This week we celebrate Thanksgiving here in the US. Many will worship, others will cook for days, some will fix a simple meal, while others will have to work. As to the last option, I wish everyone had the choice as to how to spend Thanksgiving, and it didn’t include working.
We’ll have dinner with family, and the company and the conversation will be the highpoint. I know whatever the menu includes I will enjoy it and not go away hungry, but I may go away with some wonderful leftovers.
This is a tree made out of the mounted patrol horse shoes. I’ve added some tiny lights on it so it’s spreading holiday cheer right now. No, the wall isn’t black, but there was glass behind it, and I couldn’t get a decent photo without the backdrop. 🙂
It’s sitting on a simple buffalo plaid runner I made this year.
I also brought the small wooden nativity set down and created a simple but sparkly white runner for under it. I have a large ceramic set our family made many years ago. Each piece is a work of art, but it takes two men and a boy to get it down from the attic.
I finished a few mug rugs and a table topper, and I’m working on a holiday wall hanging right now. I like to send small gifts meant to express my friendship. They’re no great work of art, just some time spent thinking about special people.
The weather here has certainly provided plenty of moisture recently. I wish we could send some to our friends in Australia as they fight those devastating fires. I pray they all stay safe.
Before I go, I send you the very best of wishes for a great week and a Happy, Happy Thanksgiving.
It is always good to stop and take a moment this week and give thanks for our many blessings and one of mine is the blogging community and all the creative and interesting friends I’ve made here. Thank you for being you. ❤️
