    Thank you for all the joy and beauty you share with us all through the year…One of my favorite things to do is click on a link to your blog when I get a notice of a new one.

    Wishing you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving to you also, Mary…Ours will be a quiet one but am trying several new recipes instead of going traditional…

    To my pumpkin streusel pie, I added your touch of leaves. When I cut the pie they all fell off. I’ve decided I don’t do pretty well!

    Hi Mary! Happy Day After Thanksgiving!! I’m still basking in the afterglow of a blessed day! Everything turned out really great and my Wallace Hostess Serving Set made it extra special. I was thrilled to be able to serve my guests using it. I even took it to the office on Wednesday to show the girls and all were so impressed. On Saturday we’ll be at the church with a group of others to clean and to put up Christmas decorations. I’ll be taking the Nutter Butter Turkey Cupcakes! They are just too cute! Thanks again for all the joy and inspiration you give to us all us. We count you as one of our blessings! Trusting you had a lovely day with your family and the sweet girls!
