids.
We’ve been wanting to bring Simply Stated back but had now started doing Friday Favorites.
We don’t overwhelm you so we thought it would be super fun to combine our Friday Favorites with Simply Stated.
Every Friday you can expect to see our weekly roundup that will include our faves plus what we’ve been up to on the blog that week.
So now you’ll get a 2-for-1 post every week.

What’s New on the Blog?
In between writing new blog posts we take time to update our old content too.
We check to make sure all our affiliate links are still working, add new photos if needed, and other boring behind the scenes stuff.
Did you know if you click a shopping link in one of our posts and buy something (even if it’s not the same item we’ve linked) we earn a commission?
And the best part, it doesn’t cost you anything to shop through our links but it really helps our business grow.
Thanks so much for supporting our blog! We appreciate you more than you know!!
AnnMarie updated a few of her super old posts this week.
It was fun to look back and see how much we’ve grown as bloggers.
Oh boy, some of those old photos are pretty bad and the writing isn’t much better. lol
If you want to see what we mean, check out this oldie but goodie all about AnnMarie’s simple kitchen counter coffee bar.
She also found some new awesome decorative round trays to create your own coffee station.
When we update old content we also have the opportunity to source new items for you and share them on our LTK (Like to Know) page.
Do you have the LTK app?
If you do we’d love for you to follow us over there.
AnnMarie also worked on two old blog posts that give you some great ideas to decorate the stairways in your home.
If you have a really tall staircase wall you may like her idea for a simple way to decorate it.
Check out these pretty architectural wall decor pieces we found this week.
Or if you love decorating with photos then you won’t want to miss how she created her staircase gallery wall in 3 easy steps.
We joined 16 other bloggers this week on the blog to share some early fall home decorating inspiration.
Anne transitioned her patriotic summer porch decor to early fall with sunflowers & pops of yellow.
Wait until you see how pretty & cheerful her front porch looks!
You can shop her front porch here.
We’ve both got some amazing room makeovers coming up before the end of the year that we’re really excited about.
It’s going to be an incredible transformation so be sure to look at her before pictures!
Friday Favorites: Cozy Fall Linens from Amazon
Are you looking forward to fall weather?
Even though it’s still hot here in North Carolina, it’s less humid and even getting a bit cooler in the evenings.
AnnMarie has been online shopping for budget-friendly fall home decor to get her house ready for the cozy season.
This week she’s been searching for comfy throw blankets and pretty pillow covers to style her home for the new season.
She found some awesome affordable options on Amazon you’re going to love!
Tell us in comments which is your favorite this week!
This plaid checkered woven throw blanket is 100% cotton and available in 12 colors.
AnnMarie ordered one in a pretty neutral linen color that’s perfect not only for fall but all year long.
The classic windowpane pattern with fringe detail coordinates well with any style of home decor from traditional to modern to farmhouse and everything in between.
This boho cotton throw with a chevron pattern is neutral enough to fit into many different home decor styles.
It’s available in 5 colors including the oatmeal color AnnMarie chose.
Although it looks a bit green in the photo, fingers crossed it’s actually more oatmeal when it arrives tomorrow.
You can’t beat the price on this pack of two throw blankets from Amazon.
I really love that the set comes with one solid and one patterned blanket.
AnnMarie ordered this set in taupe but there are also six other color options to choose from to match your home decor.
This farmhouse-style plaid throw is AnnMarie’s favorite of the all blankets she ordered.
It’s made from soft 100% acrylic with a cashmere-like feel with five color options.
Can you tell that AnnMarie is going with a neutral color theme this fall?
Shawls and scarves are a great alternative to throw blankets when decorating your home for fall.
They’re smaller so look great as a decor piece hanging out of a wicker basket or in an autumn tablescape design.
And they’re less expensive than blankets, so you can afford to add several throughout your home to bring in fall colors and create a cozy vibe.
This triangle scarf in white camel is available in 35 color and pattern options…yup that’s right…I said 35 different styles!
Now let’s see if AnnMarie actually styles her home with it or if she wears it because it’s so pretty, don’t you think so? lol
A set of two polyester linen cloth material pillow covers are a budget-friendly find that can be used anywhere in your home.
With covers, it’s easy to switch them up every season without having to store all those extra big pillows…just swap out the cover over your pillow insert…so easy!
The cream and white covers are a beautiful neutral option that will coordinate with many other pillows you may already have.
But they also come in 12 other colors if you’re looking for something brighter.
The classic style plaid cover is available in four color and five size options.
AnnMarie ordered the brown in a 12×20 inch size and is excited to see how it looks in her home this fall.
AnnMarie’s favorite pillow she found this week is this gorgeous linen fringed beige cover.
You can choose from four pretty colors to match your home.
Stay tuned to see how all these cozy fall linens from Amazon make their way into AnnMarie’s fall home decor.
