Happy Thanksgiving & New Art Pieces...


Wishing all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving~
Hope your weekend is filled with laughter,
love, fond memories and yummy food!
The turkey chases the hunters!
As a kid I would wash the turkey for mom...
Stand it up in the sink and have it share where it lived...
The poor, bare bird would talk about the
roads around our house that it had roamed,
where the skunks live and other local facts!
Then I would sing and have it dance into the roaster.
I always played with my food...
Drew roads in my mountain of mashed potatoes.
Set up walls of squash and ham squares...
Beet juice makes great ink lines on Melamine plates.
It all was cold by the time it made it to my mouth
but it tasted better with a little sprucing up!
A few photos to share of new Etsy listings!
I have several large linens that I have made into
small tree skirts or table dresses~

Feathered friends...


Critters and teddy loves...

Meadow art!
Many of you have had the "white stuff"
I have mixed feelings this year...
The beauty and fun of snow has been delayed.
We're enjoying a warm, extended fall!
Nice walks, sunshine & winds to clear the leaves!
It's nice that our furnace isn't running continually...
our Christmas tree will last longer~
We all load into the truck and drive to our favorite
evergreen farm this weekend...
The kids want to bring home the little tree,
so it isn't all alone... or the half brown one because
they know that nobody else will choose it...
I choose the 12' tall ones that will take up
our entire livingroom...
Hubby is a saint.
He walks for hours... stands next to them as a
6' measuring stick explaining why we can't
fit "the perfect one" with a smile~
Wishing you relaxation and fun~

Happy Thanksgiving, Michelle. It's obvious from your post, that you were a child gifted with a vivid imagination. It has served you well in your art. I hope you and your family enjoy your weekend, making all new memories together.

Your post reminded me that my brothers and I used to perform "operations" on our chocolate pudding! Because of the skin on top, it was perfect.
Your new linens are gorgeous!

Love and hugs to you Michelle. Praying that your Thanksgiving is full of joy and that the tree hunt is...well...as it should be!!! :o) Your experience sounds much like ours! There is a country tree farm we go to each year, and my hubby bears with us all and we usually end up bringing home the big one, too!! HA!! We'll be driving up to Nashville soon to help our oldest and her family move back to Florida! YIPPEE!! HUGE answered prayer!! And did I tell you she is pregnant with our second grandy??!! So wonderful!

Blessings to you, sweetie,
You are close in thought and prayer!
LOVE my snowmen notepads!! Keeping one and two will be gifts!

Love ya,
Becky

I just adore all of your little critters. I have been here before but I do not always comment. I am working on a fabric book (a new thing for me) and I was wondering what is the best pen to write on fabric? If anyone would know it would be you. Thanks for any help you can offer. BE BLESSED :-)
