Mande also made this small acron pillow when she was learning to use Mimi's embroidery machine . . . before long "The Monogram Monkey" was in business!! The first Thanksgiving after getting my machine, I embroidered the turkey napkins along with some pumpkin ones that I didn't bring out this year. The pumpkin tassel is the latest in Mimi's new addiction.
Our first Thanksgiving on the acre Aunt Lynn brought Mimi this beautiful little tray. Don't you love what it says?
"With grace surround us. With laughter bless us. With abundance fill us at this table of family and friends."
Mimi took this picture last week as I was driving back home (yes, I stopped the car and took it). I started thinking about the seasons changing, especially those seasons of our lives. Supposedly, the earth's seasons are equated to those of a person's life . . . if that's the case, Mimi's guessing she's in this most beautiful season ~ not the shiny, fresh, brand new season of spring or the hot, busy season of summer fun ~ but the season of glorious color when at every turn something takes your breath away. IT IS A WONDERFUL SEASON TO BE IN!! But Mimi's just hoping my life's season of color lasts a little longer than the color that WAS in my back yard ~ I'm never ready for the cold of winter.
Have a Happy, Blessed Weekend, Everyone!!
