Having just come off Canadian Thanksgiving Day celebrations, and with our friends to the south of us getting set to celebrate their respective day in just a few weeks, naturally we’ve got being thankful at the forefront of our minds. For daily pleasures, our houses and homes, and most of all for our family and friends. In the spirit of giving, today we’re featuring one of favorite ways to honor those people and events we cherish most, by displaying mementos of memories we hold dear in our hearts, perfectly displayed in chic shadow boxes no less.
