Welcome To Weekly Wednesday Wishlist #70. Wow, there have been 70 weeks of WWW! I hope you ae enjoying what we put together for you each week as much as we do! I can’t wait for Lory and Ann to send me their list. I enjoy seeing all the things they send my way!
Enjoy all the inspiration!
Lory is up first…
1. This week I introduced the all new Holiday Decor Shop, featuring a curated selection of my favorite picks, arranged by category. I know it’s early, but with supply chain issues affecting deliveries and things selling out quickly, now is the time to plan! (If it’s too early for you, you can still enjoy the Fall Decor Shop.) Be sure not to miss what all is coming for the holiday season by subscribing HERE (you’ll also get my free ebook).
2. CURRENT DECOR CRUSHES UNDER $50: These wonderful brass candlestick holders (I have them on our tub surround), this amber glass hand soap set (I’m obsessed with these!), this large free-form edge glazed ceramic bowl and this mango wood ombre cutting board.
3. CURRENT DECOR CRUSHES UNDER $100: This clear lucite book stand (great for cookbooks), these fabulous colored glass wine goblets, this awesome pair of abstract nordic zen wall art pieces, this pretty honeycomb woven tray, and this sleek and stylish black teak bench.
4. CURRENT DECOR CRUSHES UNDER $200: This terrific rustic chic table lamp, these seagrass handled tote baskets (perfect for holding blankets), these refined rattan planter baskets and this handsome golden sunburst mirror.
5. THIS WEEK ON THE BLOG I shared this small entry foyer decorated for fall, this living room decorated with fall color, this masculine guest bedroom, this storage closet makeover for seasonal decorations and my top 12 Thanksgiving tables.
6. FASHION PICKS: This high rise “dad jean” (has a great cut and comes in multiple washes), this double faced oatmeal shirt-jacket, this wonderful oversized half zip sweater, these super comfy lug-sole block-heel western boots, this elegant double breasted wool coat (I love the black and camel combos!) and this best-selling pebbled leather tote.
7. I’ve had an air fryer dilemma for a while that I just solved. I had bought a really great high end model with top reviews. I used it for a bit, but it was huge and black and was an eye sore on our white counters. So I cleared space for it in a lower cabinet, hoping it would be easy to pull out and use. Well, I never felt like dragging it out of the cabinet and completely stopped using it. But it was my favorite way to make veggies with dinner. So I decided to see if I could find a smaller white model and it turns out this one is perfect! It fits comfortably on the counter and works great!! It’s on sale now, too!
8. FURNITURE DEALS (under $1000): This lovely round wood end table (amazing price alert!), this cozy boucle barrel chair, this chic and affordable rattan chest of drawers, this lovely burled wood console table, and this stately glass front shelf unit.
10. UP NEXT: Fall fashion in fall colors.
ON SUTTON PLACE
1.) I saw a gorgeous wreath on potterybarn.com, but it was a bit pricey, so I made my own! It was easy, and I show you exactly what to do. I also spruced up our porch planters, and they are now all set until Thanksgiving!
2.) EARLY CHRISTMAS DECOR SHOPPING: I started. I was roaming around online, and found a few items that I cannot live without! This classic Hearth & Hand doormat went in my cart first, and it was followed by two of these red and white pillows. I can’t wait to use these kitchen towels that look like grain sacks, and this red and cream ribbon. (The kitchen towels would make great napkins too.) I wanted these Norfolk pine trees last year for our porch, but they sold out…so I snagged them this year. The Norfolk pine garland is still available too, but don’t wait if you want it!
3.) INSPIRING PLACES: this Southern Living Idea House is truly stunning, and I think my favorite space is the laundry room! You will not believe the before and after of this 90’s kitchen, I love this sweet home tour from Caitlin Marie Design, and take a look at Joanna Teplin’s classic and light-filled home. (She’s half of the Home Edit duo.)
4.) FAVORITE QUOTE: “In a culture that celebrates busy, excess, and extroversion as the measure of a good life, make space in your home and life for calm, quite, and simple. For things to be as they should.” ~Joshua Becker
5.) DECOR FINDS: I’m still looking for an armoire for our bedroom, and I love this creamy white one. (Pricey but beautiful!) I just added a large basket just like this one to our entry. It’s the perfect time of year to buy a dough bowl, but if you aren’t sure, learn all about them HERE. This set of three hyacinth baskets is finally back in stock, and I wish I had someplace to hang this classic yet rustic Kate and Laurel sconce…because if I did, I would buy it!
6.) THE CHRISTMAS MARKET: by next week it will be finished, and I’ll be sharing your very own, carefully curated online market…right here on OSP. I’ve made it beautiful and festive, and I’ve kept your budgets in mind. Stay tuned!
7.) Since this series is called the Wish List, I thought I would share a few things I don’t have, but wish I did. I adore this light and pretty dutch oven, and the matching skillet, this ivory oval bowl has been in my cart for weeks, and I love these handsome seagrass lamps. I literally wear the same pair of pearl earrings every day, and these diamond cut drop balls would be such a nice change!
8.) AUTUMN RECIPES TO TRY: if you love one pot recipes, try this vegetable beef soup or this family friendly chili mac recipe. This butternut squash casserole looks easy and so yummy, and everyone will cheer for these braised chicken thighs and apples.
9.) COMING SOON: on Sunday, I’m sharing a recipe for Chicken Florentine soup that is truly delectable. I’m planning a Friendsgiving, and will share all the simple details as soon as I get them finalized. November calendars are coming soon, so if you aren’t an OSP email subscriber, please join us!

8. FUN AND INTERESTING FACTS: What two songs are commonly sung during the Christmas holiday but were originally composed for Thanksgiving? What flatware utinsel was missing from the first Thanksgiving meal?
9. HOME HACKS THAT REALLY WORK: freeze a candle and take it out of the freezer just before you use it so it will burn slower and longer. Stuff plastic grocery bags into a paper towl tube to store them. Hide those pesky table lamp cords by attaching small clear command hooks to the back of furniture and hook the cords on them.
Answers to #8: The Thanksgiving Song (Over The River And Through The Woods) and Jingle Bells are really Thanksgiving songs! The fork was not widely used at the time of the first Thanksgiving and probably missing from the table.
