We hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. Here are a few things that caught our eyes this week.
* Ashley English‘s Mini Manifesto of Epic Party Making on Dark Rye is the perfect intro to her forthcoming book Handmade Gatherings.
* A lovely interview with the even lovelier Ruth Reichl on the pleasures of the table, and how “we’ve become a food culture.”
* The Wilderness Festival is “A celebration of the Arts and Outdoors in the wilds of England”—it’s officially on our wishlist of things to do.
* These family portraits created by Anna Bond of Rifle Paper for Oh Joy! are such a cute idea for documenting your growing family.
