What Are You Wearing to Thanksgiving?

Zebra Textured Sweater

Because it’s only two weeks from yesterday if you live in the States and will be celebrating. Thanksgiving legitimately snuck up on me this year, which is unfortunate since it’s the holiday I host. I have no clue what I’ll be wearing either – most likely something from my closet that I add to. Maybe that’s your plan as well? A roomy shirt or sweater so you don’t have to suck it in, or a sweet dress that will transition well to all of those holiday parties next month, or just adding a great piece of jewelry to an outfit you already own to mix things up. All fine plans of action.

Have you carved your jack o’ lanterns already or are you waiting for the weekend? Ours probably won’t be done until a few days before Halloween, and I suspect they’ll be old school with faces. If that’s not your plan – maybe you’re looking for something a little more outside the box – check out these clever ideas for decorating your gourds!

Plant Sticks

 

It’s that time of year where a few plants I’ve brought in from the cold will rebel and give up the ghost – right now all bets are on a potted palm and a snake plant calling it a day. That means I’m paying extra attention to the health of all the others, and trying to prep them for winter as best I can. These solid brass plant sticks are a beautiful way to give them a little extra support where needed. They come as a set of three shapes and heights from 7- to 11-inches.

Pumpkin Seeds Two Ways

 

I’ve always wanted to try roasting my own pumpkin seeds and finally made it happen. We usually carve a few jack o’ lanterns, so there were more than enough seeds to go around and I was able to experiment with a few different flavor profiles – savory and sweet.

 

 

Sweet Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

• 2 C pumpkin seeds from a fresh pumpkin
• 2 tsp melted butter or olive oil
• 3 Tbsp maple syrup
• sea salt to taste

Preheat oven to 350°F. Rinse pumpkin seeds in a strainer, removing any remaining pulp by hand. Pat dry. Mix with melted butter or olive oil in a bowl before adding maple syrup and sea salt. Spread seeds evenly on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes or until light golden brown and crisp, stirring once. Cool completely before serving.

 

 

Savory Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

• 2 C pumpkin seeds from a fresh pumpkin
• 2 tsp melted butter or olive oil
• 1 tsp Italian seasoning
• sea salt to taste

Preheat oven to 350°F. Rinse pumpkin seeds in a strainer, removing any remaining pulp by hand. Pat dry. Mix with melted butter or olive oil in a bowl before adding Italian seasoning and sea salt. Spread seeds evenly on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes or until light golden brown and crisp, stirring once. Cool completely before serving.

Six Exceptional Light Sources

Circuit Chandlier is a two-dimensionally structured pendant with the ambiance of a chandelier inspired by the graphic expression of circuit boards. Andréason & Leibel partnered in this project with Csaba Humenyik of Humi, glass producer of custom made chemistry glass products.

 

Painterly Spectrum Resin Table Lamp brings colors and their associations into a space as an object. It’s made of epoxy resin that’s cast on the surface of parchment paper onto which different colored strokes are applied using latex paint. When it’s lit the light source makes abstract associations visible in a transient way.

 

Sun Lights is a series of lamps created by the exploration of the displacement of light. Inspired by sun-gazing, the muted light provides a warm glow with a color gradient similar to dawn and sunset. The like-absorbing acrylate, in combination with the dimmable LED illumination, provides subtle mood lighting, in which the reflection of the material creates depth. Available in a variety of color options.

 

Little Sun Diamond Outdoor Lamp features a crystalline faceted lens and is inspired by nature. This pocket-sized, featherweight, solar-powered LED lamp was conceived to bring clean, affordable light to 1.1 billion people living worldwide without electricity in off-grid areas. For those without electricity, it’s a clean, steadfast alternative to dangerous and polluting forms of light like kerosene lanterns. Every lamp sold delivers one Little Sun to an African community without electricity at a locally affordable price. Five hours of sunlight charging produces five hours of power.

 

Walter Table Light has a unique 1960s feel inspired by space age design, with a striking combination of either satin brass or satin copper and a choice of opal or anthracite glass shades. The lights are available in two sizes and they have an integral dimmer on the base.

 

The Voie light series is the result of an investigation into the manipulation of light-paths. Having chosen neon, the base creates an interception on the path the light follows through the marble base. Subtle nuances and the uniqueness of each block of stone are highlighted when lit-up.
