Thank you for being...you. Have a great Thanksgiving everyone! Enjoy the day! I'm going to Iowa!

I've been thinking lately about writing on the wall. And awesome lettering. My brother is a physicist. He always has blackboards full of physics and maths in his office. We have a blackboard wall in the studio as well. It is full of empty frames.

Playing around with some graphics this afternoon for holiday web stuff and trying some new things out. I'm not much of a graphic designer and have no idea how half this stuff works but I decided to change the header in the name of procrastination, just to redecorate a little and because I liked that picture of one of our studio walls.

For your sweet mentions this week...Thank you Melissa Loves for adding me to this. Looks so nice and your words are so touching... and to High Desert Diva for loving this
Thanks. You're so nice.
I put a few new holiday pieces up on the site today as well...
If you mention either Melissa Loves or High Desert Diva in your email, these little earrings (called the Holiday Petite Historiettes!) will be half off until December 10th....ooooo!

The Wednesday Food Section of the New York Times had my mouth watering and while Mark Bittman had some nice sweet potato offerings, last weekend we made this little dish for Namiko's Birthday lunch to go with a beautiful roasted ham made by Tomoko. We all agreed it had Thanksgiving written all over it. Plus I think we got pretty artistic with the top (we had started to cut the squash in pretty circles until we stopped ourselves when we decided to try this...we can be quite spontaneous go with the flow kind of folks when we want to be).
The varieties of squash and sweet potato don't matter (what's the difference between a sweet potato and a yam anyway?) --whatever looks good at your local market, as long as everything is cubed the same size--I love the way honey, lime juice and mint come together---for me it's a little memory of Summer in the Fall and the flavors brighten up anything else on your plate. I'm a huge fan of sweet and savory together. The herbs you use don't matter as long they're fresh---Sage and thyme would be just as nice and very Thanksgiving-y--just omit the lime juice and add a dash of sea salt and a splash of sherry vinegar...

Yesterday was my friend Namiko's 4th birthday party. She collected all of the balloons clinging to the ceiling and went into her parents room to jump up and down on the bed. She is truly a girl after my own heart.
Don't forget tonight is the last night to leave a comment to enter into our little Bonbon giveaway! I'll post the winner tomorrow and I just decided to have another giveaway before the holidays because last week we made some really pretty new pieces that I'll post about next week (and I really like to hear all about you and I really like to give things away...)
