Thanksgiving Wrap-up

I know you are all so “over” Thanksgiving and in the middle of Christmas shopping and prep.  But in an attempt to feed my denial that Christmas is less than a month away and that I am turning another year older this week, I’m going to relive our fun Thanksgiving celebration and pretend it isn’t […]

Fall Flowers for Thanksgiving

The night before the fairy party, we had a family birthday dinner for my sister-in-law.  Of course I was up to my eyeballs in pixie dust and other messes, so I was thrilled to have been given the opportunity to get a fresh flower delivery straight to my home that day.  The Sunflower Guy offered to […]

Thanksgiving Again–Gratitude

I really like Thanksgiving!  It’s all about family food, and the opportunity to set a beautiful table! They are having a Thanksgiving Challenge over at the CSI Project this week, and I initially thought I would do a quick post to give you a run down of some of my favorite past Thanksgiving projects as […]

HappyThanksgiving! Last Minute Tips, and Gratitude Giveaway #3

So are you stressing yet? I was going to be hosting this year, but I was given a reprieve from my hosting duties, since I haven’t recovered from my first trimester yet (even though I am well into my 2nd one, *sigh*). Even so, I still have some experiments to conduct on a 21 lb. […]

Comfort and Joy—A Seasonal Meal

I’ve been wanting to share this “comfort-food”-themed Gourmet Group meal with you, since I had the pleasure of eating it, a year ago. Unfortunately, I didn’t get photos right away, and then the season had kind of passed. I’m sharing it with you now, because some of the ideas, might work well on your Thanksgiving […]

Gratitude Giveaways–Thanksgiving Week

I still have some Thanksgiving ideas to share, but this week, as we remember what and who we are grateful for, I’d like to say,”thank you” to you my loyal readers (and even those who are just stumbling upon my blog for the first time), with a few fun giveaways that might help you get […]

Edible Placecard Holders for a Fun Thanksgiving

This idea has made it’s appearance in many Thanksgiving meals I’ve been involved in over the years. If you look closely, you can see my mini cornucopias in this post, and in this post. The cornucopias are made by “glueing” Runts candies into Bugles snacks, using Marshmallow creme as your glue. The trick is using […]

Gratitude Tree 2009

We’ve been a little slow getting our Gratitude Tree going this year. But it is never too late to remember to be grateful, right? So this is what we have this year. It is a little different than last year, as many of you will recall… I loved how our tree turned out last year, […]
