Let's Talk Turkey

 

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I can just taste that yummy pumpkin pie! Mmmm! And I bet you and your family are getting ready for this delicious American tradition as well!

However before you start digging into that Turkey wouldn't you like to know more about this holiday and why we celebrate it? Of course many of you know it was founded by the Pilgrims of Plymouth Rock and the Native Americans, but did you know that the holiday wasn't a national holiday until Abraham Lincoln declared it 1863? Also at the first Thanksgiving there wasn't any pumpkin pie served, instead it was just pumpkins minus the pie. I'm glad that tradition has changed!

Many of you know that this week is Halloween. However did you know that there is another national holiday celebrated a couple of days before All Hallows Eve? For all of you feline lovers, you'll be happy to know that October 29th is National Cat Day! Pet Lifestyle Expert & Animal Welfare Advocate, Colleen Paige, founded the day in 2005 as a day of awareness for the many homeless cats that desperately need good homes. She also wanted the day to be a celebration for cat owners and their fuzzy, little friends. To learn more about the day check out National Cat Day's website at: http://www.nationalcatday.com/about.htm
Here at Unique we even got into the spirit, with our very own Nate Hardy dressing up for the day!

Cheap Organization

Oh The Thrill of Being Organized

 

When first meeting me, you would never know, that one of my favorite things to do is walk through an organization store and image all things I cMad In Crafts, 100 Organization, Dollar Store, Home, Household, Cleaning, Inexpensive, Unique Natural Productsould do, to organize my home. However, the thing that keeps me from buying out the whole store, is of course the price. There are so many projects I would love to do, if only the prices weren't so steep.

Well if you are like me, I have the perfect solution for you! Jessica Hill, from Mad In Crafts, has come up with a list of 100 items you can purchase from the Dollar Store, to organize your entire house. It's completely ok to do double take with that last sentence; however, you did read it correctly! You can organize your entire home just by shopping at your local Dollar Store. That means more organizing for less cash!

So if you notice a decrease in blog posts, it's probably because I'm going crazy organizing my house!
