This hot August weather is making me wish fall would get here already! There’s nothing I love more than curling up in my favorite chair to while away the cool autumn afternoon with a good book.  Or, more likely, squish into a corner of a bean bag with my kids and listen to them fight over control of our blanket, while I read Go Dog Go for the 18th time.  .  .

Chenille Throw

Pottery Barn has a lovely Grand chenille throw available in 6 different colors for $79.99. It’s 50 x 70″ and has hand-knotted fringe. Overstock has a comparable Luxury heavyweight chenille stripe throw in 4 different colors for $47.49. It is also 50 x 70″ and comes with a fringed edge. The most noticeable difference between the two throws is that Pottery Barn’s throw has a herringbone pattern while Overstock’s is a simpler stripe pattern.

Flameless Candles

Candles add to a cozy atmosphere. I like flameless candles for their safety and convenience. Pottery Barn has Flameless wax candles available from $14.50 to $34.50 depending on their size. These candles are battery operated and can be set with a timer. Overstock offers the Sarah Peyton 3-piece flameless candle set for $29.99. I love this set! It is also battery operated and made from wax. The set even comes with a remote to turn them on and off! Don’t forget: your entire order ships for only $2.95!

And remember, when shopping at sites such as, you can also earn 4.5% cash back through, making these deals even better!
