Because No One Should Go Hungry on Thanksgiving

(original photo via Gourmet)
My month-long exercise in thankfulness is rapidly coming to a close, but before the month is up I have to give thanks for the basic necessities--food, shelter, clothing--that I've never been without. However I can't let the opportunity pass without pointing out that many among us aren't as fortunate.

According to the USDA, 15% of American households are "food insecure," meaning that they are uncertain of having or unable to provide enough food to meet the needs of everyone in the home. That's over 50 million people without enough to eat each day. These are our neighbors, our family, our friends, our fellow Americans.

A Month of Thankfulness: Michele of My Notting Hill

Is it just me or is November flying by quickly? This week, I've got a pair of Michelles (actually, Michele and Michelle) guest posting on the theme of thankfulness--isn't that great?

Today, the very talented Michele of My Notting Hill is here and I'm tickled at the way she ran with the theme of thankfulness, how she sees it in some very special mementos around her home.

Prepping the Jadeite Bathroom for Holiday Guests

Meet Me in Philadelphia
Call me crazy for taking on a room redo this time of year, but Adam and I are tackling our charming vintage green bathroom just in time for Christmas!

We will be hosting my parents, brother, sister-in-law and niece for the big holiday for the first time. As a result, I want to get the cutest bathroom in our house functional (it's the only bathroom in our house that isn't!). The bones of the space are really special.

While the 'befores' leave plenty of room for improvement, let's talk about my plans for the 'after'.

Have Yourself an Etsy Holiday

Meet Me in Philadelphia
Have you started your holiday shopping yet, readers? While I vowed to enjoy November in my month-long thankfulness series, I have been sewing and stocking my Etsy shop all month long to prepare for the shopping season. 

Since opening the Meet Me in Philadelphia Etsy shop in August, I have experienced steady sales and repeat customers. As a 'thank you' for the support, I am highlighting my favorite items in the shop today and offering a discount code to give you a jump start on your Etsy holiday shopping!

Meet Me on the US Blog!

Today's post is a quick, happy one for me: my den and I are featured on the blog of US!
The very friendly ladies at US reached out to me in early October after my den reveal, asked if I would allow them to share photos of my den and Bluebell sofa on their "Comfy" blog, and offered to sponsor the lovely pillow giveaway from last week. Yes and yes, of course!

Run over and see the post...perhaps you'll see more from me on the US blog soon, too.

Continuing with the theme of November, today I am thankful for:
The support from quality corporate partners. I'm not into marketing myself or this blog (I'm okay with that) so I'm incredibly flattered when products/designers/companies I believe in reach out to me because they find value in the content I'm producing here. Thank you, US!

My Latest Craiglist Finds

Meet Me in Philadelphia
I don't like to brag because I'm convinced it's bad karma, but last week I made out like a bandit on Craigslist. Combined, my two finds were just over $100 which is a pittance compared to the beauty and function they add to our home. Let me show them to you!

Today is the first day of November. Many of us are experiencing a subtle sugar hangover from Halloween or are starting to gather Thanksgiving side dish ideas; but here on Meet Me in Philadelphia, November means something a little different.

All month long, my posts will reflect the theme of thankfulness and gratitude for the many blessings I experience every day. Let me tell you all about it after the jump.
