Guest Picks: Snuggle Up with These Cozy Home Accessories
Now that the delicious fall chill is starting to creep into the air, I'm getting excited for cold nights spent snuggling up on the couch. Cozy blankets, mugs of hot tea and a flickering fire will all be involved. I must admit, it's still 80 degrees here in Phoenix, and flip flops are my daily footwear, but soon, very soon, I'll be breaking out the cold weather accessories and firing up the heater. For now, I dream. — Elaina from Fun Finds for Mom
