STORM THAT BASTILLE
I made these. Because Christmas cards are sooooo yesteryear.
And yep, I did indeed buy the Ladybird Johnson special edition stamps to go on the envelopes.

sometimes, you know exactly who’s coming to dinner.
orphan friends will flock to the upper west side
for turkey and stuff —
"you’ve got thanksgiving," we’ll call it,
with meg and tom on the mind.
it’s wholly nonsensical. but then, so is the meal,
and this holiday, in general.
so i’ll bring the pie, and the place cards.
Today I made a thing. It was pretty good. So, I’ll post it here.
Now, I don’t have any rustic plates or chalkboard-painted tables or fancy cameras, so bear with me on this. Also, I do not, nor have I ever, proclaimed to be a “food blogger.” Whatever.
