Harvest Glow And Thanksgiving.....

Yummy....wish you could smell this candle, it is amazing! Carmel Apple, a lovely soy candle sent to me from Romona at Lots of Little Things... The candle was beautifully wrapped along with a sweet beaded pumpkin and lots of old school candies....you know the ones, mary jane, slo pok, bit-o-honey and some caramel and boy was it good!! :o) I tried so hard to get a clear picture of the flame, but to no avail,. But just for a moment imagine a melt in your mouth good caramel apple. The crispness of the apple, the smell of delicious caramel...delicious indeed!

I hope all of you had a most wonderful weekend and a fabulous week... I was quite productive I must say, and although I did not do much blogging I did do some visiting and I must share with you this most wonderful blog. Her name is Cielo and her blog is "house in the roses".... Now this is a new blog, she has only been blogging since October 30 and I so enjoyed her poems, her thoughts and the plain beauty of this blog. I hope you stop by and say hello....

Thanksgiving is fast approaching and I can feel myself getting excited... Family, food, sharing, smiles, words of thanksgiving , a special time for so many of us... I have already started to plan my menu... But one thing for sure I have to have plenty of cranberry sauce for my little grand daughter...she has already put in her request! :o) What is it about Thanksgiving that is special to you, and what is your favorite must have dish. The one you wait all year to enjoy, and enjoy it you will!!

It will be another busy week for me, as I am sure it will be for you...so much to do so little time. I will be spending lots of time in the studio, and when I cannot take it anymore I will move to the kitchen table! Change of scenery does me creatively good LOL! You all have a most fabulous week....

A loving heart is the truest wisdom

Smiles to you....

Good afternoon...I, too can just almost smell the candle. I do love candles.
You have such a way with words, Beverly...you seem to be a very talented lady.
Come back to see me anytime, ok?
Blessings,

Mmmm the sound of the candle scent smells like autumn and Thanksgiving! =) And the last photo of the flower is gorgeous!

Have a lovely week, Beverly!

Hi, Beverly! I can almost smell that lovely candle...and your photo of it is beautiful! Such a sweet treat--the candle and the candies! Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. And I've been able to bring this fine tradition to my family overseas here in Norway. I love all the food, preparation and gathering. I'm not fussy, but I have to have pumpkin pie and whole-berry cranberry sauce on the table. Can't wait! Have a great week dreaming of Thanksgiving to come, my friend. I'm off to visit Cielo's blog--thanks for the tip. ((HUGS))

Mary Isabella said...

Great post. I too like turnips but my favorite is the dressing and gravy. Smiles to yuo too and lot s of good wishes. Mary

Oh! Beverly...you rattled so many memories for me while reading your blog...Slo Poks...ummmm...I remember those from movie days as a child...it was the one thing that would last the entire movie...mom would always pick them up for us at the 5 & 10...

Your candle looks warm and inviting...and I think I smell it from here...your descriptions were perfect!

As for favorites at Thanksgiving (and YES Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidys)...I suppose it would be a toss up between the cornbread dressing/stuffing and giblet gravy or my sweet potato casserole...which really taste more like a dessert...I can't wait!

Thanks for sharing all your sweetness!

blessings...

My children can't do without my potatoe salad and cornbread dressing. I can change anything else on the menu but not those two things! LOL! Love scented candles. They are a part of home comforts here! I will have to go check out your new blog friend!
Stop by and see me when you get time!

clara said...

Yes, I can smell the fragrance over here too! :-)

I wish we had Thanksgiving here but perhaps the equivalent for us is the reunion dinner where anyone in the family gathers right before the new year for a big meal.

I love that pretty picture of the flowers and I've gone over to Cielo's, and it's truly a lovely blog.

And again, thank you for sharing the excitement with me on the blooms. It means alot to me.

Happy crafting!

Katy said...

I just popped in via Meg's blog. I read on your profile you're a grandmother - surely then, that photo isn't of you?! Because if you are a grandmother you look AMAZING!!!!

We don't have thanksgiving over in the UK, but I do hope you have a wonderful one.

Such beautiful photos. I love scented candles, and that one sounds delicious. At the moment we are enjoying the scent of "Plum Crumble" which is as yummy as it sounds!

I was certain I could smell the aroma of the candle while I visited your blog just now.
It was wonderful!

And, I'm so glad there are others who take time to give thanks and enjoy the present season. I love Thanksgiving best of all the holidays.

KJ said...

Very pretty photos! I'm with Miss Shabby on the smell-o-rama thing... Your description was so yummy, I was smellin' it!

Your granddaughter has good taste! Believe me, when I know someone has a gift for cranberry sauce, I stand in line to place my order!

I will definitely check out your recommended blogging site. This community is growing so fast and attracting some very fine souls!

Hugs, KJ

I wish i could smell it too!
I love little candles, and i put them everywhere in my house. I spend a lot of money on candles i would think..
I am looking forward to see more of what you are working on in your studio.

And thanks for nice comments on my blog, i really appreciate it!

The candle looks delicious! I'm getting hopeful about Christmas and the festive season, it's such a happy time for me. I'm glad you're feeling hopeful too :)

I can almost smell the candle in my imagination!

Kimberley said...

Mmmm, caramel candles. Those always make me think of my husband-- we still have the caramel scented candle that was burning the evening that we decided to officially begin dating :)

As for Thanksgiving, my mom's dressing is a must-have! She bakes cornbread the week before, and then I go out and pick the sage when we start mixing it. We always argue over how much red pepper it needs: I always say "more"!

Hugs to you, Beverly-- you always inspire me to think good thoughts :)

Beverly,
I'm SO glad that you're enjoying the candle-they do smell delicious don't they? Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, it's so much less stressful than Christmas, it's all about just being together. My favorite dish is my mother's cornbread dressing and gravy. I've watched her make it all these years and mine still doesn't taste like hers. I think it's the love she adds. Have a wonderful day.

Mmmmm...lovely smell :) It just wouldn't be Thanksgiving without some fresh cranberry sauce. Actually I love cranberry anything. I always buy extra bags and freeze them to use throughout the year.

Lorrie said...

Such a warm and welcoming blog. Love the candle!
Since I'm in Canada we already celebrated Thanksgiving, but giving thanks can go on year round.
I love turkey stuffing.

cd&m said...

I can almost smell that candle! We don't have Thanksgiving here in England, but I have to say that I think it is a lovely celebration.
