the year without green bean casserole

happy thanksgiving!

note to self -
do not clean your oven the day before expecting company for a holiday dinner.
a sensor went out causing the oven to think the cleaning process is still on and inturn the oven door is locked - tight.
thank goodness the local ace hardware had a nesco in stock.
but alas - no green bean casserole, two corn casserole or apple pie.
good thing my sister-in-law was bringing a pumpkin pie. 
just had to show you my husband's creative beverage station : )
aka wisconin frig.

last summer, i picked up this letter made from a book at the cute shop, "poppins" on mackinaw island.

here's a pic of the letters in the shop.

i was trolling anthropologie the other day (love looking at the displays) 
and what did i find but letters made from books.

the exact same item, but a higher price. 

i just took a peak at etsy and there are a quite a few shops that sell similar letters
at a variety of prices.

first snow

It's on!

just a dusting, 
but just enough to get you in the holiday spirit.
