Gobble, gobble...

Happy Thanksgiving! We will be spending the day with some dear friends. When told about our plans for the day, Annie's first words were, "What about the leftovers?". The kid is always thinking!

Hoping you will be spending the day with those you care about the most, eating lots of your favorites, and simply enjoying the day.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I experienced Paris as a twenty one year old college student. I was forever touched by her beauty. 
My daughter sees the chaos on the news and asks, "What happened now, Mommy?".
The world has gone mad.

Pray...without ceasing...for peace.

November Kitchen Window

Again...my kitchen window for November is full of pumpkins, bittersweet and Shooner Redware. I just can't help myself.

I've added a couple of new pieces to my collection...a tiny pitcher with dots...and a pretty little pitcher.


We have been enjoying the new look of our mantle. 

I need to put my hooking chair to use...right after I dust that little side table!

Hope you all are enjoying this wonderful time of year. I've finished my Christmas sewing for my friend's shop in Dade City. I did a lot of wool applique...hence, the wool dust that coats the furniture in my sun room.  

If you happen to be in Central Florida on Saturday, stop by Antiques on the Main Street...it's the best little shop in town!

Enjoy the day,

Atlantic Beach

Last week we spent several days in Atlantic Beach, a place we had never been. It is on the coast up by Jacksonville.  

Every evening, while Mr.MW and Annie enjoyed the pool, I walked the beach...for miles.

I gathered shells and feathers to add to our collections. 

I observed the efforts of the day's beach goers. 

I added a few inches to a simple scarf I am knitting for the daughter of a friend.

I snapped a few photos and...

enjoyed the sunset.

It was a slow, quiet few days. The weather was perfect. 

The company...the best...and...

the hallway had polka dots!

Enjoy the day,

Don't be a turkey...

Here he is...my favorite fowl. This beautiful fraktur style watercolor was painted by Lori Brechlin and I am so happy he lives here with us.

Don't be a turkey...remember to vote for Lori and Peter over at Martha Stewart's American Made Contest. 


Vote everyday...six times!

Let's all help this talented and deserving couple achieve the next step in their dream of growing their self made business. Keep those votes coming!

Enjoy the day,
