We are traveling to Vermont for Thanksgiving at my mother’s home. We might be having snow on the way, and there might be snow during our visit. Now it is really beginning to feel like the season.
Now while I am away there is Thankful Thursday at Rhondi’s Rose Colored Glasses, a wonderful expression of Thanks for Thankgsving.
I am thankful for the opportunity to get together with mother this Thanksgiving. She is 82 years old and I cherish time with her, and I know my daughters do too. I still miss my Grandma, especially this time of year. I can still taste my Grandma’s gravy on her mashed potatoes. She taught me how to make an awesome apple pie, which I am bringing to my mom’s. My sister, Susan is meeting me there, and I am thankful to be able to spend time with her too.
Oh, and there is Hopeful Friday. A lovely day filled with posts written about Hope.
Cielo at The House in The Roses hosts, and I found this scripture of Hope that I would like to share. Cielo is such an inspiration and her blog is such a beautiful place to visit.
"Shout to the Lord, all the earth, serve the Lord with joy; come before Him with singing. Know that the Lord is God. He made us, and we belong to Him; we are His people, the sheep He tends. Come into His city wiith songs of thanksgiving and into His courtyards with songs of praise. Thank Him and praise His name. The Lord is good. His love is forever, and His loyalty goes on and on."
Psalm 100, A psalm of thanks
Of course there is Pink Saturday, hosted by Bev from How Sweet The Sound, and I have a PINK gift for you. I am so thankful for all the wonderful friends that I have met on this delightful event.
I was inspired by a beautiful book called Sew Pretty Christmas Homestyle. They have a pattern for a nesting doll. Since I cannot sew yet, I used this lovely inspiration to create paper designs. Then I created these little Babushka Nesting dolls especially for you. There are three sheets filled with the designs. I thought they would make such nice tags or perhaps you might include them on a greeting card or in your crafts. I cut some out and hole punched them together with a ribbon to make a tag for a gift.
If anyone would like me to send these to you, just leave a comment with your e-mail address and I’ll e-mail you the designs. If you know how to click on the image and save it to your computer, please do, they are my gift. I'll be checking my blog when I return on Sunday, so I can e-mail these files to those comment requests.
Here are what the three sheets look like, if you click on each one you can enlarge it to have a closer look:
I wish you a wonderful Thankful Thursday and a beautiful Hopeful Friday and a very very Happy Pink Saturday.
Most of all, I wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!
