Thanksgiving Blessings & Gratitude...
As our Thanksgiving approaches I am feeling blessed and grateful. Although this has been a difficult year I am thankful for all I have.
This little turkey is ready to set the table and let the guest know where to sit. Very simple to make. One circle of fabric gathered yo-yo style. A piece of felt cut into a light bulb shape for the body. Little black beads for the eyes. Some orange/red paint for the chin and a small piece of toothpick for the beak. Glue it all together and with a strip of card stock you can write the name of your guest.
Here is my little gathering of place cards. Pretty cute if I say so myself.
This year I set out some of my favorite Fall/Autumn treasures. It is comforting to be able to enjoy them.
Nothing grand or over-the-top. Mr. C does not enjoy holidays or displays so I keep it small and out of the way. This is a wood and glass table and stools he built many years ago. Makes my little treasures all the more special to me.
This is the overall view. Each year I seem to add a new pumpkin to the lot. This year it was the glass jar which is holding leaves. My friend Sylvia gave it to me filled with Reeses Peanut Butter Cups! Those are long gone into our tummies. My bad. Thank you Sylvia Dear.
Also this year I was fortunate to be able to add this knitted nest from Vicki of 2bagsfull blog. Mr. C actually bought this for me and I am thrilled. It is the creative touch that I cherish.
May each of you enjoy your Thanksgiving and enjoy family and friends during this time of grateful blessings. For all of you outside our United States may you enjoy grateful blessings even though you do not have our Thanksgiving holiday.
Creative Hugs to all...
