Thankful thoughts…


As the end of my favorite month of October approaches, and the start of a new month is right around the corner, I am reminded of that word that comes up so often this time of year…THANKFUL! Just like everyone else, I have both good and bad in my life but I believe every day of the year we need to think about and focus on what we are thankful for. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I have decided that every Sunday evening through the end November I will be making a post about just that- drawing from the events of the week prior. Most will be light hearted but sometimes, I may get a bit serious as well.

After another amazing photo shoot yesterday, I am reminded once again how thankful I am to work such wonderful gals – we tease each other and joke around a lot, but we also know that we have each others back!

I am thankful that we meet the most delightful homeowners like Loretta Spiak last weekend in New York. Many of you already guessed it was our blogging friend from the sneak peeks I showed already. For those that haven’t met her yet, stop by and say hello ~here~ and tell her how much you enjoyed a few more sneak peeks of her gorgeous home.

And here are some sneak peeks at the shoot that we did on Cape Cod yesterday at the wonderful prim home of Lana and David Testa.

pumpkinonbowlrackLana has been in the prim world for a long time and I had met her MANY years ago when she did juried craft shows in my area. She is back into making prims again under the name Winterberry Primitives. She is so talented! I am thankful that she made us each our own little witch to take home…470

Can you see witch magazine they are all reading? They have great taste, don’t they? They must get it from Lana’s hubby David…


Speaking of good taste, I am thankful for the tasty treats Lana served us before we headed home. 699

I am thankful for clear skies, pretty foliage and light traffic as we made our way to and from the shoot!

This past week. Mr Red Door and I took Lili for two of her immunizations. I am thankful for modern medicine that can do so much to keep this sweet little girl healthy!!!


I am thankful that unlike our ancestors, we don’t have to kill our own goose to enjoy a hearty meal. I am thankful that my friend Carol told me about Ginger Cazan and this reproduction redware platter. I had to order one for myself ! Click ~here~ to see more of Ginger’s pieces. 052

I am thankful that Mr. Red Door has provided so well that I COULD order this.

I am thankful for the power of prayer. A blogging friend needs to be lifted up in prayer and I am thankful I am free to do just that.


And last but not least for today, I am thankful for all of you. Thank you for stopping by and sharing your stories and comments with me. I’d love to have you join in and post your thankful thoughts each Sunday – or pick a day that works for you. Let’s flood the blogging world with thankful thoughts!!

Until next Sunday - prim hugs, Grammee Linda
