Thanksgiving - 2014

November 27th

Too cute, probably the little girl wants out

and the kitty would love to come in.

Wow, now this is strange. I do see Mickey

Mouse on the larger window at the bottom.

And a donkey-horse hung by its ears and tail.

And the crosses? I would imagine vandalism

is why those are there. One would just wonder

why these stuffed animal were displayed on

this house?

Looks like a old work bench complete

with a handy sink.

As Fall/Autumn draws to a close, and not

liking what follows, I must admit I will miss

the colors and neat things the season displays.

Oh wow what a nifty pot holder for

Thanksgiving. I want one!

I love the patchwork and cute Scottie

dogs on this piece of work.

And a chocolate fix for your day.

Isn't this a neat pitcher?! I do

love the little lid.

Tell me who can look at this picture of

cuteness and not smile?

A nifty old bike that is going no where

soon with that flat tire ....
