Hi again! Did you have a good day? After a day of preparing lunches, cooking dinner, folding laundry, answering emails, driving kids from here to there, picking up groceries, or having meeting after meeting, I think you deserve a little break.
So grab a cup of tea (or beverage of choice) and join us for Happy Hour!
I've always loved the look of fresh wreaths and this week I shared a pretty little apple wreath using natural items from our yard. Even though our Thanksgiving was over a month ago, I wanted to share some ideas to hopefully inspire a beautiful Thanksgiving at your home. Starting with a mini burlap sack table place setting. So easy and so cute. I also shared the 'thankful walnut'. This is a great way to initiate a meaningful conversation and ponder on things that we should be thankful for. And lastly, I took advantage of a rare sunny day and made a delicious grilled vegetable salad for lunch...yum!
On the home front, we finally bought a new Christmas tree...after 16 years! It's so pretty and I can't wait to decorate it. Having a new tree at home has given me the Christmas decorating itch but I'm afraid that if I start too early all the greens would be dried out by the time Christmas rolls around, so I think I'll have to wait a couple more weeks.
Oh...I almost forgot to tell you that my mom lent me her sewing machine indefinitely and I am slowly starting to conquer my fear of it. With a little help of YouTube, I was able to thread my bobbin. Sad, I know, but I was so proud of myself :) I'll show you what I made next week!
Now let's see what Taryn has been up to....
Our sweet Jaime has not been feeling very well of late and took a well deserved break. But she's starting to feel a little better and can't wait to get started with her crafting again! Take your time Jaime, we're not going anywhere!
And now it's now time to party!
