Our trip up to Maryland for Thanksgiving was one of the most thankful happenings of the year. Getting to spend time with my sister and her kids, my sister-in-law and her girls, boyfriends and girlfriends, old haunts and familiar surroundings . . . it was all a blessing. Thanks to the Maryland gang for their hospitality. Perhaps a new tradition?
For the place setting namecards, I created Christmas keepsake ornaments. Inspired by pinecones my Mom brought back from the North Georgia mountains.
On the way home, we stayed the night in Mayberry, NC. Mt. Airy, NC is the birthplace of Andy Griffith, and so the hub of the town is named Mayberry and was just about as quaint as sitting on Aunt Bee's porch with a piece of blueberry pie.
(Thanks to Karen, Kasey's mom, for the wonderful pictures!)
Home today after being gone a week. Let the Christmas decorating begin!
My vintage floral tin collection gets some holiday lovin' with colored lights.
