Oh my goodness, we are less than one week from Thanksgiving! Who is ready?
Not by a long shot.
This week I shared a delicious treat you could make for the holidays – Sweet Potato Cranberry Doughnuts. They feed a crowd!
I also shared one last autumn idea – painted acorn tic tac toe. If you set this out during the holidays, I guarantee someone will play!
Here’s the Happy List!
If I had to pick a favorite house right this second, I would pick The Lilypad Cottage in Michigan.

BEFORE AND AFTER
I am so inspired and amazed by the potential some people can see in a project.
This is from Livingstone Construction’s website.
Here’s the before…
Here’s the after…

Can you even believe that is the same house?

CUSTOM HOUSE EMBROIDERY
Speaking of houses…
This custom house embroidery by SasssyStitcher on Etsy is a super great gift idea.
(And no, I didn’t spell that incorrectly!)
RIBBON TREE ORNAMENT
Ribbon and twigs! Such a cute DIY ornament idea by Fireflies and Mudpies!

MAKE AHEAD CRANBERRY SAUCE
I’m going to be making this Make Ahead Cranberry Sauce by Ina Garten for Thanksgiving.
How can I go wrong with an Ina Garten recipe? User error, that’s how! But that
probably won’t happen!

I do like statement pieces and a 45-inch wreath is a statement maker!
The wreath caught my eye because I recently saw it on a photoshoot done for Target and styled by Emily Henderson. The wreath looks waaaay better in Emily’s pictures, by the way.
Also, I think this wreath could be DIY’d with a hula hoop for a lot cheaper than 50 bucks.
SHEET MUSIC PERFECTION
You guys know I’m a sucker for anything with sheet music.

I thought Julie Blanner’s idea from a couple of years ago to create a Thanksgiving Playlist was a great idea!
Here’s her Spotify playlist and I think I’m just going to borrow it! Also, she sets a pretty table, doesn’t she?
