yesterday was our Thanksgiving.
without going into detail, it was amazing.
Mr D and i cooked enough to send each parting family with a
shopping bag filled with left overs.
Holland Grace helped me load the bags.
we played counting games as we packed.
she is so polite and gracious. her mommy and daddy have
done such a lovely job teaching her social graces.
this morning i tossed the mini white pumpkins into
the yard waste bin.
Good Bye, Autumn 2013!
it's time to set the stage for WINTERPLAY!
the table was cleared for only a moment
before i filled it with the next project.
we have been looking at sofa's for two years. we finally
made a decision. Mr D could not grasp my slip covered white
vision, so we compromised.
you all know how i love the greige tones of natural linen.
i have always been intrigued with the intricate, subtle
herringbone jacquard found in French natural textiles.
i seek the detail, and
have collected a few pieces over the years.
going neutral will allow me to change the accents and
accessories with the seasons.
|Chrislyn gifted me this adorable pillow cover that she found at H & M. |
she reads me like a book, doesn't she?
i'll start decking all of the house except the living room.
installation of carpet and delivery of furniture
should be complete before the family
traditional tree cutting on the 14th!
before i go, i wish to thank God for putting me in the virtual
company of such lovelies as you. i don't talk about
faith on my blog much, but perhaps i should.
since most of us fly in similar patterns, you likely know
about this weekend's miracle. if not, you may visit Diana's
post here. i know when i speak about my blogs friends, i
sometimes get a look or reaction like i'm a kid with
"aren't you worried that these people could
"my blog friends are extra ordinary,
brilliant and oh so caring, just like you"
bloggers blessed are we, a life saved!
