Giving Thanks

Giving Thanks
Tomorrow is the beginning of our ~Giving Thanks~ celebration. Let's take these next four days (Monday-Thursday) to prepare our hearts and homes for this wonderful time of year. Each day I will share a Thanksgiving project, daily cleaning challenge and a poem.

I would love for you to join in the fun! Mr. Linky will be available for you to sign and here are some things you could share:

-What you are thankful for
-Thanksgiving traditions and memories
-Decorating ideas
-Your menu
-Cleaning/Organizing "before" and "after" pictures
-Anything having to do with Thanksgiving!

Everyone who participates and signs the daily Mr. Linky will be entered into a giveaway at the end of the week! Each day you participate, your name will be entered. If you participate two days, your name will be entered twice, join us all four days for four entries, etc.

The prizes are a collection of gifts for you and your home, to welcome in the Christmas season...


Two Christmas plates and matching mugs; perfect for hot chocolate and cookies.


Peppermint Room Fragrance


Pinecone candles

Two berry wreath candles

A Christmas kitchen towel, a selection of 6 Christmas teas, chocolates and mini scottie dog notecards.

Feel free to use the "Giving Thanks" button on your blog. Here is the code:

I am thankful for gathering with family for Thanksgiving. For the past 18 out of 20 years we have gathered together at the beach. We cook and play games and shop and of course eat. Families make everything special.
