supermarket centerpiece

Bridget and I are gearing up for Thanksgiving in Brooklyn - I haven't seen her since her wedding in August, her parents haven't met June yet, AND....we will all be meeting Missy's baby for the first time!!! She should arrive any minute now.

Found this beautiful, rustic, and simple centerpiece idea on Design Sponge. Great idea with items you can pick up at the grocery store. Or at any of the corner markets in BKL. I actually have that oatmeal container, which I use as a flower vase.

  1. It is very confirming to see this engagement with design as informing serious work in the teaching of English. "Aesthetics preceeds ethics" and the meanings we derive from the range of texts about us are always already dependent upon endlessly fine-tuned degrees of proportion and juxtaposition. So writing and reading with your students becomes an affair of meaning and value to the extent that searches for the beautiful continue to derive energy from proactive engagements with the ugly.
