Happy Thanksgiving 2015!

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!


For each new morning with its light, 
For rest and shelter of the night, For health and food, 
For love and friends, For everything Thy goodness sends.

Christmas Village

Smiling Sally's - Blue Monday Meme

Well I have a little bit of Thanksgiving and a little bit of
Thanksgiving to share with you all today.
Since I am having my very large family over
on Christmas Day I have decided to start decorating a little
bit each day. One problem with that is I have a lot of
boxes out right now.
Good news is I am just having my immediate family
for Thanksgiving this year and they don't mind a few boxes here 
and there.
My Grand daughter Lily loves the Precious Moments
Christmas Village. But I keep finidng "Frozen" characters
in the Village..hahaha. That is o.k. she is just enjoying herself.
Now I just have to keep the cats off of it!

Well we were out resale shopping againa and
I saw a perfectly pretty blue tablescape so I had to snap
a picture.

You can find a few touches of Blue in these items too!

And here is my Grand daughter Lily. She was Elsa for Halloween.
Doesn't she look excited and look at at all that sugar...I mean candy!

2015 Ornament Exchange

A few months ago I stumbled on Erlene's blog "My Pinterventures "and read
that she was doing a fun ornament exchange so I signed up.
I want to thank her for being so sweet and patient and putting this all together for us.
Erlene linked us up with partners and you could either make
an ornament or buy one. Well since I am not the
crafty type, other than maybe stamping a card here and there 
I decided to buy one. Sorry, I much prefer shopping!
My husband and I were out this weekend shopping and
I asked him if we could stop by the new "At Home" store
that opened in our area. Have you ever been to one?
They are amazing. I could spend hours there.
But..I was with my husband so that was a  no go..
I wanted to pick up an ornament for my new friend 

She told me she likes simple ornaments and not a lot of glam.
She has a great blog, were she talks about weight loss, her family and
does product reviews. She also has an adorable little one.

Here was what the "At Home" store looked like. 
They are definitely ready for the Holidays!

A pink tree...I kind of love it.

So I got her a little bird because I thought it was cute and simple.
I hope she likes it.  I stamoed the card myself and picked up
the little house to pack it in and the initial ornament at Michaels.
Another one of my favorite stores.  I really wanted to find her
an ornament with the knitting theme or with a horse since she told me
she likes both but I couldn't find anything like that. But I may still
find one before Christmas.

Now be sure to visit the other ladies that are blogging about
the  ornaments they chose today.
