Happy 4 days before Thanksgiving! One that is looking like it is going to be different from how we normally celebrate.
How was your week?
I was home all week and didn’t go anywhere except to get a Covid test.
Ed developed a cough last weekend and felt sick. If it had been any other year, he wouldn’t have given it any thought, but with Covid, it was the first thing we thought. We both got tested and had to stay at home until mid-afternoon on Saturday when we got the results back which were negative. :-)
Now I can get to the supermarket to stock up the fridge and pantry for our small, but going to still be festive Thanksgiving.
While I was waiting for the test results I did have time to get a few small holiday projects done that I will be posting soon.
On the blog this week I shared how I made:
- this Christmas tree collar with plaid fabric and dollar store frames
- and this Large low-sided bowl planter to place on the top of the sideboard in my foyer using plastic bowls.
I also worked on getting a page designed on my blog where you will be able to find all my holiday projects by section – Christmas trees, garlands, gift-wrapping, etc. Right now they are lumped under Christmas. In a few days I hope it will be ready to go.
Here are are few items that I liked online this week:
Will be making these for Thanksgiving Day…. they look like they will melt in your mouth.
Do you have a Butler’s Pantry in your home? I once decorated one for a Decorator’s Showhouse when I lived in PA. It was featured in a few magazines. I loved that space and love seeing and reading about this one all ready for the holidays.
Great re-use for all the gift bags you get and probably have stashed in a closet.
The next time you want to find decorating inspiration, these are the Best Home Decor Shopping Streets in America.
A warm and cozy holiday decorating collection.
If you want to feel like you are in a Hallmark Christmas movie, these towns are the best Christmas towns in America.
Good to know if you like pomegranates.
Feeling depressed with the 2020? Here are a few ways to find happy right now.
I bought this Micro Fleece Turtleneck in olive green and love it so much that I ordered two more, one in plum and another in turquoise. It is so soft and cozy and under $20!
Thanksgiving will be low-key at my house this year, but that doesn’t mean I am not going to make the day feel special. I bought a new set of affordable flatware with a natural vibe so we can eat in style. My previous flatware was getting pitted and looked dirty even when it was clean.
That’s it for this week. :-)
