I hope you all have a wonderful day Thanksgiving with whomever you want to be with. Despite it's ups and downs in my life, I feel like I am blessed and so I am thankful for many things. I'm mostly thankful for my husband of 32+ years, my two great kids and their wonderful spouses and especially this year for my darling grandson.

Then there are the silly things I am thankful for like my rolling pin with the red handles above that I bought at Woolworth's in Colorado 32 years ago for my first married Thanksgiving. I love my rolling pin! I'm also thankful for antibiotics that made me feel better recently, for my home that I love, for good friends including all the bloggy friends I've made, and for life in general. Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. I love your rolling pin too. I still have my first one, my aunt gave it to me which makes it even more special. But mine doesn't have red handles, in fact it only has one handle but I still use it. I hope you have a peaceful Thanksgiving with your family.

  2. What a lovely post. I have days when I just feel so grateful for all I have. This morning, as I stood in my kitchen, which is old fashioned, but I still love as much as when I first saw it.

  3. Great post . . . I miss Woolworths - it was a treasure land for me in childhood *S*

  4. I sure hope you are feeling better by now! Your quilts are gorgeous, and that Christmas print is DEEEEvine!!!

  5. Your rolling pin reminds me of an old one I once had but passed on to my sister. It had been my grandmother's and my sister treasures it...I thought it was time to share, as I had a new one as a gift from my son. I'm glad we have Thanksgiving so we have a day set aside to remember to be grateful and give thanks.

  6. I love your rolling pin with the red handles! I remember Woolworths as a child ~ it was THE place to shop & where I went to buy marbles :-}.

  7. Oh, I love that rolling pin, too! Anything red always gets me. Glad to hear you are on the mend, and can't wait to see that Christmas quilt!

  8. What a perfect looking pie! I wish I could do pie crusts. I even have my first and only rolling pin (about 26 years old) but sadly it doesn't get much use.

    I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving!


I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
