Giving Thanks (+ A Few Blinks)

Did you really think I'd leave you hanging without blinks this week? It's a long holiday weekend for me, so I compiled a few fun things for you. Enjoy...

Put on your dancing shoes (even if it's just around the kitchen). I do it all the time. (image spotted on Civetta)

What's not to love? Tea + Gold + Polka dots justify a fist pump. (via Ez)

And what do you know, here comes tea + blue + stripes! (cozy image spotted on The Lil Bee)

Did you see Justina's incredible typeset tray "before and after" on Design*Sponge? Now if I could just get my hands on one...

 I spotted this book in the latest issue of InStyle and immediately added it to my amazon wish list.

I agree with the rest of the blog world and think that the Spade's apartment is pretty stellar

My idyllic Thanksgiving table scape. (seen on Snippet & Ink)

Great gallery wall. Styling is pretty bangin' too. (spotted on Sfgirlbybay)

 Absolutely adore this color study locket first seen on Lovely Morning

I've spent the better part of  today cleaning my house from top to bottom and double checking that we are fully stocked with all necessary ingredients for tomorrow's Thanksgiving dinner (5 sticks of butter and counting!). It's my first time hosting the holiday and I can't wait to spend the long weekend devouring stuffing, mashed potatoes & cranberry sauce (my favorite Thanksgiving foods). Family members are arriving within the next few hours, so I'm going to go pour myself a glass of wine and relax for a bit before the gorge-fest commences. I've got a lot to be thankful for this year and can't wait to spend the next few days reflecting on that. 

Wishing you an abundance of love & laughter. Until Monday, friends.


  1. I hope you have a fab Thanksgiving and I can't wait to hear all about it.

  3. No word of a lie. You seriously just rounded up some of my favourite posts from the interwebs this week. Amazing.

    Polka dots, stripes, Justina's makeover. Deeeelicious!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you, Kayla!

  4. Beautiful collection of images

    Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving Kayla!

  5. I hope your hosting of the holiday goes seamlessly and enjoy your time with your family. Even though our annual expat Thanksgiving is pretty great, nothing beats spending time with your family.

  6. Hope you guys had an absolutely fabulous Thanksgiving! I am just swooning over that adorable gold polka dot tea cup-I need it!

  7. Yes! So much fun! The locket, the gold Polka dots... and thank you for including my typeset tray!
