HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!
Will you be going over the river and through the woods this year or will the multitudes gather together at your house? Either way, I hope it is a Thanksgiving to be remembered.
It's a time of tradition and a time of harvest which is the reason I paired 'tradition' with 'harvest' glassybaby, next to one of the old turkey plates I bought in Philadelphia years ago. Now that I think of it, those plates are as much a tradition for us as certain glassybaby are becoming. I love it that we pull the same things out to use year after year, and I love it even more that the family would whole-heartedly object if we didn't.
Above is the glassybaby set 'thankful'. It is a luscious cornucopia of all things bountiful, generous, robust, and toothy that we would hope to find surrounding our Thanksgiving table. The mother-earth colors are 'warm gravy', 'harvest', 'ripe olive', 'dijon', and 'jane's caramel'. Couldn't you just put them on a plate and sop them up with a biscuit? So good! I could even eat them up with a spoon!
A tradition we had when the children were quite small was to ask everyone in the family what they would be thankful to find on the Thanksgiving Day table. More than once we had hot dogs and hot fudge sundaes in addition to turkey, dressing and pumpkin pie. Now, after saying grace, we frequently ask all assembled what they are most thankful for. At the risk of awkward moments, nobody has to answer, but usually there are wonderfully heartfelt and sometimes surprising offerings. We have so much to be thankful for.
At this special time of year, I would like to express my thanks to all our glassybaby friends who support the healing message of glassybaby. It is always amazing to me the light and love these magical little vessels exude whether it's during sickness or health. I am thankful to be a part of of such a bighearted company whose aim is goodwill and giving back.
Until next time,
