Golden Sunday Morning

It's a quiet Novemeber morning and we are getting into the week before Thanksgiving. Menu planning is in high gear. Going to start to get out some of my special Thanksgiving serving pieces and my Johnson Bros. turkey dishes.Might do a fast polish on the silver, iron a few of my brown and orange gingham napkins, pick some rose hips and make a wreath for the door...that sorta thing. I got this new book yesterday while I was at Barnes and Noble "The Elegance of The Hedgehog" by Muriel Barbery.I love what it said on the inside cover. " This is a moving, witty, and redemptive novel that exhalts the quiet victories of the inconspicuous amoung us." Well, that got my attention. I also took up crotcheting this week. I picked up some white organic cotton yarn and a crotchet hook at Michaels ...watched a You Tube video on the chain stitch and I am off.The postcard of Thansgiving is an old vintage one that has been sitting in my kitchen window for the month of November and the big turkey is from the cover of an old menu dated 1915. Now we need to set the date to go and do a little Thanksgiving grocery shopping. John and I make a big deal out of getting the turkey every year. We go out to lunch and then go to the market. Suppose to rain here on Thursday...that would be the perfect day. We'll make it Thursday.


  1. Just stopping by and wishing you a WONDERFUL week !!!

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog - your Elegance of the Hedgehog made me think of my post entitled Words that make me think dated 28 September.

    Glad you stopped by and hope you have a great Thanksgiving.


  3. Thankyou for visiting my blog, & leaving me a comment. Good luck with your Turkey shopping.
    We don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in Australia. We do have Australlia Day in January, & that is a holiday. Since it is usually boiling hot BBQ's are the normal food.

  4. I always love the sound of Thanksgiving .....a delicious meal , good company and no presents ! And then loads of time to shop for Christmas .
    And I'm so admiring the casual confidence in your buying a crochet hook , watching a video on You Tube and just CROCHETING .....I've been trying to master it for years and still can't !

  5. Keep me posted about the book, I to like what the inside cover said. Good luck with the crochet, I expect to see cozy afghans and slippers for the feet.

  6. How festive! I can't wait to see the Thanksgiving spread you come up with. I'm traveling to my sibling's house for Thanksgiving this year so I'm off the hook...though I might still do a mini one after we get back just so we can have leftovers. Thanksgiving without leftovers is like Christmas without presents!


Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by. I appreciate all your kind comments more than you can know.
