This weekend myself and all my fellow Canadians are celebrating our thanksgiving…So Happy Thanksgiving!!! I hope it’s a wonderful time spent with family and friends and pumpkin pie 🙂

I have a lot to be thankful this year, from having an amazing husband, good health, job, family to my friends and new friends at the Toronto Vintage and Retro Society, my blog and of course my fantastic readers. Its been a very very good year and I’m very blessed.


Here is what I love about Thanksgiving itself:

# 1. Being with my family and having a real good time

  1. What a festively awesome post, dear gal!!! I really enjoyed reading about some of the highlights of this time of the year that you adore most (you’re so lucky to have a country fair to visit!). That photo of Judy and Mickey with the over sized wishbone has always been one of my favourte vintage photos of the season, too.

    Tons of hugs and the very happiest of Thanksgiving weekend wishes,
    ♥ Jessica
