Happy Thanksgiving 2008

Wishing everyone that reads this a very Happy Thanksgiving!

This photo is so stately and symbolic of today, I just wanted to share this guy with everyone. He is a Bourbon Red turkey, which is an endangered heritage breed. We plan to have these on our farm when we "get there".

Isn't he a beauty!?

And here's a thought for tomorrow...BUY HANDMADE!!!

Here's a few links to help you find wonderful (many times, one of a kind) handmade gifts!

Brussel Sprouts

This is so original and beautiful! Time to play with food!

I found this beautiful creation via HouseMartin and Craftzine.

Yet another finished afghan! The name of this pattern is called Lumberjack Flannelghan and the pattern can be found here. I used Hobby Lobby's store brand yarn "I Love This Yarn". It's super soft...almost feels like chenille.

It's a gift for Christmas for *someone*. I hope they like it. ;-)

**It was a gift for my oldest brother that is a civilian working in Afghanistan. He LOVED it! He was so surprised that I would take the time to make something for him.
