Ready to Give Thanks

    I just wanted to stop in and wish my American friends a Happy Thanksgiving! I’ve been busy getting ready, and being my grandpa’s apprentice! My Grandpa is the family cook— was one of 5 boys and the one his mama taught all her cooking secrets too.
   We cooked the turkey yesterday, and are boiling the bones for broth to make the dressing tomorrow. Looks like we will be all set to go for my first time to host the feast tomorrow! I feel suddenly so grown up 😉

   This time of year is also a great time to count blessings, and I have so much to be thankful for. My family, wonderful friends, a beautiful home that we will grow old in (and perhaps garden every square inch of the yard??? Or most of it?) healthy happy kids and an amazing partner to share it with. 
   I am also so thankful that I get to do this and share it with you. Being able to paint the things I love is such a wonderful gift and I don’t take it for granted. I’m also so grateful that others enjoy the things I make. I am truly, truly thankful for all of it.

  So— thank you— for helping make this dream of mine be a reality! I appreciate every order, every commission, every sweet comment that just warms my heart. You are lovely. Thank you 🙂

   May you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!~

  3. A very happy Thanksgiving to you, Heather. (and I still so wish you'd sell that lovely picture in your header – I'd buy the print in a second! nothing wrong with horizontal.) You are making me wish I'd cooked the turkey breast ahead of time; but I already did the gravy, sweet potato pie and cranberry sauce, so I'll be okay.
