Happy Friday and Happy Thanksgiving Canada!

Where did Friday go? All of a sudden it's after 5pm and I've just eaten a mini pumpkin pie. Just trying to get in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I guess.

I'm just working out a little table top decor for the big feast of starch, on Monday. I'm leaning towards all things natural. I may do something like this. Yes? No way? Maybe?


Until then, I'll stick to my store bought mini pumpkin pie.


This is the time of year to maybe think about a food donation to your local food bank, or helping out a local family in need. There are, sadly, plenty in need these days.

Last but not least, I did a guest post for Natalie of The SoHo . She had asked if I could share what I love about Vancouver. I was happy to do it. She's a pretty fabulous girl!

Have a great weekend! Back on Monday.

i love the simple and fall feeling your arrangements are - go for it!
and yes, thank you, a donation to the food bank will be perfect for this weekend.

I think you could make some really nice decor with the chestnuts and fall flowers. I am sure anything you put together will be perfection.

Happy Thanksgiving to you! We still have a month or so in the U.S. before we celebrate. Good note about giving to a local food bank. We have a lot people in need too.
