Thankful {things I love} Thursday ...

 The snow has been falling, then melting and falling again ...
Our garden has been filled with birds and squirrels and Beau Bunny who makes daily visits ♥
The (acrobatic)  squirrels have managed to get to all the feeders and suet baskets and made quite a mess ... hubby has put the wheel barrow underneath one of the feeding stations and it's helped a bit ... now the squirrels can sit comfortably while eating all the fallen seed :-) 
I have an article and stitchery project in the newest Sew Somerset Winter 2015 issue.
"Sharing & Wearing my HeART" is a little fabric business card holder created using my Peaceful Thoughts print.
I find so many discarded books at Church rummage sales and garage sales.  They often have pages torn and missing and  scribbles inside, perfect for putting to one side to use in mixed media art.  After painting this Angel print, I went through a few books looking for the perfect words to add & created a little Thankful for quote ♥
 
THANKFUL FOR ...
love and laughter
kindness
for joys of morning, night and noon,
twilight, music
the ordinary
daily things I do each day
for these gifts
I find
carry us along
navigating
a kindred life
from day to day
of joy.
 
Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends celebrating today xo

Hello Deb... love hearing about all of your little visitors... putting a wheel barrow underneath the feeders is such a good idea!... I would not want the neighbors cat to have a place to "lie in wait" though... "Cuddles" is adorable, and I love for her to visit, but not with birdies on her mind!... congratulations on your feature!... that angel card holder is so pretty and I love your quote... xoxo...

You should see all the sweet little books and things that come through our library as donations. Some are full of great old pages and illustrations! Some from long, long ago! We can't keep everything we find in that ol' donation box!
I know you would love it all. :)
What a complete honor to have a write up (again!) in a mag. Your work and talent is inspiring to no end.
Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving, Deb.
