Happy Thanksgiving!


Happy Thanksgiving!


Happy Thanksgiving Peeps! I don’t even know how many people read blogs anymore, but I now that there are a few of you out there…so to you and all whom you love, a Very Happy Thanksgiving. I love this holiday very much because it is so UN-commercialized. just taking time to be thankful and enjoy a day reveling in that. Should be every day…It is a good reminder of that.


And being an “American” holiday, I like to remember the Pilgrims and their quest for freedom to worship God in peace, without persecution. There are a lot of people of religious AND non-religious nature persecuting others because they are different. I think our current society actually is not very friendly to Christians in general currently, and there are many sides to all of the issues out there.  But I am very thankful that for the moment at least we are still free to worship and seek God without too much trouble in this country.  And see,  I am one who thinks that it is actually more important to seek God than what I want or think should be done….that is not normal…most people are very concerned about their rights to do this or do that because of their “freedom” …. I don’t consider myself free, I have been bought and paid for by God,  so, no, I really don’t have the right to do whatever I want. …….  I know,  it’s weird, but I have a great peace about it…….I have many “issues” to be sure (we ALL do!) but I live in  a very blessed country, and I am thankful to God for that.


As to my “turkey day” paraphernalia above, I have been collecting Thanksgiving day stuff for many, many years and of all my decorating “stuff” I think I love this group the most.  I particularly love the vintage ceramic turkeys. I don’t have many vintage ones, but they are my absolute favorite. They remind me of days when life was simpler.  I look very fondly back on the eras of the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s…..(although, I am very thankful for Modern Medicine and I only remember the 70’s and a bit of the 60’s….I wasn’t even born in the 50’s!)

So a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving to each and every one of you!

Keep Happy, Keep Sewing, and Keep Being Thankful!

    Happy Thanksgiving. I love reading all my blogs. I am not a blogger just a lover of quilt making and by reading the blogs I like to see the ideas out there. Plus they talk about all the new fabric lines that I don’t get in my area. So keep on blogging.

    Thank you so much for writing this post. It seems like people don’t want to take a stand on their beliefs anymore. I totally agree with what you are saying. We are very blessed in our country so today should be a day of remembering and giving thanks for all we have.
    I hope you and your family had a very Happy Thanksgiving. (your decorations are beautiful)
