HAPPY THANKSGIVING 2008

HAPPY THANKSGIVING 2008


I just wanted to take this opportunity to say Happy Thanksgiving to all my special friends. I suspect we will all be busy today, but just wanted you to know that I have already asked God to bless all of my sweet friends, especially my blogging buddies, as I am so very thankful for each & every one of you.

We will be celebrating the day with our daughter & her family. Her birthday is also today, so along with all the pies there will of course be birthday cake! I'll be sure to make lots of pictures to share, as she is the most beautiful & VERY expectant daughter ever!!!

Just wanted to share a little of my Thanksgiving decor with you! Enjoy!


Blingy acorns in my favorite apothecary jar on one of our antique mirrors used as a plateau mirror


My very favorite Tday piece that I purchased at a sweet couple's booth that I shared a space next to at a craft show we did about 5 years ago


A Gurley Turkey candle




My sweet little Gurley Candle Pilgrim Couple




A fun Gobble Gobble
My sweet Indian Couple




I LOVE white pumpkins


And gold & silver ones, too!




I tried to add my pictures as if you were walking in through our front door & from room to room, but somehow they got all jumbled & I'm too sleepy to rearrange them. Besides, this way you can enlarge them if you see something you want a closer look at, & I've found that if I rearrange them they seem to lose that ability to be enlarged.

A sweet new (to me) blogger named Lisa of Stop and Smell the Chocolates sent me the most wonderful prize for leaving a comment on her terrific blog last month, so I'm posting pictures of all the items she sent me below. Please stop by her blog as it is so fun & uplifting. It is chock full of great pictures, interesting facts, & yummy recipes (see the Nov. 21st post for a great Chocolate Pecans recipe!), and CHOCOLATE!!!! What more could a girl ask for?!?!

Lisa, I simply adore everything you sent, but my very favorite item has to be the wonderful recipe book, as it has come in quite handy this season! And my VERY favorite thing is your super poem!!! I'll treasure it always, my talented new friend!




This pic was just too cute not to share!

May you & your family be blessed with a wonderful & bountiful Thanksgiving. A day of fellowship, terrific food, & sweet memories.


Happy Birthday, Bree ~ I love you so very much!

Thanksgiving Blessings & Hugs to all!
