We got our Thanksgiving Card from Miss B. She really put her foot in this one:) So cute.
I went to a church sale bright and early and purchased some items for Christmas. This parish does a great job of making gift baskets that are great for Yankee swaps and gifts that are not a lot of money.
But they also have a trash and treasure room in the basement. I had to rescue this hooked Lamb.
I also purchased this bracelet and earrings. the bracelet has some pieces missing but the earrings can be used to fix it. I love vintage bracelets.
So on the way home I took a drive into our recycling center aka the dump. These two little trucks were in the swap shop. They are in great shape a little cleaning and...
And pretty cute!
I also found this in the swap shop a very large jar with no cover.
I grabbed it and asked husband to make a wooden top. this will be great for flour. Husband made a top but he stained the wood so I will show it later. I gave it a good scrubbing and a bleach soak we are set to go.
I watched old movies and cleaned out drawers and bookcases. Lauren Bacall and Gregory Peck does it get any better than that? Ok maybe Hepburn and Tracy. While cleaning out drawers I found 80.00 in LLBean gift certificates, 50.00 restaurant gift certificates, and 100.00 spar gift certificate that we had forgotten about. I guess I should clean more often!
My dollar basket I got a few weeks ago all decorated up.
I had everything at the house to dress it up and lots of greens in the woods.
This is sunset tonight. I walked by a window and the outside was a weird color so I put a coat on and went out looking for the sunset. Pretty awesome!
And to get the holiday spirit going I put the lights in the windows.
My neighbor has them all year round. While it is very pretty
I love when we start getting the lights up each year it seems like a little holiday prize.
Have a wonderful safe and peaceful Thanksgiving.
