You might remember that my younger sister, Margaret, was
home for a visit in late summer.
Just in time for Thanksgiving (Oct.8), a parcel arrived in the
mail from her.
She sent me a sweet tea towel and some cute beverage napkins
along with beautiful cards and a letter.
She is so thoughtful and I miss her terribly.
I decided to change up the vignette on my kitchen counter.
I removed the large tole tray and white hobnail milk glass
cookie jar and used these wood things for a fall theme.
The wooden pig cutting board was my mother-in-law's as was
the jar on the right. The blocks came from her house too.
The little basket with the handle is a New Brunswick handcraft
by Brent Rourke. The rectangular wooden box was a yard sale
find. It says Alberta Springs on it. I'm not sure what came in it but
I have the feeling it was a bottle of something. :)
And, I made pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. ;)
They make a huge batch and freeze well.
Otherwise they'd be all gone. :)
Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage is hosting a new party called
HOME ~ Heart Of My Environment.
Maybe you would like to join in and share something
pertaining to your home from cooking to decorating to
hobbies and everything in between.
Be sure to visit Sandi's blog and see what she's cooked up
for her first post. It looks delicious!
I am busy getting ready for our annual college 'girls'
reunion this weekend which I am co-hosting with my
best friend, Lois.
It's 40 or 41 years since we all first met at Bible school and we
have a great time getting caught up. There will be about 12 or 13
of us coming here for pot luck supper on Friday evening and
half will be staying overnight here and half at Lois' house.
On Saturday morning we'll be going to Lois' for breakfast.
Good food, friends and fellowship.
And a late night I'm sure.
Here is our group last year.
Don't foget to visit the new HOME party.
See you soon.
