Thanksgiving flowers from the kids for me!

Well, Thanksgiving came and went in our little corner of the world. It seems like a long time since we have had turkey and I guess it really has been. The family gathered as well as one of my older sons friends and we all had a lovely Thanksgiving dinner.

The chatties are giving thanks too!

Life of Faith doll Laylie and American Girl Kirsten (whom is going to the A/G archives soon!)In the photo above, Chatty and Molly are posing on Loretta's front porch in front of her wonderful display of chrysanthemums...if you look really closely, there is a tub of begonias in full bloom peeking out from behind the front planter! Amazing for these parts in October to have them so healthy and lovely still!

In the lower picture, Isabelle's Chatties in yellow were happy to come to tea as were American Girl Molly and the Chatty Girls!
Loretta's American Girls Molly and Emily were modelling their spiffy twirl skirt outfits Loretta made for them...aren't they just the cutest things?

On Thursday Of this week my friend Loretta (from the House of Houben blogspot) invited her sister Leona, another doll buddy Isabelle and myself to one of her fabulous teas. We haven't had one for quite some time due to our very warm summer and then the ongoing construction nightmare taking place next to the House of Houben (see Loretta's blog for details!) Despite the hammering and drilling going on next door, we all had a great time but I can certainly sympathize and understand why Loretta feels the need to escape her place for awhile each day!! I will attach a few photos from the tea...Loretta does up the best tea parties around...and as you can probably see by the table, you never leave hungry! Happy Pink Saturday for any of the "pinkies" stopping by....I am kind of focused on the lovely fall colors at the moment but will be back to pinkness soon!

Oh How darling the little Chatty Kathy dolls holding up the sign, and how darling they looked greating me on the front porch. Lovely post. Wishing you a wonderful weekend.
