This is what I wore to Thanksgiving at my Nanna's.  My favorite color palette in the world, Autumn.  When I got this sweater in the mail I knew I wanted to wait to wear it on Thanksgiving.  I love how 70's it is, reminds me of an embroidered pillow.  And its just the right shade of green.  Im excited its tights weather!  Although Ive poked holes in almost all of my cute tights already.  I can hardly wear a pair of tights without poking holes in them... anyone else have this problem?  And I usually do it the first time I wear them, and most often, within the first hour.  Maybe I need to go back and embrace my 90's teenage self who loved tights only if they had holes in them.  (Ever+mi.crush carries my Violet Bella jewelry!  You can find it here).

We had a really nice thanksgiving gathering at my Nanna's house.  I love that I have a loving family who doesn't fight and can just be with each other.  It was very laid back with lots of really good food.  So much to be thankful for.  Of course it was a pretty bittersweet day for me, as all holidays are now without my mom and dad.  But I kept them close to my heart, like I always do.  I'm always reminded by someone in my family how much I resemble my mom, and that makes me happy.  I need to take a photo of us side by side for you guys to see!

I know its kind of been outfit post and giveaway central around this blog lately.  As fun as those things are, I am yearning for some good time to blog more heart to heart.  This season just keeps me so busy.  I'm planning on changing some things up here on the blog at the beginning of the new year.  I will no longer be doing as many individual giveaways, and doing just a small handful a month in big groups.  (kind of like I use to).  I'm also hoping to change up the layout of the blog in general as well.  Lot's of regrouping, brainstorming, letting go and simplifying.  It's what I need. 

We are still having sales in all of our shops, through monday!  Things are selling out fast!!!  If your looking to do some of your holiday shopping with handmade artists and not go fight the hustle in the city, there are so many great deals online this weekend!  Get 20% everything in Roots and Feathers, Violet Bella & Skyline Fever with the code BLACKNUMBERONE at checkout.  (Get an extra 10% off if you leave a note at time of checkout telling me where that code came from).  We will also combine shipping if you order from both shops.  We will refund you when we are shipping the items out.

Today I will be filled up with packaging orders and cleaning my house.  While listening to loud music and drinking tons of lemon water.

Please read my last post to see if you were a giveaway winner!

  10. Oh my word...I'm in love with the outfit. I say that every time, but every new ensemble I see becomes a new favorite here! I can't decide which piece I like most. I think I'll check out the shop your sweater came from, though. <3<3<3

    So glad to hear you've had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I wish I could say things were as calm and positive in my own family, but it is what it is. You sound like a blessed woman with many treasures, Laura. Thank you for sharing these details. <3
