Fall and winter bring a bevy of holidays – no wonder it’s so many peoples favorite time of year! Halloween quickly gives way to Thanksgiving, which is pushed right out the door in order to make room for the biggies: Christmas and/or Hanukkah (depending on what you celebrate). But it doesn’t end there, as we then end with a bang for New Years Eve and, of course, celebrate a fresh start on New Years Day.
Right now, we’re gearing up for the foodies favorite – Thanksgiving. Growing up as the only vegetarian in my Southern family, I can’t say I was always over-exuberant about the holiday. I did, however, take great joy in decorating the house and celebrating in the spirit of thanks. This year, I am grateful for the time I spent working at Etsy – an amazing hub for handmade and vintage artists of all stripes and nationalities. I am also grateful for the opportunity to share so many of my amazing online finds and treasured artisan shops with the fine readers of Care2! This week, we’re sharing a collection of adorable handmade Thanksgiving decorations for your home. We hope the projects shown here spark some creativity in you, but if you’re going to buy – it’s always good to buy handmade. Happy Thanksgiving!
