Thanksgiving Blessings and Gratitude...
As quickly as the hours are turning from morning to night and back again to morning I feel I need to post my Thanksgiving photos and savor them for a few days. I don't normally go for trendy pieces but this Jim Shore Pumpkin really spoke to me several years ago at an after holiday sale. It is my focal piece and reminds us to "Count Your Blessings".
I am not big on decorating for holidays so this is my only vignette. One simple sofa-back table with some of my very favorite pumpkins displayed. Most of these have been gifted to my by special friends over the years. Now if you happen to spot Mr. Frankenstein...well...he is just having some leftover fun from halloween. He insisted on coming home with me one day from a church thrift store. Now how could I resist his charm?!!
This painted gourd is one of my favorites and I have shared it before. The little mouse peeking at me from the side is my favorite. I am grateful for the many memories these pieces all have.
A couple of years ago I was very fortunate to be gifted by Mr. C this lovely "Harvest Nest" created by the very special Vicki of Two Bags Full blog. I look forward to displaying this each Fall/Autumn.
May all who celebrate Thanksgiving share blessings and gratitude with family and friends. Mr. C and I will be home enjoying a small intimate celebration. No crazy crowded shopping for us.
Our weather is clear but we do have some rain in the upcoming weekend plans. Unfortunately we must travel by car on Saturday and Sunday. We will hold prayers for our safety.
May everyone all over this world stay safe and be grateful for every day of life.
Now to find precious time to create and enjoy all the wonder of this holiday season. Sharing Joy and Peace...
