Other People's Blogs

Happy Thanksgiving weekend, fellow Americans! And just plain ole happy weekend to everyone else! The weather here in the SE is starting to really feel like fall/winter and we had our first real temp dip yesterday (aka, boy was I caught without a coat - brrrr!) so I am finally admitting to myself that it is unofficially winter!

So for this week's (or heck, this month's) long overdue cool stuff from other people's blog post, I collected together some great miscellany that are also helping me get into the festive, cool, snuggly state of mind:
