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.

  3. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal. I must say you’ve done a great job with this. Additionally, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Firefox. Outstanding Blog!

  4. Wow, great blog layout! How long have you been blogging?
    Made blogging easy. The content as well as the overall look of the site is great!일본야동

  6. Fantastic blog! I'm so happy you're back! I continue to enjoy your books, and I appreciate the blog! Thanks.
