Happy Thanksgiving!

This little table in my dining room sums up what I am thankful for today.  A family photo, my daughters' drawing of our family, and a hand painted dish with all of our names on it. 

(Please notice that I am the one fully accessorized and my mouth is wide open...hmmm?)

A gift from our beloved Aunt Kitty, I keep the note that came with it taped to the back of the dish. (I will forever remember Aunt Kitty in her chic clothes, big sunglasses, and sneaking smokes like no one would notice...when she was in her 80's!)

I plan to be in a pumpkin pie coma by 6pm. So...

  1. The note from Aunt Kitty made me cry a little. My pumpkin pie coma will be coming a little bit later, maybe 7ish, but it's coming. Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Hello? Hello? Are you out of the pumpkin pie coma yet? ;-) What a sweet post! I agree with Sandra...the note from Aunt Kitty was so touching, and it made me tear up. I can only imagine her sitting there making that plate with every bit of creative spirit she possessed. It is obvious she had a lot of love for you and your family. SO sweet, and such a wonderful thing to be thankful for. I hope you and your family enjoyed the Thanksgiving holiday.

  3. What a treasure you have! Love the plate and the fact that you keep the note with it.

  4. What a wonderful treasure! She sounds like a fabulous lady. Love the jewelry you are sporting in that drawing.
