6. Three books came on my radar this week that I’m choosing between for my next read. They are Our Country Friends by Gary Shteyngart, Wish You Were Here by Jodi Picoult and The Personal Librarian by Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray.

9. LUXURY LINK OF THE WEEK: These stylish sunglasses are super flattering and caught my attention, as I noticed them on several people this week. It satisfies the large sunglass look, without being crazy big, and the cat eye shape gives a nice lift to the face.

10. UP NEXT: Ideas for fall entertaining at home…

Ann | On Sutton Place

1.) AUGUST BESTSELLERS: your most clicked and purchased item was this wood lantern that I bought for our mantel. I’ll be showing you our fall living room, and the mantel, soon! You also loved the cotton and linen quilt I featured in our basement bedroom. All the savvy shoppers snagged this super cute but inexpensive fall pillow cover, pictured above on our fall porch. The jewelry lovers got this pretty gold Kendra Scott bracelet. Rounding out the top five is this round wood tray that looks great with the lanterns mentioned above. You all got some great stuff!

2.) One of the reasons I’ve delayed showing you our fall living room is because I want to add a blanket ladder to the large sofa wall. I’ve been looking for a long time, and found several that I love. This one combines metal and wood, and I think the hooks on this one add great interest. In the end, I decided on this one. It’s classic, the perfect color, and the right height. So stay tuned!

3.) FAVORITE QUOTE: “The best portion of your life will be the small, nameless moments you spend smiling with someone who matters to you.” ~Ritu Ghatourey

4.) INSPIRATION: Take a look at this beautiful Edinburgh home that’s filled with warm whites and antiques, this fall home tour from Janelle Trinette has cozy layers and comforting colors, and I think this rustic centerpiece has that gathered-over-time look that is perfect for autumn.

5.) Fall is slowly arriving here in Ohio. There have been a few mornings recently where the chill in the air absolutely felt like autumn. Our front porch is ready to go, and I have a classic pumpkin recipe on the schedule for this weekend. I added all the ingredients for vegetable beef soup to my grocery list, and I’ve already made the first batch of zucchini bread. Slowly but surely, fall is calling.

6.) MY FALL PICKS: this black small Vera tote that I carry every single day, these amazing leggings, these black sneakers that are super comfortable, this cozy Daily Ritual tunic, and this ultra light long puffer vest.

7.) SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT: “Some people could be given an entire field of roses and only see the thorns in it. Others could be given a single weed and only see the wildflower in it. Perception is a key component to gratitude. And gratitude is a key component to joy.” ~Amy Weatherly

8.) WHAT I’M WATCHING: Untold: The Girlfriend Who Didn’t Exist on Netflix…definitely a very bizarre (but true) story. Hostile Territory on Hulu and Redeeming Love on Amazon Prime. Both of these are really good with wonderful endings. I finished season 7 of Grantchester…and talk about wonderful endings! It warmed my heart.

9.) I’m still working on the 2023 printable calendar…it’s coming along, slow but sure. My goal is to send it out on Sunday, September 18th.

10.) That’s all I have for today. Wishing you all a wonderful week.

2. EASY FALL DIY: Put a chunky candle in a glass hurricane and add coffee beans, candy corn, or dried Indian corn around it. Make a few of these candles in different sizes for a festive look. I like to use battery-operated candles with remotes.

3. FALL RECIPES: These delicious recipes are worth making this fall: My favorite Raw Apple CakePumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer, and Roasted Butternut Squash Soup. You can see more yummy StoneGable recipes HERE.

$50-$100- this natural woven cube, this detailed round mirror, this handsome electric tea kettle, this white terracotta gourd, this wood and enamel tray, and this beautiful quartz catch-all.

$100-$200- this upholstered bench (comes in different colors), this extra tall glass bottle vase, and this small coffee table in my sunroom.

WORTH THE SPLURGE: this pretty and ample swivel chair, and this foyer boot tray and organizer.

5. HOME TOURS: tour the famous Patina Farms, Bunny Williams does a deep dive into Mixing Antiques In Modern Design, and visit Charlotte Moss in her Beautiful Home (a must-see).

6. THINGS TO WATCH AND READ: Dickensian is a somewhat dark mash-up of all things Dickens. Very very creative! The Personal Librarian is on my book list and so is The Memory Of An Elephant.

7. FUN AND INTERESTING FACTS: What simple thing can you do to boost your concentration? What moon happens most in September?

8. CAPSULE WARDROBE: Best new style for fall. What goes around, comes around! Blazers are coming on strong for fall in a new and softer way. See this gorgeous relaxed sweater blazer. Shackets are big this fall. What is a shacket? So glad you asked! It’s an oversized shirt that acts like a jacket. See my favorites HERE and HERE. And the color camel is big this fall. Here is a beautiful sweater in this rich fall color and a stunning knit blazer too.

9. What is your beverage of choice in the am? Coffee, tea, cider? Why not create a coffee bar (or tea or whatever) on your countertop? Here are lots of ideas for transforming your countertop into a Small Space Coffee Bar! Also, check out Ideas For A Fall Kitchen.

10. READER’S FAVORITES LAST WEEK: this beautiful fall wreath, this stunning beddingnotch-collar cardigan jacket, this pretty quilt set, this wire-edged ribbon, and these buffalo check pillows.

Answer to #7- Chewing gum boosts concentration. A harvest moon, when the moon appears larger in the sky, occurs the most in September.
