happy thanksgiving

i wanted to wish all of my american blogging friends a very happy and blessed
thanksgiving day ... i am so thankful this day for the friends i have made here,
and for the encouragement and inspiration you have given to me ...

i don't have any cute thanksgiving images to share ... so i thought i would show
you something i made the other day for my Christmas tree using a vintage baby
bootie that i had ... i made two of these ... one is for a friend ... hers is a little bit
different than mine ... and i will wait until she has it before i share it here ...

i hope you all have a beautiful day!
