~ ThanksGiving, Giving Thanks Monday

If you've known me a long time, and some of you really have, you will have seen this picture before. That's because I haven't stopped long enough yet to even think about a little decorating for Thanksgiving. This may be the same items I put there anyway. It's my favorite pumpkin and I love decorating with it this time of year.

But my mind has been filled with Giving Thanks. I spent all of the weekend trying to be with both Sweet Hubby and Sweetie Girl, and they had different interests. There was necessary shopping trips, watching movies, eating yummy food and a lot of my favorite things. As a special treat, Sweetie Girl took me to the Festival of Trees. It was an extension of my "birthday week." You do know that you should celebrate it for at least a week! She whines a little about the festival being boring or the same ol' thing, but she knows how much I love going. I really think she loves it, too. I've been taking her there since she was so little that her daddy had to pick her up to see all the gingerbread houses. Now at 5' 8" I guess she could pick me up if I needed it. As usual it was so beautiful, and it really helps get me the Holiday mood. This year it has been cooler though which also helps a lot.

I'll share some pictures after I get them downloaded from the camera. Hopefully some came out because I haven't even looked.

It looks like the opening of the Lollishops site is going to be pretty close to the projected time of Nov 28th. I'll keep you posted. Everyone is working very hard on it to make it happen.

Happy Monday, Have a Wonderful Day!

~ Chandelier Silhouette Art & Happy Friday!

It's probably time to go spend a moment or two dancing the dust bunnies, but first I wanted to say Happy Friday! I'm ready for the weekend, how about you? Seems to have been such a busy week. Both Sweet Hubby and the Sweetie Girl have said more than once... is it Friday yet? during the week. I'll spoil them some on the weekend. Although I have cooked more this week than usual. And it was chocolate chip cookie time. Love those days when it is finally cool enough to feel like cooking.

This is what I've been busy with during the week. I love how they are turning out. It will be a really nice series, so they can be featured alone or added to to over time.
(Thank You dear Suzie Q who has already found them!) They are starting now to be added to the shop, come by and look around as I try to get ready for the Holidays.

Happy Friday! Hope your Weekend is a Wonderful one!
See ya' soon!

~ It's a Beautiful Day!

Thank you to everyone who came by to spend a little time here for Halloween and for letting me and a few thousand others visit your sites for the holiday. It was fun!
I remember what a big deal it was not only when I was a kid but when Sweet Daughter was little too. Not as many cute kidlets at my house as then. BUT...
boy did they come out over at Sweet Daughter's new house! Tons of them. She ran out of candy.

I'm working on some Christmas cards and putting them in the shop. I try not to think "Christmas" until after Thanksgiving usually. But I learned last year that you have to start much earlier with being online.

It's a beautiful day, not just in my backyard, but in the world. A day of hope, at long last. The sign reading "white only" has come off the big white house.  To all the millions and millions of people who stood in line, or mailed their precious ballot in, you are amazing. Thank you, no matter who you favored.
