Roberta's pizza

What are you up to this weekend? We are taking long walks around the neighborhood and admiring all the holiday decorations that are already up. (Love that people are starting early.) Thank you also for being excited about our gift guides, in which we are featuring many small businesses. More coming up next week! Have a good one, and here are a few links from around the web…

LOVE this miracle beauty product.

Anonymous Obama gets some ice cream.

Also, how rad is this photo of Obama? (Brava, Shaniqwa Jarvis.)

This sweatshirt made me laugh out loud.

Zoom announced no time limits on family video get-togethers on Thanksgiving. Made me teary!

Send this song to your family if they don’t understand why you aren’t traveling for Thanksgiving.

This stuffing taste test had a clear winner. Boom!

A delicious dinner bowl.

A video with the costume designer of The Crown.

How cool would it be to see these humpback whales?

Bonus: Nisolo is giving COJ early access to Black Friday with code COJHOLIDAY.

Plus, a reader comment:

Says Leslie on the 2020 holiday gift guides: “I love your gift guides! Joanna, would you ever consider a list of COJ makers? Or maybe just a post where people could comment with their product and website? I’m not sure how many of your readers are also makers, but I know I would love to support them with my dollars. (As a tiny mom-and-pop shop, my husband and I are grateful for every single customer.) It’s been a rough year for everyone (us included – people don’t really need belts to hold up their sweats on Zoom, lol!), and I figured it might be nice to be able to support others. Thank you!” So, please, if you’re a maker or have a shop, leave a comment below! xoxoxo
