Give Thanks With a Grateful Heart!

Monday, July 30, 2012



I found a nice carved frame this summer at a yard sale, but it was a not so pretty shade of  gold.  I painted the frame white and distressed it.  Than I added a piece of thin plywood that I painted with chalkboard paint.  For the longest time, I couldn't think of what I wanted to write on my chalkboard.  Then, today, I was going through my bin of "all things fall" and saw a little stitchery that said "Give Thanks".  

Immediately, I began to sing the song, "Give Thanks With a Grateful Heart".  I really love it when that happens - seeing something that triggers a song! 


Then I ventured up into my attic, which must have been over 100 degrees, in search of my cornucopia.   It was miserably hot up there, but "Give Thanks With a Grateful Heart" kept going through my mind!  I finally found the cornucopia tucked in a corner and brought it down into my 70 degree, air conditioned house!  I filled it with some stalks of dried wheat, walnuts, chestnuts, and faux fruit. 




It may be July and months from Thanksgiving, but it's always a good day to Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart!

  3. Beautifully done, as usual, Doreen. I really like the way you've draped the berry garland across your little chalkboard.

    Fall seems such a long ways off, here in the Phoenix area. But I am soooooooooooo thankful that eventually cooler days will come...
