Thanksgiving weekend digest

Hello! How was everyone's Thanksgiving? We went to my sister's in North Carolina, like we did last year. It was great....all the kids played together, the food was fabulous, and it was just so nice to spend time together. We hadn't seen them since last Thanksgiving so it was wonderful to go down again. Did I take any pictures there? No. Sigh. I guess I was just otherwise occupied so I never thought to get the camera out. My sister and I did a little shopping on Black Friday...we didn't hurry, we went to Target at 11am when the crowds died down. We both got what we were looking for so it worked out great.
We drove straight through on Saturday, and were home by 5:30 p.m. I spent the day yesterday doing laundry, food shopping, and putting up the Christmas decorations (inside). If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you'll recognize this...
My "12 Days of Christmas" wall hanging that I made a couple of years ago. Those little pears were a pain to make but I love how it came out!
I realized I have a lot of tabletop items but not a lot of wall decor. So when I was at Joann's today, I snapped this cutie up...
Seriously?! How adorable can this be? And their Christmas decorations are 50% off. Nice! I also got this three-plate wall hanging...
It's from the same collection as the first one. I swear, I could have bought everything in that line. I also got some Command hooks to avoid making holes in walls (you're welcome, dear!). I'm hanging the "Seasons Greetings" picture in-between the kitchen and the living room, and the plate thingy upstairs in the hall.
By the way, I will have another Gooseberry Patch Early Bird Review in the next couple of weeks. This one will be for the upcoming book, "Fresh From the Farmstand."
Stay tuned for a chance to win your own copy! Have a great day!

  1. Hi Jen! I was hoping you guys weren’t sick again cause you’ve not posted in a long time. I realize in blogworld, that’s normal for some folks. I myself would have trouble posting every day!

    Glad you had a good visit to your relatives in NC. It’s too far to go for just a day or two. My parents used to live down there and we would go for a week when we visited for the holidays.

    Lucky you on your Target purchases! They are cute!

    BTW, I LOVE your Christmas-y theme for your blog!
