Thanksgiving greetings to all my dear sweet friends in blogland! I wish you a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving! I am really looking forward to the week ahead. I'm off for 9 day. YEAH!!!! I have so many projects planned and a whole pile of new Christmas magazines to read. I also plan on getting out some Christmas decorations. Doing a little painting and wallpaper, finish putting my gardens to bed for the winter and so much more. We have been having some really mild weather for the past few weeks here in WV. We are spoiled for sure.
I've put a few pics here of some of my fall decorations. ENJOY!!! Please feel free to click on the pic to get a larger view.

I have a combined post this week for Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound and Blue Monday hosted by Sally of Smiling Sally. I found all these cute little vintage plastic things at a thrift store. I've got losts of projects planned for them, now to just find the time. Lots of pink and blue here!

Thank you so much for stopping by, it was so nice to visit with you, I wish you a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving!

Blessings, Shirl

Oh Shirl...
Happy Pink Saturday, Blue Monday and Happy Thanksgiving Sweetie. You are the smart one, you rolled them all into one. Way to go.

I love this tea pot with the turkey on it. That is so beautiful. I love the green chair that has the little Holly Hobbie cross-stitched doll on the pillow. That is so cute. I love the wall paper behind that chair also.

Lovin all the pinks and blues too. My you have alot of work ahead of your girl. It's a good thing you have all those days off, if you do everything on this list you are going to need a rest before you go back to work. Thanks for sharing sweetie. Please stop by and say hi. I so love it when you do. Country hugs...Sherry

Hi Shirl,
All your Thanksgiving display areas are just gorgeous. I love how it feels so cozy. I could just settle in and take in the peace that always flows from your home.
Your cross stitch pillows are wonderful.

Great thrift store finds too. I can see some fun creations with those in the future for you.

Just wanted to stop by and wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving.
Love to you, Celestina Marie
