Give Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving, dear friends!  May your day be filled to the brim and your cup runneth over.  I hope before we lay our heads down tonight, we realize all our many blessings then bow our heads in true gratefulness!

This old dough trencher filled with pumpkins and gourds makes a great fall centerpiece on the dining table.

A few dried corn stalk husks picked off my dad's fields make a great fall bouquet in a vintage ice cream maker.

"Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind, for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things."  Psalms 107:8-9


  1. Hello Maria! Happy Thanksgiving! Love your pictures! Lori

  2. Beautiful, even though we don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in France, we still stopped and took a few minutes to raise a glass and toast all our dear American friends and also to stop and reflect on all the things we are so thankful for. It's a wonderful holiday, I wish we had it here.


Thank you for stopping by! I love hearing from you and appreciate all of your comments. It's a treat to read each one!
