I have been a fan of Etsy for a long time. It is a wonderful home for independent artists and crafters who sell handmade and vintage items. I chose a few felted ornaments that caught my eye – they would all be wonderful additions to someone’s home.

If your stomach needs something not turkey or pumpkin flavored as a direct result of yesterday’s meal, I recommend this beautiful breakfast salad from The Endless Meal. I love flexible recipes, and this certainly is one since you can include your favorite vegetables in the mix.
Your friends at When You Wake Up hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and are able to spend time with the people you love.
This is the first in a three part series by a new guest poster, our friend Hannah T. (aka Baby Sheep). These are her recommendations for some of Disney’s best adventure films:
The Great Mouse Detective (1986) – An old favorite, if you’re any kind of Sherlock Holmes fan then this is the animated film for you.
The Rescuers (1977) – This classic is packed with adventure and suspense as two members of the Rescue Aid Society as they set out to save a young orphan from an evil treasure huntress.
Peter Pan (1953) – Who doesn’t love pirates and fairies and flying to an island far far away?
Atlantis (2001) – The riveting story of a dedicated nerd, a crew of misfits, and an ancient underwater civilization.
