Our Thanksgiving was memorable and heartwarming.

Now it's time to focus on the next big holiday, the wondrous celebration of Christmas. 

December decorating has begun.

Extra Touches

I made a quick visit to my booth this morning to pop in some little trees here and there. I liked the effect! Here at home I am resisting Christmas decorating, but plenty of ideas are scurrying around in my head.

Sunshine Before the Rain

I walked over to the art room to take a photo of my latest flower painting and received a nice surprise. The sunlight striking the flower painting was an unexpected pleasant sight.

This afternoon has been windy, rainy, and stormy. I spent some time working on tags. Two recent sets: Anniversary and Christmas

My Weakness

I'm always on the lookout for them. Yesterday I was rewarded by spotting three at very cheap prices. I love the charm of these vintage ornaments. 

The variety of colors and designs is part of the charm. 

I do look forward to bringing out ornaments in December.
What a delightful weakness!

It's That Time Again

Time for Shoeboxes! I enjoy gathering supplies and small toys for this ministry every November. 

By the time all the items are packed in the box, it is stuffed and must be well taped. 

Operation Christmas Child is a wonderful way to spread joy, hope, and love.

My recent days have been more inside than out. I have been cleaning out my Christmas storage closet, trying to decide what decorations to use this year.
Of course, I wait until after Thanksgiving to begin that decorating. So glad the sun is bright today. My mood is better on a clear sunshiny day. 

Have a great day!

One Fast Month to Another

This year my Halloween enthusiasm was lacking. I didn't even buy a pumpkin to carve.

Leaves are starting to change colors.

Gathered leaves from the yard in case I want to frame one or two against a background paper.

November has arrived much to my disbelief. How can a year zoom by so fast?

Also to my disbelief I have a son who is thirty-nine today.

Happy Birthday, Ryan!
Thanks for all the wonderful memories.
Love you always.
