Hello Laurie!
I really like all your great Thanksgiving goodies. The mosaics are great. Have a good week...

susan said...

Laurie-One day I am going to try a mosaic--I always love yours! My favorite thing you have in the pictures is the "we are blessed beyond measure" plate, but the Indian in the canoe is a pretty close second. How exciting that you are helping Michael with the legal end of her book! Have a good week :)

I love your mosaics.....your pilgrims are so sweet. And I love your cotton pickin' tablescape too. You are oh so clever.

Hi Girlfriend...

Ohhhh...your home looks so beautiful, Laurie!!! Of course, I knew it would...I always love coming to your place because you decorate so beautifully for the holidays! I love how you strung the pretty black & white checked ribbon across the fireplace to hang your cards...so pretty! And...all those sweet pilgrim people! I think my favorite are the little pilgrim people where he has a turkey in arms with his foot propped up on the pumpkin! They're really colorful and just adorable!!! Your mosiacs are lovely...I do believe you are the "Queen of Mosaics", my friend! Are you having Thanksgiving at your place this year?

I'm so glad that you came by and took a peek at my faux fireplace! Thank you so much for the sweet compliments...and yes, I feel very blessed to have such a loving and talented honey! Hehe! Well Darlin', you have a marvelous week and take care! I'll talk with you later...

Love ya,
Chari
