Today is Green Gift Monday, a day established to help frenzied Cyber Monday shoppers divert their spending toward greener products and causes. I can’t think of a better time to introduce you to the Macy’s Heart of Haiti product line.
Heart of Haiti is a collection of art, housewares and accessories handmade by Haitian artisans in an attempt to help them get back on their feet after the historic earthquake that shook the island nation in January. The earthquake made it virtually impossible for Haitians to make a living. When you buy one of these pieces, it directly benefits the Haitian artisans who created them. They receive 22% of the retail price for each item in the collection. This sustainable income will allow these artisans to repair homes, pay for their children’s schooling, and feed and clothe their families. :: READ THE FULL POST

I have never been big on setting the table for momentous family meals like Thanksgiving and Christmas. By the time I’m done cooking, all I really want to do is sit, eat and relax. I tend to care very little about how the table looks at that point. But from now on, I really want the holidays in the Petersen home to be as beautiful as they are in my head. :: READ THE FULL POST

After I have spent all day in the kitchen over a hot oven and stove, the last thing I want to think about is how to make our place settings look nice or about lighting candles for ambience.

So here are some tips for making your Thanksgiving table sustainable: :: READ THE FULL POST
