Sitting here with a Vanilla Dream candle burning, the mist softly falling, and the dogs sleeping, I’m contemplate a nap.
Okay, I actually took a nap after I wrote that and now I’m back. LOL! It’s just a dreary Thanksgiving Eve and a good day for relaxing, especially if you don’t have to prepare for visitors or dinner.
Lately I’ve been trying to work with layers on some of my photo’s. Kate from over at Chronicles of a Country Girl has inspired me to learn. Guess you could say I’m thankful for YouTube and the great tutorials, as well as Flickr for the free textures!
… a healthy and loving family, a warm and comfortable home, the fact that I’ve been out of work for almost a month and we can still pay the bills, my mothers continued good health (she’s healing very well! The doctor said ‘better than most people who have had the same surgery’), a good strong stable marriage, the animals in our family who were all adopted and whose lives could have had a much different outcome, plenty of food in the cupboard and on our table, and as always, friends and family.
So, are you ready to turn the corner from Fall decor into Christmas pizzazz? Judging by the blogs out there I’d say many of you already have! I just can’t quite do it until Friday, it just doesn’t seem right. I have to ride Autumn’s wave as long as possible. The above photos were taken this morning.
Instructions are below. I plan on making this in the next few days but with a red velvet ribbon instead. My husband who loves flowers and plants thought it was a great idea too. We’ll see how it comes out. If you make it I’d love to see the results!
Okay, I’ve gone on long enough. I wish all of you a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving Day. Please be careful driving. It’s the most dangerous holiday of the year (article).
