Thanksgiving Dinner For 19!

We are so excited to have a houseful
this Thanksgiving!
Almost all of our children and grandchildren will be here. 
We will have dinner for 19!
We will miss Tiffani, Phil, Mark & Eric
who live in beautiful Colorado!
***
We count our Blessings each day for our family. 
We always setup a long table.
Hubby wants to see everyone's beautiful faces!

He sits at one end, and I at the other.
I love all the green BALL canning jars!
They also make the straws & tops. 
Used all my May Flower Vernon Ware.
My Mother had a few pieces when she was a newly wed.
I found a huge set of this china a few years ago
from a blogger who was selling hers!
That was an exciting day!
I love these sweater pumpkins. 
The table goes all the way into the living room.
These views look into our giant room & kitchen.
I have had this green hen for years and
was so happy to see how well it matches with the jars!
I bought the chandeliers years ago from another blogger
I have been blogging for 7 years in March and still love it to pieces!
Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!

A Beloved Fall Tea Party!

One of my most beloved Tea Party's
 I have ever attended is this sweet FALL gathering. 
This is my friend Karie's beautiful home.
She made you feel special as her guest.
Oh the details!
 The huge menu filled with delights, oh my!
I remember well.
Pumpkin custard with crisp sugar cookies!
I shall always cherish this special day
and so glad I documented it!

Have a wonderful Fall day my friends!

Cowgirl Style Trailer!

I am remembering how cute my trailer was when
 I had it all decked out in COWGIRL!
Even tho it was in pastels, it was cowgirl.
I still have all the decor if I ever want to change back!
Thats what's nice about these tiny trailers,
you can change them out in a jiffy! 
Have a wonderful day!

Made With Love!

Every day when I gather the hens eggs,
I get this little warm fizzy!

I am so grateful for my sweet hens and their gifts they give … 
"made with love"
This is what is written on each dozen eggs I give away,
 and always tied with ribbon!
I love my hens!
Have a blessed day!

Bar Soap!

Home Storage (year supply) can be pretty! 

I took all my boxed soaps off my storage shelf and put them on display! 
I will be adding it to my master bath. 
I use crocheted "soap socks" I make for my shower. 
No more shower gel for me!
I love that I have gone back to using bar soap again.

I have all my supplies to start making my own soap too!
I love the gentleness and smell of them.
I bought the large glass container at Hobby Lobby.
It's rather large and holds a years supply!

Do you use bar soap or make it?

First Time Crocheting Baby Blankets!

This is my very first time crocheting  
baby blankets!

I have crocheted dishcloths for years and
my sister Linda & friend Bonnie said I could use the same
pattern for a baby blanket! 
I bought a BIG crochet hook and some soft baby yarn and went to town!
I am addicted!
I made 2 in 2 days just in a few hours.
They are a great size for a lap quilt too,
so I have only just begun!
It's so fun when you try something new!
These already have names on them and more blankets/names to go!

Have a great day creating!
