Twyla on Tuesday

Hello dear ones!
November?!  Already?!  I could have sworn it was just April!
What a beautiful October we had.  It's sad to see it go.

 



We had our annual Halloween party.  I dressed in bunny ears and gray sweatclothes and
went as 'a gray hare'.  Sorry no pictures this year.  I don't want anyone to see me in sweats:)




November makes me think of -
Lindsey being another year older,
the clacking of my knitting needles,
walking through leaves and
dark evenings.
Time to reflect on all we have to be thankful for.





These images are from my personal collection of vintage ephemera.  I know
how we all like our vintage images!  I hope you enjoyed seeing them and feel free to use
them in your crafts if you like.
I know you know how much I love old postcards.  Well, Thanksgiving postcards are
my favorites!  This is a particularly cute one.  I will share several with you this month.




I am already thankful for all of you.  Thank you for sharing so much
of yourselves with us!
Have a wonderful day and fill it with some magic!
Twyla

Those are all such beautiful images, Twyla! Vintage Thanksgiving is one of my favorite things, too...especially Pilgrim images.

Twyla, both of my children are born in November. A favorite month for me as well. I am so thankful this year to have my daughter home to celebrate the holidays with us. It will be such fun watching you enjoy the holidays with your family! Elizabeth

Twyla, thank you for such a welcoming post on a dark dreary morning. I am so thankful for the opportunity to read your wonderful ideas. I share your love with vintage cards too.

I am ready for November. My first born daughter will celebrate her birthday this week and in my heart I will celebrate too. Thanksgiving is such a wonderful holiday. I am committed to making it stand out from its shadow between Halloween and Christmas!

Thanks for sharing.

Hello Twyla and Lindsey. First let me say that I LOVE your blog! Thank you so much for sharing so much with all of us followers!! I have tried emailing you but for some reason it won't work, so I hope you don't mind if I post this here...I was writing because I am in the market for a new all in one printer and was wondering if you could suggest one or give me some advice on what to look for. I have been bitten by bad choices in the past and have decided it would be a good idea to ask someone who must do a lot of copying!!

Thanks so much in advance!!

I can't wait to get our home computer back so that I can hook it back up to the printer so that I can start doing some paper crafting with lovely graphics. Thanks for sharing. Best wishes, Tammy

Thank you for sharing your images, Twyla! This is the first year that I really want to add to my Thanksgiving decorations, and postcards are the perfect and cheap way to do it!
