thanksgiving 101.

a few suggestions to help you celebrate this thanksgiving weekend appropriately:napkin | plate | cutlery | salt and pepper shakers | wine | mug | scarf | candle | boot | throw | socks 

While I know it’s only us Canadians who are celebrating this weekend, there’s no reason that these simple guidelines can’t apply to those of you who are not. Kick back, relax, wear a pair of cozy knit socks and have a most wonderful fall weekend. And happy thanksgiving to my lovely Canadian friends!

    Oh yay! I wasn’t expecting a post from you today. You know, I spent the whole of your summer green with envy and now that it’s approaching my turn for summer, you’re making me want cable knit socks & hot chocolate! Enjoy the festivities this weekend!

    I really love the colors of your selections. Not your standard color palette for Thanksgiving, but it totally works!

    Man! I wish Thanksgiving was this early in the US, my rule is that I can’t listen to Christmas music until after Thanksgiving… I’m currently breaking it :) But that blanket looks like a curl up with a good book blanket~ Have a wonderful holiday!

      that’s a pretty good rule I think!
      Although, I was listening to my iTunes on shuffle the other day and Christmas music kept coming on. I refused to listen to it (it’s still a little early for me) but it did get me all kinds of excited

    So lovely!! I wish it was US Thanksgiving now as well, I love how Canadians have a properly timed Thanksgiving, ours is always so late and clearly past harvest time. Hope you have a wonderful holiday & long weekend!! xo
