Let the Season Begin

*

Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful.
Yesterday, in the midst of all the cooking, there were games and laughter, in the other room and people in and out of my little kitchen. Then, I was alone for a minute when everyone went out for a walk before dinner.
I thought about how thankful I am for my new home, made truly a home by Jim and Icky and Maxine and all the sunlight that pours in and good friends who come over. I am thankful for such good friends, my warm family, my amazing assistant Vanessa, my loyal customers and the people who keep coming over to this blog who still believe in me, even when I'm not my best self, my most productive self, when I'm just my just ok self, the one who tries and fails and sometimes the one who is too tired to try. It felt so good to cook for family and friends yesterday, to be with my mom. I felt like my best self there in that room.


I owe a debt of gratitude to my incredibly generous, supportive and let's not forget talented husband for shooting the above photos this week, and my sweet friend Tamika for saying yes and breathing so much beauty into my bonbons a few days ago. A few photos from our last shoot with her for our new Golden Lining and Etoiles du Monde Collections, above. But this isn't the Academy Awards...

This Saturday begins Bonbon's first weekend back at the Brooklyn Flea which is back indoors at the spectacular One Hanson in Fort Greene. We'll be there every weekend with pretty new things each week. There's also a few extra holiday shopping days in December so be sure to mark them down via the Brooklyn Flea site! This Saturday, November 26th we're teaming up with American Express for Small Business Saturday. Hopefully you can come and see us!

Wednesday, November 30th be sure to sign up Fab.com where we'll have a holiday flash sale for three days only. Very new things abound.
