Thanksgiving Traditions

Happy Sunday.

I’m back with the latest installment of the Thanksgiving Traditions party
that I was invited to host along with six lovely bloggers.

I’ll be hosting the party next week,
but I wanted to do a little round-up of the past two weeks!

We certainly have a lot to be thankful for this year.
It is quite cold here in NY and I’m thinking of those who are still without power after Sandy.
Many areas have had electricity restored, but are still without heat.

So, I’m thankful as I sit here cozy with a cup of coffee and a warm blanket,
hoping that blankets are enough to keep others warm too.

We take so many little things for granted sometimes.

With a nor’easter in the forecast mid-week, it’s going to get even colder.
Prayers for strength and warmth, please.

Box up those unused blankets and drop them off at your local Red Cross if you can
CLICK HERE to go the American Red Cross site where you can give a monetary donation for blankets,
which are listed as an urgent need.

$15 will purchase 3 blankets.

{thank you}

On to the round-up…

Sisters, Heather & Vanessa of At The Picket Fence are two awesome bloggers that I’ve come to meet recently.

They hosted the Thanksgiving Traditions party two weeks ago and shared several cool Thanksgiving table ideas,
a Pumpkin Pie Latte recipe, and their traditions.

Loved this creative idea for little ones…

…and this Corn Husk Flower Napkin Ring Tutorial.

Vanessa shared some other tutorials in her Thanksgiving post too, so be sure to hop over for a visit!

This week, Cheri of It’s So Very Cheri is hosting the party.

She shared her How to Lose Weight Over Thanksgiving post, a Fall banner, and her Cheesecloth Pumpkins.

I apologize for the tiny photo, it’s the biggest I could grab from her site.
The photos are much larger at her place!

You can link up your own Fall and Thanksgiving projects, traditions, and recipes at Cheri’s.

If you don’t have anything to share, hop over for some tablescape, craft, recipe, etc. inspiration.

I love these Pumpkin Pie Tortilla Rolls made by Sweet Little Bluebird

…and Anne’s (Learning Table) Thanksgiving for the Birds.

I have a bunch of ruffled totes to finish up for the girls at The Urban Farmhouse Market this week,
so I’ll happily be in front of my sewing machine for the next few days.

I’ll be back on Wednesday to host the party.

Have a lovely week,


  1. so happy you are safe and sound and sending light and healing to those not so lucky!

    hope you’ll stop by when you have a moment.

    smiles to you.
