I'm Truly Grateful

My creation

Just a little fun magazine cover that I made up last year. Things are getting a little crazy around here with the upcoming holiday, and the fact that I hurt my back while bagging groceries earlier in the week (Gah!) so I'm just going to take a few days to focus on family, and see you on the weekend.

May you and your families have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. And to everyone outside the US, enjoy your week, and know that one of the things I am most grateful for this year is the gift of your comments and friendships. Thank you so much. I am blessed!


By the way, make your own magazine cover at Big Huge Labs. :)


  1. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Mary! I hope you can let someone else do the work and let your back rest for the next couple days.

  2. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! I wish you an abundance of family, food, and love! Love your "cover" story. Back to the kitchen for me!

  3. Have a blessed Thanksgiving. I hope you're better soon.

  4. November Blessings to you!

    The Magazine cover from last year is beautiful. Very Nice! Like the brown transferware dishes.

    God bless you real good,

  15. Hi Mary:

    Hope you enjoy your holiday with your loved ones! I have been light on posting lately--tennis team, basketball team, clarinet lessons--gosh, kiddie life just gets in the way! I know your son will be home as will mine--I just want to hug and hug him ("Aw, Mom, c'mon!" is all I'll hear!)

    Happy Turkey Day-

  17. Mary,

    The magazine cover is wonderful.


  18. Mary,

    We're heading there soon.
    Don't you worry...we'll cut the just sit right here.
    Now - everyone... let's raise a glass to...
    (we don't even need a reason)

  19. Have a very beautiful Thanksgiving, and although we have already celebrated our Cdn Thanksgiving, I am still thankful for people like you who share their lovely thoughts and photos...

  20. Happy Thanksgiving to you all! I am SO thrilled to have found your blog - it is a lot of fun and has a true community feel about it. Also, I really enjoy reading your advice on mosaics and such, and am anxious to have a look at how to make my own magazine cover! That should be fun. Your photos are beautiful and I enjoy looking at them. Thank you - from Vancouver Island. Michelle

  21. Take all the time you need Mary. I would imagine sitting at the computer might bother your back. Hopefully you'll feel a little better for Thanksgiving.

    Though I was able to see your photo in Google Reader for some reason I can't view it hear on your blog. Wonder why???

  22. Happy Thanksgiving, hope your back is better.

  23. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, have the best of time!
