Congratulations to our winner, Megan. Check back next month for another great giveaway!

Halloween is officially over. Daylight savings time ends this weekend (set your clocks back an hour this Saturday!). That means it’s time to start bundling up your home for the cooler weather. The bedroom is the perfect place to start, so that’s why we partnered with Blissliving Home to give one lucky reader a luxurious new bedding set.

Blissliving Home Bedding Giveaway

One lucky winner will receive one of Blissliving’s gorgeous new arrivals: a Birch Duvet set in his or her choice of full/queen or king size. This duvet has a bold, graphic pattern inspired by birch trees, and the 300-thread-count cotton sateen makes this extra soft and cuddly. To round out the new bedding look, the winner will also receive a luxe velvet Addison pillow in vibrant gold and an ultra-soft woven blue throw.

    We have an Eden Pure heater that we use in the winter, instead of turning out heater on. It has saved us A LOT of money, and works like a charm.

  2. G. Lowell Thayer says:

    To warm up the house, we first make sure all of the windows are still well sealed. For example, we had some screens that recently came loose that affected the fit of the windows. On sunny days, we tie back the curtains to bring in the sunshine. And of course we adjust the heat and use the fireplace as needed.

    I am much more sensitive to cold in my house. I use an electric throw blanket in the evenings when I’m chilly, rather than warm the whole house. We also keep the black-out insulating curtains drawn except mid-day when we keep the Southern-facing curtains open to let the sunlight warm the house.

    We love the smells of Fall to warm up our home! Chocolate Chip Banana Bread baking in the oven, Chili cooking in the crockpot, a fresh fire in the fireplace, and candles on the mantle. We also LOVE our warm essentials like fuzzy socks, fleece pajama pants, blankets and Leopard print or Buzz Lightyear snuggies!

    Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of your giveaway!

    I use warm apple cinnamon air freshener plugins around the home to create a cozy warm feel. I rotate culinary utensils and decor pieces with wood and tree branches and cinnamon sticks to give a rustic wooden warm feel. It always keeps our guests in comfy cozy heaven!

    Whave a fire in the fireplace and enjoy a cup of cocoa with a splash of Irish Creme!

  7. Sheila Hall says:

    We use soft throws, holiday scented candles, and use our fireplace at night.

  8. Marcy Fischer says:

    Living in the freezing state of Minnesota, you MUST keep cozy warm! Lots of blankets and your husbands warm body! I could definitely use MORE blankets, so I hope I win!!!

  9. Julia Covington says:

    We add soft throws to the sofas and bake pumpkin chocolate chip muffins to fill our home with the smell of fall.
