Thanking the days

We spent our Thanksgiving days at Nana and Papa's house.



Did you know Sarah Hale was responsible for making Thanksgiving a national holiday? Thank you Sarah Hale!


We spent lots of time doing artsy crafty things. Like pin curls.



And red lipstick.




And fun little embroidery pieces to eventually be made into a quilt.





And cool stained glass coloring sheet thingies.




You can still get in on the book bundle giveaway here. Mr. Random Number Generator will pick the winner tomorrow.

I love the pin curls!! My Mom use to do our hair that way. Then we would sleep with a pair of undies on our head to keep all the pins in. Good memory! I will have to do that withmy little girl.I bet she would love those springy curls!

Love the pin curls and lipstick! I can't wait until my little one is old enough to want this, let alone sit still long enough for me to do it to her hair!

Wow, flashback on the pincurls! Great camper by the way. I was just going to dig out from a huge box of every possible embroidery image you could have that my grandmother saved to get an easy one to teach my daughter with. What lovely family memories you are creating for those beautiful girls of yours.

Pincurls, yes, and how about those rag curls? My mother did those for me, too. How old does that make me?
Hugs to you Dana, thanks for sharing your life.

We love playing beauty parlor at my house. It is always fun to put on makeup when you are little. I can't wait to see what you do with the little embroidery blocks. They are so cute.

Thanks for celebrating the life of a great New England lady who worked in her own way to make a difference.

Having lived in Plymouth MA for many years it will always be one of my favorite holidays. What could be better than a day set aside to remember all that is good in our lives.
