Children Once Again

" Winter came down

to our home one night


Quietly pirouetting in

on silvery-toed slippers of snow,

And we,

we were children once again. "

    Thanksgiving Tablescape

    I wanted to make sure and post

    a few photos of this years Thanksgiving tablescape.

    I found a few moments in between the baking,

    the roasting,

    and the simmering to capture the beauty of our holiday table.

    Adorned with sparkling pumpkins,

    autumn leaves and berries,

    and of course, cranberry glass.

    I am joining Feathered Nest Friday:

    Show and Tell Friday:

    and Tablescape Thursday:

    I hope you are enjoying your holiday and your loved ones.

    Happy Thanksgiving 2011

    We Thank Thee

    For flowers that bloom about our feet;

    For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;

    For song of bird, and hum of bee;

    For all things fair we hear or see,


    For blue of stream and blue of sky;

    For pleasant shade of branches high;

    For fragrant air and cooling breeze;

    For beauty of the blooming trees,

    For this new morning with its light,

    For rest and shelter of the night,

    For health and food, for love and friends,

    For everything Thy goodness sends,

    Father in heaven, we thank Thee.

           ~  Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Thanksgiving Prep

    Today I will pick up our fresh Turkey.

    And make room for it somehow in our fridge.

    I might decide to make the fresh cranberry sauce today as well.

    And whatever else I can get myself to do before hand to make things easier tomorrow.

    I have the wine, ingredients to make the fresh pumpkin pie, and of course the organic whipped cream.

    So much to be thankful for.

    Thanksgiving Decor 2011

    The weather here is perfect.

    All weekend our windows and doors were wide open to the fresh autumn air.

    Listening to the waterfall from the backyard.

    It always makes the house so fresh with the autumn breeze blowing through the  sheer curtains making them dance in the sunlight. 

    These are some sneak peaks of my Thanksgiving decorations.

    Even here in the desert, you will find pumkins and acorns adorning my house.

    Snowglobe Angel

    These days, my santos cage doll is ready for Thanksgiving.

    I added some new angel wings,

    And some beautiful rhinestones.

    I have even captured her in a snowglobe for you.

    I am joining Cindy's " Show and Tell Friday ":


    Wishing you a warm and wonderful Thanksgiving.

    " Withered leaves are dancing,

       With the breezes prancing.

    Harvest mows are smiling

    With their stores beguiling.

    Zephyrs swift are chafing

    With the brooklets laughing.

    Autumn's stars are beaming

    Through the crisp night gleaming.

    Birds are southward winging

    Full of joyous singing.

    Hill, and vale, and river.

    In the sunlight quiver.

    Thrilling with thanksgiving

    O'er the joy of living. "

       - J. K. Bangs, (Rapture) 1913

    Shape of a Heart

    As a collector of vintage catholic relics,

    I find myself learning so much about the past.

    Although these are not vintage, I adore ex-votos.

    I bought mine here sometime last year.

    They are given to Saints as a fulfillment of a vow (hence the Latin term, short for ex voto suscepto, "from the vow made") or in gratitude or devotion.

    Often the ex-voto is in the shape of a heart,

    To show or represent the giver's heartfelt thanks.
