Happy Thanksgiving!! I am so thankful for so many wonderful things in my life. Even though I count my blessings every night before I go to bed, I love having a full day to dedicate to being thankful and to gathering my family and friends to celebrate all our blessings. And of course, a pretty tablescape helps make this day even more special.
The winner for the Minted $250 giveaway is Megan Myers. So excited for you!! I will be in touch right away with further details.
Wishing you all a happy, festive, delicious and safe Thanksgiving day.

I'm so excited to bring you a fabulous giveaway today from Minted. They are offering one lucky Mimosa Lane reader a $250 credit. This is so perfect, and just in time to fill your Holiday card needs. I have adored Minted and their amazing selection of Holiday cards ever since I discovered them six years ago. I think I was one of the early adopters and ever since I have been a loyal customer. All their card options are amazing, making it very difficult to chose THE card each year. I'm particularly excited about this year's choice because it is gold foil pressed, a new option. I just love how they turned out. But wait, Minted has so much more than just Holiday cards.
Ever since I saw this all I want to do is go to Ikea get me a sheep skin and dye it pink! It could be done right? What is it about pink fluffy things anyway? If I'm feeling brave during Thanksgiving break I will try it and let you know how the experiment goes. But I'm not sure I have a large enough pot to do this....hmmmm....While I think this through here are a few links before you go off on your Thanksgiving vacation.
I can't even believe I'm posting this, but since next week I plan on taking it easy on the blogging side I thought I could help you all get started thinking about little presents for all those loved ones on your list. I hope you find these helpful. And if you have suggestions for specific gift guides let me know!
Can you believe Thanksgiving is only a week away!? Oh my! We are in full swing planning our menu, but I had to share this recipe with you and really hope you will try it this holiday season because it is AMAZING. Our very good and old family friends (I'm talking the equivalent of family) make this chutney every year. We usually spend either Christmas or Thanksgiving with them, and even if we don't they always send along a jar of their famous cranberry chutney. We await this care package as if it were a gold shipment or something just as precious. We have been celebrating alongside this delicious chutney for over 35 years! I asked permission to share this recipe with you all since its a cherished family secret, so know this post is an act of love toward you all and is the Thanksgiving turkey's best friend.
Simplification is a good thing this time of year. With so many errands to run right before the Holidays any little extra help is greatly appreciated and can go a long way. We have our homes to prepare for the holidays and for family coming into town, school gatherings to volunteer in, festive functions to attend, family recipes to make, gifts to start crossing off the list....you are probably on the same boat and know exactly what I'm talking about. When I found out about Instantly Framed I was pleasantly surprised. They can print, frame and ship any photo from your phone, Instagram, or Facebook account. If you have a cute photo you want to print and frame there is no easier way to get it done. And for those hard-to-gift people on your list this is a great alternative. Instantly Framed will print, frame and ship it for you. Isn't it ideal?
