Thanksgiving Menu + Giveaway

Friday, November 4th, 2011

Hi all, happy Friday to you!  I was on the phone with my sister yesterday planning our Thanksgiving feast and informed that for the first time in our family’s history of feasts, my brother-in-law has plans to deep fry our turkey this year. This is new to me having grown up on an oven roasted bird, but from what I’ve heard (thanks to plenty of tweets yesterday to reassure me) deep fried turkey is excellent. I’m intrigued and looking forward to it, but just might roast up another smaller bird for old times sake.

The big feast is less than three weeks away, and we’re busily assigning who’s cooking what. It’s just not Thanksgiving without turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, sweet potatoes, cranberry relish and pumpkin pie which requires my attire include my most stretchy pants on that day. (I can’t be alone in that.)

So let’s talk about food.  A gorgeous keepsake cookbook arrived in my mailbox last week celebrating the 85th Anniversary of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.  Do you watch the Parade every year?  We always have it on while we prep the feast (yet another T day tradition).

Decorative Pillow Giveaway

Friday, October 28th, 2011

Hello hello and happy Friday everyone!  Thanks so much for all of your kind comments on yesterday’s post on creativity and Why I DIY, I’ve read them all and appreciate all of your perspectives, it’s a great conversation so join in with your opinion!

When I posted pictures of my fall mantel a few weeks ago, several of you asked me where did I get those colorful floral pillows on the sofa and chair.  Well I’ll tell ya!  They come from a fabulous Etsy shop I discovered called Festive Home Décor. After I found Michelle’s shop, I had a hard time picking just one!  It’s filled with so many elegant and modern pillows made with designer fabrics.
