just say no(vember)

November is a vintage brooch - topaz, amber, citrine - pinned to the lapel of a nubby wool jacket. And I'm not quite ready to take her off yet, or trade her in for the velvets and sequins of December. Nowadays it seems like the calendar turns as soon as the Thanksgiving dishes are cleared from the table, hurling us headlong into the holidays. But there's still a bit of November remaining, an entire day worth snatching back from the fray. Time for a bit more thanks and for giving thought to truly making a jewel of December.

Nicely said. I think if we all slow up a bit we'll enjoy the season for the reason. November has been over the top BEAUTIFUL.
