A little bird told me

Thanksgiving is my favourite holiday.
What can be sweeter than simply taking the time to appreciate all that is good in your world. This year and week has provided some wonderful surprises including  one of my creations being featured in a recent Brave Girls newsletter.  The little bird is holding a tag saying expect miracles and kindly supplied by Crafty Secrets.

Happy thanksgiving to family and friends in Plymouth or the USA.  Sky Watch Friday is one of the things I can be grateful for, a reason to keep an eye on the horizon for new things because you never know what good things there are to find. Click the link to see what 100s of bloggers from all over the world have found in their view of the sky this week. This week I found on the Plimoth Plantation web site lots of information about the history of Thanksgiving in America. It is my favorite holiday and in honour of the spirit of the season, I am opening my home to all orphaned pies, 1/2 pies, lonely pie slices are very welcome here.
