I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend! Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, and we had a wonderful celebration here at home. Family and good friends joined us for a happy feast. Of course once again I was so engrossed in food preparation (and then eating), that I failed to take any pictures. Sigh... But-- I can show you my gravy boat!

Robin's (now chipped) gravy boat
A couple of weeks ago, I went to a Mom's Night Out with some preschool mamas at a paint-your-own ceramics place. And for the first time ever, I actually had a gravy boat in which to put my gravy. Huzzah!!! Of course I managed to fumble and chip it just a few minutes before filling it with gravy. Doh! But, it is glue-able and now it just fits right in with the rest of my chipped dinnerware. :P

I can also show you our fabulous centerpiece, courtesy of Big Bear:

gobble, gobble
He made it at preschool. I guess everyone else used pinecones for a base. But he wasn't into those. So he made his with playdough and pumpkinseeds. It is definitely a festive conversation starter!

I truly have much to be thankful for in my life, including my wonderful and amazing family, good friends, the abundant love in our lives, as well as all of the material stuff too (fabric and otherwise). Having a time of year like this, with the idea of thankfulness at the forefront, is a wonderful reminder for me to be grateful for all the good in my life. I just love this season of thanks and giving. And feasting. Gotta love the feasting!


  1. lovely gravy bowl! You did a great job on that--I'm envious!

    I love the center piece!! I bet he was so proud to have it on the table!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving! I love the gravy boat!

  3. Pretty gravy boat! Do your dishes have a similar pattern? I hope you had a wonderful day!

  4. I am always happy when something gets the first chip, dent or scratch that way I never have to worry about it again :) I love the creativity he showed in his centerpiece.

  5. Glad to hear you had a great Thanksgiving.
    I love the way you painted your gravy bowl. Cool design.
    And the turkey is perfect. It is good the teacher let him use his imagination.
