A Homey, Thankful Day

image {free download from Crafty Secrets…here’s where you find it}

Hello, dear friends…

The turkey’s in the oven, the fireplace is on, candles burning, music fills the air…warmth, love and gratitude all around…


Just thought I’d pop in real quick to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving Day and to share a couple more autumn-hued cards made earlier in the week…


All paper and images here are found on Crafty Secrets’ new “Creating with Vintage Illustrations” CD…


I told you this would be quick today!

Life really is a gift, isn’t it?


And I am so very, very grateful.

So very grateful to all of you, too…for all the friendship, inspiration and beauty you share on a daily basis all throughout the year.


Happy Thanksgiving, one and all!

  5. Julie, I don't know how I have missed all these posts! They never came up in my reader and so today I came to check and see how you were! It did seem unsual that you hadn't been posting anything. Oh how wrong I was! You'e had so many lovely posts and I have missed them! Nevermind, I have caught up now! I have so enjoyed all the family pictures, the tea room visit, your girls, your ancestors, YOUR CREATIONS! You are so talented. I love reading about your family history and all the pictures that you share with us and all that you create. I wish you and yours a very blessed and beautiful Thanksgiving weekend holiday! Love to you from away over the sea! xxoo
