It's that time of year again!

It's getting to be that time of year again! I just love Thanksgiving! Getting together with your family and friends and eating a HUGE dinner with lots of desserts too. Thanking the Lord for all your blessings! In our home, its always the gals in the kitchen cooking and talking and laughing and the guys in the living room watching football on TV. The grandkids running around having fun! Its just great! This year my sister and her husband and our dear friends from Washington are coming here! My daughter and family were going to come, but they are about 900 miles away and cannot afford to travel at this time (boy the economy stinks, don't you think!) But we will call and I'll be able to see them via the web cam!
We have some friends coming next weekend from California to visit. They will only be here for a day, but it will be so nice to see them again! And then I need to prepare for our guests at Thanksgiving! I have a lot of cleaning and cooking to do! We are expecting snow in the next couple of days so I had better get moving now!!


I am working on some Christmas chandelier shades that will be on Etsy before the holidays too. I'll show them to you'all when I get them done! Also, I joined the Vintage Christmas Swap given by Heidi Ann at http://foxglovesfabricandfolly.blogspot.com/ and I have a sweet swap partner, Missy, who has http://fairychildheirlooms.wordpress.com/. this is the first time I've done a swap and it should be a lot of fun! Heidi and Missy are very sweet gals and a lot of fun!

So, bye for now and have a great weekend!

Hi Marilyn - Hope you have a wonderful time with your guests. Snow in the next couple of days, huh? Wish I lived close enough to stop by and enjoy the beauty from inside your home. Maybe one of these days soon. Don't know when I'll be in your area to visit my sweetheart's family but it will happen sometime, I'm sure. ~Adrienne~

Yes, it is! And why is it that the holidays always take me by surprise each year?!

Hi, how are you doing over there?? Getting a little chilly? We had frost on the roofs this morning. Have a great time with your friends. As far as my spoons, some people tape off the handle and spray with a metal primer, then just you Delta or Americana paints, then varnish. I would love to see what you do!! If you scroll down on my blog, I made a list of how I make the spoons. Laurie
