Eclectic Mix

Well, it is Wednesday evening and I've got my cranberries ready for tomorrow to
take to my niece's house for our family dinner. Work is done for the week, my daughter is dog sitting and the dogs and I are sitting here watching HGTV an catching up on reading some of our-I mean, my favorite blogs.

I recently bought this wire 3 tiered basket and being influenced by some of the blogs who do eclectic displays I wandered around my house, poking into drawers and boxes and gathered up a variety of objects to place in the baskets.

Some of them include an old silver baby cup, an antique bracelet or two, a broken leg from a china doll, a sugar and creamer, crystal prisms left over from my dining room chandelier, a small brown transferware dish from Stoke-on-Trent, a bit of lace, some old photos,an old clock face and an old bingo card. Some paper money from Hong Kong, an old draw pull, a little leather box, some keys, a fancy hair comb. Take a little time to see how many you can see.

Hope your Thanksgiving is a blessed and relaxed day and your week end is great.
From our Home to Yours... Happy Thanksgiving!

Dear Miss Sandy,

I think it's been a while since we've been in contact. I just wanted to say that I finally remembered to add you to my "Places I like to visit".... and boy, do I ever. Your photos are so amazing. Thank you for sharing your Christmas with us. I absolutely love the "old" tree topper angel. She's absolutely gorgeous! I love her. You know, when I see stuff like that, I think about what God's angels must truly look like. They must be glorious... but also, their purity and holiness... just think, God created these beings just to surround Himself with beings of purity to praise Him... but not only this... but to protect us too.

Anyhow, my dear Sandy... let's keep in better touch. I've enjoyed my lengthy evening looking over so many different peoples blogs from days past.

I hope you are destined for a blessed day on Saturday.

It's Saturday here, but it's 2:00 AM. I'm a night owl.

Hugs to my B/C Survivor Sister,
Penny Sue
