Giving Thanks...

As we Americans celebrate Thanksgiving,
Grateful for today.
Grateful for motherhood.
Grateful for life & love & all those things that make existence worthwhile.
Grateful for delicious food (stuffing, potatoes, cream cheese broccoli, dixie salad, veggies with dip, and pecan bars are my favorites!)
Grateful to be a part of this process of craft creation & life documentation.
Grateful for all of you! :-)

Here are my November Gratitude projects for Vintage Street Market:

As we celebrate our Thanksgiving holiday, this retro decor piece adds a fun family element to the room.
The paper dolls, each representing one of our family-of-four, can be taken out & played with, then tucked back into the doily pocket.  Thankful for a sweet, thoughtful Dad, who bought me these vintage clothespins while on vacation. :-)  I glued them to an old mason metal/ceramic jar lid, as a base.

One last Gratitude project, a card that expresses Daily Thanks for someone special:

I'm sure each of us can easily think of someone we are thankful for daily.

Happy Thanksgiving!
