Who is eating turkey this Thanksgiving weekend?
HIC turkey platter, $25

For the third year in a row I will be cooking up a Thanksgiving feast (with the help of Martha Stewart, of course). Wish me luck!
I’m gearing up for a few weeks of travel…beginning with a trip back to Florida…today! Hooray! I am so looking forward to some quality beach time so let’s hope the sun continues to shine!
Here are some thoughts about my trip – with the help of Mark Addison Smith‘s amusing illustrations:
So…here I go, off to the United States again…
I haven’t packed any lotions, gels, drinks or food because I’m not sure if…
because I’ll have a tan.

Would it be so wrong if I spoiled you with five photos from a gorgeous apartment in Paris? Nah, I didn’t think so.
If you’re in Paris and need a place to stay, you can rent out this beautiful space on AirBnB.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Before we all head off to enjoy the weekend I thought I would end the week with some gorgeous outdoor spaces. They all have one major thing in common – a shower!

What do you think? Would you make use of an outdoor shower? Perhaps you already have one at your home or cottage. Do tell!
Have a wonderful weekend!
I don’t know about you but I love a beautifully set table. I think my appreciation of table settings may have started when I was a 16 year old exchange student in France. In the family that I lived with it was the responsibility of the youngest son to set the table each evening. I think he was 9 years old at the time and I remember being surprised at how he took such care in setting each place. The cutlery was where it was supposed to be and each family member had a designated cloth napkin which he would arrange thoughtfully at each place. (I’m pretty sure when I was 9, I didn’t care much about how the table was set – even though it was one of my chores too.)
While I can’t say that my own table is perfectly set for each meal, I can say that I love setting a pretty table to welcome guests. The four table settings featured today are beautiful because, while they do differ, they are all inviting, well-presented, and – best of all – they are simple enough to recreate in my own home! The last image of a table setting how-to (for anyone who still can’t figure out the salad fork from the meat fork) completes today’s Friday Five.
