A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS



Williams-Sonoma is one of my favorite stores. They have these turkey platters and some serving pieces along with table linens. Of course, turkeys being my favorite fowl, I had to have them. This platter weighs more than a turkey and they also have a round bowl platter to match. Yes, I got that one too; when will they ever have it again? It seems, I made my whole Christmas wish list from WS. Also, here is a product review. The concentrated Five Apple Cider mix is to die for. Crisp and not too sweet, it is the perfect cider. Of course, if you want, they have the mulling spices to go in it, but I think it would cover up the tart apple flavor too much, so I chose not to get it. This bottle mixes with up to one gallon of water, so the price ($20.50) isn't so bad if you price it per cup. It's only available during the holidays, so hurry down to pick up a bottle. I dropped the first bottle and broke it, so be careful with yours.

  1. I love Willams Sonoma too! Haven't been in awhile so your post was a great reminder. The cider really looks yummy. I bought a gallon at the groc. store recently and just couldn't drink it all before the due date, the concentrate would be perfect! I'm gonna say it again...I love your blog!

  2. Tell me your home at least smelled like cider for a while! I think turkey serving pieces are the most fun!

  4. Love Williams Sonoma also, I bought my English copper tea kettle there, and a Brown Betty teapot. They have some of the most unique items, I just get lost in the catalogue.
    Your turkey platter is so lovely, I bet it looks grand at Thanksgiving.
    The cider looks delicious, I've never heard of it though. I do try and buy the little bags of mulling spices and add cider to those. What a treat !
