Happy Thanksgiving!! What an exciting time this is for my family! Thanksgiving day has always been such a special day to me … LOTS of cooking to do and preparations to be made, but whether we are having a lot of guests and extended family or just a few of us, it is so special!
We have SO much to be thankful for, which reminds me … Hannah is doing a “what are you thankful for?” linkup, and anyone who leaves a comment listing some things they are thankful for will be entered into a little giveaway! This opportunity ends tomorrow so be sure to pop over to this post, and tell us some things you’re thankful for! Come on … we ALL have things to be thankful for! Speaking of being thankful for things, I recently came across these quotes:
“We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather recognizing and appreciating what we DO have.”
“It is not happy people who are thankful, it is this thankful people who are happy.”
“What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked God for yesterday?”
“The things you take for granted, someone else is praying for.”
Today I’m sharing one of my new favorite outfits with you! This outfit always makes me feel feminine and girly … I don’t know if it’s more the layered, lacy top or the spiral skirt, or both together. Probably both 🙂
I just got the skirt from Goodwill for $4 and the top came from a thrift store for $1. My mother bought the jacket for me about 9 years ago … I think I’ve had it longer than any other clothing article, and there’s a good reason for it! The material is velvety and so soft! The t-shirt came from eBay for about $3.
I bought the headcovering in Israel for about $5, and I am wearing Lilla Rose bobby pins. Speaking of Lilla Rose, stay tuned for a huge black Friday sale coming up!
I found this stray kitty locked up in our garage late one night after being away for a day, and she’s been hanging out around here ever since! She is oh so sweet 🙂
I put my dogs inside for the pictures but after we had just finished trying to get the cats away, someone let the dogs out too – double trouble!! So I gave up trying to chase them off and decided they’d just have to be part of it 🙂
My favorite doggies in the whole wide world! Please excuse their messy hair – they all really needed baths!
Do you see the cedar trees in the background??? We have some beautiful big ones along our road!
I made the necklace and bought the bracelet for $2 at our local thrift shop. Please excuse my “I’m about to freeze out here!” grin 🙂
I got the shoes from French’s (a western/cowboy boot store) for $21. They are soft leather and so comfortable!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this post, and remember to let us know what you’re thankful for!
With lots of love – Abigail
