Being Grateful

Available at Walmart, Target, Amazon, Overstock...
Several years ago, a dear co-worker of mine gifted me with this book.  At the time, I thought it was a not so subtle way of calling me out (I can be a complainer from time to time), but truthfully, I think she was just trying to remind me that in spite of my perceived problems, I really have it pretty good. And practicing gratefulness is like a part time job (one that you love, that is)- you have to create time and awareness for it.  Especially amidst the muck of life.

So, while I wish I had some adorable trinket or accessory that would complement this book, I'm offering this text to you, my readers.  Pick it up- read a section from time to time- and practice some gratitude in a world where we flippantly say thank you, or sometimes not at all.

Since I can't resist featuring ONE product- this is a staple in my home come Thanksgiving!
$27.99 Harvest scent

Happy Thanksgiving all, may your homes be full of gratitude!

Giving Thanks

Gobble! Gobble! I so solemnly swear to hold off on all things related to December holidays until after Thanksgiving day.  So I thought for the next two weeks as we prep for turkey day, I would highlight a few great items that I am eyeing (if I ever hosted Thanksgiving dinner, perhaps...)

Crate and Barrel always have such fun, classic decor and when I saw this displayed recently, I longed for a kitchen table that would be big enough to hold all these great items!!

For the table top...
In love with this plate! $7.95 each
With these cocktail napkins!
for $2.95- why  hesitate??
And then the coordinating place card!
So perfect at $6.95 for a 12 pack
Ok, so I won't go overboard with the "give thanks" theme- but instead show some other fan favs...

I love these!! Could use them all throughout the winter season.
I wish they were a little less than $9.95 each though!
And I couldn't resist showing this adorable pumpkin platter.  My mom would say "punkin" platter :)
$29.95 for this little beauty (there are coordinating dish towels too!)
So let's focus on giving thanks these next few weeks before the mad rush of December has us longing for the quieter times of November. Happy turkey prep to all!
