~HAPPY THANKSGIVING~

Hello, dear friends!

In honor of Thanksgiving, I decided to change up my kitchen window using my treasured yellow ware bowls!  They offer not only a splash of wonderful color, but are perfect places for display!

An old scale is the perfect perch for a brown striped bowl filled with a dried gourd!

 
Love the mellow color of this old butter mold!
 
Another striped bowl, home to my handmade pumpkin!

This bowl is my oldest and smallest one, a treasured gift from a dear friend!!  Love the brown stripes on this beauty!

A great place to hold old butter paddles!

The rust and white stripes really stand out next to this butter mold!

Old and worn patina!

Such a fun place to display!

**************

Wishing all of you a very Safe, Happy, and Blessed Thanksgiving.....

From my home to yours~~~

~ SWEET NOVEMBER ~

According to my Legacy Calendar this morning, it is officially November!! 


 Isn't this picture lovely?!

~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~

This month is a time for being THANKFUL for all the blessings of the past year, for family, for friends, and for what means the most to you!!  


Speaking of family, I will be boarding a plane tomorrow for North Carolina, for a visit with my Mom and two sisters!!  I can't believe it has been a year and a half since my last visit, and we have so much to catch up on!!  If you listen closely, no doubt you will hear all the laughter!!!  It promises to be a most wonderful time, indeed!  I will be gone 10 days, but know they will go by quickly and want to make the most of my time there!!!  We may even have our own little THANKSGIVING CELEBRATION early, and then I get to celebrate another when I get back!!!  That is what I call a DOUBLE BLESSING!!!

~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~

I am also thankful for all of you who take the time to stop by, leave sweet comments, support my work, and want to be a part of my life!!  It makes my heart sing!!


Wishing you a truly SWEET NOVEMBER, dear friends~~
