.........A few of the things that I am thankful for recently, and thought they might add a touch of
         beauty and inspiration for you today.

Recently, I was privileged to sit at my sister's kitchen table, and enjoy visiting and catching
up with a group of women from my past.  All of our children had attended the same school,
and we spent many hours working together on school events and fund raisers.
Now our children have graduated and moved on and we rarely get to spend time
together.  What a privilege it was for me to sit with these gifted women.

I want to show you the table scape that my sister created, because I want you to see, what
she did with$1.00 dinner plates that she purchased from the Dollar Tree.  The four green
glass jars were a gift from a friend, and the flowers were from the grocery store.  Isn't it
fun to see what one can do with simple finds like she had.  The favors were cupcake
holders filled with salt water taffy from the beach store.

The simple banners over the candy, were another fun idea.

My sister...the creative and gracious hostess of the luncheon.

Blessings are found in friendships, new friends and friends who have been through past
journeys in our lives.  Each and every one continues to add special dimensions to my life.

Fresh, green, tender lettuce that was dropped off at my front door, from the abundance of
my neighbor's garden.  What a treat!

The fun, red and white polka dot lids that I found at the Dollar General Store, to put on my glass
jelly jars.  What a colorful way to add a touch of pizazz to each jar of strawberry and peach jelly
that I made.  There are often great treasures to be found at the local dollar stores.

One of the favorite foods of every one of our grandchildren.  Thank you GoGurt, for the
healthy, yummy tasting packs of yogurt that you made for children, and for including
all the goodness in each pack.

And last of all today, I am thankful for the smiles that this little girl brings
into my life.  She asked if she could sit on the sofa and read like her paw pa and
I do each morning?  I was delighted.  But, she said," that first she needs her glasses
like each of us wear to read." 
They observe and copy us so quickly.  What an important fact to remember as
we go through each day.
Thank you for stopping by, for this little something.  And, thank you for sharing
so many of your favorite happenings and finds.  I learn so much from all of you.

Very cute table scape!

Very true those little ones copy so much of what we do. I caught Khloe making grunting sounds when she bends over to pick something up!
Now that's an eye opener.... :-)

Oh how sweet that she wanted to emulate you both in your morning reading habits, right down to the glasses. So cute!
I'm so glad you shared your sister's talents with us. Her table is so beautiful and the colors just make me smile. I can only imagine how pampered her guests felt. How nice that you could all get together again.
