Hello Bloggers! It's only 2 days away from Thanksgiving here in the US. Yesterdays mail brought me a surprise package. This beautiful PINK pincushion from Vickie (her blog is "A Stitcher's Story" can be found here). Vickie makes these adorable bottle cap pincushions and made this "Just for Me".
Thank you Thank you Vickie - I love it:) Isn't her stitched Roses gorgeous?
Vickie you are so talented and a pro at making these. I tried my best to capture the beauty of the colors and stitches. I've seen Vickie's other pincushions she's made and let me tell you it is so much prettier in person than the pictures. But I tried to take good photos for you.
My beautiful card that came with my new treasure. Love you Vickie:)
Have you been to Shabby Art Boutique's blog? The artist is Kerryanne and she is in Australia. I discovered her blog last year. I made this book as my Holiday Planner for 2011. I used some scrapbook papers and trims. Kerryanne offers a Free PDF of all the pages for the planner. And not only did she have this for 2011 - She now has Simply Christmas planner pages for 2012.
This years pages that Kerryanne is offering are in color and themed "Victorian".
Today was grocery shopping for the big dinner on Thursday. OH MY! The parking lot at the grocery store was full. I mean EVERY parking spot was taken - packed. Of course I got a front spot of the store:) And you know I had a blast. Even with all the people - it was fun. Everyone was in a great mood (except for some husbands that got dragged along). This Thanksgiving, well I really don't know what to expect...our 1st big holiday without my mom. But I am going to make this a great day, dinner and fun for all. I truly am Grateful and Thankful for sooooo much love. That's what means the most to me is the "LOVE".
God Bless you and enjoy your time with family and friends.
With Much Love and Appreciation - Annette
p.s. I forgot to mention I'm now stitching on Gingerbread House #2 - about 3/4ths of the way done:)
