I know most of you have moved on to Christmas but I have some
cute Thanksgiving decorations so I will enjoy this season first.
I hooked this very small mat years ago very funky but I still like it.
I got a large lot of these candles for little money at a thrift store a few years ago.
And my poor little Indian's feet are bumpy so he does not stand
very well but I have him tucked in with the others.
My aunt gave me these two probably 35 years ago and out they come each thanksgiving. They are made of paper ribbon.
I worked 6 days in a row (50 hours ) and am beat. I am way to old for those kind of hours but they were short handed. So my one day off Husband and I took a ride an hour north to Littleton NH.
Such a sweet town with a wonderful Main St. Lots of small wonderful stores and we ate lunch at the counter, on the old red stools, of a local diner.
Our White Mountains were just glorious today, well really any day.
This is just as we entered Franconia notch. I feel very lucky to live in the mountains.
After we shopped our way along Main St. We stopped for dessert at the largest candy counter in the world! Chutters! This is just a small portion of it and in the center is all kinds of high end candies such as fudge, nice chocolates etc. We spent the best part of 20.00 and snacked our way home.
This is a sweet fence that was across the front of their local library.
Of course I hit their little local thrift store. These little knives will be put to good use when I give bread with compound butter for Christmas gifts.
This is a bamboo knife. I will use it when I have soft cheese etc.
I also purchased these Santa shot glasses. They are vintage made in Japan each has their original sticker.
It was nice to have a day with nothing to do but enjoy.
I am deep into the pumpkin bread. I am making them for the Thanksgiving baskets that they giveaway at a local food pantry. 4 dozen this year. I am making and freezing right now. they need to be passed in by the 23 of November. I love baking and they like the bread so a win win.
Freezing temps and snow in our future this week we will see how much snow but we will be hugging the wood stove for sure.
Have a wonderful week
