TThis past weekend I spent time up in the mountains of Midway with five of my dear friends.
Susan’s SIL has a cabin up there. She so graciously let’s us girls go there once or twice a year.
We use to always scrapbook. Now days we stitch and sew.
We eat like queens and stay up till the wee morning hours, We watch movies, stuff our faces with way too many goodies, and laugh till our sides ache!
The 2nd morning we awoke to a dusting of snow.
These pictures are of the valley below.
This valley is postcard worthy don’t you think?
Hubby had went on his final fly fishing adventure for the season.
When we returned home, our house was very chilly.
It took hubby a while to figure out what was going on with our furnace.
That’s when I realized how thankful I am for “Hearth and Home’!
I love going on get aways. But I am always so thankful to be home. Nestled on my own sofa and sleeping in my own bed with hubby by my side.
All we had to do was flip a switch on our fireplace and we had instant heat.
Often we forget how blessed we are!
My fireplace and mantle are two of my favorite things to decorate.
When I think of Thanksgiving, I think of a ‘Bountiful Harvest’. . .
I recently got this glass pumpkin as a club gift. I love the colors and the twisty vine.
Pilgrims crossing on the ‘Mayflower’ . . .
Turkeys and such.
Causing us to have, ‘thankful hearts’
Oh but let’s not forget the Indians. . .
Look at this little guy I bought at a shop in Midway. He’s called, “Ready for 2nds”.
Who could resist a face like that?
I’m so thankful for that first thanksgiving!
Now to announce the winner of the guessing game. There were six people who guessed correctly. I will tell you that Kimberly had a hard time choosing between apron #1 and #2. In the end she chose #2. Kris, one of my good blogging friends is the winner. I have felt a connection with Kris from the very beginning. she is a very talented and sweet lady. Hop over and visit her. Kris at Simplify. Then on Weds. go visit Kimberly. Kimberly at Camp and Cottage Living. She will be blogging about her apron.
