Give Thanks…

Wishing everyone a happy Thanksgiving…

I am thankful for the people who love me, the food on my table and the roof over my head.

How will you be celebrating Thanksgiving today?  I’ll be spending the day with my immediate family at home.  I’m crossing my fingers for rain because Maui has been in a drought and could use the rainfall. I’d also welcome a day in with a book and hot chocolate.

Consider avoiding the crowds at your local big box and supporting small business this weekend like MonkiVintage from Portland, Maine.  Monki Vintage has a great eye for timeless design with their mid-century and Scandinavian picks sourced throughout the northeast.  I love these vintage plastic pin back letters for my home office mood board which are also available in Boo and Be Merry.  They currently have a wonderful selection of vintage holiday decor and dish ware including hand painted wooden figures.  Browsing their etsy shop with an expresso from home is so much more civilized than fighting the crowds at WalMart, don’t you think?

Amy Giacomelli creates these wonderful polymer clay sculptures from her studio in Colorado and makes them available to you in her etsy shop, SkyeArt.  Each piece is organically shaped and brings a message for the holidays or an I Love You, making her art the perfect decor, cake topping or gift.  SkyeArt also has ornaments as you start to decorate your home this season.

Stop by tomorrow for my thoughts on Black Friday and ways that you can support Small Business Saturday including a few of my local picks.
