I wanted to let everyone know how grateful I am for you. I am so thankful for my family, for the one I was born into, for the one I married into and most especially for the one I have with my loving husband. I am grateful to all of you who take time out of your busy day to visit my site. You’ll never know how much your comments and support mean to me. I hope everyone has a happy and safe Thanksgiving!

This week’s Olioboard is something I came up with for Thanksgiving. Over at Olioboard they are having a contest for a Thanksgiving board. They don’t give prizes for winning, (you do get a little trophy to display on your sidebar) you have to be happy with bragging rights. I guess it’s not really all that different from blogging. I don’t earn any money from this blog. I just keep on keeping on because it’s fun and I love reading everyone’s comments. I also like collecting buttons for my sidebar. Yeah, I know it’s a little dorky but that’s who I am, that’s what I love. And in the vein of giving thanks, I am thankful to be blessed enough to follow my passions.

Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays. A whole guilt-free day of eating my favorite foods, no school or work, and just a stress-free (well mostly stress-free) time enjoying the things I’m most thankful for (my family). Most of the Thanksgiving/Fall decorations I own are on the mantle. I am slowly making more. The only true Thanksgiving decorations up there are the cornucopia and the turkey.
Here is a closer look at my little wire turkey. I bought him 12-13 years ago at a boutique sale. I recently bought the cornucopia at my favorite thrift shop. I just filled them with the things I had leftover from my Fall decorations. I will be posting more of my Thanksgiving decorations soon. Have a happy week everyone!

I hope you are surrounded by loved ones and delicious aromas. I just wanted to take a moment and share a few photos of our Thanksgiving table. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I kept my Thanksgiving decorations simple and natural this year. I used gourds, apples, oranges, grapes, pinecones, and branches from my yard. Not only did it make decorating a snap, it also kept my budget in check. Decorating three rooms inside my home only cost about $8.00. Above and below are pictures of my living room.
Here is a picture of my dining room featuring my centerpiece.
And this last picture is of my kitchen.
Happy Thanksgiving and happy decorating!
