Feeling Thankful in November



November has a way of turning my thoughts to the many things in my life that I am thankful for.  I think as the weather cools and we are inside more  ... as the days grow shorter ... as we prepare for the upcoming holidays ... the focus centers on making memories with those we love ... our family & friends. 


Cozying up our nests takes on new meaning as we work towards making home a warm and comfortable place to share with our loved ones.


I suppose as we go about our daily tasks moving toward our Thanksgiving holiday, it makes sense that thankful thoughts would
come to mind.


I have been enjoying the lists that some of you are making  ... one thing you are thankful for ... each day ... for the month of November. 



While I know I won't get my act together enough to make my own list, I will be enjoying yours and I will be thinking thankful thoughts as I go about my day.  In fact, today I'm feeling thankful for thrifted treasures like the placemats above and the vase with the acorns on it.


Oh, and backyard flowers that haven't been hit by frost yet. 

Thinking thankful thoughts in the month of November. :-)

  1. Me to Kim. I'm not organized enough to commit to a list, but I love so many things about this time of year. Frost has already taken care of our flowers, and our color is blowing down the street as I write this. Next, snow! :D

  9. That placemat is so perfect for your fall flowers and foliage. November is a perfect time to think of all the things we have to be thankful for, and to think of ways that we can be a blessing to others.

  13. I was thinking about how many people might have passed by that placement and vase at the thrift store, and then you come along, buy it, and make it into a gorgeous Autumn post. Really, now everyone wishes they would have purchased it, myself included. Beautiful, as is your spirit of thanksgiving.
