I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! Happy gorging of all things turkey and pumpkie pie, but most of all, take time to give thanks. We're taking a little day off for Friday so I thought I'd include an early "Thanks-Giving" cupcake for our cupcake Friday post.

Caroline, over at Greedy Girl let us know about a fabulous calendar swap that she's hosting! You have until November 30th to email her. You will then be assigned a "swapmate" to send a calendar (of your choosing between $20-25) to. How fun..and ahem, not to bias you all but I can think of a great eco-calendar to send off.

Without fail, Natalie Bowen's floral artistry always blows us away. She is so gracious and talented and we were the lucky recipients of this gorgeous peony, hydrangea and mini-tangerine (aka "cuties") arrangement. I can honestly tell you, the photo doesn't do it justice... Our customers ogled this arrangement all weekend! Click here to visit more of Natalie's incredible work.

Why not covet the accessories of modern domesticity...a man (and his 'stache), a woman, and their wool felted dachshund wristlet. Leave it to Dutch design couple Vlieger & Vandam for such novel creations!

Kate Cusack is an artist of many expressions, but her zipper jewelry just stopped me in my tracks. As you know, this season it's all about big statement jewelry and these pieces will exude a polished "wow" factor to any wardrobe!

At Virgil O. Stamps, you are encouraged to send in your "trash." From there, he will convert anything from gym floor tape, old books or children's drawings into letterpressed business cards and invitations. I thought his business cards were brilliant and a perfect eco-friendly option!
(and would make great placecards for a wedding too!).
