Happy Thanksgiving

"When I left my future seemed to stretch out before me like a straight road. I thought I could see along it for many a milestone. Now there is a bend in it. I don't know what lies around the bend, but I'm going to believe that the best. It has a fascination of its own, that bend." Anne of Green Gables

That is the last of the Anne quotes I have but a good one to share with Sky Watch Friday, you never know what you will find bloggers are going to share this week.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends and family.

Inspiration for this little tart is courtesy of Victoria magazine.

“Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose.” From the television show The Wonder Years

Collage in miniature for the Vintage Christmas themed Itty Bitty Book was a challenge. The pages are a similar size to an ATC with an allowance on the side for binding. Each participant creates their tiny page from different elements and photocopies X number of participants (in this group that is 35) and decorates each page. The lucky hostess will receive everyone’s contribution in a few days to assemble the books and distribute. A huge group for this tiny little book will mean it will be bursting at the seams with creative inspiration and excited to see what the end results will be.

Mandy you are an early bird. I love pictures with palmfronds. It makes the photo mysterious. It is a lovely compositon with the river. I liked the wisdom of the quotes. Take care and have a nice weekend. T.

As always, a fitting quote. I had to check your profile after I saw the palm tree. I guess I never knew where you lived. Beautiful silhouette!

Thanks for entering my blog drawing! *good luck!*

Sue McGettigan said...

Great photos, and those little book pages are totally adorable! The quote reminds me of a Tolkein quote, something along the lines of 'Still, around the corner there may wait, a new road or secret gate' - love that one, there's always something worth exploring around the bend in the road. There's a message for you on my blog this week :) Happy Thanksgiving.
