Welcome Sweet Pink Loving Friends...Be sure and visit Beverly to see the list of wonderful blogs celebrating our love of pink...


Thanksgiving Day was quiet and cozy...just hubby and me. The house smelled delicious with all the cooking...the day was dark, rainy and very chilly, but we didn't mind. It was our day.

Almost ready...

We had decided to eat in mid-afternoon, so we could snack on the left overs in the evening....I got so busy getting the dishes to the table that I forgot to take a picture of our feast! Just take my word....everything turned out as it was supposed to and it was a perfect Thanksgiving! I hope each of you had such a special day, too!

And...a Christmas Stocking just finished today...more pictures at The Ruffled Rose

SOLD
Rachal Ashwell fabric, an embroided Blue Bird and sweet ribbon embroidery...I am just starting to hit my stride making stockings and you will find them at my Etsy Shop, too. New ones almost every day! I am a bit behind because I just had an awful time letting go of summer and couldn't find my Christmas mood!

Have a sweet Saturday!

Your Thanksgiving sounded wonderful...nice...peaceful. Mine has always been huge but this year not so much..
However..there is something to be said for not having all the hub bub..and I was surprised that I really liked it.
Your table is just adorable! I love the white..and for a long time wanted exactly that look but I would have to start from scratch..so..I stick with what I have. What a sweet room! Wish you had remembered to take photo's of your feast! :)

Oh, isn't that bluebird precious?

What is it about California that seems so far away? I haven't posted anything, but I did spend a lot of time tearing up on our trip out here. The fact is that Vermont was so far away from my son, too. And, there just wasn't a future for us there.

We had three Thanksgiving day invitations after being out here only one week. What a difference from Vermont! Of course, it was old friends and family, but wow!!! All this is a future job opportunity for my husband since the one he has is always tenuous and not the best of companies.

After the holidays, I hope to spend some time talking with you since I will be moving on to making items along with getting rid of trims, etc. I'm just a click away even though I'm in CA! (ha, a little poem! :-)

Our Tsgiving much the same as yours, but Friday was our family gathering. I truly enjoy the quiet time of togetherness.

Your table setting is delightfully pink & inviting. Glad you had such a relaxing & enjoyable day

Happy PS ...
Have a beautiful weekend.
TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

Oh Jil,what a pretty dining room you have and I am swooning here over your Rose Chintz china! It does look scrumptious on the table, doesn't it? I'm going to set my Christmas dinner table with it! Don't you think it is one of the prettiest patterns? Love that gorgeous stocking too! Happy Pink Saturday, sweet friend, and I hope your weekend is lovely.

Blessings,
Sandi
