So it's Black Friday, and I have a giveaway to pay attention to.....I am going to post the rest of the giveaway, and then YOUR job is to comment once again, and get other friends to comment, sort of like a vote for you, but don't tell them. Their comments get you additional entries, don't you know! If they are good friends, then they won't mind!! ;)
So here's the last of the giveaway....remember so far, there is a Holiday Crafts magazine, a book by Debbie Macomber entitled A Good Yarn and .......those yummy tea bags....are you sensing a theme here?
Well, in case it's not obvious to you, and I'm sorry I cannot send the comfy chair and ottoman with this giveaway........the idea is for you to find a free hour or so and RELAX.......the magazine for inspiration (that's my game!), the book for enjoyment along with a mug of tea......and because you are going to think of ( a million) things you need to do while sitting there enjoying, a magnetic list pad to write them on, so you don't have to jump up and pay attention to them right then, and a pack of note cards to let a friend know you were thinking of them. Oh, I guess you'll be needing a pen, won't you??? (I am easily distracted.......) This is NOT to be confused with Christmas cards, which can cause undue stress if you're like me.....it's for a thoughtful note to encourage a friend, that's all. Or to thank someone for something they've done for you, or meant to you....you know something that brings a smile to your face and a warm fuzzy to your heart......absolutely NO stress involved in your hour, ok???? So enjoy, and I'll be posting tonight or tomorrow morning, depending on when my dinner guests depart! ;) Have a great Black Friday! I hope it's stress free!!!

I'm also a little overdue in my giveaway....I promised to have the giveaway on YESTERDAY.....where DID the last two days go???? But I've decided to make this a black Friday giveaway, as I'll be HOME rather than out with the many shopping, and I'll have plenty of time to post the last item, and draw the winner by the end of the day. The only requirement is to post a comment about what holiday projects/plans you have going on.....and if you refer someone, which I hope you will do!, have them tell me you referred them, and you get an extra chance to win! I'll try to post the last few items of the giveaway tomorrow evening, when I'm pooped from stuffing the family (I don't stuff the bird, wink!) and then I'll draw on Friday evening.
Most of all, I wish you a blessed Thanksgiving Day in whatever you are doing. Perfection is overrated, so just enjoy what comes your way!

I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday intending to get some silk flower stems to update an arrangement I have in my den. You know the drill.......new carpet, get things clean and back in the room, and you begin to notice things that could use a little tweaking! So tweaking was on my brain! I got to Hobby Lobby, and lo and behold ALL the fall decorations were 80% off!!! So I found a few little goodies like a great white pumpkin and a cute little apple green one, some gorgeous fall leaves and stems and a little HARVEST sign. A huge bouquet of fall leaves and stems for all less than $20....at 80% off you can imagine/figure out what the regular price would have been!
And since the regular stems were 50% off as well, I got a whole bunch of stems to redo/refresh my den arrangement.....I was in BARGAIN heaven! Wahoo! I'll be sure and show a before/after picture of my refreshed arrangement! Stay tuned!!!
And get yourself over to HL today to score some of the bargains....next Fall you'll be glad you did!

A Bountiful harvest........I hope you feel life is abundant. I hope that you see all the blessings in your life. I hope the heavy burdens and cares do not choke out the realization that we are so privileged. We are well provided for, and well protected. Many of us have freedoms that are unusual. Many of us have abundance of things-- food, clothing, hobbies/crafts to enjoy, beauty of surroundings that inspire us. Many of us are blessed by our blogging friends that we've not actually met, but enjoy a relationship with!
Sometimes we just need a little prodding to bring perspective. I know I do. I need a regular reminder that the cares of my world are minimal in comparison to the plight of others. Many struggle with health, with depression, with the burden of the fear of the unknown. But I pray that YOU will know the ONE who holds the future, that YOU will be able to rely on HIM, and that you will enjoy the abundant life that only HE offers. Have a blessed, abundantly wonderful day!

Just after Tom finished the backsplash I couldn't wait to get the camera! Of course, this is brand new, pristine and without ANY of the accoutrements it takes to run a kitchen. This is why model homes look so great....no one LIVES there or cooks there! So I thought I'd give you a peek before I put everything back in.There are some funny shadows going on from the late afternoon sun, so that's what you're seeing..... Isn't it lovely?

Anyway, enjoy the view, and I'll be back
with some views of the countertops
and backsplash, and the rest of the RE-DO.
Have a great Wednesday and relish the fact that
there are no more political ads bombarding your day!

I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make its boast in the Lord; the humble shall hear it and rejoice. O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together!
Have a blessed Sunday!
