This Thanksgiving, we're staying home and keeping Rosie under quarantine. She's operating without much of an immune system. As sad as we are to miss the dinner at my sister's house, we're having fun putting together some ideas for a celebration of our own.
As I'm not such a fan of traditional 'harvest' colors, I decided to go with one of my long time favorites, chartreuse. Carnations are underrated, in my opinion. The simpler, the better.
Miss Sew & So was kind enough send along a parcel of magazines from the UK. We'd arranged a swap. Beautifully wrapped, she'd tied them with simple jute twine. I decided it was just the thing to re-purpose.
I can't tell you how much I appreciate all of your thoughtful comments of support in regards to Rosie. It means a lot to me. I'll leave you with a few words from St. Francis...
...grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand:
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive...
Wishing you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving, if you're in the States.
