Are you getting all your recipes ready for Thanksgiving? Does your family stick to the same traditions each year or do you like to break out something new and experimental for the occasion? Our family sticks with most of the standbys, and will be especially doing so this year, as we will be spending it with my grandparents (ah, nothing like grandma’s casseroles)! This year I feel a little sorry for Thanksgiving. It seems that the holiday gets a bit overlooked as retailers jump the gun on Holiday shopping. Personally, I don’t like to see, hear or taste anything that screams “Christmas” until the day after…but this year it seems especially unavoidable. Of course, it doesn’t help that we are doing photoshoots for our Holiday Prairie Hive mag (design sting today!!) – chock full of holiday ideas.
While I was dodging Santas this week, I found a few things online I thought you might like:
Here we go – Thanksgiving is the kickoff for party, travel and awkward gifting season…here are some ideas for 10 Gifts that Anyone Can Use.
Weigh in: Head shaped vases: yay or nay?
Check out these gorgeous fringed number decorations from Camille Styles. I’m thinking of a letter for my baby’s nursery…if I had anywhere near enough patience to complete a project like this.
I loved this post on Fashion Trends that Should Go Out of Style. Although I must admit, I kind of like leopard in moderation. *A quick commentary on horizontal stripes – I have been SHOCKED to see how many horizontally striped Maternity tunics are out there! My goal is to minimize the widening, not enhance it…although I have indulged in some diagonals as the only alternative to the even worse solid colors and florals. Can someone explain this to me?
OK, enough of my rant…on to 60 Ways to Make Life Simpler. “Not Obsessing Over Terrible Maternity Clothes” should probably be on this list for me.
Have a great weekend everyone!
