|The view out my bedroom window. I live in a glorious tree house!|
It is a beautiful fall day here. The perfect day for a Thanksgiving celebration!
What am I most thankful for? Besides my family and my friends, I would have to say that I am most thankful for the opportunity to pursue a creative life. It has made me a very content person. And really, being content is what it's all about, isn't it?
So, the turkey is in the oven
|2 more hours till golden time...|
The pies have been made
|Apple. Isn't my bluebird sweet? |
And that is a little heart in front of him
|Pumpkin pie, completely from scratch|
I confess I have used canned pumpkins in the past..
Those are spaniels on top - don't ask why!
I have added the remnants of the garden to my store bought tulips
|can there ever be too many flowers?|
Not in Wendy's world...
And the cook is decked out in her new Brynn Walker outfit and new Anne et Valentin glasses.
|Byrnn Walker - made in the USA! Anne et Valentin - made in France. |
How multicultural of me!
|last year's kikis work very well...|
|ruching details on the dress|
Mostly I will wear this with boots...
I am ever reminded of how fortunate I am to live in a country that is generally safe, to live in a province that is friendly and beautiful and to have food on the table and clothes on my back.
We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.~Thornton Wilder
Have a lovely Monday all, and happy thanksgiving to my Canadian friends!
