  1. Kathy,

    Thanks so much for all the fabulous giveaways this week! Loved your glittered cones and your Thanksgiving tablescape! How lucky you are to have had your sweet sisters visit you for your 50th! I hope to travel across the Atlantic, to be with my family in Toronto for mine!

    Thanks for hosting!

    Happy Thanksgiving, to you!


  2. Kathy, I am humbled and blessed to have my post about growing Paperwhites featured. Thank you sooo very much! I truly am a nut about Paperwhites.

    I love what you are doing for your Christmas decor. I’m amazed at your talents. And I think that you just might be having too much fun! [wink]

    Hope your week is Extraordinary!!

  3. Thank you for hosting! 🙂 I saw your pinecones the other day but don’t think that I commented. They remind me of doing that with my mom…she’d glitter ( and let us help a bit ) the tips of the cones and we also did something similar to the acorns from our tree in the back…I think that we glittered the tops of them a bit 🙂 It brought back good holiday memories for me 🙂
