Thanksgiving Break

Thursday:  Happy belated Thanksgiving!  Ours was tasty, lazy, and pretty darn great.  My mom is the best cook.......

Friday:  Yesterday, the cleaning beast came out again, and you would not believe the progress I made on the special room.  The mister was even impressed.  I was able to add quite a few tally marks to my donate, trash, and garage sale totals.

We also had our annual "Friendsgiving" with some of the mister's crew, where he attempted to carve the turkey.....

Saturday:  It rained.  I had no desire to get out really.  And with this clean house, I got the hankering to get my Christmas decorating on.......

A little Christmas in the kitchen, inspired by Pinterest.

My bottle brush tree collection in the entry!

But then I did get out.  And was reminded why I don't do Black Friday.  A trip to Joann's for a little craftiness almost sent me to the loony bin.

I just wanted a few yards of red burlap.    

All's well that ends well though.  I have my burlap.

And I'm gonna get my craftiness on.  Here's a little sneak peek.........

Stay tuned!!!


  1. Your Thanksgiving dinner plate always looks so good. I think I still dream about the picture from last years too.

  2. I just decided to decorate on top of the dirt. Just figured it would get dirty again. I think you & Andrea are the ones who got me hooked on Pinterest. What a wealth of ideas! Good luck with the decorating.

  3. Can't wait to see what you are making!

  4. love the bottle brush tree collection!
