Thankful {things I love} Thursday ...

setting the table
with freshly washed
air dried
 and pressed
linen napkins
a new box of grey chalk ♥
painting little wooden tags
my old silver tray/chalk board
seeing my hexagon knitted quilt increase in size
adding some little whimsy
{of course}
will embroider some love notes on the hearts
when it is all together ... I am almost there!
stored in my vintage suitcase
so handy when I want to knit in different rooms :-)
letting our beautiful Thanksgiving bouquet from our daughter
dry naturally
the view from one of our walks
and found hidden treasures
the next 2 are not the best photos ...
these little sweeties kept me company as I was doing the breakfast dishes as soon as I spotted them out the window I grabbed for the camera
the morning began dark with a misty rain
but now
the sun is shining brightly
hope you are having a lovely Thursday ♥

Monique ~ it is so bright and sunny now ...a complete flip from this morning. Lots of fallen leaves here too ♥ the hexagon quilt has been lots of fun to knit and use up my odds and ends of wool. I've added a few little fun hexagons throughout ... an acorn, some hearts (that I will embroider love notes on) a tree, some leaves. thank you for your kind note ~ hope you are having a lovely day xo

It's turned out to be a lovely day! Wouldn't have thought that this morning! :) So much to love about this post ... your hexagon quilt, artwork, autumn colours ... but I think my favourite is your chalkboard tray!

Have a lovely day, Deb! xo

that little bird looks so cute on your watering can, and your list of things your thankful for inspire me to think of my own list. This time of year always makes me extra grateful, i love the fall :)

Jeanne said...

So many beautiful blessings.
I love your postings and photographs Deb.
And all the lovely quotes.
I leave smiling and happy every time.
Love Jeanne

hi Lynda, didn't it turn out gorgeous! hubby spent the afternoon closing the pond once the sun came out :-)
the tray was made years ago. I had made a few as Christmas presents using "proper" chalkboard paint, and wanting one for my kitchen, made mine with ordinary black acrylic paint ...it has stood up beautifully all these years (and I am forever changing the chalk message) ♥

Deb said...

happy October Heather ~ thank you for your lovely visit & note ♥

hi jenni ~ it wasn't the best photo, taken in a hurry through the kitchen window, but I thought he looked adorable on the watering can too :-)
like you, I am a lover of fall ♥ have a wonderful weekend enjoying all the blessings of October xo
