Halloween and Martinmas have come and gone. If you live in the US you are probably preparing for Thanksgiving which is only less than two weeks away. Here is some Thanksgiving inspiration I’ve come across this week.

Savory Autumn Leaf Pies… I made these and they were yummy!

Beeswax leaves would make a lovely (and sweet smelling) decoration

♥Some vegetarian Thanksgiving recipes

Beautiful for the table

♥Thanksgiving songs

Apple pie baked in the apple

♥Make a gratitude tree
