But how to sum up all of this, and the holiday, into a jewelry post? I'd thought to do something with pumpkins, and found an antique tea set on 1st Dibs (where else?) that was not cutesy.

But the set was a solitaire set (say it with a fancy French accent since it was made by a French silversmith) made for a bachelor's home use. That isn't right for Thanksgiving, when everyone should be with those they love, whether blood or not.
But then I found Meister Eckhart's quote: "If the only prayer you said in your whole life was 'Thank you,' that would suffice." That summed it up and made the jewelry choice clear.

We'll be saying, "Thank you," a lot this Thanksgiving. God bless you, dear reader, and have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving too.
